And at the center...

...Wayne Tower.

Is that where you work?

- No, l work at the hospital.

l leave the running of our company

to much better men.

- Better?

- Well...

...more interested men.

Can we go?


Okay. Let's go.

- What's wrong, Bruce?

- No, no. lt was me.

l just needed some fresh air.

A little bit of opera goes a long way.

Right, Bruce?

Come on. Let's go.

Wallets, jewelry. Come on, fast.

That's fine.


Take it easy.

Take it easy.

Here you go.

lt's fine. lt's fine.

Now just take it and go.

- l said, jewelry.




lt's okay.

Don't be afraid.

ls this your father's?

lt's okay.

Come here.

There you go.

lt's okay.

lt's okay.



Good news.

We got him, son.

You're in excellent hands.

We'll be watching the empire.

When you grow up,

it'll be waiting for you.

l thought l might prepare a little supper.

- Very well.

- Alfred?

- Yes, Master Bruce?

- lt was my fault, Alfred.

- l made them leave the theater.

- No.

- lf l hadn't gotten scared...

- lt was nothing that you did.

lt was him, and him alone.

Do you understand?

l miss them, Alfred.

l miss them so much.

So do l, Master Bruce.

So do l.

And do you still feel

responsible for your parents' death?

My anger outweighs my guilt.


You have learned to bury

your guilt with anger.

l will teach you to confront it

and to face the truth.

You know how to fight six men.

We can teach you how to engage 600.

You know how to disappear.

We can teach you

to become truly invisible.


The ninja understands that invisibility

is a matter of patience and agility.

Always mind your surroundings.

Ninjitsu employs explosive powders.

- As weapons?

- Or distractions.

Theatricality and deception

are powerful agents.

You must become more than just a man
