Need help from the experts! Does anyone know a site or blog about Superheroes actual Birthdays?

 I'm doing research for my volume three of Comic Book Trivia Facts and was wondering if you know of any websites that list the actual Birthday's of Superheroes? .

 DC Comics 1976 Calendar does llst many, but Mavel Heroes are not to be found anywhere, except Captain America (July 4th). Any ideas?

 I actually contacted Marvel.com with no resonse back, so I'm kind of at a crossroads.

 Any help would be appreciated!!

Thank you for the proof! I really appreciate you took the time to point this out. I guess I'll never have a complete list of Superheroes Birthday's, and like Craig pointed out, there have been so many revamps of these characters, it would be near impossble to make a 100% accurate list...still, I had the above list printed in my second volume and will update and add as many as I can if I find any kind of variable proof for! After all, when we break it all down, this is still supposed to be fun! Thanks again!!

Thanks again!! I will compile a complete (as much as I can) List of Superhero Birthdays for my Volume Three. I still find it hard to believe that Marvel, after 55+ years, have not actually given any defintive Birthdays for any of their characters. That still strikes me as odd!

I did find one or two additional blogs, but nothing concrete. I still can't get over that Marvel never actually assigned official Birthdays to any of their characters!

It's kind of surprising that it didn't come up somewhere over what for some of them is 50+ years, even on a form they filled out we saw or something. It's also interesting that no writer took the opportunity to make the character they were writing born on their own birthday.

But it's not that much of a plot point, especially when it dates a comic to a particular month if a hero celebrates his birthday. Some comics take an entire year to tell a few days' worth of story, so it could get confusing. Even then, they'd be best off not naming the date for the party or whatever the story needed.

Many of DC's birthdays are only registered on their calendar, not in stories, so it wasn't that major of a point for them either, and they used many more of those plot springboards than Marvel. I can see that it's an interesting idea and would appeal to people to find out which heroes were born on their birthdays, but it'd be a fairly random assignment of dates.

I agree absolutely! These will be conjecture,at best. Still, it's a fun topic!
