The son of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce (Christian Bale) witnesses his parents' murder at the age of 8, and is raised by the family butler, Alfred Pennyworth (Michael Caine). He eventually travels the world, becoming an expert in hand-to-hand combat. At 25, Wayne returns to his hometown of Gotham City not only to control the family business, Wayne Enterprises—which was founded by merchant ancestors of the Wayne family in the 17th century—but also to assume the identity of
Batman to fight crime. As one of the top 10 multinational conglomerates, Wayne Enterprises employs approximately 170,000 people in 170 countries and owns companies in shipping, steel, aerospace, chemicals, technology, biotech, and more. The technology wing of the company fascinates Wayne the most, and he, along with designer Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman), develop a prototype armored car and an armored suit to help Batman rid the city of evil.
