I post here...never. I don't think I've posted anything since I joined ages ago. I'm such a lurker. But I didn't see this scene posted yet, so I thought I'd do the honors. If I messed it up somehow, broke any rules, or missed these pages being posted somehow, please feel free to tell me and I'll do what I can to fix it. :)



Jason and co are in Gotham saving some kids at a hospital when Alfred sends out his distress signal, concerning the Night of the Owls stuff. Jason is about to leave when Roy points out that a lot of people are on the job already, but Tim picks up that Jason has intercepted their call. He asks Jason to stick around and help, and Kory -- Kori, whatever -- asks Jason if he knows Tim.

This lovely little flashback occurs.





I've wanted some nice brotherly love from Tim and Jason since he came back to life in 2005. I know a lot of people are put off by the reboot, but I think this made it worthwhile for me. (Although the idea of Alfred's cooking being anything but perfect is clearly absurd. :P And I don't like how Tim's being portrayed in Teen Titans... But that's a story for another day.)

Did anyone else love the idea of Tim and Jason being buds as much as I do?

That's actually pretty sweet.

"Like paste"....damn. And here I was always under the impression that Alfred is a kickass cook...

I've known some kickass cooks who had that one dish that should have been simple for them but that they never really managed to do even decently. Just their personal culinary blind spot, I guess.

It's a sweet moment I grant you. (Though speaking ill of Alfred's cooking? NO ONE has EVER spoken ill of Alfred's cooking, and for good reason.)

It was pretty much exactly what I feared. Extremely OOC, complete disregard of their previous relationship, killing attempts are just shrugged off and everything we get is pretty much a “Sorry, that I tried to kill you, bro.” over a shared breakfast.

Which in itself reads a lot like a bad fanfiction. Eating waffles together on a veranda? Really? Really?

“Hey, I tried to kill you and you actually hate what I represent, but I am cool with that. Lets be bros.”

“Oh, okay fine. I am sorry too that I tried to kill you, lets eat waffles.”

(I wish I would be joking but that is pretty much how it goes)

I was also extremely baffled by how their relationship was explained. Apparently, Tim assigned Jason to get him information about Cassie. But why he did that is not explained.

How did this happen? What made Tim consider asking Jason? How did he find Jason? Why did Jason agree to do this for him? Because he got information in return? But why did Tim not sort out any other of his actual allies first? Namely Barbara, whose past as Oracle is still intact in the reboot and who was the primary information broker of the Superhero community? Surely she could have helped him with his request? Why Jason?

I really couldn’t wrap my mind around that.

And no, I don’t hate the ship. On the contrary, they could have a really interesting dynamic and I do like the general idea of them getting over themselves and trying to be brothers. But the execution in RHatO #8 was just so poor. So blatantly OOC and illogical.

I will be in my corner, crying.

Kinda knew something like this was coming since Lobdell's on both title. I get that this is OOC, but clearly Lobdell's take on Jason is far less hostile than Winick's, so I guess there is some relaunch-shifting going on here and that this Jason was just estranged from the Bat-family since coming back, rather than blatantly antagonistic.

Eh, I'll allow it.

This is so out of character for both of them. Even with the reboot this feels so much like a bad fanfic where the writer hasn't read anything where the two character meet up.

How the heck did this relationship start? I mean even if major changes were made, it just seems so OOC. This is just horrible writing. It has it's good moments, but damn.

I mean why the heck just create some original characters instead of stripping away the essential traits and relationship dynamics that made characters the characters.

I'll be in my angry dome.

for me. all the things to get wiped out in the reboot im glad this was part of it. I love the new jason, he took the hints that other creators have used and made them more prevelant... they are still snarky to eachother. but they are family... they don't get along, but that does not mean they don't care. Jason always cared, which is why he was always so angry.

This. The Johns story was just unnecessarily ugly. I mean, granted, Tim takes Jase's role as Robin, that might irk him a little bit, but would he really go out of his way to try and antagonise and kill someone? It's a little too close to the way he got taken out, really - which is maybe the point - but I always thought his anger was better directed at Bruce and him alone.

Now, if this was the hypercompetant Tim we had from just before the reboot, he'd had drugged the pancakes so he could pack Jason back off to Arkham or Blackgate or where ever, like he did with Lady Shiva. 'Cause, you know, mass murderer and all. And he doesn't have the excuse of drugs like Cass did.

