Dick Grayson, a fictional superhero otherwise known as Robin from the DC Comics comic book series, Batman. He was Batman's sidekick and adopted son. The youngest in a family of acrobats known as the "Flying Graysons", Robin's character first appeared in Detective Comics #38 in April 1940. After Robin saw his parents die at the hands of a mafia boss who sought to extort money from the circus, Batman takes Robin under his wing as a legal ward and the two become inseparable. When Grayson grows older and spends more time with the Teen Titans, he retires as Robin and becomes Nightwing. Others fill in for Grayson's role as Robin upon his departure.
