Origin

As a child Bruce Wayne witnessing the murder of his parents, Thomas & Martha Wayne in Crime Alley by a two-bit thug named Joe Chill. That night the young Wayne vowed to become an avenger against crime.


After years of study and training, Wayne was attempting to develop an identity to exploit the fear and cowardice of criminals. As if in answer - a huge bat flies through an open window of his study. Inspired, Wayne becomes a creature of the night - black, terrible, a weird figure in the dark, an avenger of evil known as the Batman.
