| Batman is the result of Bruce Wayne having his parents shot in a dark alley right in front of him. After being traumatized for life, Bruce set out to fight crime, making sure this never happened to anyone else. For some reason, Bruce concluded that the best way to do this would be to dress up as a giant bat and terrorize random people.
Many people have become Batman besides Bruce, because one guy dressing up as a giant bat just isn't good enough. Most notable is his sidekick Dick Grayson, who became the Batman for a while.
