[edit] History

Lucious Fox first meets Bruce Wayne in Paris, where the Bruce rescued him from a band of muggers. After forming a strong friendship, the two decided to start a charity together that would become known as Wayne Foundation. Realizing how intelligent and motivated Lucius was, Bruce would hire him on as an employee at Wayne Enterprises. After the company began to fail due to Bruce being pre-occupied with his Batman activities, he decided to hand over leadership decisions to that of Lucius. Eventually becoming the CEO of the company, Lucius used his "midas touch" to turn Wayne Enterprises into a prosperous corporation once again.

During the No Man's Land storyline, Lucius realized that Lex Luthor would try and stake claim to much of Gotham City's property with the city now in ruin following the earthquakes. Using his wealth of knowledge and resources, Lucius was able to stop Luthor before he could go through with his plan. Angered over his interference, Lex sent an assassin to kill Fox. Luckily, Batman was able to save his friend from the assassin's shot before it got to him.
