Nightwing I’ve now discovered why Dick Grayson’s parents are also heroes.

Nightwing #82, which is now available at DC Comics, includes .

Dick Grayson has remained a true hero throughout his life, posing as Robin, Nightwing, and a variety of other costumed aliases. Dick seems to have been destined to be a hero since he was a boy. In Nightwing #82 by Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo, Rick Leonardi, Neil Edwards, Andy Lanning, Scott Hanna, Adriano Lucas, and Wes Abbott, Dick discovers that his parents are just as heroic as he is.

When Dick speaks to Meili Lin, his newly-discovered half- sister’s, Melindazucco, Dick learns a lot about his parents. Meili describes how she was duped into marrying Tony Zucco, who was abusive and possessive. Only until the couple reached Haly’s Circus did Meili manage to escape Zoucco momentarily. It was John and Mary Grayson who stood up and hid it, and fought against Tony Zucco. The particular sequence of actions in this question is Nightwing, with Dick’s parents struggling in the same way as their son.The way John disarms Zucco, and especially the way Mary rebounds off the trailer and kicks Zukko, exemplifies Dick’s acrobatic ability and battle style.

Furthermore, by protecting Meili, the Graysons show whence Dick got his big heart. Following their victory over Zucco, the Graysons offered Meili a place to stay and befriended her. All of John and Mary’s actions in this flashback explain how Dick grew to be such a kind-hearted, lovely young man. Similarly, Nightwing #78 from 2021, written by Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo, Adriano Lucas, and Wes Abbott, began with a young Dick Grayson saving another child from a horde of bullies. When you look at this incident again, it’s clear that Dick learned to advocate for others from his parents.

Other deeds, such as Dick rescuing a stray puppy, feeding a gathering of homeless people, and protecting a group of youngsters from Boss Maroni, represent Richard and Mary’s principles instilled in their son. True, Batman influenced Dick’s crime-fighting abilities and heroism. But there’s no disputing that Dick’s parents influenced the future Nightwing.

Nightwing #82 shows a portrait of the Graysons, based on their terrible family history revealed during the “New 52.” As revealed in 2011’s Batman #7 by Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, FCO Plascencia, Richard Starkings, Comicraft, and Jimmy Betancourt, Dick Grayson’s great-grandfather, William Cobb, was a Talon for the Court of Owls.

On its own, this added a fresh layer of darkness to the Grayson family. Furthermore, when William Cobb committed his kid to the circus in order for him to become a Talon, his family was merely a part of Haly’s Circus. The Court of Owls made an agreement with Haly’s Circus to choose one of their kids to be a new Talon every decade. Before his parents were murdered and he was adopted by Bruce Wayne, Dick was intended to succeed his great-grandfather.

All of this buried history brought a new level of darkness to the Grayson family that had not previously existed. Dick’s family, on the other hand, appears to be depicted with the same bravery and dignity as Dick himself. These new Flying Graysons flashbacks help to illustrate how Dick grew to be such a good person and all-around hero.
