We really havent seen enough to know what ''kind'' of hero he is... So far he reminds me mostly of a mix between Jason Todd and Dick Grayson... We have mostly seen him fighting other Talons who are not really alive or dead, so if he kills, i dont know... but from what ive seen, i wouldnt think he had the same strict code of not killing as Batman does, on the other hand he doesnt seem like the Punisher either. He is an interesting read so far, give him a try if you want to know more.

Calvin Rose is the type of person who has every reason not to trust people, but he does. Most of all Calvin wants to have a normal life and a family and to treat his family with the respect he never got; he was locked in a dog kennel in the pouring rain and left to die by his father. This psychological trauma fuels his talent as an escape artist and also paves the fate of him always running away, from the kennel, from the courts maze, from the court, from the butcher, even from the woman who he couldn't kill,Casey Washington. Given the Evidence I would label him as the Reluctant hero who can't escape his fate , he must accept it. My guess that moment will come with his contact with the dark knight.

This another New52 book I'd slept on (Firestorm being the other) and jumped on late. I'm glad I did though and I'm buying back issues left and right.

I'd say he's an Anti-Hero. He's out to Kill the other talons whereas Batman would just arrest them.

He isn't a hero, he's stated that himself. He doesn't want to be a hero or a villain. He just wants to destroy the court of owls and live a "normal life" but he can't now because he died so he's now going to try to find the pit the brought Jason Todd back to life so he can be mortal again.
