|~ Kate Kane about her cousin.|
Bruce Wayne (born February 19) is a well-known billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and former owner of Wayne Enterprises. He is the son of the late Thomas and Martha Wayne, the nephew of Jacob Kane, and the cousin of Kate and Beth Kane. As Bruce, he presents himself as an irresponsible playboy and womanizer, though that persona is nothing but a façade that he created in order to cover his double life; sometime after his parents' murders, he swore vengeance against criminals, an oath tempered by a sense of justice for which he trained himself physically and intellectually to become Gotham City's protector, the vigilante known as Batman, or simply the Bat, stylized as the "Dark Knight".
In 2015, Bruce disappeared for unknown reasons, leading the local crime rate to rise higher than ever and the Bat-Signal to be finally switched off in 2018 to signify his permanent absence. After discovering his secret identity Kate took on her cousin's mantle and became Batwoman.
