Robin was left on the doorstep of an orphanage not long after his birth and then was raised there. He was given the name Robin on account of the Robin that perched on his cradle when he was a baby. As he grew up everyone else in the orphanage there with him got adopted, while he was just there growing older.He was always different from the other children and always stayed by himself. When he was in his teen years a girl named Beth came to help at the orphanage. He developed a love for her, but could not even gather the nerve to say goodbye to her. Then there was a day when a man from the Church of Eternal Empowerment came to the orphanage giving the children gifts. Robin refused the gift and left the orphanage. The man noticed Robin's difference from the other children and went on to learn more about him and then inform Reverend Darrk what he had learned. After a short-lived job at a martial arts academy, Robin found a notice from Reverend Darrk on a billboard saying "ORPHANS! LET REVEREND DARRK HELP YOU FIND YOUR PARENTS!" Robin went to the church and met Reverend Darkk, who empowered him and controlled his mind so he would not disobey him. After a life of crime, Robin had a fight with Batman who convinced him that Reverend Darrk was just trying to get him to do his dirty work. Robin then ran of into the night not seen again until the coming of Crisis. When Crisis arrived Robin joined the Justice League, but he was secretly still working for Darrk. Robin betrayed the Justice League and dropped the Hawk Rune, becoming Hawk Man and then after a battle was turned into the Atom by Yggdrasil. Atom destroyed Crisis and then joined the Justice League saying that he is power and would have destroyed them if they were rude to him, but because they viewed him as one of them he would go to join the Justice League.
