jason todd has powers?

#1 Posted by redhoodx (75 posts) - - Show Bio

In red hood and the outlaws #5 jason todd displays powers as he wields to daggers that have flame on them. It looked awesome! Not sure if he has powers or not, but I think he does. My question is if people will hate jason for having powers? I wish I had some scans to show you, but if you read stormwatch, it looks like the swordmans power.

No. Jason does not have powers, the blades do which is why he cut himself to fuel the blades' powers.

@god_spawn: I said I wasn't sure. And in issue one he see's essence when no one else can, and when she teleported away he says I got to learn that one. From what I gather is that since he is all caste, he got abilities like like the other all caste. Durca could talk to him when she was dead and one of his trainers could turn his body into smoke. So is it so hard to believe he got powers?

@redhoodx: Its feasible he has some connection to the All Caste as a result of his training which was why he could speak to Ducra or Ducra had powers and chose to speak to him, she was heavily intuned with spirits and they were in a spiritual place. Also he was away from everyone when Essence was talking to him if I'm not mistaken and she just up and disappeared right after so it wasn't like he was with people. But none of that inclines he would have superpowers.

@god_spawn: When jason was talking to essence roy looked over saw and said that jason was talking to him self, but he was talking to her. So he has to be at least spirtually aware. The perfect test would be if he could see deadman.

@redhoodx: Thanks for the refresher but fair enough he could at least be spiritually aware at least with the All Caste or Essence just wanted only Jason to see her. I'm not one for going off covers but If the rest of the team sees her based off that one cover preview it looks like they will be fighting her if it's true which means I think she can choose who sees her.

I wouldn't mind if he knew some little tricks, nothing insane but some small stuff would be interesting

Jason doesn't have powers, the blades are magical and require the blood to be imbued with these special attributes. The actual question is whether we like the new "All-Caste" vibe going on.

@ReVamp: I like the all-caste vibe, I think i know where lobdell is going with this story and its good. scotts making it look like jason came back to life for a reason. I hate when you bring people back and don't have a plan. My biggest point, hawkeye and Jean Grey. they did not need to come back and die again to serve no purpose. for once jason has his own course. and it works. as for jason having powers what do you think of jason being spirtually aware?

@redhoodx: Those were the All-Blades, he doesn't have power.

@redhoodx: Well, he doesn't have any powers, but being Spiritually aware isn't really a power unto itself, just a skill. I like that he's getting distinguished from the Bat-Family, it gives Direction to the characters.

  • Batman - Gets Suit + He's the goddamned Batman
  • Tim - Gets Flight plus Tech
  • Damian - Gets Anger and Skill
  • Jason - Gets the mystical spiritual shtick
  • Babs - Intellect

Dick is the only one that doesn't have anything really... I hope he gets his Arkham City Escrima sticks.

@ReVamp: Dick has those Tasers he's been using every issue, so that's something

#14 Posted by ReVamp (22859 posts) - - Show Bio

@BlackArmor: Believe me, I know. But he's had that for a long time and while it does seem to be kinda different since he now can choose the level that he can charge it to, its still not enough to warrant a "specialization".

#15 Posted by BlackArmor (6121 posts) - - Show Bio

@ReVamp: Fair enough, maybe if they showed off his acrobatics more?

#16 Posted by ReVamp (22859 posts) - - Show Bio

@BlackArmor: I was thinking about that after I posted it, but you can't really always have the show of acrobatics. You can have it when he's jumping from rooftop to rooftop, but if he's like... fighting, you can't really show it off, while for the others you can. So, no, I don't think Acrobatics would do the trick.

@ReVamp: No idea then, maybe he could join an agency or something, I'm sure he'll do something to really set him apart eventually

#18 Posted by ReVamp (22859 posts) - - Show Bio

@BlackArmor: Hopefully. I really liked issue 5 though, so for now I'm mega happy.

same here

@daredevil21134: @BlackArmor: Yeah, same here. Its really awesome, but I think that he needs to start spacing out because at the fast pace that he's actually going it changing the character of Todd too much.

Well I still feel like i'm reading about Jason,I just feel like he's adding some much needed depth to the character.But I get what your saying

#23 Posted by redhoodx (75 posts) - - Show Bio

@daredevil21134: I agree, jason has been juggled to much to have depth in the past. jason is still plenty angry and kickass, but now he doesn't let it rule him like before which is good growth.

Looks like Jason is getting an upgrade with this All-Caste angle interesting.

And he's not brooding over Bruce not killing the Joker anymore. A welcome sight.

@entropy_aegis: Him being so p*ssed off at Bruce and the Bat family was getting really redundant, so I think its great that he's putting all of that behind him.

Agreed,making him all emo was pointless cause we all know Joker is'nt gonna die.

@entropy_aegis: LOL exactly.
