This is a very interesting topic. Taking into account the years after he died, which is about five before he returned as the Red Hood, thats a long time to have continued working under Batman. I think eventually, Bruce would have gotten through to him. He would still have that anger running through him, but I think he'd control it better. I really do believe that mentally, Jason is the closest to Bruce. Both have the mentality that makes them want a safer Gotham at the cost of their own personal lives. Dick and Tim dont have that issue. They both have lives, girlfriends and real friends. Jason and Bruce, are all about the job. I think while Dick wanted to bust out and become his own man, Jason would have taken a new identity but stayed in the shadow of Batman, his lieutenant up to current.
I think Jason is a character to himself. Yes he kills criminals, and if thats all you're looking at then he could be DC's version of Punisher, skull on the chest included. However, when you add in the rest of his history, sidekicking to Batman, dying, returning and then allowing his rage to fuel his desire to clean the streets permanently, it starts to look like a completely different character. He has similarities to many, but none fit the same packaging. And to finish this off... JASON TODD IS... AWESOME!!!!
I'm not sure the risk is worth the reward. I love the idea of it when it comes to comic books, but taking a step back from that and putting this in real-world... The risk of that sidekick getting hurt or worse would just be too much. Its one thing to risk your own life, but when you have someone elses life in your hands, its hard to pull that slot machine handle.
Two pages for Conner and Damien in the future??? Thats worth five bucks right there! Cmon DC, why aren't you doing a series of Titans Tomorrow and Beyond since no one is ever gonna really get older?!?
I'm digging Booster Gold. Ever since 52, the character has turned around for me and makes me follow him to books like Justice League: Generation Lost and the Time Masters. Can't wait to pick up issue # 2!
