Batman is a superhero published by DC Comics. First appearing in Detective Comics #27 (May 1939), he is a vigilante with no superpowers, instead using a variety of techniques to fight crime. A master martial artist and detective, the character also has access to a seemingly limitless fortune, which he uses to acquire various weaponry, gadgets and vehicles to help him in the field. One of the first superheroes available in the Superheroes Unlimited mod, Batman's suit can be accessed via either the Hero-Maker, Suit Assembly Unit or Batcomputer. Wearing it will give the player access to his abilities and allow them to use Bat-Gadgets.
Batman's true identity is Bruce Wayne, a billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and owner of Wayne Enterprises. As a child, he grew up in the care of his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne on the outskirts of the crime infested city of Gotham. This changed when the family was ambushed by a mugger whilst returning home one night. Helpless to intervene, Bruce could only watch as his parents were gunned down in front of him. Traumatized by the event, he decided to get rid of crime in Gotham and fight those who wished harm others, hoping to prevent what had happened to him.
To that end, Bruce spend much of his growing life trying to meld him into a perfect crime fighter and detective. These included studying various martial arts, crime scene investigation techniques, chemistry, mechanics and psychology. To acquire these skills, he would travel the world, living in various places and learning from different mentors. After years of training, Bruce returned to Gotham, only to find living there much worst than before he'd left. After a failed attempt to fight a gang, he decided to use a symbol to strike fear into the hearts of criminals and mask his identity. When a bat flew through his window, he decided to use this as inspiration and became a vigilante called "Batman".
For years, Batman would fight crime in Gotham, including a variety of colorful supervillains, such as the Joker, Catwoman and Two-Face. However, he would often battle these threats with the help of various allies, including his butler Alfred Pennyworth, Police Commissioner James Gordon and Wayne Enterprises employee Lucius Fox. Batman was also responsible for forming the Bat-Family, a group of vigilantes that he would mentor, including various Robins and Batgirls. He is also one of the founding members of the Justice League, a group of superheroes who team up to fight threats too great for one to face alone.
