Bruce Wayne lost his parents one cold Christmas night. Disappointed with a present he received a Nutcracker, Thomas and Martha took him to a Zorro movie to make up for it. When Joe Chill, hired by Lew Moxon, shot them down, guilt over how his tantrum lead them to go to the theater helped contribute to Batman's drive and focus on fighting crime.
He came to be an ally of Blue Beetle. On one mission they saved the Gibbles from Kanjar Ro.
Batman fought alongside Plastic Man against Gorilla Grodd on Dinosaur Island.
