Jason Todd isn’t the kind of character who does limits. He fights dirty, uses excessive force, and will put his target down permanently if needs be. But if you’re going to operate in Gotham City, you toe the line set by its king vigilante. So after the shocking events of Red Hood and the Outlaws #25, Jason Todd has hit the road sans fellow Outlaws Artemis and Bizarro. This lone wolf is looking for a fight to sate his primal urges, but there’s still a part of him that would see justice done.
Just be careful with that crowbar, Jason.
Red Hood and the Outlaws #26 is a crucial turning point for Jason Todd as series writer Scott Lobdell teams with Justice League artist Pete Woods for a new character-defining arc that sets the former Robin on a brutal new path. After years of teaming with other personae non gratae, Jason has been cast out by Lobdell & Woods into a future of great uncertainty. Scanning the cover, it’s evident that this creative team is digging into the defining traits of a troubled fan favorite—from the red hood pulled sullenly over his iconic helmet to the bloody crowbar gripped in a tight fist, Red Hood has only himself to watch out for… an outlaw gone solo.
