Thomas Wayne did die (so Batman's angst is valid), but Martha escaped , moving out to Kansas and marrying Jonathan Kent. Martha doesn't know Batman's identity (as seen in Identity Crisis) and even Superman may not even realize it.

She has Amnesia! It solves so many inconvenient plot problems in comic books.

And I suppose that's Amelia Earhart's body in Martha Wayne's coffin, then?

So Batman is 10+ years older than Superman?

What if she moved away in her teens or whatever, and eventually met and married Thomas Wayne, and then sometime after he was killed, she moved back out there and married Jonathan Kent?

you got me there....

ohhhh wait....she would have had to have changed her identity since Clark was named Clark because of her maiden name and Martha Wayne's maiden name is Kane...it's a stretch but it's all I've got

Amnesia, she remember her as Clark, not Kane.

Except that Bruce saw Martha W. get shot and die.

But besides that massive, glaring plot hole, yeah, your theory is valid.

Still, in Batman Begins we see how thing change from shot to shot in that scene.

Because when you deal with your memory, you change things and this is worst in traumatic memories.

It could be they belive that was Martha Wayne body, it could be Change blindness.

After some time, Martha Kent sneaks away from Smallville and becomes Martha Stewart.

That would explain many things.
