Raised by the League of Assassins , Damian eventually came to live with his father and took on the mantle of Robin. When Talia unleashed an attack against Batman and Gotham City, Damian fell victim to the Heretic , his artificially aged and genetically enhanced clone. Damian was resurrected with the Chaos Shard , a powerful and magical crystal that once belonged to Darkseid. Nightwing got captured by the Crime Syndicate , an evil version of the Justice League from an alternate Earth. His identity was publicly exposed, and he was later attached to a nuclear bomb.
The only way to disarm the bomb was for Grayson to die. Lex Luthor, working with Batman, caused Dick's death with a pill that paralyzed the cardiac muscles around his heart. He was revived with a shot of adrenaline. Grayson may not have completely died, but everyone was lead to believe he did. Batman needed Dick to go undercover to infiltrate the Spyral organization which had targeted the superhero community. Dick spent some time as a "spy" until he returned to his Nightwing persona. Tim Drake was the third Robin. He deduced Batman's identity after the death of Jason Todd and convinced him Batman needed a Robin to keep him in check.
When a military group known as the Colony targeted Batman and Gotham, Tim hacked into their system to redirect hundreds of attack drones that would have killed innocents. He defeated the first wave but was vaporized by the second. Batman and his allies have mourned Tim's death, but it turns out he was actually teleported away and kept prisoner by the mysterious Mr.

Fabulous fungi Go on the hunt for fabulous fungi! After the group is sent back to Earth, Todd leaves the group and returns to his crimefighting ways.
When the Morticoccus virus is released from Karate Kid 's body, he is forcibly brought back to the group by Kyle, much to his dismay. When the Challengers return to New Earth, Todd disposes of his Red Robin costume and abandons the rest of the group, though they go on to declare to the Monitors that they are now the monitors of the Monitors.
Todd and Drake are confronted by another Red Robin in Robin , whose identity is initially a mystery but later turns out to be Ulysses Armstrong. Due to a combination of Red Robin's involvement and a gun-toting gang member, Todd was shot in the leg and arrested by police. Upon the resolution of the gang war in Gotham, Drake under a pseudonym visited Todd in prison to give him the Justice League access code to release himself from prison. Todd is booked under a pseudonym John Doe , due to there being no identifiable prints on file for any member of the main bat heroes as well as Jason is still legally dead.
After hearing the statement in private, Todd prepares to leave, not revealing what he was told, although he does pause before his old costume and the tattered remains of Batman's, he is clearly sad. Jason Todd reappeared in the " Battle for the Cowl " series. His inner monologue reveals that he had always wanted to eventually replace Batman, and thinks it was a bad idea for Batman to become a public figure, rather than an urban legend. After stabbing Tim Drake in the chest with a batarang, he and Dick Grayson battle down in the subway. This allowed Grayson to officially take up the mantle of Batman.
It is later revealed in Battle for the Cowl that Bruce Wayne's last words to Jason were of regret at how he had obviously overlooked the young man's deep emotional problems. He thought he could do what could never be done for him and 'make him whole'. His message goes on to plead that Todd get psychiatric help, a notion that the latter rejects.
It is suggested by Dick Grayson that Todd was infuriated by Wayne's last words, a reaction that led him to becoming monstrous, murdering Batman in that same arc. Plus, it aggravated his hatred towards the Bat-family, as he repeatedly attempts to kill members of it. With the goal of making the very concept of Batman obsolete, he puts a lot of effort into public relations : he drastically alters his Red Hood costume to look more like a traditional superhero outfit and recruits his own sidekick Scarlet.
In their war on crime, Red Hood and Scarlet freely kill criminals, villains, and anyone who gets in their way, even the police.

He leaves behind a calling card which states "let the punishment fit the crime. Todd has reappeared with red hair, claiming that he is a natural red-head and that Bruce Wayne had him dye his hair black in order to look like Dick Grayson as in his pre- Crisis origins. He also claims the white streak of hair that he got is from being resurrected in the Lazarus Pit though the white streak disappears again. A fight between Batman, Robin, and the Flamingo-a foreign hitman hired by a Mexican cartel after Red Hood killed their operative in Gotham-ends with Jason burying Flamingo in debris with a bulldozer.
Flamingo is assumed dead, although Commissioner Gordon reports that his body can't be recovered from beneath the rubble. Grayson offers to rehabilitate Todd who, in a moment of clarity, tells Grayson it is too late for him, and how he tried to be what Batman wanted, "but this world As Gordon leads him away, Todd tauntingly asks Grayson why he hasn't put Wayne's corpse into a Lazarus Pit to bring him back, citing his own resurrection from its bath.
Scarlet flees Gotham, her mask finally falling from her face as she exits the city limits. Jason files an appeal to be moved from Arkham Asylum where he's been held for observation for the last several months. Bruce Wayne as Batman visits him there to inform Jason he's in Arkham for his own protection. Jason points out he's passed all the psychological tests repeatedly and there is no reason to keep him in what he calls Batman's "kennel of freaks". Jason is transferred to a Gotham prison and upon his arrival, the suicide rate spikes amongst top incarcerated crime figures there.
Several homicides occur due to many botched attempts on Jason's life by inmates with a grudge against Red Hood's tactics. Jason escalates things further by poisoning the cafeteria, killing 82 and sickening more inmates. He is immediately transferred back to Arkham but is broken out of the paddy wagon by a group of mercenaries. Jason breaks free and fights them off all the same as Batman and Robin arrive. Once the hired guns are subdued they reveal their employer has captured Scarlet, Jason's former sidekick. Dick, Damian, and Jason go to one of the Red Hood's weapon caches where he assembles a composite costume made from his biker and "superhero" Red Hood attire.
The three intend to rescue Scarlet. Batman and Robin attempt to chase him, but Red Hood tells them that he planted bombs over Gotham City months ago. Scarlet desires to stay with Red Hood as his partner. Red Hood and Scarlet head towards an unknown destination. In this new timeline, Jason's new origin is revealed in a special Red Hood and the Outlaws 0 November issue, which changes the manner in which Batman first met Todd stealing medicine from Leslie Thompkins , after she had treated him from a brutal beating.
The back-up introduces a massive retcon in which the Joker is responsible for orchestrating the major moments of Todd's life such as his father's imprisonment and death, his mother's overdose, his introduction to Thompkins and his adoption of the Robin identity. Considering the Joker is the one narrating this segment, it is open to debate whether he is telling the truth or not. Though only lightly touched on, his resurrection is also simplified: he is resurrected after he is placed into the Lazarus Pit by Talia al Ghul.
Following the events of the " Flashpoint " storyline, the DC universe was relaunched, with Red Hood becoming the leader of the Outlaws in their own series, part of the New 52 line of comics.

The team also includes Starfire and Roy Harper. Instead of being trained by various men after his return from the dead, Jason Todd was trained by an order of warriors known as the All Caste. He soon tires of Gotham and leaves, gathering the group together; after breaking out Roy from a Middle Eastern prison, he brings Roy up to speed on things.
The two start on very friendly terms. Roy and Starfire are in a sexual relationship. However, Starfire makes it clear to Roy that it is only physical, with no emotional ties. Essence, a fellow exiled member of the All Caste whom Jason knows, appears to him, but is invisible to others. She sets Jason on a mission to hunt down a group known as "The Untitled", telling him of people missing organs before death without any sign of removal, which is their calling card.
To top it off, Essence shows that the order of the All Caste, the people most qualified to handle the situation, have been slaughtered, leaving her and Jason as the only known survivors. Jason is forced to destroy the bodies of his teachers and friends.
