Batman is the alias and second identity of billionaire Bruce Wayne, the protector of Gotham City fighting to uphold justice and order.

"It’s not who I am underneath; It’s what I do that defines me." – Bruce Wayne his Batman persona

Early Life

When he was eight years old, Bruce's parents took him to see the Mask of Zorro. Outside the theater, Bruce's parents were both killed in a robbery by mugger Joe Chill. Thomas' last words to his son were to not be afraid. Bruce was later found by the police and was comforted by James Gordon, who would be his greatest ally as Batman.

World Travels

Bruce abandoned formal education to "study abroad", all the while preparing for his crusade as Batman. He studied fighting techniques with Ted Grant, Richard Dragon, Lady Shiva, and Slade Wilson. However, Bruce finished his training with Ra's Al Ghul, and had to battle his master to save Gotham City. This supposed betrayal would come back to haunt him...

Establishing himself in Gotham

"I seek … the means to fight injustice. To turn fear against those who prey on the fearful." – Bruce Wayne's mission as Batman

With his training complete, Bruce returned to Gotham and regained control of Wayne Enterprises. While remaining CEO, he entrusted the day to day affairs to Lucius Fox, who also supplied him with his Batman tech. Wayne Enterprises once again became one of the most prosperous businesses in the world. Rival competitors consist of KordTech,Queen Industries, and Lex Corp. Before donning the batsuit, Bruce went out as a nameless vigilante. During this time he reacquainted himself with his city, and gained an ally in James Gordon.

Beginning the Bat

Lucius Fox developed Bruce aprototype armored car and an experimental armored suit. Bruce also established a secret base in a cave underneath Wayne Manor. During his first mission, the world's greatest detective uncovered a conspiracy involving the Gotham Mob, the Scarecrow, and Bruce's mentor Ra's Al Ghul and his League of Shadows.

The Joker's Reign of Terror

"I see now what I have to become to stop men like him." – Bruce Wayne on the Joker

Bruce encountered his greatest foe when a criminal known only as the Joker began to pick off public officials. The Joker got his kicks by bringing trying to bring Batman down to his level, and nearly succeeded in doing so when he killed one of Bruce's oldest friends and drove Harvey Dent into becoming Two-Face.
