Jason Todd, an orphan living on the streets of Gotham, first encountered the Batman after boldly stealing the tires of the Batmobile. Batman, who had recently parted with his ward Dick Grayson, the first Robin, took Jason under his wing. As the second Robin, Jason distinguished himself in battle with such adversaries as Two-Face (who had killed Jason's father), Fay Gunn and Killer Croc, and also joined the New Teen Titans for a brief time. Jason's short career met a tragic end while he was searching for his long-lost mother. Upon finding her, he learned that he was a criminal. She betrayed Jason to the Joker, who then killed them both.
Jason was seen as a ghost on a number of occasions, and had been reported to have found peace in Heaven. However, the effects of Superboy Prime attempting to escape from a supposed 'paradise' caused a ripple in reality, which awoke Jason Todd in his coffin brain damaged and with no memory of his true identity. He wandered for years until Ra's and Talia al Ghul took him in. Talia submerged him in a Lazarus Pit and reawakened his memories of his true self. When he learned that the Joker was still alive, despite his own murder, Jason was enraged and took on the identity of the Red Hood, a scourge of Gotham's underworld.
