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.
jason todd has 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.
@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.
@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: 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.
@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.
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.
I love it
@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
@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.
And I love that
@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.
