Origin

The boomerang is a weapon and hunting tool used for millennia by the indigenous peoples of Australia. Versatile and reliable its reputation for returning to its thrower when it misses its target have been its greatest claim to fame.


Given the nature of his parents' death at the barrel of a handgun, Bruce Wayne desired a weapon that was not only effective, but non-lethal when properly used. In his travels around to world studying to be a world-class detective and fighting man he must have developed the skill to make one of his most formidable weapons his Batarang.
