Bruce Wayne is the son of wealthy doctor Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha. He was a friend of Oswald Cobblepot until the latter's family fell into tragedy and leading to Oswald moving to the United Kingdom in which they never seen each other for the next twenty years.

At the age of nine, Bruce and his parents went to see a movie. After the movie, they were held at gunpoint by a mugger named Joe Chill, who then proceed to kill both Thomas and Martha. Bruce was left to be raise by his family's butler, Alfred Pennyworth. The deaths of his parents drove Bruce to becoming committed to ridding crime and corruption that plagued Gotham City. Within twenty years, Bruce becomes a vigilante known as the Batman.

Bruce became friends with District Attorney Harvey Dent, and a ally of GCPD policeman James Gordon. Bruce's crusade on crime is supported by Alfred and inventor Lucius Fox.

The Children of Arkham

Bruce became a sponsor for Harvey Dent's mayoral candidacy against Hamilton Hill. He is also introduced to Harvey's girlfriend Selina Kyle, who Bruce immediately recognized her as Catwoman.

Bruce was later reunited with Oswald Cobblepot, who tells him about the "revolution" that he is starting in Gotham and asking Bruce to be on the right side when it starts. Troubles soon arose for Bruce in which damning evidences emerges that his parents were affiliated with crimeboss Carmine Falcone, who earlier tried to forge a partnership with Bruce.

As GCPD Lieutenant James Gordon leads an investigation on the Waynes about any possible connection to Falcone, Bruce, as Batman, investigates Falcone, discovering a bloodbath at one of his chemical plants. Discovering a device left by Catwoman, Bruce was able to decrypt it and discover evidence needed to take down Falcone. Bruce confronted Falcone as Batman, who is captured and reveals a massive bombshell: the Waynes are the biggest mobsters in Gotham City.

Bruce later returned to Crime Alley, where Alfred reveals to him that Falcone was right about the Waynes being corrupt people. Alfred was planning on leaving, but their deaths forced him to stay behind and take care of Bruce, hoping to atone for their sins. With this information, Bruce is forced to revisit the night his parents were murdered and realizes his idealized memory of them blocked out important things - that Joe Chill wasn't a random criminal who attempted to mug his parents, but was sent to assassinate the entire Wayne family, but failed when the police showed up. Even more, his father's last words made him realize that Falcone set this up. Confronting Falcone in a hospital due to his being roughed up by Batman, Falcone attempts to appeal to Bruce, claiming he genuinely liked the Waynes and even considered Bruce family. He denied putting the hit on the Waynes, but before he could reveal who, Renee Montoya suddenly murdered him. After stopping her from attempting to shoot Gordon, Bruce accompanies Gordon and Dent as they tried to figure out what happened to Montoya. Discovering evidence of her being drugged and learning from Montoya that it was Cobblepot who drugged her, Bruce sent the samples to the Batcave while he alerted Gordon of what he found.

Bruce later confronted Cobblepot as Batman and hearing from him that he intended to kill Falcone and also admitting on planning to attack Mayor Hill. Furthermore, Cobblepot plans to kill Catwoman, who has been working for Cobblepott, as a liability. After engaging in a scuffle with Cobblepot's right-hand underling Blockbuster, Batman escaped and attempt to warn Selina.

Bruce arranged a meeting with Catwoman and managed to help her fend off Cobblepot's thugs. Soon afterwards, Bruce and Alfred decrypt the phone of one of the thugs and uncover a voicemail between Mayor Hill and Cobblepot. Bruce confronted Hill and learning from him that he had hired Cobblepot to leak information about the Waynes in order to discredit Dent's campaign. Hill's actions became his own undoing when Cobblepot, under the guise of The Penguin, led a group of armed men in taking Hill and Harvey Dent hostage during a public debate. Cobblepot then proclaimed that he is part of a terrorist organization called the Children of Arkham led by a masked figure known as Lady Arkham that is dedicated to exposing and eradicating the corruption in Gotham City. Batman joined in a reluctance alliance with Catwoman to rescue the hostages and battling the Children of Arkham. Hill was killed by The Penguin but not before confessing in front of Batman that he was responsible for the deaths of the Waynes. The Penguin and some of the Children of Arkham escaped during the chaos, and the aftermath left by Lady Arkham publicly release a full list of the innocent people who were forcibly committed to Arkham Asylum by Thomas Wayne; further damaging the Wayne family's reputation.

The week following the attack on the debate, Harvey Dent became mayor of Gotham by default and the Children of Arkham posing a significant threat to the city, which Batman shockingly discovered that the Children were secretly monitoring the GCPD's communications by using Wayne Enterprise's technology. The fallout of the Waynes' sordid history caused the board of directors of Wayne Enterprise voted to remove Bruce from CEO of Wayne Enterprises and be replaced by Oswald Cobblepot.
