Exactly one year after Rick Grayson became Nightwing, Batman finds young Jason Todd attempting to take the wheels off of the Bat-Mobile. Batman adopts Jason and he becomes the new Robin. He bonded with both Bruce and Batgirl.


Jason is murdered by the Joker.

One night when Jason was working alone because Bruce was injured, he came across some Joker henchman. He fought them and easily took them out, but he didn't know the Joker himself was present. Joker knocked out Jason and took him hostage. He sent a message to Batman, letting him know he is going to kill Jason. Due to injuries, he was unable to get there in time. Joker beat Jason to the brink of death with a crowbar. He told Jason these exact words

"You think you're Robin? You're just a cheap knock-off of Batman's favorite son. Sleep tight, junior."

He then slammed Jason's head into the ground and left him to die in the explosion. Batman arrived just in time to see the building blow up.

Red Hood[]

Since Batman had saved both Ra's al Ghul and his daughter, Talia, from being murdered Ra's felt he owed Batman a favor. He had Jason's body retrieved and he dumped it in the Lazarus Pit. Jason was brought back, but his psyche was damaged. He killed all of Ra's' henchman and returned to Gotham. He donned the Joker's old persona, the Red Hood. Batman soon deduced that Jason was somehow alive. Since their confrontation, Jason has somewhat reconciled with the Bat-Family.

Alternate Future[]

Jason played a large part in helping to raise Thomas Grayson. After Rick and Barbara were killed, Jason raised him alone. However, Jason soon fell too. Thomas donned his Uncle Jason's persona and became the new Red Hood.
