"Once Upon A Midnight Dreary: The Influence of Literature in Batman: Born On A Monday:

Alfred Bester and Paul Reinman's character Solomon Grundy, who first appeared in October 1944's All-American Comics 61, includes his literary reference into his original origin story. Written in 1842 by James Orchard Halliwell, the nursery rhyme reads "Solomon Grundy, / Born on a Monday, / Christened on Tuesday, / Married on Wednesday, / Took ill on Thursday, / Grew worse on Friday, / Died on Saturday, / Buried on Sunday, / That was the end, / Of Solomon Grundy. The DC Universe's Grundy was originally Cyrus Gold who was murdered and dumped in Slaughter Swamp. 50 years later, Gold emerges as a huge immortal strong beast whose first uttered "Born on a Monday" like Halliwell's children song. Due to this, he was given the name Solomon Grundy, turned to a life of crime with his first fight against the original Green Lantern, Alan Scott. Grundy becomes a villain to not just the Green Lantern Corps but also to other DC Universe heroes such as Superman and Batman. In Post-Crisis continuity, Batman and Grundy clash while saying lines from this nursery rhyme in tales such as Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's "Batman: The Long Halloween" and "Batman: Shadow of the Bat" and continue to clash in current comics (splash page to 2016's Batman (Vol 3) 2 by David Finch, Matt Banning and Danny Miki presented). Outside of comics, Grundy has made several appearances, from live action and animated incarnations of the Super Friends, to modern DCAU animated television series as a member of the Injustice League such as Justice League (voiced by Mark Hamill) and Justice League Unlimited (voiced by Bruce Timm), to video games such as Batman Arkham City and Injustice: Gods Among Us. James Orchard Halliwell's original 1842 nursery rhyme results in a grim week for Grundy, but this character has thrived within the DC Universe since the mid 1940s. ✌🏼💙🦇📚

Evening Gothamites! August 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the creation of Chuck Dixon and Tom Lyle's Batman character Stephanie Brown! Let's continue to learn more about the evolution of this character. Shortly after Batman stops training Stephanie (Spoiler) while Tim Drake (Robin) is in Tibet, on his return Tim and Stephanie have rekindled their romantic relationship. This short lived spark fizzes out quickly when a series of unfortunate events befalls Drake; Robin and Spoiler take on the villain Johnny Warlock (Bill Willingham's Robin 123, 2004) and when Robin believes he kills Warlock, this sends him into a deep depression. Batman (Bruce Wayne) talks with Tim and gives him the ultimatum that if he can't move on from his past mistakes, he can't fulfill the role as the Boy Wonder (Robin 124, 2004). In issue 125, Willingham brings Tim Drake's dilemma of keeping the Robin identity to a climax when Tim's dad, Jack, learns of his son's secret identity. Tim decides to become a civilian and give up the Robin mantle. Stephanie continues to use the guise as Spoiler until she sees Tim kiss another girl at their school. Learning Batman is in need of a Robin, Stephanie creates a makeshift Robin costume, sneaks into the Batcave and asserts herself as the new Girl Wonder (panels 2 and 3 from Robin 126 by Damion Scott and Guy Major) which the Dark Knight accepts despite Alfred's concern. For the next several issues (cover panel 1 from Robin 127 by Scott and Major), Batman trains Stephanie as the new Robin under the strict condition that she follows all his direct orders out in the field. When Stephanie disobeys him while they fight the rogue Scarab, Batman fires her as Robin and tells her to remove her items from the Batcave and doesn't expect to see her as Spoiler anymore as well (panels 4, 5 and 6 from Robin 128). After a very short time as the Girl Wonder, Stephanie wants to prove her worth to the Batman, which we will discuss soon in our celebratory session. ✌🏼💛❤️💚🦇📚

Afternoon Gothamites! Today (August 15), History of the Batman wants to wish actor @BenAffleck a bat-tastic 45th birthday! For us Bat fans, Affleck is the DC Extended Universe's current Bruce Wayne / Batman, debuting in Zack Snyder's 2016 film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" alongside Henry Cavill's Superman. Visually based on Frank Miller's 1986 arc "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns", Batfleck's "seasoned" Dark Knight brought the vengeful grit of the character to the silver screen that was overall appreciated by comic book fans. Affleck's Batman also cameoed in the 2016 film "Suicide Squad" and will star in Snyder's 2017 film "Justice League" hitting theaters November 17. Wish our current cinematic Caped Crusader a happy birthday! Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! ✌🏼💙🦇🎬🎉

Afternoon Gothamites! Today (August 16), History of the Batman wants to wish actress Julie Newmar @Julienewmarofficial a purrr-fect birthday! For us Bat fans, Newmar was the first to portray the femme fatale Catwoman on the 1960s live action television series "Batman" starring the late Adam West as the Caped Crusader and Burt Ward as Robin the Boy Wonder! Julie Newmar debuted in the episode "The Purrr-fect Crime", which originally aired on ABC March 16, 1966. Of course the two parter episode would not be the last time we see Newmar's villain; Catwoman will stand with The Riddler, The Penguin and The Joker as four of Gotham's most dastardly and devious criminals that only Batman and Robin can stop, making the tv series more iconic than ever in the late 60s. Julie Newmar's depiction of Catwoman set the foundation for future actresses in both live action and animation who bring to life this enticing character. Wish @Julienewmarofficial the happiest of birthdays and thank her for being an important part of Batman's mythology. Thanks for following and we'll have more History of the Batman soon! ✌🏼💙🐱🦇📺🎉
