James Wayne was the father of Bruce Wayne and husband of Martha Wayne. He was murdered alongside his wife by a seaman who had gone mad, when he attempted to calm the man down. This trauma inspired his son to become a world-famous psychologist, eventually establishing himself at Arkham Asylum.[1]

  • James Wayne is clearly intended as a counterpart to Thomas Wayne, Batman's father in regular continuity.
