@youknowwhattodo

Who doesn't love Jason Todd, he's such an underrated character who isn't even at his peak potential. Does anybody know which comic it is when he is about to kill Batman in a similar fashion as the Arkham Knight was?

Red Hood and the outlaws,Batman Eternal and Batman & Robin

i for one am liking the way things are going with jason right now, i think i'll pass on the "let's make him another punisher" bandwagon

I don't want him to be a Punisher clone but I also don't want him as a meaner version of Nightwing.Jason is working with Batman a little too much lately.One time he was even shooting people in the leg terminator style,that's what happens when he works with Batman,he looses part of his appeal.Jason whole deal is he lost faith in Batman's system,and rightfully so,he doesn't believe it's effective enough to make a difference because guys like The Joker get locked away and come out just to kill again and again.,And why is every vigilante that uses guns and kills have to compared to the Punisher?Jason is way different than Frank.

Now that I've both seen the movie and read the comic for Under the Red Hood... does anyone else like the movie more?

I thought they both were awesome but I could have done without the crossovers in the comics

meaner version of nightwing? i dont even.... no comment

the initial fallout between him and bats was great and i love utrh as much as the next guy, but you cant keep him in that direction because it's a dead end.

a dc would never let him kill off a big gotham rougue.

b killing off fodder villians can and has gotten old.

c having him work with bats while not being on working terms stops making sense after the third time. if they have such different views either keep jason out of gotham or have them work together through some type of compromise. dc chose the latter and it wouldn't be the first bats worked with a killer(huntress anyone?)

i make the comparison with punisher because the same thing happened, eventially frank was written into a dead end now marvel is doing the same thing by actually moving him forward. jason can kill and use guns, but he needs some form of diplomacy and maturity. him being batmans biggest failure shouldn't be the only thing to write home

Huntress had stopped killing for a very long time.She too had got soft when she joined the Birds of Prey.I'm not asking for him to go around shooting everything that moves,but part of his appeal to me is that he drops bad people,it doesn't have to be in Gotham,he can kill baddies in his own series if DC gave him one.I don't mind them working together occasionally but I rather him be on his own and out of Gotham.I personally never found Frank Castle getting stale at all.And Batman always kept Huntress at a distance until she had finally shaped up.

I understand what you mean - it felt like there were more characters than were necessary in the comic.

Other than that I thought it was cool

@daredevil21134: Holy shit I loved those issues, thats some classic stuff. Now I'm going to read Bendis's run again, the Owl really seemed like a threat in his run. That fight has to be one of the coolest things I ever read.

He took on 107 members of the Yakuza all pumped on MGH and won.That's hardcore.Now the guy that took down the Kingpin of crime can't deal with the a B list group like Sons of the Serpents because they blackmailed him..The thing with DD is he doesn't quit,he would never let them win like that.Waid's DD is pathetic .

That's still my hope... "I'm not Daredevil" is the clue in plain sight....this isn't Daredevil, the real one is another dimension.

Yup

@qtmxd: Exactly!DD was so hardcore under Bendis.Bendis made DD take the fight to the villains and the media.He dared them to come after him and when the did they were sorry.That's the DD I love.Waid took a legendary story and made it into an awful gag that should be on Barney the dinosaur.Now the idiots at Marvel sell T.Shirts of the stupid i'm not DD gag

@qtmxd: I agree with you but if they're gonna fix it they might as well fix the whole thing.I think it had ran it's course anyways.That's why Brubaker tried to fix it

I'm still surprised the newspaper matt sued in Bendis run aren't coming after him now that he revealed his identity.

Waid DD reality is less realistic than Bendis's.The Owl made Matt fall in a fiery pit lol in a haunted mansion.

The stories were good though .Man what a difference.I wonder when Waid will introduce Pee-wee Herman

@grenadeflow: That's the thing,Karl Kessel and Joe Kelly wrote a witty Daredevil but at least their stories were somewhat interesting ,Waid is getting Miller level praise by the internet and I can't understand why.Is Matt gonna be in AXIS?Because I loved the way Remender wrote him in AVX when he fought Psylocke he wasn''t written unskilled or witty like Waid's DD .Waid's DD is just a acrobatic gymnast with hyper senses who can punch and kick,he's been owned by Dr'Doom's henchmen,he's been owned by B list groups like Sons of the Serpent,and he just stated that the Shroud could have possibly killed him if he wanted, and he was owned by the Black Panther's guards.Sighhhhhhh

BTW, in between posts, I just checked out the fight in the second part of the Wakanda story online, which I hadn't seen before, and I think it's appalling. DD fighting a bunch of near naked "native" black guys in body paint? This kind of racial imagery is not what I expect to see in any comic in 2014.

As a Black Panther fan I was irritated by that like a simple google search would show you how the Wakandan warriors dress. It took me back to the 70's jungle action series

This is coming from a writer who just made Matt say Jack never put on hand on him.Not surprising, all the praise has gotten to Mark Waid's head.He believes he can do no wrong.

I think the stuff wrote about Jack and Maggie will be forgotten. But the identity has to at least go back to the Brubaker status if the character is ever to be recognizable.

I agree.I rather him just have his secret back all together.I'm sick of villains calling him by his name
