Robin | Comics

Robin, The Boy Wonder is the teenage superhero sidekick of The Dark Knight of Gotham City, Batman. Since the beginning, five different individuals have played the role over time. The first Robin was Dick Grayson, a young acrobat from Haly's Circus and the youngest son of the Flying Grayson couples, who was adopted by billionaire Bruce Wayne after his parents got murdered by the gangster "Boss" Zucco.

After years of crime fighting career as a sidekick, he retires and became a solo hero with a new name, Nightwing. Jason Todd, then takes his place and became the second Robin. Jason was later brutally tortured and murdered by The Joker (A Death in the Family), which was considered as a great controversial event in the DC Universe.

However, young Tim Drake becomes the third Robin after successfully deducing the secret identity of Batman and Nightwing only with his excellent detective skills and later on his ex-girlfriend and the female crime fighter known as the Spoiler, Stephanie Brown becomes the fourth Robin, who also is the first female to take over the mantle.

But Stephanie got fired soon by Batman after only a few operations because of disobeying orders during patrol and also became the sixth Batgirl when Cassandra Cain left her mantle behind. Bruce Wayne's long unknown biological son Damian Wayne then enters his life donning the shroud as the fifth Boy Wonder, after he saved Tim Drake's life and Tim then becomes the solo hero; Red Robin.
