Just click on the picture to get a price on each tee.
The Very Beginning
As a small boy, young Bruce Wayne and his family went to the cinema…..an outing which ended in tragedy and the deaths of Bruce´s parents, killed by a still to this day unidentified mugger. Kneeling by the bodies of Thomas and Martha, Bruce swore to avenge the killings.
Dr. Leslie Thompkins and Alfred Pennyworth arranged so that Bruce would not be taken into care by Gotham´s social services thus beginning Bruce´s dream to become a crusader against crime.
Aged just 14, Bruce set out on his mission, travelling all continents, studying criminology, forensics, and criminal psychology, and mastering every fighting style, picking up the skills he would need to keep his vow.
Upon his return to Gotham, Bruce became a plain clothed vigilante…..his immediate plan was to wander the streets, fighting crime wherever he found it. But things didn´t go well in the beginning and he found himself sat bleeding in his study at Wayne Manor after his first night, perhaps lucky to be alive.
He quickly realised he needed a way to strike fear into the hearts of criminals if he was to succeed…..Just then, a bat crashed through the study window, giving Bruce the inspiration he needed.
Batman Is Born
Bruce became The Dark Knight, Caves beneath Wayne Mansion bacame Batman´s HQ, and Alfred remained his confidant with wise words of advice.
In time, the word spread, the very mention of his name sent shivers down the spines of the criminal element. Batman found a friend in Captain James Gordon who did not like the methods employed by The Caped Crusader, but enjoyed the results.
He fought The Joker, Cat Woman, Two Face and The Penguin. The Villains kept falling in front of him. Batman was a savage and clever crime fighter.
Never short of enemies, the list grew and help arrived in the form of Robin, who was another young boy orphaned by crime.
Together, they fight evil wherever it rises up.
