-- Lady Shiva src

Sandra Wu-San, better known as the master assassin Lady Shiva, was already one of the most dangerous killers in the world before she was an adult.

Lady Shiva came to Gotham City one night and ambushed Batman. After she had poisoned the Bat with special shurikens, Dick Grayson, who was acting as Batman's computer operator in the Batcave at the time, donned his own red and green costume that he pieced together himself and went to help Batman in his fight against Shiva.

Calling himself "Robin", Grayson was able to fend off Shiva long enough for Batman to regain his strength. Ultimately, though, Shiva escaped into the night, proving too much for Robin to capture.[1]
