Richard "Dick" Grayson was an acrobat in Haly's Circus with his parents. One day, a gangster named Tony Zucco and his brothers threatened the circus and its performers. When the Grayson resisted them, Zucco promised revenge and Batman arrived.

The following day, on the night of their performance, Tony Zucco came before the show and removed two vital lugnuts for the trapeze. When Grayson's parents were doing their stunt, the trapeze gave out and they fell to their deaths.

Dick Grayson was taken in by Bruce Wayne who wanted to make a difference in Grayson's life.

Grayson soon found out Wayne's secret of being Batman so Grayson wanted to work as a superhero as well. He wore an altered version of his original acrobat costume, going under the alias as "Robin".
