Normal Archivist of The Dark Knight
historyofthebatman We conclude the DC Comics publication Batman (Vol 1) with its final issue, #713 from August of 2011 (October 2011 cover date), written by Fabian Nicieza with art by Steve Scott, Daniel Sampere, Andrei Bressan, (pencils), Walden Wong, Rich Perrotta, Andrei Bressan, Rodney Ramos (inkers), Ian Hannin (colors) and Jared K. Fletcher (letters). In Storybook Endings", Damian Wayne writes the story of the Batman Family. He begins with Bruce Wayne, his origin of his parents being murdered and his promise to fight crime in Gotham City in the guise of a bat to avenge their death, becoming the Bat-Man. The story continues with Batman meeting a young circus performer who suffers the loss of his parents. Batman trains him to become his protégé Robin, The Boy Wonder. Damian sees Robin as the balance of light to the dark side within the Caped Crusader. Although they became friends with a father/son disposition, Robin, Dick Grayson, eventually grew up and realized he must leave Batman's side and venture out on his own to find himself. When he does, he takes up the persona as Nightwing and develops a unique style of fighting with influence from his mentor. The issue continues with Batman finding another lost youth (Jason Todd) and trains him to be the second Robin, but his mantle ends tragically and Batman finds himself in the dark and distant once again. The emergence of a third Robin comes when a young man (Tim Drake) discovers the secret identity of both Batman and Nightwing. He eased the guilt Batman felt over the failure of his previous partner. Soon the Dark Knight realizes that together with his protégés and a son he never knew (Damian Wayne), he had an extended family with each desiring guidance and acceptance from him. Then Batman is taken away from his family and in his honor they carry on his legacy, with Nightwing taking up the mantle as Batman. Although his son, the new Robin, resents Grayson by thinking he could ever replace his father, this new new dynamic duo grow to trust and respect one another. When the original Batman returns, he approves of their union and they continue on as Batman and Robin, and all together as a family. 2min
