Red Hood and the Outlaws #8

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?

Bruce immediately ran out and got a shiny new Robin right after Jason died.

Except that's not quite how it was, Bruce actively resisted anyone working with him after Jason died, including even Dick. Tom had to pretty much force him into making him Robin.

I agree with you so much that I'm going to overlook that "Tom" bit. :P

You didn't hear about Tom? Robin 2.5? He...didn't work out.

It's not how it was, but it was how Jason perceived it to be (and it didn't help that Talia actively encouraged him in this interpretation).
