When Jack Haly, head of the Haly Circus, refused to pay extortion money to Gotham crime lord Boss Zucco, Haly's number one act -- The Flying Graysons -- became targets for the underworld. Young Dick Grayson watched in horror as his parents' high wire snapped and they hurtled to their death.
The Batman, investigating the death of the Flying Graysons, decided to adopt the young acrobat and make him his partner-in-peril. A natural and professional acrobat, Dick took quickly to the extensive training and soon debuted as Robin, the Boy Wonder.
Over the years Robin met several other young adventurers and together they formed the first version of the Teen Titans. This early group achieved great success, but eventually dissolved as the teens grew older and found their time limited due to schooling and solo adventures.
A second group of Titans was formed a year after the first group ended, and even more young adventurers joined. However, this group, too, quickly disbanded.
As Dick turned 19 years old, a third group of Titans was created, and Dick quickly became its leader.
