Calendar Man is fascinated by dates and calendars and usually always revolves his crimes around what day of the week it is or in the case of the day having a special anniversary he will plan his crime around that day.Aside from his unsuual M.O., however, it's unclear he has any real "powers" to speak of.
Calendar Man was created by original Batman writer, Bill Finger. His visual form is somewhat inconsistent, however, as he wears different costumes which correspond to the crime of the day that he is commiting. Though somewhat infrequently used, he does have a main costume which has various numbers (meant to represent days sprouting from the shoulders).
He has traditionally not been taken as a serious threat by either the characters in the DCU or DC's audience.
He is probably best known for his appearance in The Long Halloween, where he was a Hannibal Lecter like figure, offering insight in Batman's search for serial killer who used the holidays as his M.O. Like Lecter in Silence of the Lambs, Calendar Man knew who the killer was and kept this information to himself.
In recent years comic book writers have tried to make Calendar Man much more of a greater threat to Batman as told in the third issue of the 80 Page giant Batman Special Editions (July 2000) titled All the Deadly Days.
