He’s lost his family in a way that perfectly echoes the tragedy that drives Batman, but with one crucial difference: When Bruce Wayne’s parents died, there was no Batman to help him. When Dick Grayson’s parents die, there is.
Batman doesn’t just help Dick track down the guy who killed his parents, he adopts him. He takes him in.
