Damian Wayne joined the canon of the DC Universe in 2006, introduced as the "Son of the Bat" by writer Grant Morrison. He is the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul -- expanding on a concept first introduced by Mike Barr in 1987 one-shot Batman: Son of the Demon.

Damian was raised by his mother and The League of Assassins who trained him in their deadly fighting arts. The arrogant young fighter favours violence and brutality, but fights of his own freewill for justice. His desire to take his place by his father's side led to tensions with the other sidekicks in the Batcave, but he has never the less been Robin for ten years.

In the world of Injustice; Damian chose to fight alongside The Regime, and accidentally contributed to the death of Dick Grayson during a siege on Arkham Asylum. This is the death Batman cannot forgive in the Injustice 2 trailer.
