Do not fill this in!===Golden Age (Earth-Two)=== Born in 1928, Richard "Dick" Grayson was the son of Mary and John Grayson, an acrobat act known as the Flying Graysons. When he was old enough, Dick was trained in acrobatics and joined his parents act as a trapeze artist. While in Gotham City, the Circus found itself under pressure from mob boss Tony Zucco to pay protection money. The circus refused to pay and in retaliation had the safety nets and trapeze ropes sabotaged for the Flying Grayson act. Mary and John died, leaving Dick an orphan. Millionaire Bruce Wayne, who was similarly orphaned by criminals and witnessed their deaths, decided to adopt Dick as his ward. Wayne decided to teach his new ward martial arts and fighting both to channel his anger at Zucco (who Dick realized was responsible) and to make sure he could defend himself from him should Zucco come after him.
