Year 7: Event 1 - Dick is fascinated by stoires of The Bat-Man

Long before Dick ever visited Gotham, he was fascinated by stories involving the legendary 'Bat-Man'.



Comment
It is clear in the images that Dick is much older than 7 years, but this is where this event needs to go to fit into our timeline.

Year 7: Event 2 - Dick and his Friends Relaxing

Dick and his friendship circle - Raya, Zane and Raymond - fool around in a cornfield. Pop gives Zane the keys to his truck and the kids take off together to see a movie. Mr Haly comments he always looks out for Dick. This is one of Dick's early memories of life before the tragedy.

Comment
This is a Post-Flashpoint story. It is clear in the story that Dick is older than seven (because in Post Flashpoint Dick must have been about 15 when his parents died) but this is my attempt to amalgamate a Post Flashback story into Dick's fundamental timeline.

Year 7: Event 3 - Dick's final Christmas with his Parents

From the evidence given, Christmas appeared to be special time for the Graysons. The circus must have closed for a week with most of the performers taking this once a year opportunity to visit distant family. The Graysons were no exception. These Christmases are among Dick's treasured memories.

Comment
What I've written above I've made up to explain why Dick is depicted in a house at Christmas rather than in a circus trailer. It has to have been the house of family or why would there by a picture of The Flying Graysons above the fireplace? I can only conclude that whoever this relative was, they died shortly before the tragedy that took Mary and John. Regardless, it is important to note that the Graysons clearly saw Christmas as a special time, taking the time to decorate and to celebrate their love for one another.
