He is vengeance, he is a night, he is the Red-hooded killer.

Jason Todd, later known as Red Hood, is a major character in DC Comics, primarily appearing in the Batman series. He was the second person to take up the mantle of Robin, and served as Batman's sidekick until he was killed by the Joker in the 1988 storyline A Death in the Family. After being revived, he took up the Red Hood alias and began killing them to stop them for good, before later redeeming himself and becoming an ally of Batman again.

Bad Qualities

  1. He's supposed to be one of the heroes, but he's not very heroic on the job and has once been the second person to take the mantle of Robin after Dick Grayson, the first one, retired the Robin role and took on a new name, Nightwing.
  2. He tried to kill some of his own family members.
  3. Before becoming Red Hood, Jason was an overall poorly-written, but an unpopular character since he is often too cocky and reckless unlike Dick Grayson, the first original Robin.
  4. The backlash from fans led to DC to do a phone call poll campaign of whether Jason will die or not. So, death won.
  5. How he died was that Jason was searching for her mother and is an idiot when he realizes that she was working with the Joker and had beaten him and let him die in a warehouse.
  6. Anytime he communicates with the Bat-family, he acts out of character.
  7. He is rather bland depending on your view.
  8. When he came back from the dead, he goes completely Ax-Crazy as the Red Hood, and refuses to own up to his mistakes, or when he kills any innocent civilians and shows no remorse for it.

Good Qualities

  1. The reason he became this way is because the mother saw how he was being tortured, but sold him out to the Joker.
  2. He is much more likeable after recovering confronting Batman and kidnapping Joker for revenge at letting him die.
  3. The writers acknowledged the negative reception fans had about Jason Todd's Robin and allowed readers to vote if he should be killed or not. The readers decided and Jason was killed, which he would later be resurrected as Red Hood.
  4. Being more "brutal" compared to other members of the Bat-Family is good.
