Dragon Ball Z has many examples of this: Freeza himself even lampshades the fact that he should probably just take Goku out right now after the 20x Kaioken, but he still keeps screwing around anyway. He lampshades it again after Goku transforms, kicking himself for not just killing Goku when he had the chance; by the time he realizes this, however, he has no hope of victory. Rather than finish him here, Vegeta lets Cell absorb Android 18 and upgrade to his Perfect form, lusting for a greater fight.
Eventually, he outgrew this position and was inspired by Superman to become Nightwingwhile Jason Todd and Tim Drake succeeded him as Robin.
Bruce's return allowed them to both wear the mantle as part of Batman Incorporatedalthough Grayson has since then returned to his Nightwing costume in Traps and Trapezes. Dick joined the act at a very young age, having been trained in acrobatics from birth. While on tour in Gotham City, he overheard "Boss" Tony Zuccoa well-known and feared crime-lord, threaten the performers unless the circus's owner paid extortion money.
The owner refused, and that night Dick watched in horror as his parents' high wire snapped, sending his parents hurtling to their deaths, all while many of Gotham's elite watched on. Young Dick felt responsible, because he didn't warn his parents in time.
Origins Shortly after the tragedy, Dick was placed in an uncaring juvenile services system, on the grounds that social services were full.
He got beaten up by a number of the inmates, and he was later sent to a Catholic orphanage. Bruce Wayne rescued Dick by adopting him as his ward, because the boy did not want to replace his deceased father with the billionaire.
Frustrated by the lack of attention from his new guardian and the mystery still surrounding his parents' death, Dick sneaked out of Wayne Manor one evening to solve the crime on his own - only to stumble into Batman, who was also investigating the murder.
When Dick returned to the circus, he was confronted by Zucco's business associate, Eddie Skeevers who nearly killed Grayson, but Dick was saved thanks to Batman's intervention. After waking up in the Batcave, he is shocked to learn that Bruce is really the Batman.
They succeed in revealing Zucco's complicity, but he supposedly dies of a heart attack before his arrest. Seeing a reflection of himself in Dick; that he could temper compassion with a thirst for justice, Batman made the young orphan the offer of a lifetime; the chance to become his crime-fighting partner.
Dick chose the name Robin, and his training began. The Oath They swore an oath late that night that they would fight together against crime and corruption, never swerving from the path of righteousness.
Batman had realized for the first time that he did not have to be alone in his crusade. Robin's origin had a typological connection to Batman's in that both witnessed the crime-related deaths of their parents, creating an urge to battle the criminal underworld. This provided a bond and understanding between the two.
Bruce taught Dick fighting techniques and detective skills for a grueling 6 months. Finally, Dick had to pass a final test - "the Gauntlet".
Dick had to elude the Dark Knight on the streets of Gotham for one night - from sunset to sunrise - without any outside help.
Dick succeeded, simultaneously bringing Gotham gangster Joe Minette to justice.
Dick took to the streets as Batman's full-fledged partner in crime-fighting: Robin, the Boy Wonder. Robin Grayson as Robin Dick enjoyed his first year as Robin, regarding the job as an adventure until a confrontation with Two-Face served as a rude awakening for the young hero. Two-Face had captured the new District Attorney and Batman, and had each suspended from a hangman's noose in a 'double gallows death-trap'.
