When young Bruce was killed along with his mother by a police officer, Thomas Wayne Sr. refused to accompany them for questioning. Thomas Jr. escaped the crime scene with a thug named Joe Chill whom he considered to be his hero and grew up to become a vigilante known as Owl Man while his father became a police commissioner.

Owl Man became a partner to Boss James Gordon who controlled Gotham City and remained untouchable by the law until the Justice League arrived and overthrew Owl Man and the Crime Syndicate of America. Batman and Commissioner Wayne were able to overthrow Gordon's criminal empire.
