Dick Grayson, alias Robin, is a DC Comics Super Heroes minifigure released in 2014. Dick had previously been released in his Nightwing identity in 2006. Dick Grayson is the original upholder of the Robin identity, a staple part of the Batman mythos.

Description[edit]

1966 TV series (Juniors)[edit]

Robin's head has a large angular green mask and a large tilted grin, as well as a second face with the green mask and a scared expression. Robin's torso is red, with red arms and black hands and features muscular lines, and three yellow rectangular buttons in a row starting just below his neck until they end just above the buckle on his utility belt. On the top lefthand corner of his torso, there is a black circle behind the R insignia. The torso also depicts and a utility belt with four square packets. He has back printing featuring the back of his belt and the suit's cut on his back. He has a short yellow cape, green legs, and red hips.

Background[edit]

The son of acclaimed acrobats John and Mary Grayson, Dick is set to follow in their footsteps until his parents are killed by a gang attempting to take over their circus. Dick is taken in as Bruce Wayne's ward when none of his other family steps up to adopt him, and discovers that his guardian is the Batman. Hoping to prevent Dick from becoming as broken and vengeance-seeking as he has, Batman agrees to train him to become a crime fighter, eventually having Dick join him as his protege Robin, the first of several teenage sidekicks.

Robin is a founding member of the Teen Titans, teaming up with Kid Flash and Aqualad in battle to defeat a supervillain known as Mister Twister. Shortly thereafter, they are joined by Wonder Girl and Speedy when the Justice League's sidekicks are the only ones who can rescue them, officially establishing the Teen Titans with Robin as their leader. However, as Robin and the others grow up, the team does not remain a permanent part of their lives and is disbanded. Aside from the other members of the Titans, Robin becomes close friends with Batgirl and though they do not explore a relationship, they have a mutual crush.

After years of serving as one of Batman's most trusted partners, Robin's relationship with Batman begins to deteriorate after Dick fails to follow his mentor's orders to leave Batman behind when he is captured by Two-Face. Robin himself is caught and tortured by the villain. Though Dick recuperates ready to return to the mantle, Bruce has difficulty in allowing him to. This leads Robin, alongside Kid Flash and Wonder Girl, to return to a new incarnation of the Teen Titans formed through the manipulations of a half-demon girl called Raven whom has been denied help in fending off her father by the Justice League. These heroes are also joined by former Doom Patrol member Beast Boy, whom was denied membership into the previous incarnation of Titans for being too young, plus the newer heroes Cyborg and Starfire. The refugee alien princess Starfire catches Robin's eye and they become a couple.

Through a series of events, Starfire's arrival on Earth would lead to a vendetta held against the Titans by the young assassin Ravager and, shortly thereafter, his death. This would incur the rage of Ravager's father, Deathstroke the Terminator, who recruited Terra to infiltrate the Titans and steal their secrets. Hunting the Titans one-by-one, only Robin, who has given up crimefighting to resolve his issues with Batman, is able to escape. Going to Superman for guidance, he tells Dick the story of a Kryptonian vigilante named Nightwing whom was abandoned by his family and struck out on his own as a hero. Taking the Nightwing mantle as his own, Dick teams up with Deathstroke's son Joe to rescue his friends and lead the Titans through a new era as he removes himself from Batman's shadow. The Robin identity, meanwhile, becomes a legacy mantle to be picked up by Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Damian Wayne.

Notes[edit]

  • In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Robin's alter ego is called "Dick Grayson"; however he is actually Tim Drake. In the game, Robin looks identical to Tim Drake as Robin's minifigure from the sets. However, the game, the game's Prime game guide, LEGO.com, and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham all incorrectly establish that in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Dick Grayson is Robin.
    • Portable versions of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes identify Robin as Tim Drake.
    • When the promotional page for LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was initially posted, the Robin in the game was said to be Tim Drake. However, when the game's release date was approaching, the page was updated, stating that Dick Grayson was the Robin in the game.
      • To add to the confusion, in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Tim Drake's appearance from LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was reused for Dick Grayson's 1966 variant.
  • The Dick Grayson version of Robin is a playable character in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham based on his appearance in the 1966 live-action Batman TV series. Dick is also playable as Nightwing and in the secret agent garb he currently wears in The New 52.
