Jason Peter Todd is a fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.
Jason Todd first appeared in Batman #357 (1983) and became the second Robin, sidekick to the superhero Batman, when the previous Robin, Dick Grayson went on to star in The New Teen Titans under the moniker of Nightwing.Though initially popular, following a revamping of his origin by Max Allan Collins, the Jason Todd version of Robin was not well received by fans.For 1988's Batman: A Death in the Family storyline, DC Comics held a telephone poll to determine whether or not the character would die at the hands of the Joker, Batman's arch nemesis.The character was killed off by a vote of 5343–5271.Subsequent Batman stories dealt with Batman's guilt over not being able to prevent Jason's death.However, in 2005's story arc Under the Hood the character was resurrected, eventually becoming the second Red Hood and assuming a new role as an antihero who resembles Batman in many ways, except with a willingness to use lethal force and weapons.
