Bruce Wayne was a man of many options, suited for almost any task he was forced to make hard decisions during the end of the world. In 1979, Bruce witnessed the death of his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne at the hands of a criminal named Joe Chill, which set in motion the events of his life that led him to become Batman. In 1994, Batman found out that Joe Chill and three hit men who worked for Frankie Falcone were murdered by someone with enhanced strength using their bare hands. In pursuit of the man who did this, Bruce discovered that his father Thomas actually survived the mugging and had gone into hiding to keep his son safe. Bruce was greatly displeased to hear what his father had become, even using strength-enhancing drugs to commit the murders of Joe Chill and the hit men, and from that point on refused to let his father have any further contact with him or his family.
Prior to the Apokolips War Bruce Wayne fought crime as Batman and eventually fell in love with former villain Selena Kyle who went by the alias Catwoman. The two got married and eventually had a daughter that they named Helena Wayne. Bruce originally did not want his daughter to become involved in his hero life believing it would endanger her, but ended up making her Robin when the Apokolips War began. During the war Bruce lost his wife Selena at an unknown point in time.
When Steppenwolf brought the Parademons to Metropolis and across the world with boom tubes he wasted no time destroying Gotham City as well. On his last day, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman devised a plan to destroy the remaining towers erected by Steppenwolf. Batman died after giving his last words to his daughter as the virus he planted caused the tower he was in to explode.
