"Photos can be doctored. They could have put Bruce Wayne's head on that body. Has Bruce Wayne left Gotham to hang out in Star City recently? No."
Oliver Queen[src]

Bruce Wayne is a well-known billionaire from Gotham, as well as the owner of Wayne Enterprises. Bruce is also the cousin of Kate Kane.


Around 2015, Bruce left Gotham City for unknown reasons. Coincidentally, this happened to be around the same time Batman left.[1]

Two years later, Oliver Queen mentioned Bruce at a press conference about Green Arrow's identity, citing that a forger could put anybody's head on Green Arrow's body, even Bruce's. He then jokingly asked whether Bruce left Gotham to hang out in Star City recently, but then said that that hadn't happened.[2]

Wayne's cousin, Kate Kane, was left in charge of Wayne's properties in Gotham.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, Bruce Wayne is a vigilante hero known as Batman, the protector of Gotham City, a man dressed like a bat who fights against evil and strikes terror into the hearts of criminals everywhere. He is also a former mentor to Dick Grayson/Nightwing, who is the protector of Blüdhaven. He is also an occasional ally to Green Arrow, The Flash, and Superman, the latter third of whom is his most frequent ally.
  • It is heavily implied that Bruce is the Batman, similar to his counterpart from Earth-38, though it is unconfirmed. He may also be a counterpart of Bruce from Earth-2.
  • In the original script for "Tribute", it was not Bruce Wayne but some other unrelated person's name on it. Stephen Amell himself suggested Bruce Wayne's name on the script after receiving approval from Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara, Greg Berlanti and DC Entertainment executive Geoff Johns.[3]
