As theBatman's first and most distinguished partner, Dick Grayson channeled his desire for vengeance against the criminal who murdered his circus aerialist parents into a successful crimefighting career. First as Robin, half of Gotham's so-called Dynamic Duo, then later as a Teen Titan, Grayson entered into the fray a punning one-two punch. Much later, Grayson would strike out on his own as Nightwing, retiring Robin's cape and cowl, and proving to his mentor and himself that he was his own man, yet never too far from the needs of the Dark Knight or Gotham.
For a time, Grayson assumed the role of Batman, allowing Bruce Wayne to attend to matters he would not disclose. For Dick, the costume was an easy fit, but the mindset proved to be another matter entirely. Grayson willingly returned the mantle of the Bat to Bruce Wayne upon his return to Gotham. Once again assuming the costume and identity of Nightwing, Grayson journeyed at the behest of Batman to uncover a murder mystery in the neighboring Bludhaven, a city as dark and corrupt as Gotham. There he has remained, confident that he can be everything to Bludhaven that Batman is to Gotham - making a difference in a city that has never known a dark knight avenger...until now.
