    Damian Wayne
    Damian Wayne

    Born as a test tube baby to Talia al Ghul, Damian was raised to become the heir to the Batman name. He began training at a very early age, being taught by the League of Assassins. At the age of ten, Damian's existence was revealed to Bruce by Talia. Bruce was at first reluctant to take him in because of Damian's arrogant attitude and violent nature. When Bruce "died" during the events of Final Crisis, Dick Grayson took up the mantle of Batman and deemed Damian his Robin so he could keep an eye on him and guide him down the right path, a path of heroism. When Bruce returned, Damian remained as Robin, but there were two Batmen. He and Dick worked alongside each other until Dick later stepped down from the cowl and became Nightwing once again. Damian then fought alongside his father, making them the dynamic duo of Batman and Robin. During the events of Batman, Incorporated, Damian was brutally killed by his adult clone, The Heretic. Damian was later laid to rest by Bruce, Dick, Tim, and Alfred and resurrected via those same individuals.
