Bruce Wayne is Batman, a brilliant crimefighter helping rid Gotham City of its criminals in conjunction with the Gotham City Police Department.

After witnessing his parents' deaths, Bruce Wayne trained to become Batman, with the help of his butler Alfred, adopting a costume to strike fear into the hearts of criminals and appropriately bat-themed gadgets — including a Batmobile and Batcave. At some point Batman became good friends with Commissioner Gordon.

Batman took Dick Grayson in as his ward and the boy helped him as Robin, the Boy Wonder. Soon after, Batman got more help in the form of Batgirl. Unbeknownst to him, she is Commissioner Gordon's daughter.

During his career as a masked crime fighter, Batman faced many foes such as The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, The Penguin, Mister Freeze, Ma Parker, King Tut, False Face, Bookworm and many others.
