In most versions of the Batman mythos, Bruce Wayne fights crime to avenge the sudden, senseless murder of his parents. The Dark Knight who stars in Batman: The Telltale Series has a backstory that’s surprisingly twisted.
At the end of episode one of the action/adventure superhero game, players were left with the nagging possibility that Bruce Wayne’s parents had significant ties to Carmine Falcone and the Gotham City underworld. After wrapping up that opening chapter, I figured the tarnish on the Wayne family name was a feint generated by the psychotropic chemicals Batman found during an earlier investigation. But there was no waving-away or misdirection in episode two: Thomas Wayne was a criminal.
