"All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy."

"I am Vengeance. I am the Night. I. AM. BATMAN."

Bruce Wayne was a normal young lad with his future ahead of him. Until his socialite parents were gunned down in front of him by some random mugger while walking home from watching Zorro, of course. This, among other things, woke Bruce up to the wretched hive that Gotham City really was. As an unusual way of coping with this, Bruce dedicates his life to stamping out evil and corruption, in Gotham and out, using his inheirited fortune to fund his activities and aided by his butler, Alfred. The rest, they say, is history.
