Batman's (Bruce Wayne) Connection to Red Hood (Jason Todd)?

#1 Posted by DarkKnight1939 (148 posts) - - Show Bio

I have read Under the Red Hood and have some questions to ask. I have not read any Batman comics related to this period in his history.

- How did Jason survive the explosion?

- How did Nightwing survive the explosion at Bluudhaven?

- What happened to Bluudhaven after this?

- What did Jason do after this event?

- What did Batman do after this event?

- As Jason has carried on being the Red Hood, why has Batman stopped trying to bring him in?

- I think Jason is no longer part of the "Bat-Family" so what is his current relations to each member?

I would be thankful for any answers.

? Are you talking about the DCOAU movie, or the story arc?

How did Nightwing survive the explosion at Bluudhaven?

- What happened to Bluudhaven after this?

? Do you mean from Infinite Crisis?

Pre-New 52, he had become a full-fledged villian of Dick and Damian (ignoring the breif teamup to save Scarlett). Currently, things are much smoother between the family. Read Red Hood & the Outlaws and Batman Inc 5 for interactions and feelings

You mean the one at the end? He just escaped like many other comic characters

- How did Nightwing survive the explosion at Bluudhaven?

Nightwing wasnt in bludhaven when it was destroyed if you want more details you should read infinite crisis

- What happened to Bluudhaven after this?

It was destroyed forever

- What did Jason do after this event?

He attacked tim drake in teen titans, tried to take over dicks nightwing identity, tried to be batman when bruce died, became red hood again and fought dick as batman, and now hes in red hood and the outlaws

- What did Batman do after this event?

He got involved with the omac project stuff and thewn infinite crisis, he renounced to the batman identity and traveled through the world for a year, then came back and... continuedf to to batman stuff until he died, came back and founded batman inc

- As Jason has carried on being the Red Hood, why has Batman stopped trying to bring him in?

I guess theyre in better terms now

- How did Jason survive the explosion?

By being BA.

It was never shown, but human heroes are shown as surviving those sorts of things all the time. It's a bit stupid, but what can you do? Presumably, he just got out of the blast radius in time. It was handled better in the movie.

- How did Nightwing survive the explosion at Bluudhaven?

He was out of town. I believe that he was in Gotham at the time, but he had to ignore Bludhaven and deal with a problem stemming from Infinite Crisis

- What happened to Bluudhaven after this?

I do not know, but they made a series called Battle for Bludhaven. I suspect that has many of the answers. I think Superman cleared the radiation, so it was still theoretically habitable, but everything was all blown up, so...

- What did Jason do after this event?

Good question. I do not know what he did in the lost year, but he started being a dick to Grayson in NYC after the Bat Family returned.

- What did Batman do after this event?

Immediately after, Dick Grayson was almost killed during Infinite Crisis by...Lex Luthor I think? In fury, Batman picked up a gun and tried to shoot Lex, but the gun was empty. After that, he decided he needed a vacation, so Batman, Dick, and NIghtwing went on a year vacation/rejuvenation thing.

- As Jason has carried on being the Red Hood, why has Batman stopped trying to bring him in?

Nobody knows.

- I think Jason is no longer part of the "Bat-Family" so what is his current relations to each member?

That is not clear. Tim seems cool with him now. He seems to think that Jason's previous aggression was just a side affect of the Lazarus pit, and he does not seem to be overly concerned about the whole killing people stuff. Damian seems to see Jason as an enemy of his fathers and a disowned son. There have been no other post-Flashpoint interactions that make his role clear to the rest of the family.

I would be thankful for any answers.

Nope, it was Alexander Luthor, not Lex. And the gun wasn't empty, what happened is that Wonder Woman convinced Batman not to shoot Alex.

@KnightRise:You mean Batman Inc. #4? That was the one with Wingman and Redbird. #5 isn't out yet and will focus on Damian as Batman, last seen in the Time and the Batman trade and first introduced in Batman #666. I don't blame you for getting confused though since thanks to the #0 issue, #4 technically is the 5th issue.

Whoops! I read it when it came out, and I do not think I've seen it since.
