Anthony "Tony" Zucco is a gangster responsible for the death of Richard Grayson's parents.
Zucco ran a racket in Gotham City, in which he offered "protection" in exchange for payment. After the owner of Haly's Circus refused to pay the protection money, Zucco sabotaged the trapeze ropes of the circus and as a result John and Mary Grayson fell to their deaths. Their son Richard recognized Zucco but couldn't do anything to stop the tragedy.
Batman goes after Zucco and learns that he is hiding in his uncle Stromwell's place. Zucco left Gotham for nine years and when he finally returned and was captured by Batman and Robin; not knowing that Robin was the Grayson kid he had left orphaned.
