Philip Wayne was the brother of Dr. Thomas Wayne and the uncle of Bruce Wayne.



After Bruce's parents were murdered, Uncle Philip became his legal guardian.

Unfortunately, Philip was rarely home and often away on business, so he often left Bruce in the care of the caretaker of his Gotham estate. (this caretaker also happened to be the mother of Joe Chill, the man who killed Bruce Wayne's parents)

He also was left under the care of Alfred Pennyworth, who would later become Bruce's butler; on many occasions. He even brought Bruce home from the funeral of his parents.[1]

At some point, Alfred presumably became Bruce's full time guardian. This may have been because Uncle Philip and his caretaker passed away, but this was never actually revealed.[2]
