It’s time I voice my anger on why Jason Todds’ death angers me so and why I take issue with DC and the fans.
kinda agree but not wholly. actually jason was a pretty popular robin. he had a lot of apperances in pre-crisis canon, (i know that’s not the *same* jason as the post-crisis one, and that was almost a perfect copy of dick) he was failry well written by Jim Starlin in his post-crisis run. he wasn’t really an ass. he was a nice kid when he wanted to be (especially in the first isusess after he became robin. yes he had issues, yes he was angry, but he had also a very strong sense of morality. and the poll happened mostly because there was a financial crisis at DC and Starlin very often said that he despised the sole idea of robin/sidekick. but yeah, the poll was stupid and killing off a 15 year old kid, even in fiction just because he had issues and wasn’t a perfect dick copy is somewhat cruel. giving him more character developement would be great, but i don’t think starlin wanted that. plus the blatant victim blaming that happened when jason might have pushed felpie off the balkony and only two/three (can’t remember??) issues later he himself dies.
*blows off steam.* anyway, it’s noce to see a guy saying that Jason is/was their favoite robin :D
