On June 26th, the exact same night Bruce Wayne became an orphan, another young boy watched his parents gunned down. When a rookie cop, James Gordon, shot and killed two would-be burglars as they attempted to rob a warehouse full of stereo equipment a series of events began that would create a dark, mirror-image of Batman. While Wayne would study and train to become crime's greatest enemy, this boy would be bounced around the foster care system and embrace the darkness the Batman would oppose.
He chose to style his costume after the Batman to get under the skin of the man he blamed for the death of his parents. He saw Gordon as a cold-blooded killer even though he had only shot in self-defence after first being shot. Taking the name of Wrath he made a name for himself by killing cops for hire.
