The Flying Graysons are a family that feature in DC Comics.
Sometime after their death, Dirk Greystone who had joined Haly's Circus had convinced Mr. Haly to allow himself, his wife and his stepdaughter Linda Gray to reuse the name of the Flying Graysons for their acrobatic performance. This was on account that the name would attract people to attend the event with Mr. Haly agreeing to the idea. They set up outside the campus of Hudson University for their one week performance that would have included the act of the new Flying Graysons. In reality, Greystone had intended for his wife and stepdaughter to die in the act in a tragedy similar to the original Flying Graysons. This was so that their deaths would propel him to fame as he grew tired of small scale performances in the circus. The plot was discovered by Robin who helped apprehend Dirk Greystone leading to his arrest. (Detective Comics v1 #484)
Following the Flashpoint, a new version of reality was created with a different history of events.
It was noted that they had a unique Grayson Style to their acrobatic performance. (Detective Comics v1 #484)
