Bruce Wayne Killed by His Father

Many people who have never picked up a comic book or when to see a Batman movie still know who Bruce Wayne is, and his story. Bruce Wayne watched his parents get killed by a crook/thug in the back ally after leaving a play. That event shaped his destiny and he used his significant resources/fortune from Wayne Enterprises to help him become the Batman.

Batman is probably one of the top three most well know super heroes of all time. While Batman will live on in spirit for the foreseeable future, Bruce Wayne's time as Batman is coming to an end after roughly 70 years. Perhaps the only thing more shocking then Bruce Wayne being killed is the person who murdered him. The killer was his father; the person who we all thought was killed, who's murder was one of the primary catalysts to Batman's creation. You can read all about it in the comic Batman R.I.P.

Though Bruce Wayne is dead, Batman will live on. The two leading candidates to take up the mantel of Batman are the original Robin or current Boy Wonder.

"Bruce Wayne – who by night is Batman – gets murdered by a man claiming to be the father he thought was dead.

In a highly controversial new storyline Bruce, who first appeared in 1939, is killed by Simon Hurt – the leader of the shady Black Glove organisation.

Simon claims he is really Dr Thomas Wayne, saying he faked his own passing when Bruce was a child.

The superhero dies when he tries to stop his foe escaping by helicopter in the new comic Batman R.I.P.
