Bruce Wayne is the Gotham City-based vigilante known as Batman, considered to be "the world's greatest detective". Batman is a member of the Justice League and has mentored younger heroes like Robin and Batgirl. His hound Ace also assists him in crime-fighting.
Batman and his sidekick Robin bumped into Mystery, Inc. as tracking down Man-Bat out of Gotham City. The teen detectives helped him find and turn Man-Bat back to normal as well as stopping a gang of bat-masked robbers. The Dynamic Duo were impressed enough with them that Robin invited them to the next Mystery Analysts of Gotham City Meeting, and Batman recommended them to Diana of Wonder Woman when the Amazon needed to a supernatural expert detective. He also thought of calling them when a group of villains masking as ghosts sneaked into the Hall of Justice.
In gratefulness for their collaboration in the Man-Bat case, Batman and Robin decided to help them find who provided gangs of crooks with costumes and gadgets to pose as ghosts: The Spook and False Face. What should have been a pretty simple case became an annoying, life-risking affair when Bat-Mite turned up to have fun.
This version of Batman first appeared in Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #1 by Sholly Fisch and Dario Brizuela and is an adaptation from the original Bruce Wayne/Batman created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane which first appeared in Detective Comics #27.
