How exactly does Jason pay for all his weapons, equipment, and living expenses? I mean, Bruce is filthy rich so thats how he can afford the Batmobile and what not, but somehow I doubt Bruce is giving Jason any sort of allowance XD, so how does Jason pay for his vast array of weaponry? I mean, in "Redhood & the Outlaws" issue 1 he even has a beachfront home on a tropical island, and can apparently afford to travel all the way from said island to the Himalayas.

In "Batman: Under the Redhood," Jason paid for all his stuff by taking huge cuts from the profits of all the big crime bosses in Gotham, claiming that since it was impossible to stop crime like Batman tried to do, he would instead CONTROL crime in Gotham. However, since Jason is clearly not in that extreme state of mind anymore, going from deluded supervillain to anti-hero, I think its safe to say he's not paying the bills in that particular fashion anymore (Starfire & Arsenal certainly wouldn't stick around if he was).

So yeah, does anyone have any info or ideas on where Jason gets his money from?

Talia at the end of lost days I think she said she would pay for all his expenses if he needed it. Could be wrong, been awhile since I read the issue.

In  one of the two new issues it says he robbed from crimelords and paid off pretty well he could still be riding that.

I liked all of it to be honest. I love that Jason is just that %^& up. It essentially ends any chance Talia has with Bruce which is another good thing. She essentially has not development without Batman, and lets be honest that makes her useless.

It was a desecration of her character. Talia loves to the point of total obsession, that's her shtick. That's what sets her apart from others. She would never betray Bruce like that. Winick just wanted to have his little pet screw someone hot.

@FadeToBlackBolt
I think we're going to have to agree to disagree. But someone who's into that extreme, like Talia's love obsession with Bruce is often prone to taking extreme revenge on the object of their affection that's jilted them.

Add Starfire to that list, he's boned Damian's mother, Bruce's ex and now Dick's ex but after leaving that for a cripple Grayson deserves it >:/

I'm just going to throw this out there... but two dollars a sailor down at the dock, and a lot of men looking at long services off at sea with no women? Jason has some awfully pretty facial features. Of course, Jason wouldn't be happy about it, but neither would the men in the Navy, so it all kind of balances out somewhere.

You never heard of a person who hates Jason? WOW.

He takes money from criminals and his relationship with Talia is ill defined,which is my biggest issue with Lost Days,so i'm supposed to believe she's been funding him non stop since UTRH? despite no mention and differing characterization at the hands of other writers.Winick just opened a pointless can of worms.

And she has'nt been with Bruce for a long time,she can get character development without having sex with a guy whom he raised as a son.

His initial funding came from Talia and the multiple shell corporation accounts she gave him access to. Follow that with his beggining of his drug trafficking, protection money, etc. that Jason has accrued in the form of his being a Crime Lord in Gotham, Star City, etc. Not only that, but apparently according to the new RH&O; he has also been screwing criminal organizations around the world out of money. Make no mistake, Jason Todd is rich. Not Bruce Wayne rich, but he is RICH.

Very cool, so basically he can tap into those corporation accounts whenever he has to on top of the money he cons out of criminal organizations around the world? Nice, & here I thought he was gonna need a financial backer or something >8D

Talia at the end of lost days I think she said she would pay for all his expenses if he needed it. Could be wrong, been awhile since I read the issue.

Judd Winick seriously needs to be put down for that arc. 
I liked all of it to be honest. I love that Jason is just that %^& up. It essentially ends any chance Talia has with Bruce which is another good thing. She essentially has not development without Batman, and lets be honest that makes her useless.
It was a desecration of her character. Talia loves to the point of total obsession, that's her shtick. That's what sets her apart from others. She would never betray Bruce like that. Winick just wanted to have his little pet screw someone hot. 
I'm going to engrave that on a plaque. Preferably protected by a case of hardened steel so I can beat someone senselessly over the head with it if they recommend Talia as a good girlfriend for Jason.

Don't know if anyone is suggesting a relationship like that.

Is this a joke? O_o 
 
Yes, we know for certain that it's Bruce.

To be honest, we are not 100% sure.

Talia gave him basic starting capital (a hella lot of money considering it's Al Ghul style "starting capital", enough to get him to the point he enters the scene in UTH), I don't think she's actively funding him like some kind of sugar mommy though.

Even if it's canon she is, I'm ignoring it because what she did made no sense to me in the context of her character.

But I'll grant him the big fat Bag o' Money from Talia to start him off.

He then amassed a large fortune from organized crime based assets, don't forget Jason Todd was the biggest drug dealer in Gotham at one point and eating every slice of the pie at that table... So he used that money wisely, no doubt various hedge funds, dummy companies, offshore accounts etc were involved to maximize returns in minimum time.

Jason isn't stupid, crazy maybe, misguided certainly, stupid... no.

What you need to understand is that for these people, who operate at this kind of level... Money is a mere detail, just another tool to get the job done.

Stealing stuff and selling it Id imagine, someone as trained as him would surely have some way to acquire money...
