Title: Didn't ANYONE remember to get a birthday cake?

 ???

I can't BELIEVE I'm the only one in this Forum so far wishing Superman a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

No wonder Supes still looks so young -- he only celebrates a birthday every four years!  See:

Hey, guys!  Long time no read!  :)

I DID remember Superman's birthday, and even posted it on my blog!

And here's the card, too!  :)

Another four years has gone by, so it's time to revisit this message thread...  ;)

"Happy Birthday, Superman!"

I see that Supermanica has been restored just in time for the celebration.  Thanks, Rao!

I tried spreading the word to everyone I talked to on Monday and of course got mostly quizzical looks! Happy Birthday to Supes and the old gang here!

Thanks for spreading the word, TELLE.  See you again on this thread in 2020!   ;)

I spent a bit of time trying to track down an image that showed Superman's birthday to be Feb. 29, but didn't know off-hand where it has been mentioned. Was it only in the calendar?

I think first in a letter column in World’s Finest 164 and then in For the Man Who Has Everything:

Yes, February 29, 1984.  Note that the original Earth-One Jason Todd officially became Robin that same month in Batman #368, so he was VERY "new to the job" when introduced to Wonder Woman in "For the Man Who Has Everything".  But he proved to be a quick study -- figuring out how to defeat Mongul with a potted plant!   ;)

That was probably Pre-Crisis Jason's finest hour.  I still hate what they did to him afterwards...   >:(

Jason Todd REALLY hated what was done to him after the Crisis!   ;)

Good thing I arrived a day early -- was tough climbing up to the Fortress door.  In the past, there were times when snow would almost block the keyhole.  Must be global warming...

Amazing -- my old access code still works.  It took a while for me to remember it, but I'm back with a cake again.

Hmm... no trace of my last visit, not even the cake platter.  I guess SOMEONE still drops by the old place besides myself.

Well, time to light the candles.  "Happy Birthday, Kal-El."

Whew.  Now for the long trip back.  Don't know how many times I can continue this ritual, but--

Wait.  The candles are out already?  Where's the cake? 

All right, hope you enjoyed it.  See you in another four years!

Happy Birthday, big guy. Wherever you are.
