My name is Bruce Wayne;
I watched my world die
When I was a child.
And now I will fulfill my father's dying wish to save my city.
To do so, I must conquer my greatest fears by becoming them.
I must become someone else, I must become something else.
Because what I discovered during my years of training, and finding out who I really am, is that I can be something more.
I am The Dark Knight
