Summary
As a boy Bruce Wayne watches in horror as his millionaire parents are slain. This trauma leads him to become obsessed with revenge. After disappearing to the East where he seeks counsel with a ninja cult leader, he returns to now-decaying Gotham City, overrun by organized crime and dangerous individuals manipulating the system. The discovery of a cave under his mansion and a prototype armored suit lead him to take on a new persona--he becomes Batman, striking fear into the hearts of men who do wrong
