<i>Smallville</i> Producers are Robin the Cradle with <i>The Graysons</i>

One of the least egregiously wrong things about 1995's Batman Forever (aside from the inclusion of Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" on the soundtrack) was the fact that they didn't get Robin's origin completely wrong. Dick Grayson and his parents were acrobats in a traveling circus, and the parents were killed by a gangster. Why they were killed and by what gangster doesn't really matter, just that Batman took the orphaned boy in and taught him to fight crime, grooming the man who would one day be his successor... you know, if he doesn't get horribly killed in the line of duty first. Well, the producers of Smallville have decided that if Joel Schumacher himself can't destroy something that isn't broken, then they sure as hell can. The show's creators weren't allowed to do Batman: The Early Years, so now their successors are going to do Robin: The Beginning.

The following clans, on the other hand, make dysfunction seem luxurious -- just imagine what it would be like to call these characters your kin.
