This Just In: Another MAJOR Development for JASON TODD! [SPOILER]

This is pretty big and changes his history.

Earlier we saw 'Six Developments About Jason Todd from RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #0.' You probably already read them. It turns out there's one more. It's pretty big. I don't know how I missed it. I debated about updating the previous post but this is pretty big and it shouldn't be missed.

Check out the scene where Jason's dad was arrested.

Do you see it. It's RIGHT THERE. Check out Jason's mom.

SHE'S PREGNANT! Jason has a sibling? Where did this come from? Where is the sibling now? There's no way this is a slip. Perhaps this is a tease for something coming up. There was never any mention of Jason having a sibling before. This is a pretty big change.

Any thoughts or theories?

You sure she's not just fat?

Posted by feebadger

I think it's Darkseid. Jason's sister is Darkseid, the transsexual ruler of Apokolips. What do you mean it doesn't make sense!? It's the New 52 goddamit!

Harper. Row.

couldn't be talon he was with dick in the haley circus...hmmm cass or steph maybe!!!!

That was actually the first thing I noticed, I went back and forth looking at all the panels with his mother and tried to find something more. Very subtle!

I agree,plus Scott Synder has stated that he likes Jason Todd and would like to someday write him

This is the first time I noticed someone other then me has caught that.

could be harper how old is he

I noticed it it just seemed like a dumb development. I really hope nothing comes of it.

Didn't DC say they were going to try to keep classic stories in continuity back when the New 52 was announced? It seems like they're trying to do everything to contradict themselves these days.

Posted by Draste

It's hard to take anything in the New 52 seriously with regards to hints and whatnot, I mean... truthfully even they don't seem to keep their story straight on the Bat-continuity.

And here I thought the GL continuity was convoluted.

I don't ever remember Jason having any siblings. That's going to be a curious development. Or maybe she's not pregnant, she might not have lost the baby weight after Jason...? I'm just sayin'....

@Jonny_Anonymous: chances of you being right? 90%

She could be fat, but I doubt it.

Hope its some new character although didnt his mom die? Also isnt that bullock at the arrest scene?

this could get interesting

haha yea!

Posted by feargalr

I spotted that too, but the joker stuff made me forget about!

Posted by The Mighty Monarch

She could have misscarried.

Also, no way is it Harper Row, there's not enough to account for her AND her brother. Just no way.

I don't think it's important, I think it's just a representation of how fucked up she was, smoking while pregnant and shit. She had hit such a low at that point it barely mattered.

Posted by RedHush1

But in the scene where she is believed to be dead she is skinny I believe? So it could just be fat but if he does have a sibling. WIll it change Jason's character for the good or bad?

COOOOL

This is way better than my stupid theory about Harper Row (She's really The Joker wearing a new face and getting close to Batman). I'm almost certain now that you'll be right... Harper and Jason are going to turn out to be siblings.

Posted by Grim

I NOTICED THAT! and then she "Died" and i thought that was that. And then i forgot again when she wasnt dead anymore!

I wanna know whats going on!

Edited by viin

i noticed this too but i kinda hope Jason stays an only child i think it makes his story more independent like in a "on his own" kinda way.

If Harper Row ended up being his sister..even with the 5 year period wouldnt she still only be like 6-10 years old at most?

Posted by Blonde shadow

I'm just going to put this out there and shout it out mind you this is just a thought

STEPHANIE BROWN!!!!!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Wow, how about that! A possible sibling, but that's just it...a POSSIBLE sibling, unless something else comes about it.

Harper Row would only be 5 years old....

Posted by zackattack529

Have any of you even considered that she could have miscarried? i mean this whole issue was supposed to potray how ruthless, trashy, and pathetic Jason's parents were. And when we potray White trahs people the sterotype for women, is a Criminal husband with a woman who is pregnant smoking etc. maybe she miscarried along the way, im sure that the writter would have noted that she was pregnant at the time but never met his sibling.

Also if so, maybe it s NEW character...not Harper row..do you guys remember Harper has a brother? and it was her LITTLE brother..so there is no note that she got pregnant twice.

so no, i doubt it is Harper Row...and haha someone said it was Darkseids daughter?? lmao

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

Interesting... It might be Harper Row or a Talon??? Just like the pople are sayin' in this article.

Posted by IronManager

Jason could be as young as 9 or 10 when his dad gets arrested for the last time, maybe even younger, his sibling could be Damian's age by now.

It's not hard to imagine a drug addict mother leaving the baby at the hospital and saying she miscarried,

By the way, the sibling could be that mysterious ginger stranger at Jason's grave.

When i read it 2hours ago and noticed it wasn't on the developments list I flipped.

wow

@Jonny_Anonymous: Haha!  Good call! That would be an awesome twist 
Edited by YMCMB

Let me guess, it's gonna be Jason's long lost younger sibling who hates Jason for "abandoning" them, even though Jason wasn't even aware of their existence. This long lost sibiling will eventually be revealed in a plot twist to be behind some plan to kill Jason, then they will disappear again and possibly become a recurring villain...

Posted by Samimista

Good eye to whoever noticed this! It'll be interesting seeing how this will play out.~

problem with this is, harper row has a brother also, that's not jason.

Posted by neiliusprime

Doesn't Harper Row have a younger bro?

Posted by thespideyguy

Who was that "Chris" guy in Batman #0????????

Posted by ME24601

@MooseyMcMan: That's honestly what I thought. I don't have very high hopes for Lobdell's writing.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

WOW i never noticed that development in the book. OH THE THEORIES! My brain just blew up.
