There is a moment that has been marked in the memory of all fans of Batman and the DC comics, the one known as the second RobinJason Todd, who later returned as the Red Hood, had three final thoughts before Batman’s nemesis Joker killed him and it became one of the Dark Knight’s most painful moments.
You see, the boy taken in by Batman after stealing tires from the Batmobile, Jason Todd had the opportunity to reinvent himself as the second Wonder Boy, but the young hero’s new life would be cut short when the fans voted in favor of the joker murdered him, so after Robin’s death, Batman experienced an overwhelming sense of guilt and failure, causing the hero to become much more violent when fighting his enemies.
So later Jason Todd was revived by Thalia al Ghul using one of his father’s Lazarus Pits, which inspired him to become the Red Hood after learning that Batman never killed the Joker, and now that Jason’s memories surrounding his resurrection have been frequently explored, until what a comic Red Hood and the Outlaws #0the final moments of the second Robin were a mystery.
But, in this issue, Jason states that his three thoughts before his death were all directed at Batman and included: “Bye”, “Thank you” Y “I am sorry”As this harrowing glimpse into the last moments of his death indicates he had an idea of the impact his death would have on Batman, so while he goes to great lengths to hide it, the Red Hood often shows he cares in heartbreaking ways. .
And reveals how I wish I had told BruceWayne before dying those words: first “Goodbye”, but unfortunately, a major aspect of Batman’s guilt is that by the time he arrived to save Robin, the Joker’s bomb had already detonated and Jason Todd was dead, so Bruce never had a chance to say goodbye to her son, which could have provided her with some much-needed closure.
So, Jason says that he wanted to say to Batman, “Thank you”, before he was caught stealing tires, Jason had no family and had to fend for himself in Crime Alleybut guilt may have made Bruce regret letting Jason be Robin, but there was a time when being the Boy Wonder was the best thing that ever happened to him.
Allowing Jason to thank Bruce before he died might have reminded Batman of this, avoiding one of his biggest regrets, and lastly, he wishes he’d said “I’m sorry” to him, for even though Batman’s opinion of the Robins can be controversial , the hero cares about his cronies and feels responsible when they are hurt.
As a result, Bruce blames himself for Robin’s death even though Jason’s final thoughts suggest he shouldn’t, and Jason, wishing he could apologize, shows that he doesn’t blame Bruce and takes responsibility for his own death, and if Batman had been told this, his guilt might not have been so overwhelming.
