It is revealed that Dick Grayson retired from being Nightwing after being severely wounded in a fight with The Joker, he was in a coma for some time and his legs were temporarily paralyzed because of a bullet in his spine. He also lost his right eye and began wearing an eyepatch after the incident with The Joker. After this incident, Bruce and Dick stopped talking to each other and Bruce felt guilty for what happened to Dick.
50 years later, Dick owns an athletics training course. The new Batman, Terry McGinnis, visits Dick Grayson in Blüdhaven and questions him. Dick Grayson, along with Tim Drake, were suspects who were believed to be Hush. A new Hush had appeared in Gotham and it wasn't Tommy Elliot because Elliot was dead, according to Bruce Wayne.
It is revealed that the new Hush is actually a clone of Dick Grayson created by Amanda Waller who planned to have the clone be the new Batman in case anything happened to Bruce Wayne. However, the clone became corrupt and decided to adopt the identity of "Hush" instead. The clone looked exactly like Dick except younger and he wasn't missing his right eye.
