Bio:
As a boy, Bruce Wayne witnessed his parents' gruesome murder by an unknown gunman and vowed revenge against all who broke the law. Bruce Wayne was the son of Thomas and Martha Wayne. His father was a well respected Gotham doctor, and his mother a homemaker. Thomas and Martha Wayne were very influential in Bruce's early life, instilling thoughts of truth and honesty. When his parents were murdered, Bruce was devastated. As a young adult, he worked to fulfill this vow by traveling the world to learn from masters of various defense disciplines. Eventually he became an exceptional escape artist, master of martial arts, acrobatics, science, technology, boxing, disguises, criminology and detective skills. Having perfected his skills, Bruce Wayne is prepared to embark on his mission. But one thing eludes him -- the ability to strike fear in the hearts of the criminals he will confront while protecting his true identity.

One night, in his father's study, Bruce Wayne relives the horror of his parents' death. Suddenly, in a terrifying flash of blackness, the window is shattered by the striking image of a black bat. In that moment, Bruce Wayne's destiny is determined. He would become the night... he would become the Batman. Bound by his personal code of justice, Batman resolves to never kill an enemy. Instead, he relies on his physical prowess and mental superiority to bring his enemies to justice.

During the day, Bruce Wayne is CEO of Wayne Enterprises and maintains the public image of a millionaire playboy. In fact, Bruce goes to great lengths convincing others that the self-centered socialite is his true self. Bruce Wayne is the disguise, Batman is the true personality.

The Animated Series finds Gotham City in urban chaos, dark and gloomy as the criminals who inhabit it. The city cries out for justice -- not the kind that comes from the police, but from a man who wears a mask. Batman is Gotham City's "Dark Knight" and will stop at nothing to restore order to the city and protect it's citizens.

Bio (Cartoon Network): Prowling the streets of Gotham city by night, Batman arms himself with nothing more than technology, toughness and wits- combined with the virtually unlimited wealth of Wayne Industries. The only people that share his secret are Alfred the butler, Batman's sidekick Robin ,and Batgirl.

Although he has no super-powers, Batman's powers of deduction combined with his obsessive determination combine to make him one of the most feared crimefighters in the world.
[Bio. taken from World's Finest Online]

Notes:
The most popular representation of Batman in any media would be the DCAU Batman from 1992-2006. Thanks to the team lead by character designer & producer Bruce W. Timm, this proved to be a touchdown in Batman's history. With tales filled with excitement & humor starting from his [Batman's] first appearance in the Batman: The Animated Series Episode #01 "On Leather Wings" this is one character you can go on watching over & over. I'd like to thank the DCAU [DC Comics Animated Universe] team namely Bruce Timm, Paul DIni, Alan Burnett among others & I'd like to specifically thank Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman who gave us 14 years of his hard work to make this Batman the greatest detective in this multiverse.
