In the recent Batman & Robin Eternal, the Bat-Family found out about a sadistic puppeteer of people known as Mother. She would take children from the homes, murdering their parents in front of them, and then begin sculpting them for people to fill specific purposes. To be children, husbands, wives, to fill a job perfect for others, nothing was out of Mother's reach.
So much so was her "gift" that even Batman took her up on an offer to make a "perfect" Robin for him. With Batman "dead", it's up to Dick Grayson and the rest of the Bat-Family to finish this fight.
