The son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul, Damian Wayne was born to a life of adventure, but he struggles daily against the lesser angels of his nature.
It’s not often that something takes Batman by surprise. But that’s exactly what happened when he learned that he had not only fathered a son with famed assassin Talia al Ghul (the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, one of his longtime adversaries), but she’d been raising the child in secret within the League of Assassins. Kept away from Gotham City and his father until his adolescence, Damian Wayne exploded into the Dark Knight’s world in a flurry of violence, tossing the entire Batman Family into disarray.
Arrogant, cold and undeniably lethal, Damian found the transition from the unforgiving world of the League to Batman’s staunch moral code to be a long and trying process, but a worthwhile one, as Damian ultimately proved himself worthy of becoming Robin at his father’s side.
Though he sometimes struggles with his past and the legacy of his mother and grandfather, Damian now wants nothing more than to be a hero to the people of Gotham, just like his father.
