Bruce Wayne — The Dark Knight

We're gonna take a second look at Nolan's Batman.

Nolan's Dark Knight is a 35 Power Point Street Fighter with Super Karma. After his parents were killed in a shooting as a child, he adhered to his own twisted sense of justice, living among the poor across the world for years. Eventually, the League of Shadows found him, taught him to overcome fear itself (Brave), and trained him as a deadly agent. He turned on them because he refused to execute a man convicted of murder and returned to Gotham, overturning criminals of all kinds.

Batman has trained his mind and body to near-physical perfection, and is a master of many forms of martial arts. Few brave enough to engage him in combat will actually leave with all of their bones unbroken. He also possesses several vehicles and his legendary "Bat Cave," all of which are detailed below.
