Wayne Enterprises' R&D Budget comparisons to rivals

In 1981, CEO Thomas Wayne and his wife Martha, lost their lives in a mugging-gone-wrong. Their only son Bruce, who witnessed the crime, was deemed the sole heir to the Wayne family fortune and inherited the company ten years later.

Wayne Enterprises later became one of the largest Fortune 500 companies in the world as well as America's most charitable company.

The New WorldEdit

When a group of aliens led by the Kryptonian Dru-Zod invaded Earth, the ensuing battle between Zod and the hero known as Superman led to the destruction of a company satellite as well as the destruction of the Wayne Financial Building, the latter of which Bruce witnessed.
