Recently, I’ve been randomly having Jason Todd feels and I realize that I visualize him quite differently from how he’s portrayed in fanfiction and fanart.
I’d like to know how YOU see Jason Todd. His personality, how he acts socially. What he likes, what he doesn’t like. The kind of people he’d want to associate with. His mentality. ANYTHING! Tell me how you feel about Jason Todd. And remember, there is no wrong answer(this is just me trying to get a feel of how people view him and it would be a lot of help to me). And hey, if you’re not a fan, do me a solid and pass this along to your friends. Tell them about it and ask them to share their opinions, headcanons, WHATEVER. :)
What is your perspective?
Okay, so. This is a tl;dr mess of feelings and introspection, and I don’t expect everyone to agree with it. It’s my interpretation, and I tried to include the panels and pages that influence how I see him. This really only focuses on post-Crisis Jason and his relationship with Bruce, and it’s still over 8k. If I delved into my take on his relationship with the other Robins, I’m pretty sure it would be too long for anyone to read.
Okay so this is literally fucking perfect
If I was anywhere near as cool as Kitty I would be able to write an essay in response but I’m not, so fucking perfect will have to do.
All I can say is I read Battle for the Cowl fairly soon after introduction to Batfamily canon (by the way of the Under the Red Hood film) and after reading that scene with the Bruce hologram my immediate reaction was ‘holy shit this kid was turning tricks when he was a kid and this explains so much’ followed with ‘ohmygawd Bruce you can’t wait until you die to offer Jason help with his issues and say you finally understand where you went wrong’ but you just put that so much more eloquently with panels and references like a goddamn Jasonology paper so you get a first with honours dude.
I’ll just sign off with all our favourite Jason-Todd-the-not-Bad-Robin panel
