Hi. Just preordered my Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson figures. Here's something I always wondered.I was always curious as the natioanlities / ethnicities of Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Are they stated in any comic or reference book? I read somewhere online that Dick was a Romany Gypsy. (I always thought he was white?) and does anyone know Bruce's descent?

Thanks!

If I remember right, English-German decent.

The Waynes are of Scottish descent, at least in the Post-Crisis, Pre-New 52 DCU. There was a prestige one-shot called "Batman: The Scottish Connection" that centered around Bruce's ancestry. I believe it's collected in a recent "Batman International" TPB.

I may have thought about the Batman meet Viking Prince cross-over where the Nordic Viking Prince meet an English Bat-Man.

Grayson's descent was retconned as Romanian, yes.

I was about to say that too. I don't know when it was retconned that he was of Romany descent, but it was most likely after the Crisis on Infinite Earths series.

It was during Devin Graysons' run on Nightwing, which was otherwise absymal. When fan-fic writers run wild...

Thanks. What was Grayson before the retcon? and if he is a romani gypsy now what is he? part Indian or still caucasian?
