Discuss everything Jason Todd.

#2 Edited by daredevil21134 (12374 posts) - - Show Bio

As a part of their exclusive DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight (rumored for a release early next year), GameStop will be offering a Red Hood story DLC alongside their already announced Harley Quinn story DLC. Earlier today a Facebook post from GameStop teased a hooded figure that will be revealed tomorrow. Fortunately, an image has leaked showing the figure, Red Hood, in his full glory. Nothing other than the fact that it is a Red Hood central story pack has been revealed, but more information should emerge soon.

Thanks for the invite.

Jason Todd, is a badass. I want to ask who writes and what is your favorite story featuring Jason?

As for Arkham Knight, I am not much a gamer, I don't even own a PS3, but that looks pretty cool.

Anytime bro,

My favorite story of Jason is Red Hood Lost Days with Under The Red Hood as a close second

My favorite writer is Judd Winick and Scott Lobdell would be second

JASON!

Hell Yes!!!

Sweet, I was gonna say the exact same.

Lost Days and UtRH are both simply amazing

And same with the writers as well. I do like how New52 Jason has calmed down, grown as a character, and is back in the Batman family, the rage filled vigilate that annoys Batman or Nightwing over and over would have gotten old.

It ran it's course.I like the fact that he can work with Batman and still do his own thing.He still uses guns and he still will kill when necessary.That's just awesome.Oh and he actually has a steady direction for a change

Yeah,I heard but I was thinking they were talking about the mantle rather than the person inside.But as long as Jason is in it I could care less who Arkham Knight turns out to be.I heard the Red Hood story will tie in to the game.I hope that's true

@daredevil21134: Always liked the Lost Days costume, always liked the black jacket and I'm not a fan of the "face" of the current helmet.

Also while I was looking for this picture I reminded me of this and doesn't it look exactly like the DLC costume?

what do you think of this fight?

It seemed like Jason was Post Crisis, and thats probably why he lost. New 52 Jason would have stomped him.

What's your favorite Jason Todd costume?

  1. Under the Red Hood.
  2. Armored Batman.
  3. New 52.

It ran it's course.I like the fact that he can work with Batman and still do his own thing.He still uses guns and he still will kill when necessary.That's just awesome.Oh and he actually has a steady direction for a change

Yup, he is actually trying to be back with the family. He's gone from repeatedly beating up Tim, to being his brother. And how he doesn't use kill shots in team ups. I like that he can still kill, but he isn't quite as crazy. Don't get me wrong, I loved Under the Red Hood, and how badass he was there, but its nice for him to grow. Especially since Ducra,says he will eventually lose all rage to make room for love, or something of the like.

Well why I don't mind him teaming with Bruce occasionally I think i'd prefer him not to be a full fledged member of the family.But I do agree with everything you said.I also thin pre 52 Jason could have still beat the Punisher

I love this costume a lot

Why? Just because he isn't an angry vigilate doesn't mean he is not still Jason.

When he's just falling in step with the Bat family and trying to be a hero I don't find him interesting

Yeah I don't want him to be a member of that family but it's gonna be hard to keep him away from Batman with his recent rise in popularity so I don't mind an occasional team up

I like Tim Drake a lot but I still think if they both went all out the same results would occur just like in the Titan Tower.Jason's older stronger, deadlier and equally or more skilled than Tim.Tim also will hold back Jason won't..So yeah I don't think it would've made a difference

@allstarsuperman: @daredevil21134: This fight was before one year later Tim became a better fighter after that and Jason fought dirty at the end.But I do believe Jason takes the majority simply because he fights dirty that's actually what I like best about him.I don't hate the New 52 Jason or anything but it just doesn't feel like Jason with out the dirty fighting but anyway here's the full fight.

@darkbeam: Thing is Jason seemed to hold back back then. He was just in a mood to piss Batman off. So his fight with Tim, Green Arrow, and Speedy, were all him holding back imho. I haven't read the Nightwing brothers in blood story yet though.

I still think Jason would have beaten him with his upgrades.Yeah,i've seen that fight hundreds of times.Jason fights ruthless.New 52 Jason still has some of that ruthlessness but it's toned down a bit

@god_spawn What do you think about Jason vs Tim.

There was several time during that fight when he could've killed Tim but he wanted to lecture him and teach him a lesson.Jason was leagues above Tim in that fight so I don't think another a year of training would put Tim above him but that's just my opinion.I would recommend skipping Brothers in Blood.It was awful.

Because it was easier,but that didn't mean he needed to use them.It's not like Tim fought fair either.He used a Crowbar on Jason lol

@darkbeam: Jason still wins. I only read BftC once, I'll reread it and answer, but Jasn pretty much stomped him IIRC

It was a stomped until Tim used the Crowbar. Jason was lecturing him again.He even asked him to be his Robin lol

It was his Kryptonite lol
