Bruce Wayne was the Gotham City vigilante Batman.

He worked alongside his junior partner Robin and his friend Superman. They were on the trail of a criminal known as Automator. When they managed to corner the crook, Batman fell for the man's trap and was vanished with a special machine. For years, his friends and family thought that Batman was dead.

Eventually, a new criminal appeared. Using special gloves, the criminal performed amazing crimes and he even managed to cause permanent blindness on Superman. Golden Gloves then carried Superman to his hideout, where an elder Automator was waiting for him. It was then that Robin and Superman worked together to stop the Automator and they were schocked to learn that Golden Gloves was actually Bruce Wayne. The Automator explained that he never killed Batman, but simply transported him to his hideout, where he brainwashed him and used a special serum that would prevent him from aging. Once the Automator was behind bars, Robin decided to help Batman recover his lost memory.[1]
