Robin and Daredevil

You just know this is the Jason Todd Robin, the little punk!  I shouldn't be too hard on him though, he may have a bad attitude but he never caught a break.  Even after getting his history rewritten by Crisis on Infinite Earths, he still didn't get a modern updated costume like Tim Drake and Damian Wayne did, and had to wear the shorts and pixie boots well past their expiration date.  Jason has always had costume issues though... even when he returned from the dead, he would wear his Red Hood full face mask over his Robin style domino mask.  Now that's dedication.

Dave sez,

Cool team-up!
Jason Todd really got the short straw. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was the wrong Robin. he should never have been a punk. But, Dick hadn't really been either a sidekick or a boy wonder since the early '70's! And Jason was introduced somewhere around the early '80's. Jason could have been Tim Drake - he should have been. I think Jason is an example of poor choices in writing and editing.

Nightwing and Moon Knight are featured on an upcoming cover.

I started collecting comics, mostly DC, in the early 80's, so Jason Todd was actually the Robin I am most familiar with. Dick was already leading the Titans and actually not speaking to Bruce much at the time (remember the Outsiders/Titans team-up?) So as a kid of the '80s, I don't have anything bad to say about Todd ;o) I was actually pleased he came back as the Red Hood, and I usually absolutely hate it when the bring heros back from the dead.
