Duke Thomas is a resident of Gotham who took up the mantle of Robin along with many other young residents after Batman disappeared. His past includes a run with The Joker that left his parents missing, later found in a institution, after they were hit by Joker's laughing gas. When the rebirth happened Duke went to Wayne Manor to meet with Bruce Wayne, Bruce took him to the bat cave to show him the idea he had for Duke. Bruce said that Duke was a sidekick, but not a robin Bruce said he was trying something different. Therefore Duke Thomas became the new rookie of the bat family "The Signal".
