I have just recently read Batman year one, and that arc tells us that Bruce Wayne is 25 when he first becomes Batman. So how many years have gone by since then? I'm thinking 15 or 20 years have gone by. That would make him between the ages of 40 and 45. What do you others out there think? How old is Bruce Wayne?

Like 45 or close.

A while ago somebody posted the birthdate of Bruce But it s been deleted ,I think it was 01/18/1971.

@hydro 300:
yea that could be right. but i was thinking at least a year or 2  into his 40's
#15 Posted by DeadlyWolverine (224 posts) - - Show Bio

He's fallen in the Lazarus pit twice, so deduct 10 years off his current age.

#16 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio
@DeadlyWolverine: physically he should be like 35 then? but actually 45.
#17 Posted by -Eclipse- (7588 posts) - - Show Bio

@DeadlyWolverine: Really? 
 
Hah, learn something new every day...

#18 Posted by DeadlyWolverine (224 posts) - - Show Bio

I was thinking more along the lines of being physically 30, and really 40. But they play around with the ages alot in D.C. they made Dick the same age as Babs.

@DeadlyWolverine:
well THAT would make him younger, but that still wouldn't affect his age in years. he still would be 40 or whatever age he is but just look younger

He's young in The Batman and Batman the brave and the bold. BUT HE'S A TINY OLD MAN IN BATMAN BEYOND!!!!!!!!!!!
#24 Posted by Green Lantern 2814.5 (64 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say between 35 and 40

#25 Posted by brewski420 (278 posts) - - Show Bio
@Green Lantern 2814.5:
yea thats pretty close, but i'd say no younger then 40 tho
#26 Posted by Son_of_Magnus (15258 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say in his late 30's. He was already in his 20's when he adopted Dick who was 12 when his parents died now Dick is roughly 25 so that is like 13 years

You really can't logically apply age to iconic  characters in comics. 

#28 Posted by Storm Rider (166 posts) - - Show Bio

Exactly what Green Skin wrote. I think Grant Morrison summed it up best when this exact question was addressed at San Diego Comic Con. Comic book characters are paper people, they exist in a fictional universe, and they don't age like we do. Batman is 71!

#29 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

He SHOULD be like 45, but he went in Ra's pool and it took some years off.  
 
I think after that he's about 35-38

#30 Posted by Backlash88 (7 posts) - - Show Bio

Realisticall, he's about 40. Year 1 says he started at age 25. Unless the new DC52 has changed some things (ie. Bruce graduated high school early at age 16, which would not be a stretch, given that he's the world's greatest detective, and thus would have to be pretty smart). That would then allow him to become Batman at age 23 as opposed to 25. Give him his 4-5 years as a solo hero before taking in Dick, which would take him to about age 27 or 28. Again, would the new DC 52 have increased Dick's age from 12 to say 14 to shrink the age difference between the two? Dick would now be in his early 20's. Between 23-25 realistically. So, if there is a 15 year age gap between the two, Bruce would then be 38 to 40. Jason Todd would be in his early 20's (20/21) and Tim around 18. Damian now is about 10 or so. Bruce did fall into the Lazarus pitt a couple of times, so that probably cut his physical age down a few years into that of a male in his early 30's. DC now can't age Damian into an adult, since that would then push Bruce to at least age 46 to 48. Bruce and Oliver Queen are in similar situations in terms of their age. You like to think of them as 30 year old hero's, but Bruce has been a big brother/father to Dick for about 12 years now, while Ollie has a son in Connor Hawke who is an adult.

Depends on what continuity you are going with and where you begin his timeline...

If Batman Year One is still roughly accurate then Bruce is 25 + 6 or 7 years... or 31 or 32 years old in the DCnU

If you are talking about pre-Flashpoint he's 50ish. and you can literally lay out his entire life and such over the course of those 50 years. And even with that you need to squeeze to get all Batman into that timeline. That's why the DCnU timeline is garbage... you literally can't fit the timeline into those 6 or 7 years.

This is all so confusing I thought he was 32

#33 Posted by batshrine (994 posts) - - Show Bio

@Primmaster64: He never adopted Jason Todd, he only became his ward

#34 Posted by FatihBATMAN (1389 posts) - - Show Bio

hes as old as DC wants him to be :P

#35 Posted by batshrine (994 posts) - - Show Bio

Post Crisis - Batman started at 25 and ended at 48 years old. The catch however is that he was in lazarus pits twice, and got his back magically healed, so my prediction is that he still remained in a 30 year old body

Post Flashpoint - He's only Batman for 5 years, he can't be that old. we dont have a starting age since year one isn't canon anymore (and before everyone freaks out many elements of it are, but the story itself is not, example essen never existed in post flashpoint). but he cannot be older than 30, so i would personally put him at around 27-28ish in post-flashpoint.

#36 Edited by leonkarlen123 (4462 posts) - - Show Bio

He is not more then 40. 37 in my guess because in the dark knight rises he said he's age

#37 Edited by Z3RO180 (6547 posts) - - Show Bio

@batshrine: I think you are right cause him and supes are around the same age

#38 Posted by Jake Fury (18620 posts) - - Show Bio

Bruce should be around 28 in the DCnU.

#40 Posted by dagmar_merrill (8604 posts) - - Show Bio
