Dr. Thomas "Tom" Wayne (トーマス・“トム”・ウェイン, Tōmasu "Tomu" Wain), is both a fictional character and tetartagonist of the Marvelous DC series created by C. B. Cebulski and Jim Lee. He was a gifted surgeon and heir to the Wayne Family fortune.
He was also a philanthropist; spearheading the board of Wayne Enterprises. Dedicated to philanthropy as much as medicine, he and his wife, Martha Wayne, were well-known and respected in Gotham City; given the dubbed name the "Kennedy's of Gotham".
Their tragic murder at the hands of a desperate burglar, Joe Chill, in Crime Alley, shook Gotham to its core, and led to years of urban blight. Their deaths inspired their son, Bruce Wayne to continue their philanthropy and save Gotham from blight and corruption as Batman.
"We have lived through dark days, and no doubt there are more to come, but it is the good and great men who stand up for Gotham when others turn and run. In death I will love you forever, your father....Thomas."

Notes & Trivia
- Thomas Wayne first appeared in Detective Comics #33 (November 1939).
- The movie that the Waynes went to see has fluctuated between the The Mark of Zorro (1920) starring Douglas Fairbanks and The Mark of Zorro (1940) starring Tyrone Power and Basil Rathbone.
- Thomas Wayne and his wife died June 26th, 1996 at 9:47pm.
- The concept of Bruce visiting the alley where his parents died every year came from Detective Comics #457 (1976).
- When Thomas wore the "Bat-Man" costume, the impressionable Bruce admired his father's outfit and openly asked if one day he might be able to wear such a fearsome costume. Following his father's death, Bruce keeps a replica of the costume his father wore in the Batcave and considers his father the first "Bat-Man".
- Thomas Wayne was a close colleague of Roger Elliot, another influential businessman, who was the father of Thomas Elliot; who would later become the super villain Hush.
- As a child, Thomas was a member of the Green Lantern fan club. As a result Bruce (who occasionally works with his father's hero) keeps an autographed picture of his father as a ten-year-old with the Green Lantern amongst his parents' keepsakes
