Red Hood and the Outlaws | Comics

Dick Grayson was Batman’s first crime-fighting sidekick and the first Robin, who grew up to his own identity of the solo superhero Nightwing and left the Robin mantle behind. After Dick, Batman found a troubled orphan boy from the streets of Crime Alley to be his newest sidekick and the second Robin. What they didn’t knew was that Jason’s becoming Robin was a plan The Joker had in mind and very subtly manipulated the deaths of his parents.

He eventually fell into a trap set by Joker, where he was beaten to death only to be revived later by Talia al Ghul through the use of Lazarus Pit. He became a bit unstable and received new training. After hanging out with the League of Assassins for a while, Jason realized their way does not suit him best and he left.

Now assuming the new identity of Red Hood, he calls up his former friend Roy Harper from his days as Robin who was also a side kick of another vigilante hero named Green Arrow previously and now going by the name Arsenal. Princess Koriand'r AKA Starfire of the planet Tamaran is also grouped in and together they formed a squad of freelance mercenaries to avenge the enemies of justice.

After leaving the shadow of The Dark Knight, Jason started taking somewhat unethical moves in fighting crime like killing his opponents which earned him a reputation among the underworld. Red Hood fought Ra's al Ghul and later as a second chance, he was offered place in Batman Incorporated by Batman. Some time later, Jason would find himself teamed-up with Artemis and Bizarro.
