Even though it's a fake Batman day created for marketing, September 26th is still the Batman day the world knows. The original Batman day is June 26th in the comics. Ssssshh! Don't tell anyone, it's a secret between you and me. This year marks the 80th year the caped crusaders cleans the streets from small-time thugs and psychopaths. As a celebration, Epic Games teamed up with Warner Bros. (owner of the Batman game rights) to create a special moment for Fortnite players and Epic Games Store users.
