Thomas Wayne was a famous millionaire and doctor who lived in Gotham City with his wife Martha and his son Bruce.

In 1920, Thomas and Martha were killed by a robber named Joe Chill while they were walking home from a Douglas Fairbanks picture, leaving their son Bruce in the care of their butler Alfred Pennyworth. Sometime before the incident, while they were visiting Smallville to set up a free family planning clinic, Thomas and Martha were warned beforehand about their deaths through the Chronoscope that the Kents had in their possession, an event that would lead to their son becoming Batman. As Bruce Wayne later found out, Thomas and Martha chose not to avoid the tragedy, but rather to let the fates unfold so that their son can become a force of good for the city.[2]