Evidently the severe beating that Jason gave Tim for "replacing" him over in Teen Titans and the outright attempt at MURDERING him via stabbing him in the chest with a batarang in Battle of the Cowl aren't canon anymore...

Not really the worst or least confusing of the mysterious erasures from Bat Continuity, despite the Editorial saying that it would remain intact like the Green Lantern comics.

At least it isn't just flat out confusing, like the butchering of the Black Mirror in the new Batgirl comics, or flat out insulting, like the removal of Steph and/or Cass' Batgirl tenures, who, by the way, have gone from "We have plans!" to "We have no plans for them, but we'd like to use them, but if we were it'd have to be in a big way and people above the creative process say they're off limits!".

At least that's what the mess of opinions of what the heck is going on with those two when questions were asked at Emerald City Con and C2E2.

I ... I'm glad Jason is in a better place, re: Tim and their relationship seems cute and all, but I have to say, I'm pretty bored with reboot!Jason's personality. He seems to have lost a lot of his (admittedly cracked-out) sense of humor, which, personally made him such an interesting character for me.

And up-thread, there's something about Red Hood: Lost Days not being canon anymore? Say it ain't so! Jason hasn't been so well-drawn since!


Okay, I have a thing for Lost Days!Jason.

I love this SO MUCH.

And I don't think it's OOC either. I mean, this is superhero comics we are talking about. Superheroes forgive terrible shit all the time, it's a classical trait of the genre. Whenever a villain even so much as hints at wanting to pull a Heel Face Turn, the hero will almost invariably give them a chance, no matter how many times the villain has tried to murder the hero and the hero's loved ones. Hell, no matter if the villain has tried to destroy the Universe!

And in this case in particular, the villain is the hero's brother to boot (plus, Alfred probably encouraged Tim to try and get the black sheep back). Why is it so hard to believe that, when Jason showed signs of regret for his past actions and a desire to be better, Tim decided to forgive him and be nice to him?

Thank you for posting this scene, [personal profile] aubreys_master. I was having a rough day and this heartwarming reconciliation really cheered me up :)

Yeah I find myself not minding this much. I think it could have been WRITTEN better, but I am not complaining that a huge chunk of what was in my opinion awful drivel is apparently not canon anymore. (In fact I wish the reboot had done more of this, cleaning up the questionable/stupid stuff instead of leaving it and erasing a lot of good things).

I've always thought that Jason would have been really hurt and angry over Tim "replacing" him but imo they took it way off the rails and ruined what could have been a potentially interesting chance for character growth for Jason. It's weird because this is almost like a scene I would have expected after the low-key, more character-driven, less-over-the-top-I'm-gonna-bathe-in-your-blood confrontation I was hoping for originally. Now it's easy for me to pretend it actually happened that way.

Also, given Lobdell's penchant for writing a Jason who has apparently "dealt with" most of his issues re: the Batfam, it's not OOC for HIS Jason. His Jason has let go of a lot of shit the old one was holding onto (for good or bad, I think it's a personal preference because I understand why people are frustrated and consider him OOC). So him letting go of his issues with Tim is not really surprising.

Didn't like so much: No, Tim, St. Patrick's Day was last month.
What does Jason have to do with Cassie other than providing random conversation filler?

I think that this is a side of Jason that alot of folks have been waiting to see, namely that he's finally coming to grips with his zombie brain. Aside from that, this isn't going to be the last time the DCnU throws stuff like this at the readers. if i were a fly on the wall during the planning sessions, I bet I would overhear something like this.

"Ok, this is what we want to be doing with these characters, and we want it hot. All within the first year hot!"

"But there's alot of deep history here, we can't just throw it out like you want."

"Yes you can, it's called Flashbacks. We'll fill in the blanks as we can think of good ideas to fill into them. In the meantime, who is it that signs your checks again?"

I'm of two minds about this.

On one hand, yeah, I love the idea of Jason's character being handled with a bit more of an even hand, instead of 'raging asshole'. I've always wanted to read more about Jason Todd but I keep getting put off.

On the OTHER hand, 'technically he's not your dad anymore'? REALLY? That's a bit harsh to say to anyone, much less to someone with legit daddy issues. I'm really he'd just let that slide without SOME reaction, even if it was more subtle than instant rage.
