Hello- I need help on information

This is the Black Cat, you know the nut that does the Batman and Sons webcomic. :)

I need some help on some information concerning Jason Todd's stepmother, Catherine Todd. I have a person who posted on my Deviantart account that she was a drug addict. I searched through my collection but found nothing referring to this. All I know is she died of an illness.

Does anyone know if this is true?

I will appreciate the help. :)

Thank you, and also, I want to thank you all for the great support you have given me for the webcomic.

Have a great day!


And image... I hope I did everything right.

Welcome to the community. Big fan of your work.

Anyways, I'm not the biggest Jason Todd buff, but this is the first I've heard of such a thing. I also heard she just died of an illness. Unless this is something that's come post Death in the family.

I've heard both versions of her death, though I can't link to scans for either one, I'm afraid. I've also seen a version where it was a combination of both (I believe she became ill, presumably with HIV/AIDs, through a contaminated needle, and died as a result of that), but that was in fanon.

Regardless, I don't believe there's definitive canon that would make it either, so it's up to your discretion, I suppose.

Hi! Just want to say: You ain't nothin' but a real cool breeze!

Yep in Batman issue 409, she dies from a OD.


But in Batman issue 426, she dies from an illness.

Glad superfan could provide the actual scans--I knew I'd heard both illness and drug addict but couldn't be sure where.

But I have to ask--whose yellow boot is that kicking Kid Flash?

Oh and as for "I hope I did everything right", I think I speak for all of us when I say that THAT is putting it mildly! :D

Re: the scan: That's one of my favorite TT:Y1 moments, if only for Aqualad and Kid Flash's reactions to Batman. Aqualad's blush~ <333

Boy, they could do some major damage with those pointy knees of theirs...

I've been on a massive reread of Jason's stuff quite recently so I'm pretty sure on this one.

It's definitely implied that Jason's mother is an addict, though never explicitly said.

'Fraid I don't really know anything about Catherine Todd. Just wanted to pop in and say that I absolutely love your Batman and Sons webcomic. <3
