Leslie Thompkins was a doctor who went to medical school with Thomas Wayne and Matthew Thorne. The three were best friends. She operated a free clinic for the poor called "Thomas Wayne Memorial," in memory of her late friend.

History

Leslie Thompkins was a friend of Alfred Pennyworth and served as Bruce's doctor when Batman got in too deep.

She was never without a word of advice to Bruce, even though she knew he would not listen.

Leslie and Batman

Dr. Thompkins was one of the few people who knew Bruce Wayne's secret identity. Like Alfred Pennyworth she had known Bruce for most of his life. Leslie was not a big fan of Batman, but she realized that Bruce had done a lot of good in Gotham City through Batman.

Background information

Leslie Thompkins was a friend of Thomas Wayne in medical school and tried to be a parental figure to young Bruce after his parents death. Leslie opposed Bruce's actions as a vigilante because she is a pacifist, and often feels that she let him down when he was younger, though Batman often felt guilty over not living up to her expectations.

In the comics, Batman severed all ties with Leslie when it was learned that she denied medical treatment to Stephanie Brown, the Spoiler and girlfriend of Tim Drake, as a warning to Batman of the dangers of using children as partners, and Batman viewed Leslie as little more than a murderer from that point on. However, it was later revealed that Leslie faked Stephanie's death, and Stephanie has become Robin's unofficial partner. It is unknown how Batman currently views Leslie Thompkins.
