- — Thomas Wayne, Sr. src
Thomas Wayne, Sr. was the husband of Martha Wayne and father of Thomas Wayne, Jr. and Bruce Wayne. Thomas Sr., unlike his prime version, was a very nervous man who ended up botching almost every surgery he was involved in, forcing him to constantly use up the family fortune to avoid lawsuits. According to Martha, Thomas had a "surgical fetish", hinting that he may have intentionally killed his patients for sadistic reasons.
Tired of his his father's incompetence as well as his mother's cruelty, Junior conspired with his brother Bruce to kill their parents in an alleyway to inherit the fortune. Junior, pointing the gun he obtained at his parents, blames them for wasting all of the money that was supposed to go to the children.
The plan goes awry, though, when Bruce backs out and begs his older brother not to kill their parents. The two children get in a scuffle with Junior dropping his weapon. All the while Martha continues to scream at her children, threatening to lash them when they are done. Thomas Sr. fails to notice their butler Alfred Pennyworth enter the alley, pull his own gun on them, and kill both the parents, on Junior's orders of course.
