The World's Finest Presents

Bios - Bruce Wayne

Voiced By: Kevin Conroy
First Appearance: "Rebirth"
Position: Mentor to the Batman of the Future

Official Bio: The years have taken their toll on the former Batman who's now in his seventies. Bruce Wayne may have slowed down, but one can still see the fire behind his eyes, and that he is a man to be reckoned with.

Before meeting Terry McGinnis, Bruce had stopped living life. But Terry's energy and passion for his cause have stirred up emotions in Bruce, enabling him to re-enter the crime-fighting world he had forgotten -- and now, Bruce needs Terry. When Batman is guarding the city, Bruce stays at the Batcomputer and serves as his advisor. He can quickly feed Batman information over the radio link to the new, high-tech Batsuit.

Bruce also knows Gotham City better than anyone, and this information often proves invaluable to Terry. Most importantly, Bruce has faced the dark side of humanity for years, and can guide Terry through many of the mazes he's facing for the first time -- if and when Terry will listen.

Biography (Cartoon Network): Bruce Wayne is a millionaire bachelor and the former head of Wayne Enterprises, now the Wayne-Powers Corporation. Sidelined from the day-to-day goings on of the company, Bruce spends his days at the Wayne mansion, cutting himself off from the real world. For decades, Bruce fought crime on the streets of Gotham City as Batman. Now he has become too weak to carry on like he used to, and as a result has become irritable and depressed. Fortunately, meeting Terry McGinnis sparked a new interest in his old life. No longer able to battle crime in the alleyways and rooftops of Gotham, Bruce is again able to fight evil through his successor. Granting Terry the use of a new prototype Batsuit, Bruce guides him through the paces of becoming the new Batman. While their relationship is volatile at times, Bruce values Terry as the friend and ally who has allowed him to carry on his life's mission.
