Thanks to Red X on myspace, I've been thinking more about this character. They need to bring Red X into mainstream DC. Here's Red X's myspace fan page: http://myspace.com/iloveredx
Yo ho, I'd be that Red X that Nyxy mentioned. Thanks for the shout out, Nyx.
Red X was introduced as a mystery figure. Jason Todd was only introduced as a theory, along with... Robin's clone, long lost brother, inter-dimensional imp, Robin after time traveling, or a bionic monkey infused with Robin's DNA. So if Jason Todd is a valid theory, so is the bionic monkey. And, yeah yeah, Jason Todd was stealing the Batmobile's tires, but Red X was supposed to be a mystery. That way he wouldn't be a name or identity, he'd just be a living embodiment of Robin's mistake.
Yea bring him in! I can't think of who he could really be that was be shocking. Maybe...Ted Kord! Yea wouldn't that shock you. Had Jason been introduced as Red X instead of Red Hood it'd all be good and he could still become Red Robin.
Hmm, maybe it's Batgirl, doing the whole Echo/Ronin thing. :D What? Everyone else is spitting out random ideas. But I do see an obsession with red here...hmm. Any other theories? What other teen-ish master thieves do we know of? I'm drawing a blank, but I'm more of a Marvel comics gal.

Bronze Tiger would be different.
"I do like Red X and i think it would be cool to bring him into the DC universe i mean Jason Todd does need a new side now Scarlet has gone.....
Red Hood and Red X, sounds good. But if Jason is Red Hood, who would be Red X?
" Tim is cool. Red Robin is bringing him to new heights. The costume.. . he needs a new one. It's so unoriginal... Ignore my avatar though, it contradicts my post. "Yeah, I know. He's his own person now, I understand why he became Red Robin (he saw himself as the Robin who failed) but when Bruce comes back, he should don something new.
" @FadeToBlackBolt: Probably won't happen though. Unless they rename the series, but knowing DC that's not very likely. At least not for 50 or so more issues. "OR! He could become Robin again, and Damian could become Red X, and serve as Nightwing's partner.
