Jason Todd will lead them (Red Hood and The Outlaws)

Huge news from the DC reboot this week. A lot of people are either happy , upset, or conflicted. Some things I don't like, like the fact that Dick is being reverted to Nightwing, but I do love the new colors on his uniform. A lot of people are upset that Babs will be walking apparently, and I definitely see their point but I won't get into that. As a person who has been a fan or Babs for a long time, I love both her Batgirl and Oracle runs. But the news that has made me the happiest so far, besides the JLI series, besides the fact that Dick has an awesome outfit, and besides the fact Kyle won't be lost in the shuffle, is the fact that Jason Todd, has finally returned to the side of the good guys, and he isn't alone, as he's LEADING a team, with one of my other favorites, Roy (Arsenal/The TWO-Armed Archer) as well as Starfire. This team, will be called, the Red-Headed Rejects. But seriously, Jason, Arsenal, and Starfire on one team (known as The Red Hood and The Outlaws) is awesome already, now if we can get some other awesome characters added (Wally West anyone?) then I may just forgive DC for giving everyone stupid collars on their costumes. Anyway, here's one plus myself, and other Jason Todd fans are definitely gonna be looking forward to.

Batman’s former sidekick had put his past as The Red Hood behind him, when the reclusive Jason Todd finds himself unwillingly elected as the leader of an all-new team of outlaw vigilantes.

As The Red Hood once again, Jason Todd will lead this new team of antiheroes, including Green Arrow’s rejected sidekick Arsenal and Starfire, a former prisoner of intergalactic war.

RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS will be written by Scott Lobdell and illustrated by rising superstar artist Kenneth Rocafort.


  1. 2 things:

    1) Why the stupid hat???

    2) Is that a red bat-symbol on jason's chest?

  2. Lol thanks for the comment Marco, and to answer ya questions

    1. Make Roy look...younger?

    2. And yes, it looks like it, I also wondered why the hell that was there...

  3. Oh GOD YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And Roy has TWO arms! At least we ALL know I'll be picking THIS one up!

  4. Man.... I was happier about THAT then I was about Jason's face turn! Now just add Cheshire or Wally or someone else to that team and MAN... I'll be one happy Mofo, and I don't mean Morrison Follower.

  5. and we don´t know anything about his hair yet Because with Roy in the team can be confusing

    ...a wait a moment. for that is the stupid hat!!!

  6. I knew you would be happy about this, JT. I know I'm certainly happy Jason & Roy are both back as good characters (hopefully). I don't understand the hat, but if it means Roy has two arms, and is an archer again, I'm happy.

  7. wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Jason!

    I've been really liking everything I've been reading from Lobdell in interviews!

  8. Thanks for the comments guys, I can't wait to show DC they made a good choice by giving Jason a series finally, a team to lead, Kory and Roy.
