History

  Young Richard Grayson was a trained acrobat, touring the country with his family in Haly's Circus until they were murdered in the middle of their act. The stunned young boy was taken in by millionaire Bruce Wayne, who had also lost his parents at a young age, also killed in front of his eyes. He revealed to the boy that he was Batman and trained the youth to fight crime at his side as Robin. Dick grew up to become a lawyer and the ambassador to South Africa, continued to fight crime as Robin, and became a member of the Justice Society of America. Robin was slain in the final battle against the Anti-Monitor.
