Calendar Man was a 60s Batman villain who didn't have any abilities aside from a weird obsession with dates. He had one of the corniest costumes ever.Originally Posted by Jedi_Master_Guyute
A few years ago, DC released a Batman one-shot comic where they tried to redefine Calendar Man (as they've done with Penguin, Killer Moth, and other could-be-lame villains). The first two stories were flashbacks of Calendar Man proving how lame he was. He then decides to take a persona based on the Mayan (?) culture, since their calendar said the world would end around that time. So he starts a huge campaign of terror, the main point of which was crashing a loaded 747 into a main Gotham City highway during rush hour. Batman can't prevent this from happening, but thwarts him from further acts along the same line, and the last we see, he's in Arkham (since his danger level has been significantly upgraded), laughing because he's learned another ancient culture has a calendar on which the world ends a few months after his scheduled release. . . years from now.
Funny thing is, he still was damn lame. And, since the book came out in late 2000 or early 2001, it quickly became retroactively tasteless due to the use of a passenger jet as a weapon of mass destruction.
