Happy birthday, Superman!
The idea that Superman’s birthday is February 29 initially began as a lark. DC editors explained tongue in cheek in comic book letter columns that Superman remained eternally youthful because he was born on Leap Day, February 29, which occurs only once every four years.
The in-story birthdate has jumped around, and has varied depending on if you’re talking about the date he was born on Krypton (which would have a whole different calendar, anyway) or the date he arrived on Earth.
