September 21st is regarded as Batman Day, which is an annual celebration initiated by DC to celebrate the billionaire superhero. It’s a good initiative. However, Marvel’s Thor writer Jason Aaron jumped on the wagon and pointed out how Thor has one day dedicated to him every week.
Thor Writer Humorously Tweets Against Batman Day
Enjoy your one little day a year, Batman. Last I checked, Thor gets his own day every Bor-damned week.

“Enjoy your one little day a year, Batman,” Aaron tweeted through his official account. “Last I checked, Thor gets his day every Bor-damned week.”
Unsurprisingly, Aaron wasn’t the only one who tweeted about Batman Day in a humorous distaste. Matthew Rosenberg also tweeted a Happy Batman Day, directing the tweet to his Batman, Marvel’s Moon Knight. They don’t mean anything bad out of it, however, it’s still entertaining to see this feud.
Events That Transpired During Batman Day
Batman Day took place on September 21st, which was a Saturday. The celebration spanned across comic book stores, libraries and even schools all over the world, with events that included comic giveaways and DC related announcements. This year, the comic giant revealed the new creative team that is expected to take over the Batman’s ongoing tv series. They also released the limited editions of Batman’s YA graphic novel, Nightwalker as well as the initial issue of The Batman Who Laughs. DC also highlighted the occasion by lighting up cities around the world by shooting Bat-Signals into the sky.
Pam Lifford On Batman Day
“The Bat-Signal is easily one of the most recognizable images among all superhero iconography and this is going to be a remarkable sight as we transcend borders, languages and cultures to bring us all together with this single experience,” Pam Lifford, the current president of Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences, revealed in a recent press release. “We are proud to send up the Bat-Signal on Batman Day because it is an important beacon of inspiration that makes us all believe that it’s possible to take hardship and turn it into something good. Batman Day is a global celebration for all the fans.”
