    Default What if Jason didn't die?

    What do you guys imagine would have become of his life? Would he have led the Geoff Johns era of Teen Titans? Would he have adopted a new name eventually? Do you think he and Bruce would have stayed on good terms? So many possibilities. Has this particular concept been explored in the comics yet?

    Jason Todd? He is alive.

    His transition to be Red Hood will be based on how many times he almost died and/or how many people have died because of the Joker, and Tim won't be a Robin until after he left, which can range between when Jason almost died in Ethiopia to however many years later.

    Im more curious how Batman #429 would have played out.. .same issue only with Jason in hospital... or whatever... and eventually the revenge on Joker would have been one hell of an issue.... especially if Jason was involved.

    I doubt that Red Hood would be a thing for him and we probably wouldn't have gotten Tim Drake.

    The revenge/ Justice most likely will have wrapped up by the time Jason got out of Hospital. Bruce won't waste a second.

    Jason won't be a part of it [if Bruce has any say it ] Bruce will be extra careful, watchful and overbearingly protective once Jason is out of the hospital. It will take time before Bruce lets him out on the field.

    If I look how fast the writers had to introduce a new Robin, I think Jason would have been back as Robin pretty soon and Tim would have been not created. What else would have happend would have very likely dependent on how successful Jason would have been as Robin.

    Exactly right, Tim would not have been created...many other characters may not have been created too. Would we have Stephanie? I don't know.

    If Jason had gotten a new Robin costume and a new attitude (near death does that for people), then he would have been a new character.

    He probably would never have become Red Hood. We would probably have only 3 Robins (including Damian).

    Ironically, Jason shouldn't have died...according to the story that I heard. Also ironically, Barbara shouldn't have been paralyzed (because the author didn't think superheroes could be crippled and the story was not to be cannon - according to what I heard); we then would not have 3 Batgirls and Bat-Girl.

    Strange how small mistakes can compound and take on a life of their own, isn't it?

    Tim Drake was introduced less than a year later so he would not have been Created and maybe Anarchy too because he was originally planned to be Robin. Stephanie Brown would be a completely different character. If Jason had a significant upgrade in popularity he would have gotten a series and if not then Jason will be retired and Zero Hour would have retuned Dick Grayson to Robin at 18 instead of Nightwing. Nightwing would have been a Identity Known for the NTT and never applying to the Bat Books. Damian or any other Robin doesn’t get created as Dick would have finally received and updated costume. Barbara Gordon does become Oracle but DickBabs doesn’t become a thing

    I'm not sure if Steph would be that different, I think most of her stories would have also worked with Jason as Robin.


    DickBabs is mostly a thing due to the DCAU, it doesn't have anything to do with Jason or Tim beeing Robin.


    And interstin g question would how Damian would be like, since Jason would have been very likely still edgier than Tim, so Damian could have had a different personality to be more different from Jason.
