It is a sad occurrence A company decides its time to introduce a new, better character, but the character never makes it past issue 13 because people can't get over not seeing the character they "know and love."
Jason Todd was set up to be better than Dick. All logic said he had to be, as Batman even took the Robin mantle away from the beloved Dick to give to this new, fresh, BETTER hero.
But from the get-go, all anyone heard was that Jason wasn't as good. He wasn't Dick. He was a stupid character. And so DC gave the option, and the masses decided it wasn't enough to be strapped to a chair and beaten with a crowbar. Jason Todd had to be blown up.
Face it folks, most of you have no vision. Thats why Jason's dead. That's why Bart Allen is dead. And thats why countless, deserving characters never made it to a monthly series.
I love Jason Todd. He's the kind of character DC needs. some one to stir the pot who isn't in insane genius (Joker, Deathstroke, etc..). Now he's back. Written marvelously back into the continuum to fill in voids that no one else can.
We call people ghetto, red necked, and trash mostly because we can see their ignorance. Well, if you can't give a perfectly good character a full year to prove himself before you start nay-saying, i can see yours.
