Dick Grayson is the first hero to wear the mantle of Robin. He would outgrow this and be inspired by Superman to become the vigilante Nightwing. After taking an unused Iron Man suit, Dick would also be known as Iron Bat.
Richard John "Dick" Grayson was the youngest of The Flying Graysons, a family circus act. One night, on tour to Gotham City, the Haley Circus (where Dick performed) was sabotaged by crime lord "Boss" Tony Zucco, and Dick watched in horror as his parents' high wire snapped, sending them to their deaths.
After this, he was adopted by billionaire Bruce Wayne and soon learned his secret; he had an alter ego as Gotham's vigilante protector Batman. Bruce trained Dick, and he would soon become Robin, Batman's sidekick, or as he preferred, partner.
After years of fighting crime with Batman, Dick outgrew the role, and after an argument with Bruce, approached Superman for guidance. Superman told him of the Kryptonian hero, Nightwing, who in turn was named after a Kryptonian god. Dick was inspired by this, and took the name of Nightwing himself, setting out alone against crime.
He chased Two-Face on the Nightcycle and shot his tire with his gun. After jumping off both the Nightcycle and Two-Face's truck, Nightwing searched the van only to find out that Two-Face had disappeared. Upon returning to the Batcave, Batman instructed him to call Batgirl and put her in charge of keeping Gotham safe while he and Nightwing traveled to New York to investigate sightings of Lex Luthor.
Nightwing joined Batman, and traveled to New York City. There, he met Tony Stark, otherwise known as Iron Man. Stark revealed that he had created a suit of armor for Batman, though he did not want it. This led Nightwing to take the armor, leading to him saving Batman from Deathstroke. To Stark's dismay, Batman allowed Dick to keep the armor for emergencies.
