Joe Chill was the gunman responsible for the murder of Bruce Wayne's mother and father.


One fateful night, Joe Chill had just so happened to come across the wealthy Wayne family, after they had just seen The Mark of Zorro. Chill cornered them in an alley, threatening them at gunpoint and demanded that they hand their valuables over. A scuffle ensued and culminated with Chill shooting and killing the boy’s parents. Witnessing the whole ordeal, the 8-year old Bruce took it upon himself to wage personal war on crime as the masked vigilante Batman.

Many years later, Chill appeared in during Batman's Black Mercy-induced dream. Bruce and his mother witnessed his father fighting back against Chill. When Wonder Woman managed to call out to Batman to remove the Black Mercy, the situation in his dream sequence changed for the worse to Bruce's horror. In the last moments of the fantasy, Chill finally managed to overpower Bruce's father and kill him.
