The Lost Comic Timing Episode – Batman: Under the Red Hood

BTTF

GREAT SCOTT!!!

Gather round, as we go back in time to August 18, 2010. Yup, exactly six years ago to the day. Before Avengers was a movie, before The New 52, before Brent was married, and before Ian owned a smartphone. In this never before released episode, Juan de Jesus returns from a long hiatus, which is now even longer, to join Brent and Ian to review the Batman: Under the Red Hood animated movie, followed by some thoughts on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and why it flopped at the box office. Time flies when you completely forget an episode exists! But this is classic Comic Timing goodness, that’s for sure. Dig in, and reminisce on days gone by.

Thanks again for listening, and we’ll catch you next time!

ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 53: Batman’s Red Hood – Jason Todd

In another installment of our origins series of ComicsVerse Podcast episodes, we look at one of the most controversial characters in all of comics history; Batman’s second Robin Jason Todd. Created to replace Dick Grayson, who at the time was fronting DC’s best-selling New Teen Titans title, the character was initially a carbon-copy of the original Robin in both back story and demeanor.

After the continuity-changing CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS series, DC took the opportunity to revamp Jason into a streetwise “punk” character. After several years of middling to negative fan reaction to the character, DC set up their infamous “phone-stunt” where readers could vote on whether Jason lived or died. After a very close (and some would say rigged) vote, Jason was killed. His death would stand for almost two decades as Batman’s greatest failure, with his tattered costume always hanging in the Bat-Cave as a constant reminder. That is until writer Judd Winick brought the character back to life as the Red Hood in the mid-2000s. Since then, he’s been a major player in the DC Universe.

Joining me, Staff Writer and Social Media Specialist Brian Delpozo, on this podcast are host and Comicsverse Editor-In-Chief Travis Czap, writer Fabio Castelblanco, and frequent Comicsverse Podcast contributor Malia Knight. We discuss the character of Jason, his introduction, how Post-Crisis continuity changes affected his personality, and his evolution into Red Hood through careful examinations of numerous works centered on the character including “Second Chances,” “A Death In The Family,” “A Lonely Place Of Dying,” “Hush,” and “Enter The Red Hood.”
