Dick Grayson is the child of circus performers. He's one of the best and loves nothing more than his life as a performer. He's safe in knowing that his parents always catch him. But when they don't, he saves himself. Everything is alright... Until they're both murdered in front of him, as well as billionaire Bruce Wayne and his date Vicki Vale. The police are established as corrupt and they attempt to steal him away to make him disappear, but she follows in Bruce Wayne's car. The police pull into Galt's Gulch to, presumably, kill Dick Grayson... until Bats rain down on them and the police flee, leaving Batman to make his dramatic enterance. "You've just been drafted."
