Solomon Wayne was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the early 19th century. In the years leading up to the American Civil War, Solomon's father Charles Arwin Wayne, brought Solomon and his brother Joshua from Boston to Gotham City where they established the Gotham branch of the Wayne family line. Solomon is a direct ancestor of Bruce Wayne, the caped crime fighter also known as Batman. During the war, both Solomon and Joshua were committed abolitionists who worked with various secret partners in the Underground Railroad. After the war, Solomon used his influence with Senator Nugent Bolle to obtain the post of a federal judge. Wayne maintained a strict conservative ideology towards his practice, and became known as a "Hanging Judge". Solomon also became an architectural patron and worked closely with a colleague named Cyrus Pinkney. Together, they brought the Gothic revival movement to Gotham City forging the city into a towering metropolis of medieval spires, curved pediments, cast-iron tracery and concrete gargoyles decorating the cornices of every skyscraper. In Wayne's own words, he wanted to mold Gotham into "a fortress against Godless Nature". Wayne and Pinkney's contributions were imitated by others whose efforts helped to shape Gotham City into what it is today.
