As the youngest member of the acrobatic "FLYING GRAYSON'S " the now orphaned Dick would soon become the legal ward of Bruce Wayne aka The Bat-Man. Bruce Wayne seeing another person like himself, orphaned at a young age, the result of murder, believed that he should step in to help the youngster. However, after Dick discovered Bruce was in fact The BAT-MAN he petitioned his guardian to join him in his fight against Crime in Gotham City. Bruce reluctant to allow his ward to face the same danger as himself felt that the Dick needed some thing to help channel the anger and frustration he had as a result of his parents untimely death into a positive cause.
After a lot of training Dick Grayson became Robin The Boy Wonder...... and along side The BAT-MAN, they became known as the Dynamic Duo.
|A NEW CRIME FIGHTER COMES TO TOWN.|
Robin's original costume was slightly different to the one he would later wear. His Tunic and boots would later be refined. Also The Bat-Man 's look also was now refined to a less scary one. Again this costume would remain more or less the same for many year afterwards.
|THE ORIGINAL COSTUME AND THE LATER CLASSIC LOOK|
However, the costume was soon updated and during the rest of Dick Grayson's time of being Robin, his look and costume remained more or less the same.
Robin Made his Debut in 1940 in Detective Comics #38.
Here is my version of the classic cover.
