Batman is a playable character and the main protagonist in Injustice: Gods Among Us and Injustice 2. He is classified as a Gadget User. His Batcave and Mansion are featured as Stages within the game.
Bruce Wayne was born in Gotham City, an only child to Dr. Thomas and Martha Wayne, and the latest descendant in the city's generationally prominent and wealthy Wayne family. One night, after seeing a rousing adventure film, the Wayne family exited the theater through an alleyway and was confronted by a street mugger. When Thomas tried to stop the mugger from stealing his wife's pearl necklace, he shot both Thomas and his wife right in front of 8-year old Bruce's eyes. Running away in fear of what he had done, the mugger was never brought to justice. After traveling the world, honing his skills and toning his body to absolute human perfection, he embodied his childhood fear and a premonition he saw at his window. He became the Batman.
When the wife of his best friend Superman was pregnant with a child, he was asked by him to be the godfather. After the Joker drugged Superman, causing him to murder his wife and child, he murdered the Joker right in front of Batman. True to his code, Batman fought against his tyrannical and murderous ways, forming the Insurgency to bring Superman's Regime to an end.
