After his parents were killed by a criminal, young Bruce Wayne was driven by an urge to understand what had happened so he could somehow deal with it. This search led him all the way around the world and back, picking up a surprising amount of knowledge along the way. It is unknown if he served in the war.
Returning to Gotham, he hit on the idea of turning himself into a force in the night, something that would frighten criminals into leaving their sinful ways behind. He became the Batman, a gun-toting vigilante.
