Martha Wayne (1946 - 1981) was a respected philanthropist and the wife of former Wayne Enterprises chairman Thomas Wayne, whose death left their only son Bruce the sole heir to the Wayne Family fortune.
Martha was born into one of Gotham City's wealthiest families. After coming of age and inheriting the family fortune, she met and married Thomas Wayne. Sometime later, she gave birth to a son, whom she named Bruce.
Thomas and Martha were later buried in the family mausoleum. Their butler Alfred dismissed the rest of the staff and became Bruce's legal guardian.
Having witnessed his parents' murder, Bruce was traumatized by the event and vowed to battle the criminal element that took their lives as "The Batman."
