"She was wearing it the night that she and my Uncle Thomas were killed, but he always kept it... here."
Kate Kane on Martha Wayne's necklace[src]

Thomas Wayne was a billionaire businessman and philanthropist in Gotham City. He was the husband of the late Martha Wayne, the father of Bruce Wayne, and the paternal uncle by marriage of Kate and Beth Kane.


Early life

Thomas Wayne was born in Gotham City into the esteemed Wayne family.[1] He eventually married Martha Kane and the two had a son, Bruce.[2]


One fateful night, Thomas and Martha were murdered in a mugging, leaving a traumatized Bruce the sole survivor.[2]


Sometime after Thomas and Martha's murders, their son, Bruce Wayne, became the vigilante known as Batman to honor his parents.

Thomas was one of the main catalysts for his brother-in-law, Jacob Kane, to found Crows Security in order to protect and clean up Gotham better than Batman ever could.[2]

A portrait of the Wayne family hangs in Wayne Manor.[3]
