>>1824 >and oversaw the death of Jason Todd, the second Robin. The bastard. On one hand, we got Red Hood out of it. But on the other, we got a killer vigilante that isn't allowed to kill any actual villains. Limiting any story potential despite going up against Black Mask, Joker, Penguin, & Deathstroke. Not to mention now every version of Jason has to die then become Red Hood. Killing Jason was dumb. Bringing him back was dumber.
>>1825 He didnt kill Jason, they let the readers decide whether to kill him or not.
>>1826 Through a poll. That was rigged through voted fraud.
>>1827 Wasn't there one guy who rigged an autodialer to call the "die" number every ten minutes, or something like that?
>>1828 Yep. That's what I was getting at.
>>1827 >>1828 I've read that even with the fraud it was still looking like the concensus was for Jason to live, but the higher-ups decided last minute to kill him anyway, leading to the overall lower quality of the last page
>>1825 Jason Todd had problems as a character to begin with. They had to drastically retool him after the Crisis on Infinite Earths because he always kind of sucked. And frankly, he wasn't actually alive for that long, so it's not like they were ruining a great deal when they killed him. Bringing him back kind of ruins things though.

His run on the Question is one of my favorite Capeshit works of all time, so it sucks that he died, but at least he lived a long life.
>>1824 He is my favorite Batman writer. A shame to see him go. All my favs are getting old, so I should probably start bracing myself for more of them to die.
