Ever since the release of Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, the Elseworlds line has been a defining piece of DC’s library. But they can’t all be as good as Red Sun or Kingdom Come. Because Elseworlds gives us a chance to visit some… weird worlds. So what ones can you think of. I’ll go first:
Beuce Wayne was the son of billionaire Doctor Thomas Wayne, and socialite Martha Wayne. But after leaving a baseball game, the three were stopped by a simple mugger, and the elder Waynes were shot and killed, leaving Bruce alone with a thirst for vengeance.
Years later, after traveling the world training for his eventual war on crime, Bruce sat in his father’s study, meditating on how to put fear into the hearts of criminals. And then, the window shattered, and through it burst… a ball!. A baseball!
“That’s it, father,” Bruce proclaimed. “I shall be a bat! A baseball bat!”
And so, Batman was born!
