November 18th Justice League Day

The Justice League are the Avengers of DC Comics. One of the leaders of the Justice League is no doubt Batman, or Bruce Wayne, a social climber, wealthy civilian in Gotham City. Batman first appeared in 1939, ahead of any of the other Super Heroes we are familiar with today. Even in the beginning he was Vengeance, the night… he was, and is, Batman! The caped crusader is one of the best known characters in the comic book world, along with Robin, helping the Justice League save yet another day for the common man.

How to celebrate – Get a Batman comic book. Learn more about the history of Batman. Visit Gotham City.

I could not find any real history of when the polka-dot came into being. It was probably right after some painter dribbled their paint on their smock! The polka-dot became very popular after Minnie Mouse appeared on the scene in 1928.

Today you find them everywhere! It’s not like you can really miss them! Flamenco dancers did wear polka-dots in 1867 and in 1962 DC made a hero named Polka-dot Man! He never stood a chance.
