Martha Wayne was the wife of Dr. Thomas Wayne, and the mother of Bruce Wayne.

After seeing Footlight Frenzy at the Monarch Theatre with her husband and son, she was robbed at gunpoint. When Thomas interceded to protect his wife, both of them were shot in cold blooded murder by a second assailant, Jack Napier.

Martha's son Bruce would grow up to become Batman.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Gotham Globe headline reading telling of the murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne was dated Thursday, October 19, likely placing the date of their murders on Wednesday, October 18.
  • Sam Hamm's original script for the sequel (then titled Batman 2) had Penguin and Catwoman team-up to look for lost gold buried at the bottom of the Gotham harbor, which would then tie into why Bruce's parents were murdered years ago.
