For those who have been following the whole Return of Bruce Wayne and everything that has to deal with that. I would like to hear the opinions of some of the Jason Todd fans. Now that Bruce has decided to literally franchise Batman, what does this mean for our favorite Anti-Hero in the red hood? How will this franchising effect Jason?
Jason and Batman Inc.?
He should NOT be incorporated. Jason is a loose cannon, always has been. He's the wild card that Batman could never account for, which is why he is such a menace. If anything, he could be a monkey wrench, posing a Batman, pulling his crazy schemes, and then, having Batman deal with that in the context of his new group.
They should just keep him as an anti hero using the Red Hood name. I liked him better as the Red Hood, he's become a much more interesting character now and a good addition to Batman's rogues gallery, a Robin gone bad. Like johnny spam said
" Jason has been a disappointment to Bruce since he came back after everything he has pulled he would not be involved at all. "Jason has crossed that line Bruce doesn't cross, for Jason to be taken in and become a Batmen would taint everything Batman stands for.
@Unwritten Duck: I forgot who I think Tony Daniel at Comic Con said that he will be a villain to Dick like Joker for him. Which contradicts hints from Grant Morrison who said Jason could still be good and may appear in Inc.
" @speedlgt: Tim will remain Red Robin Bruce is not making an army of Batman but representatives.

I heard about that too.Their never cosistent
I still think in some ways Jim Starlin ruined him when he killed him and even Judd Winick to some degree making him act like a villain.
" @Primmaster64: Hopefully the sales of his mini changes their minds and he gets his own series "The numbers on this series have been terrible so I don't know about a series but Judd Winick expressed interest in using him again somewhere.
Fun Fact Generation Lost was going to be about lost heroes like Connor Hawke and even Jason Todd but the JLI took the series.

I read that too.That would have been intereseting and their are a few titles DC has right now that have been selling worse than Red Hood Lost Days
" @Primmaster64: I didn't just hate the red hair. I hated the costume and I hated the story arc. I liked Jason's little sidekick (I forgot her name, I think it was scarlet), but that was the only thing I liked about that run. Like I said I thought the whole Youtube exploration that Jason tried to do on Dick and Damian was stupid. Dialogue was also below par of what I've come to expect from Morrison. Also one of my most appalled lines ever written in comics is in one of those issues. I don't have the full quote, but it's when Jason talks about getting zits from wearing his helmet and having a receding hairline. What I liked about Battle for the Cowl Jason was how Jason seemed to go more over the edge than he ever had. It was almost like the news of Bruce's death was too much for him or too good to be true. What I thought was so awesome was how much of a bastard Jason had become. In Battle for the Cowl he almost kills several Iconic Batman figures. Also that final fight between Jason and Dick was made of awesome in my opinion. I just really enjoyed Battle for the Cowl. "
I thought the between fight Jason and Dick was bad Jason really got pounded it seem to one sided
Jason wont be invited to the batmen inc. due to his willingness to kill .When he first appeared his actions were about doing a better job than bruce in the war against crime, pushing the line where bruce wouldnt go to make better results.In bftc driven to prove he would make a better batman than bruce and in batman and robin i guess the same.He is obssesd with proving hes ways are the way things have to be done now .a batman inc may push him too break free and teach all the other batwannabes what a true protector must do to keep his city safe and maybe even take out those not suited for the war against crime.whatever jason does it wont be along side bruce or dick or anyother batman.
" @Primmaster64: I agree. I don't see how anyone could have liked Flamingo. I have yet to encounter a convincing argument to make him in the slightest way likable. "i liked him
he was strong, good fighter ,colorful and a total nutcase.he fits batman's insane arkham profile.and most of all he was a new type of colorful flamboyant villian for a new batman.
