Synopsis for "Robin's New Secret Identity"
Discouraged because he cannot show off his spectacular athletic talents in his civilian identity, Dick Grayson tries his luck in a third identity, as a redheaded youth named Danny. When he takes a fall in a pickup basketball game and strikes his head, he loses his memory of being Dick Grayson and Robin. Dick wanders the streets aimlessly until he comes across a fire where Batman is saving people and he goes into action instinctively. At first, Batman doesn't recognize the boy, but later on the Batcave, he reflects upon the events and after Alfred informs him that Dick is missing, the Dark Knight goes looking for the boy on the streets. Batman finds Dick walking near a crime scene and he tells Robin to catch the crooks. The Boy Wonder's memories come back and he tackles the criminals before joining Batman once again with his memory restored.
