Wayne Enterprises is a company owned by the Wayne family and previously run by Bruce Wayne, then by Ryan Wilder. It is one of the main businesses of Gotham City and one of the most powerful multi-billion-dollar corporations on the planet.

The company's main office is located in Wayne Tower. Two of its subsidiaries are Wayne Enterprises Research & Development and Wayne Tech.

Three years after Bruce's departure, his cousin, Kate Kane, started up a real estate development firm subsidiary for the company, Gotham Pride.[1]

Two years later, before leaving Gotham to find Bruce, Kate signed over the CEO title to her successor, Ryan Wilder.[2]

History

In his adulthood, Bruce Wayne became the CEO of Wayne Enterprises.[3] Under Lucius Fox's management, the company's technology became the most advanced, revolutionary and innovative in the world.[4]

By 2015, Bruce left Gotham City and Wayne Enterprises behind.[3]

At some point afterwards, Bruce's cousin, Kate Kane, started Gotham Pride, a real estate development firm subsidiary for Wayne Enterprises. Between 2019 and 2020, Gotham Pride bought the former site of Gotham City Bank and converted it into a gay bar called the Hold Up.[5]

It later bought a property near Bennett Park and, after restructuring it, rented it at lower prices than the rest of the surrounding neighborhood.[4]

Kate was looking after the Enterprises until her disappearance.[6] After Kate was found and decided to leave Gotham, she left the role of new acting CEO to Ryan Wilder, the new Batwoman.[7]

When Jada Jet saw that Ryan was approaching her son Marquis at the Gotham Expo Hotel event, she had Wayne's servers hacked and passed secret data to Vesper Fairchild.

Vesper revealed that the CEO of Wayne Enterprises has been diverting tens of millions of dollars into secret accounts for their own use (which was actually the budget for Batman's and Batwoman's equipment) as a result; Wayne Enterprises lost several shareholders and sponsors.[8]

In exchange for a potential cure to Mary Hamilton's infection from Poison Ivy, Ryan reluctantly signed over her ownership of the company to her maternal half-brother, Marquis Jet.[9]

When Marquis threatened to attack the city with Joker's acid bombs, Jada Jet said the press that Franklin Jet did not die from a fall. These allegations put the leadership of Marquis into question and the Wayne Board has unanimously reappointed Ryan Wilder to the CEO position, calling her previous resignation coerced.[10]
