Simon Trent played the fictional television hero known as the Gray Ghost to which Bruce Wayne often watched on television with his father.

Decades later, however, Simon was little more than a washed up, typecast actor. Unable to pay his rent, he slowly sold his Gray Ghost memorabilia to cover the bills. Frustrated with his life, he regretted his decision to ever play his character, destroying the few pieces of the collection he had left. However, fate, chance or perhaps just very careful planning brought Batman into contact with Trent. Though he was investigating a bombing spree similar to one depicted in The Gray Ghost, Batman revealed to Trent the importance and influence the character had on him in his early years. Trent himself, upon seeing the Batman's personal collection of Gray Ghost merchandise, say that playing the Gray Ghost wasn't all for nothing and glad that what he had done had a positive influence. Trent redeemed himself, donning his Gray Ghost persona once more, and aided Batman in unraveling the mystery of the Mad Bomber. The Bomber turned out to be a toy collector who used Trent's memorabilia to re-enact the events in an episode of The Gray Ghost in order to pressure Gotham into giving him millions of dollars, only for the Gray Ghost to sabotage the effort and Batman brought him to justice. Shortly thereafter, a major home video release of the long lost TV series was made from Trent's personal film collection, likely making him a wealthy man. During a public video signing (in costume), Bruce Wayne acquired Trent's autograph and subtly revealed to his hero his own secret identity as Batman, which pleased Trent to no end.
