- Not a lot of people know what it feels like to be angry, in your bones....You gotta learn to hide the anger, practice smiling in the mirror. It's like putting on a mask.

Born Robin John Blake, he grew up with his father after his mother had died. His father was shot and killed when he was a younger child. Robin used his middle name instead of his legal name as the name he would be introduced in public.
While living in an orphanage he taught himself how to hide the anger and rage he felt towards the loss of his parents. And after Bruce Wayne returned from his seven-year absence after the trial of Joe Chill, he visited John's orphanage with money from Wayne Enterprises.
John grew up to become a police officer in the Gotham City Police Department. Around the time Batman had disappeared for eight years since the death of Harvey Dent, John was still a police officer and had yet to make detective.

- Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt portrays Detective John Blake in The Dark Knight Rises.
- Though an original character with nothing more than the birth name "Robin", Blake displays many similarities with a couple of incarnations of the character Robin, particularly Dick Grayson. Like Grayson, Blake lost his parents as a child, ended up in an orphanage, became a police officer before retiring later to become a vigilante crimefighter, and eventually became an ally of Batman to stop a common enemy. He also has similarities with Tim Drake, as he deduced Batman's secret identity while still a child and has shown considerable faith in Batman's abilities despite his choices and actions. In addition, like Jason Todd, Blake expressed extreme rage over the loss of his parents.
- Blake's middle name is "John", same as Dick Grayson, the first Robin.
