Batman: The Dark Knight
"A family outing to the cinema ended in tragedy for young Bruce Wayne. Walking homeward, Bruce, his father, Thomas, and mother, Martha, accidentally ventured into Gotham City's notorious "Crime Alley" and were accosted by a mugger. Not content merely to rob the wealthy family, the hoodlum - whose identity was "never determined" - shot Dr. Thomas and Martha Wayne dead before fleeing into the darkness. As he knelt beside his parent's bodies, Bruce swore to avenge them. After the police arrived, Bruce was comforted by Dr. Leslie THompkins. Dr. Thompkins and Alfred Pennyworth helped arrange matters so that Gotham's Social Services would not take Bruce into care. In this way, both Dr. Thompkins and Alfred enabled Bruce to realize his dream of becoming a crusader against crime" (http://www.superherostuff.com/biographies/batman_biography.html)
This libguide is dedicated to the memory of my older brother Niko Allen, who passed earlier this year. To himself and those around he was thought of as today's Batman. Batman is someone who is able to fix any situation with his optimistic energy no matter how bad seems. In this libguide I will discuss the origins of the Dark Knight. This guide will also serve as a foundation for finding out more on everyone's favorite superhero. An ordinary man who was set out to save the world in extraordinary ways, I present to you The Dark Knight.
