Several DC characters have fought alongside Batman as Robin. Bringing unique strengths to the role, each became independent heroes in their own right.

Everyone knows Robin as the Boy Wonder, Batman's famous sidekick. They may even know Robin was a part of the Teen Titans in between his crime-fighting adventures with the Dark Knight. However, some would be surprised to learn Dick Grayson isn't the only Robin.

There have been five people to take up the Robin mantle in DC Comics' main timeline. Unique in their own way, each has graduated from being a sidekick to becoming one of the most formidable heroes around. While some took on new mantles or helped found new super teams, each Robin has a riveting legacy.

Richard (Dick) Grayson/Nightwing

First Appearance (As Robin): Detective Comics #38 / (As Nightwing): Batman (Vol. 1) #408

Damian Wayne is Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul's biological son. Unaware he had a son, Bruce only learned of Damian's existence later in life, after Talia left the boy with him. Trained by the League of Assassins under his mother and grandfather's watchful eyes, Damian devolved a violent outlook and lacked morality. Bruce Wayne refused to give up on the boy, and in time, Damian became a capable Robin.

First donning the Robin mantle at 10 years old, Damian worked alongside Dick Grayson, who'd become Batman in lieu of Bruce Wayne's "death." He continued to act as Robin when Bruce reclaimed his title. In time, Damian became the Teen Titans' newest Robin and took on some of Batman's greatest enemies. While he still holds the Robin mantle in the current continuity, and alternate timeline depicted in Batman (Vol. 1) #666 (by Grant Morrison, Andy Kubert, Jesse Delperdang, Guy Major, and Jared K. Fletcher) hints that Damian may become Batman down the road.
