Timothy "Jace" Fox is the formerly estranged son of Lucius Fox. After the establishment of the Magistrate and the apparent death of Bruce Wayne, he succeeded him as Batman.
Timothy Fox is the son of Lucius Fox and his wife Tanya, along with his siblings Luke, Tiffany, and Tam. His father, Lucius, was the President and CEO of Wayne Enterprises, making their family one of the wealthiest in Gotham. Becoming estranged from his parents and siblings, Tim was sent to a military academy. After graduating from the academy, he seemingly put off going home. Tim would later return to Gotham, now going by the name of Jace.
Gotham City became a police state under the rule of the Magistrate, a private security force patrolling Gotham. The Magistrate would hunt anyone wearing a mask with deadly enforcement including the original Batman, Bruce Wayne. After the apparent killing of Bruce, Jace would take on the mantle of the Batman. Donning a suit reminiscent of the original Batman, save for a mask that fully obstructed his face, he would go on to fight crime, placing himself at the top of the Magistrate's kill list.
The Next Batman
Jace chased down a criminal, defeating the man after a brief skirmish. Confronted by two police officers, Jace took out his grapple gun. He would take the criminal's mask, saving his life, before leaving him in the hands of the police, to their surprise. Afterwards, perched on the top of a ledge, Jace briefly contemplated the state of his life. He would conclude that he was Batman and Gotham was his to protect, before heading into the city once more.
The next day, Jace would head to the hospital, intent on spending time with his sister, Tam, who was in a coma as the result of a relapse. His brother Luke arrived, shocked that he was there. After an argument with Luke, who admonished Jace for his decision not to return sooner, Jace left.
Later, Jace would confront the Bane-Litos gang in Hype territory. They were initiating two brothers, Eddie and Nestor, through the drive-by shooting of a rival gang member. After the kids failed to shoot a member of the Hype gang, Jace intervened, saving the man from the gang members' attempt to run him over. Distracting them into ramming their car into a truck, Jace took down the gang members while Eddie and Nestor escaped.
Chasing them into an alleyway, Jace pleaded with the two to let him help them before the Peacekeepers arrived, asking for their gun. Eddie gave Jace the gun, though the Magistrate's Peacekeepers were already there. With the use of a smoke bomb, Jace blocked the Peacekeepers' vision as they opened fire. Using his grapple gun, Jace saved both kids, escaping from the alley to the top of a building. When questioned about taking the pair to jail by Eddie, Jace replied with his intention to take them both to Children's Services.
After being wounded in another physical confrontation with a Magistrate's foot soldiers, Jace would go on to hunt down two masked assailants for mercilessly beating a man named Jershefsky to death in an alleyway. The perpetrators would surrender to Jace, revealing that they were actually a married couple who killed Jershefsky as revenge for grooming and kidnapping their pre-teen daughter. Conflicted by the revelation, Jace decides to protect the couple from the Magistrate and safely escort them to his contact within the GCPD so they can have their fair day in court instead of being gun downed in the streets by the Peacekeepers. 
The Battle of Arkham
Once Jace learned that Sarah Dowell, a young girl he rescued from human traffickers, was interrogated and killed by the Magistrate's Peacekeepers, the Dark Knight sought out Nightwing in his secret base of operations inside the now defunct Arkham Asylum, to officially join his Resistance movement and tear down the tyrannical regime oppressing their city. Refusing to leave Grayson behind in what would have been a suicidal last stand, Jace and Dick worked together to successfully defeat the legions of Magistrate soldiers surrounding the Asylum while publicly exposing Peacekeeper-06 of Sarah's murder in the process. 
Hunt The Batman
After being wrongfully implicated as the terrorist responsible for blowing a giant bat-shaped crater in Gotham City's Narrows which wiped out countless innocent lives in the blink of an eye, Jace set out on a mission to clear his name while being hunted by the newly promoted Peacekeeper Red who had been manipulated into believing Jace really was the culprit until the true villain, an insane prototype Peacekeeper named Warmonger, released every inmate at Blackgate Penitentiary. Discovering that Warmonger plotted to use the Mad Hatter's technology to brainwash every person in Gotham into waging a never-ending war, Jace would join both Jason and Astrid Arkham in stopping the homicidal madman before it was too late. 
With Warmonger defeated and Gotham's faith in Batman restored, Jason decided that instead of returning to the Bat-Family, he would keep his position as a Peacekeeper and become Jace's ally from within the Magistrate just like how James Gordon was to Bruce within the GCPD. To make their partnership official, Jason constructed a brand new Bat-Signal in a form of a deployable holographic projector that can blanket the sky with famed Bat-insignia, symbolically letting both their mutual friends and enemies know that true justice has returned to Gotham.
