PostSubject: The Dark Knight   Wed Jul 01, 2009 8:25 pm

Name: Bruce Wayne
Nickname/Hero name/ Villain name: Batman, The Dark Knight, or The Caped Crusader
Age: 33
Race: Human, Caucasian
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Hometown: Gotham

Eyes: Brown
Hair: Brown
Body: Aside from being very muscular, his body is very beaten and scarred.
Face: Sometimes he has a five o' clock shadow, he just doesn't always have the time to shave.
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 240

He has very many weapons and devices, too many to name...Making him a very tricky opponent...He has multiple types of projectiles, most of them being in the shape of his iconic batarangs. He uses weighted nets, sleeping gas, tranquillizers, tazers, grappling hooks, and many other devices...

Unlike Superman and most other costumed heroes, Batman is a human being who does not possess any superhuman abilities. However, he has elevated himself to near-superhuman status through years of rigorous training. Physically he is at the peak of human ability in dozens of areas, most notably martial arts, acrobatics, strength, and escape artistry. Intellectually he is just as peerless, being at once one of the world's greatest scientists, criminologists, and tacticians, as well as a master of disguise. Given his lack of superpowers, he often uses cunning and planning to outwit his foes, rather than simply out-fighting them.

In his secret identity, Batman is Bruce Wayne, a wealthy businessman who lives in Gotham City. To the world at large, Bruce Wayne is often seen as an calm and collected gentleman, he is a very good speaker and is extremely persuasive. Wayne is also known for his contributions to charity, notably through his Wayne Foundation. His true personality is only released once the mask is put on...Unlike his ally Superman he is in reverse, Clark Kent being the true personality and Superman being the mask...Bruce Wayne is the facade, while Batman is his true colors...He is a dark and reserved man, often described as cold and brooding. He can never fully trust some one, even his closest allies...Thus why he has come up with a way to defeat every single one of his friends in case they were to turn evil for any reason, or if they just needed to be stopped...He truly does care, though he has a poor way of showing it.

Early Life

Batman is the alter-ego of Bruce Wayne, a billionaire industrialist and philanthropist who was driven to fight crime after his parents, the physician Dr. Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha Wayne, were murdered before his eyes at the age of eight by Joe Chill. The killer was later arrested after fleeing the scene. Fortunately, medical doctor and social worker Leslie Thompkins was there to give loving comfort to the traumatized Bruce. He was then raised on the Wayne Manor estate by uncle Philip Wayne along with the wise and loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth. Bruce only had a few friends during his childhood.

Bruce Wayne swore an oath to rid the city of the evil that had taken his parents' lives. He spent his youth traveling the world, training himself to intellectual and physical perfection and learning a variety of crime-fighting skills, including chemistry, criminology, forensics, martial arts, gymnastics, and disguise.

At age 14, Bruce Wayne began his global sojourn, attending courses at Cambridge, the Sorbonne, and other European universities . However, he never stayed long and would often drop out after one semester. Beyond academia, Wayne acquired more "practical" skills.

While abroad, Wayne learned 127 major styles of combat, from Aikido to Yaw-Yan. Frenchman Henri Ducard made him an apprentice in manhunting. The ninja Kirigi, and other ninja shadow masters, schooled Wayne in stealth and the ways of the shadow warrior. African Bushman (the Ghost Tribes of the Ten-Eyed Brotherhood, among others) taught hunting techniques, while Nepalese monks revealed healing arts . He even learned ventriloquism from practioners of the art. His knowledge of so many varied disciplines has made Wayne an unconventional and unpredictable opponent. When he was 20, he attempted to join the FBI, but he learned it would be impossible to fight crime and evil within the legal system.
Enter -- The Bat!

After returning to Gotham City in his early twenties, Wayne made several harrowing and near-fatal forays into the world of crime-fighting before donning his now familiar costume. In part, the costume was inspired by another tragic accident of his life that would have a profound impact on who he would become — at the age of eight, he fell down a cavern, located beneath Wayne Manor (later to become the Batcave), that was swarming with bats. He was thereafter haunted by the event, despite the timely arrival of his father. After a particularly near-fatal brush with the criminals of Gotham (his last encounter before donning the cape and cowl), he sat in his father's study questioning his mission and seeking direction. A bat crashed through the window, and he took it as a sign that he should take on the appearance of a bat to strike fear into the criminal element, whom he thought to be "a superstitious, cowardly lot."

In keeping with the "dark" nature of bats, Batman usually operates primarily at night. Batman was considered an urban legend and not believed by the citizens of Gotham City to actually exist; however, Batman was "outed" in the War Games incident, when his live image was broadcast over the news as he made a brief daytime appearance in front of a violence-overtaken high school in Gotham.

Whenever he is needed, the Gotham City police activate a "Bat-Signal" (a searchlight with a bat-shaped insignia over the lens) that shines into the night sky.
