When a young Bruce Wayne witnessed his socialite parents shot dead by the mugger, Joe Chill, he vowed to bring justice to the criminals infesting Gotham City. He then trained himself in detective skills, sciences, engineering, escape artistry, martial arts, and criminal psychology. But Bruce realized that those skills would not be enough to stop the superstitious and cowardly from plaguing the streets. While he was in his study reflecting on his parents' deaths, a bat flew into the window, both startling and inspiring him at the same time. He would become the bat to strike fear in those who preyed upon the innocent. And so, Bruce then took his mantle as a crime fighter and became known as Batman.
At first, Batman fought "plain-clothes" villains without any super powers or gimmicks until about six months into his career when he encountered Mr. Freeze, a scientist specializing in cryogenics-turned villain trying to rescue his dying wife. Batman's rogues gallery expanded to include other villains, many of which are insane, such as Bruce Wayne's former best friend hideously scarred, Two-Face, The Riddler who challenges Batman's intellect rather than his strength, Gotham's gentleman of crime with an obsession for birds and umbrellas, The Penguin, and his arch-enemy, The Joker, among others.
While Batman's rogues gallery grew, his allies did too to include his butler, Alfred who tends to Bruce Wayne's needs behind the scenes and serves as his confident, Tim Drake, better known as Robin III, Dick Grayson as Nightwing, or formerly the first Robin, Police Commissioner James Gordon, and his daughter, Barbara Gordon who became Batgirl, Jean-Paul Valley as Azrael, a college student who had been brainwashed by a religious organisation, and The Spoiler, or Stephanie Brown who is the daughter of a minor villain, as well as occasional allies such as Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) and Catwoman (Selina Kyle), who are both allied with and against Batman and his other allies at times. Batman also leads the Outsiders, a rag tag group of Super Heroes operating in Gotham City, which includes heroes who are not directly allied with Batman otherwise, such as Katana.
Batman is also a founding member of the Justice League, an organization of Super Heroes untied to handle threats too big for one hero. Other Justice League members include Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Aquaman, The Flash, and occasionally, Batgirl, Nightwing, Huntress, Zatanna, Supergirl, Black Canary and Shazam!.
Bruce Wayne's love interests include Talia Al Ghul, the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul and the mother of his son, Damian Wayne; and Selina Kyle (Catwoman). He has also shown attraction to Wonder Woman, Vicki Vale and Zatanna.

"After a hard-fought battle, I brought home the gold Gotham was hoping to have and donated that said gold to charities and the Gothamites who wish to have a better future. By about a month later, I became elected mayor of Gotham City and, by inauguration day, used the Lazarus Pit to become young again. After a photoshoot with my Gothambines, Diana included, Batman was offered the Key to the City and helped me end the corruption of Gotham for good."
