Mary Wills was a high school classmate to Dick Grayson who had a crush on Robin, and was unaware the two were one and the same.

Mary decided to train and outfit herself as Roberta the Girl Wonder to join him as a Gotham based teen crime fighter in order for the two of them to meet. Despite Dick's initial reservations about "Roberta" after she sneaks into the trunk of the Batmobile and proves helpful, patient and quick witted on the case he was working on by acting as a waitress and patiently looking for an identifying bit of jewelry for several nights he slowly starts to warm up to her. They work together frequently on cases while Batman is out of town with Mary often working undercover in disguise but also fighting alongside Robin. After Robin is able to uncover "Roberta"'s identity as one of his classmates he becomes concerned about how secure his own identity would be if he were to reveal it to her and decides to try and discourage her from continuing to act as a costumed hero. His plan works a little too well as the substance to loosen her mask takes effect while they are on camera. A disappointed embarrassed Mary quickly says goodbye to him knowing her crime fighting career is over and never suspecting Robin was behind the public reveal of her identity.
