One of my favorite characters in the Batman universe is Dick Grayson.
Dick Grayson was the youngest member of a circus highwire act known as ‘The Flying Graysons’. When his family was killed right in front of him, it struck Bruce Wayne right where it hurts because it was like watching his own parents die all over again.
The story goes that Sinestro was the greatest Green Lantern of all time; the Guardians on OA held him up as an example for all other Lanterns to follow and emulate. When the very first human from earth joined the corps, the Guardians decided that their greatest Lantern needed to be the one to train him, so they sent Sinestro to find and train Hal Jordan.
Batman is dead; sacrificed for the greater good trying to stop Darkseid in Final Crisis. In the aftermath of his death, Gotham descends into a crime wave. Once before, when Bane broke the Batman, Dick Grayson assumed the mantle of the Bat to bring order back to the city.
