Just like in the original Flashpoint universe, Thomas Wayne turns into a crime-fighting vigilante after his son's death while Martha Wayne goes insane as the Joker. Batman doesn't care about crime outside Gotham City and has his successful casinos fund his seemingly fruitless fight on crime. Despite his cynical outlook, Batman reluctantly assist Barry Allen with a device to recreate the accident behind Barry's powers as the Flash. After the first attempt fails and the second attempt restores Barry's powers, Batman and Flash contact Cyborg for help in tracking down the government branch that hid the frail Kal-El. When Kal-El's freedom failed along with Flash's painful altered memories, the alternate Dark Knight tries to prevent the speedster's mental deterioration with his son's memory. As the World War between Aquaman and Wonder Woman reaches its breaking point, Cyborg's crude team heads to the final battle in Batman's plane. During the chaos, Batman and Grifter kill off Black Manta to which Batman dryly refers to Grifter as the "boy idiot" before the alternate Dark Knight gets injured by the Ocean Master. In the middle of Professor Zoom's monologue to Flash, Batman shoots the evil speedster in the head. Before Flash leaves to escape the alternate world, Thomas gives Flash a letter for his son. In the New 52 universe, Flash gives Thomas's letter to Batman (Bruce Wayne).
When his son Bruce was ten, Thomas and his wife Martha were murdered in front of him.
Son of BatmanEdit
It is revealed by Batman that his dad Thomas used to take his son to ball games at the Gotham Coliseum. Sometimes, after the game, they would go to the amusement park on the grounds.
Batman vs. RobinEdit
Bruce remembers one night, while being tucked into bed, Thomas recited the Court of Owls nursery rhyme. Bruce became afraid and asked if they were real. Thomas chuckled and reassured him a secret society of rich and powerful men who ruled the city from the shadows was just a story. Thomas declared even if they were real, he and Martha would always be there to protect him. Thomas and Martha were soon gunned down in front of their son by a petty criminal named Joe Chill in Crime Alley, putting Bruce on the path to becoming Batman.
