As Sonia Wayne contemplates her place in the world and in the heroic Wayne family, she is visited on Christmas Eve by a strange being: Bat-Mite! And as Sonia soon finds herself in the strangest adventure she’s ever had, forced to defend Santa Claus’ village from a vengeful naughty elf, she can’t help but wonder if she really has what it takes to be a true Wayne!
Quick question: When was the last time Bruce Wayne, the original Batman, wore his cape and cowl before his death in 1979? If you said when his wife Selina (Catwoman) died, you haven’t read this story. This is the story of the Batman’s last Christmas. And this is also the one and only team-up story between the Batman and the Huntress. It’s been ten years since then, and now Helena Wayne (the Huntress) is finally ready to reveal that tale for her adopted daughter Sonia.

How did one man’s love of flying help train the future Batman? How was it made possible for Dick Grayson to become Bruce Wayne’s ward? How was Alfred able to leave wartorn England to become the Wayne family butler? How was Selina Kyle able to complete her prison sentence in time to marry Bruce Wayne? What made Dick Grayson decide to study law? And how did Lucius Fox overcome an accusation of having Communist sympathies by Joe McCarthy to eventually become the CEO of Wayne Industries? One man was instrumental behind the scenes in some of the most important episodes of the Batman Family. How much influence can one man have in his family? That question is answered here in the story of the late Philip Wayne, the uncle of Bruce Wayne who raised the future Batman after the murder of Dr. Thomas and Martha Wayne.
