Bruce Wayne, the filthy rich American, is the alter-ego of Gotham City's caped crusader. Batman is a DC Comics comic book superhero that made his first appearance in 1939! Believe it or not, he was originally referred to as "the Bat-man."
With the help of his partner, Robin, and police commissioner, Jim Gordon, Batman fights various villains in the fictional city of Gotham City. Some of his arch-enemies include: the Joker, the Riddler, the Penguin, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Scarecrow.
Bruce Wayne lives in the mansion known as Wayne Manor where he is assisted by his butler, Alfred, and beneath the mansion lies a series of secret caves, known as the Batcave. His main vehicle is an imposing black car that is affectionately referred to as the Batmobile - but he is also known to use his Batplane (or Batwing), Batboat and Batcycle.
Bruce Wayne is a mask I wear, that I've been wearing since I was a child… but it's become a liability, so it's over. Bruce Wayne and his troubles aren't my concern anymore. The only thing that matters now is my mission. Nothing will stand in the way anymore.
