What’s the most important thing about Batman? It’s not the cape, the cave, or the kick-ass ninja skills. No, it’s his major motivation. Young Bruce Wayne is driven to fight crime in all its forms because he lost his parents to a senseless act of petty crime. It’s what drove him to train himself to the height of human perfection, build an arsenal of unique non-lethal weaponry and adopt that ridiculous pack-a-day speaking voice all in the name of putting an end to crime in Gotham City. So naturally, the fanboys over at Nerdist wanted to know what would happen if it turned out Thomas and Martha Wayne weren’t dead afterall, just “out of town.”
So much for Batman…at least we still have Batkid!
