HistoryEdit

Richard Grayson of Earth-One has a tragic past that mirrors that of his Earth-Two and New Earth counterparts, in that the death of his parents would lead to the association with his realities Batman to become Robin the Boy Wonder, and eventually the grown up hero Nightwing, leader of the Teen Titans

Origins

Young Dick Grayson and his parents John and Mary were trapeze artists that worked for the Haly Circus. Like many establishments in the area, the Circus was threatened by protection racketeer Boss Zucco who has threatened the owner to join up for "protection" to avoid accidents from happening at the circus. When the owner would refuse, Zucco would arrange for an "accident" to happen, which would cause Dick's parents to fall to their deaths. Witnessing this tragedy in the audience is Bruce Wayne who's own parents were killed by criminals. Confronting Dick in his identity of the Batman, Bruce would offer the boy the chance to personally avenge his parents death.

Adopting young Dick as his ward, Bruce would train the boy physically and mentally to be a crack crime fighter much like the Caped Crusader. Once fully trained, Batman would present Dick with a costume that Bruce had worn previously as a young man. Taking on Bruce's previous mantle of Robin, the new boy wonder would help Batman prevent Boss Zucco from destroying the Canin building. During the battle, Zucco would be photographed by Robin pushing one of his own men off the partially constructed building, insuring that he would go to jail for murder, thus avenging his parents.[1].

Early Adventures

Robin would have many adventures with Batman, establishing themselves as the "Dynamic Duo" and the "Caped Crusaders" of Gotham City. A number of their past adventures are mirrored events from the exploits of Batman and Robin of Earth-Two, originally acting out of the law and facing many of Batman's famous rogues. The number of tales that mirror events on Earth-Two have yet to be completely defined, however it is presumable that Robin's first encounters with the Joker[2], Catwoman[3], Riddler[4], among others mirror that of his Earth-Two counterpart.

however his earliest recorded adventure would be one wherein Bruce's butler Alfred Pennyworth accidentally revealed the Dynamic Duo's secret identities[5]. Early on in his career, Robin would also meet Batman's frequent ally Superman during a case when Superman would attempt to protect Batman from the danger posed by a gang of Kryptonite smugglers. This would end with the Dynamic Duo and Superman working together for the first time to stop the gang, the first of many team-ups between Batman, Robin and Superman[6]. The level of trust between the Dynamic Duo and Superman would lead to the trio revealing their secret identities to each other[7].

Imaginary Tales

There are a number of imaginary tales that have been told about the Earth-One Robin. These stories are not part of Earth-One cannon. The following is a complete list of the imaginary tales:

The first imaginary tale about the Earth-One Robin was told written by Batman's butler Alfred Pennyworth. In this imaginary story Alfred tells a tale about Batman and Batwoman getting married and retiring together, leaving Dick Grayson to take up the mantle of Batman II while the role of Robin II is taken up by Bruce Wayne Jr.[386]. Alfred revisits this idea in another imaginary story about Batman II and Robin II wherein they stop criminal John Crandall[387]. This starts a regular trend of imaginary tales about Robin's future life after Batman has been married. In another imaginary tale written by Alfred about Batman II and Robin II, the new Dynamic Duo battle the Joker and his son[388]. Alfred would revisit this imaginary world one more time to tell how Bruce Wayne Jr. would aid Dick Grayson against the Green Owl Gang[389]. Robin also makes an appearance in an imaginary tale wherein Batman marries Batwoman and Superman marries Lois Lane and the two couples produce offspring Kal-El Jr. and Bruce Wayne Jr.[390]. This imaginary world is revisited once again, telling a tale about the Junior Superman and Batman tackling Bat-Mite and Mr. Mxyzptlk[391]. In an unrelated imaginary story about Superman marrying Lois Lane and having a boy (this one named Clark Kent Jr.), Robin is depicted as a member of the Justice League of America[392]. In yet another imaginary tale about the future of Batman and Robin, Bruce Wayne marries Lois Lane and the two have a child named Bruce Wayne Jr. Bruce and Dick train the young boy to be a replacement Batman[393].

Another common theme of imaginary tales involving Robin usually have to do with changes in the life of long time Batman associate Superman. In the first of these Robin appears in an imaginary tale about Lex Luthor supposedly going straight and aiding Superman in his crime fighting endeavors. This however is all a plot by Luthor to kill Superman, a plot which Superman's greatest foe succeeds at. Robin is seen attending the funeral of Superman with the Man of Steels many friends and associates[394]. Another imaginary tale involves Lex Luthor manipulating Batman into thinking that Superboy was responsible for his fathers death. Carrying this vendetta against the Man of Steel, Batman and Robin would clash with Superman in a battle that would lead to Batman's accidental death[395]. In yet another imaginary tale involving Superman losing his powers and taking up a new costumed identity of Nova to fight crime like other non-powered heroes leads to Superman having to be rescued by Batman, Robin and Green Arrow[396][397]. Another imaginary tale regarding the wedding anniversary of Superman and Lois Lane depicts Robin being present at the anniversary[398].

Other imaginary tales involve Robin continuing on after the death of Batman. The first involve Robin avenging Batman's death at the hands of the Automator[399]. Another tale visits an alternate outcome of Batman's battle with the Bouncer where Batman is killed by the criminal, Robin is then joined by the Batman of Earth-Two who has come to help Robin's crusade against crime[400].
