Death can be a strange thing for superheroes, especially when it doesn’t quite stick. Just ask Jason Todd. As Batman’s second Robin, Jason died at the hands of the Joker when he was just a child. But he returned to life with the help of a Lazarus Pit and the literal warping of time and reality. He trained himself to be a killer and a mercenary, and he took on a new identity and code name—the Red Hood—in order to strike his own brand of fear in Gotham’s criminals.
Curran Walters' rebellious performance as Jason Todd on Titans has brought one of DC's most provocative characters back into the spotlight. In this episode of DC Tales from the Vault, Ben LeClear dives into Jason Todd's comic book history, as he reveals the story behind Batman's second Robin. Turns out Jason's story behind the page is almost as dramatic as his story on it!
