When was the last time each of the Gotham Rogues cried?
Harley Quinn: Two weeks ago. She saw one of those ASPCA commercials while watching Doctor Phil with Ivy and cried about the sad puppies for an hour and a half
Poison Ivy: Three months ago this coming Sunday. She was terrorizing Gotham (as you do) when some little boy told her that Mushrooms didn’t count as plants and they got into an argument.
Catwoman: The last time she got arrested. She figured that some crocodile tears might help her escape- unsurprisingly, it worked
Joker: has this man,, ever seen, or shed,,,,,, a Tear of His Own?
Riddler: Last night. He was getting caught up on Ghost Adventures at 1 am when he saw a shake weight he bought months ago and realized that he was never gonna use it
Killer Croc: Also last night. Hes got feelings, and it’s not wrong to let them out, Karen!!
Penguin: Two months ago. He got shampoo in his real eye while in the shower and proceeded to sob for two hours
Scarecrow: twelve days ago. He got to his dentist appointment late and didn’t want people to assume that he was a human disaster but he didn’t know how to tell the secretary that he was there and just ended up throwing up in the bathroom before leaving
Mr. Freeze: he’s crying right now- what can I say he’s a loving and supportive Husband who just wants his beautiful Wife back,, dang it now I’m crying too
Two-Face: three days ago when he stubbed his toe. It hurt a lot but he had to stub the other one too or it wouldn’t be even and dammit now he’s got two stubbed toes!
Bane: Half a year ago. He doesn’t cry often but a certain local Gotham Drug Store will never forget the day they ran out of Bane’s favorite brand of Chocolate Protein Mix for the Muscles. They have not run out since.
Mad Hatter: Six hours ago. He read a nasty review online about the reboot Wonderland films
Red Hood: (Like I was gonna leave this emotional train wreck of a human being out of this) Last month. He occasionally goes to an old fashioned book club with some nice grandmas and their most recent read was The Warrior Cat spin off novel Crookedstar’s Promise
Playing with a personal timeline of the Batman Comics- might be helpful for you guys! :0 any comments/critiques is welcomed, this is sort of a hand picked mix of Preboot/new 52/rebirth. Mostly preboot history though.
1974- Bruce Wayne was Born 1983- Barbara Gordon was born 1984 1985 1986- Dick Grayson was born 1987- Helena Bertinelli was born
1990- Jason was born 1991 1992 1993- Cassandra Cain was born 1994- Stephanie Brown was born 1995- Tim was born. Harper Rowe is born 1996 1997 1998 1999- Dick Grayson becomes Robin; Tim sees the Graysons fall. 2000- Barbara Gordon becomes Batgirl. Duke Thomas was born. Dick creates/joins Teen Titans 2001- Cass kills her first person 2002- Damian Born. the “New Teen Titans” are created. 2003- Jason becomes robin. Dick becomes Nightwing. 2006- Babs is paralyzed. Jason dies. Helena becomes Huntress 2007- Tim becomes Robin. Steph becomes Spoiler 2008- Cass becomes Batgirl. Tim joins/creates Young Justice. Babs creates “Birds of Prey”. ( “No Man’s Land” ) event occurs. 2009- Tim joins Teen Titans. Jason comes back to life.
2010- Jason Todd returns to Gotham (”Under the Hood”) 2011- Steph is Robin, Steph dies. Tim’s dad is killed. Infinite Crisis 2012- Bruce dies, Dick becomes Batman. Tim leaves Robin. Damian becomes Robin. Cass is “Black Bat” . Steph becomes Batgirl 2013 - Bruce is resurrected Dick returns to Nightwing.
2012- Damian dies. Dick “dies” . Jason joins the Outlaws. Steph returns to Spoiler (Babs is fit enough to return to “Batgirl”). Harper Rowe becomes Blue Jay 2015- Damian is revived. Duke Thomas starts “We Are Robin” 2016- Tim is “killed”. Damian takes over TT . Duke Thomas becomes “Lark” 2017-current year.
Bruce Wayne: 43 Barbara Gordon: 34 Dick Grayson: 31 Helena Bertinelli: 30 Jason Todd: 23 Cassandra Cain: 24 Stephanie Brown: 23 Tim Drake: 22 Harper Rowe: 22 Duke Thomas: 17 Damian Wayne: 15
Notes to Clear Somethings Up: I know, currently, Damian is about 13, but I felt there needed to be more time in between events. Also, I aged up Tim “I’ve been 17 forever” Drake. Will update if we find out what happens to Tim soon… One could assume, since I currently have no events listed in 2017, that this version of the batman verse is still in 2016 (making Damian 14)
For sake of the time line, “One Year Later” after Infinite Crisis is actually only about 4-6 months.
not really sure how old Alfred Pennysworth is…let’s just say: immortal.
I know it could be controversial, but I have Dick starting Robin at 13 (allowing Tim Drake to see the Flying Graysons). In some continuities Dick is robin at 8 or 10; but I feel like making him 13 isn’t too big of a deal. Jason starts at 13 as well, he dies a little before he was 16. Tim starts at 12 Stephanie Brown is only robin for about 2-3 months Damian starts at 10
If you don't mind me asking, how many versions of Jason out there?
Oh there are so many versions of Jason out there, my dear anon :)
But I will introduce you to the most important versions of him in this post.
Pre-Crisis Jason (underappreciated gem):
“I’m Robin, and being Robin gives magic”
The First Jason, the one with acrobats parents who were killed by Killer Croc and then got adopted by Bruce Wayne. He was playful kid, kinda bratty, insecure and you can’t help but feel as proud as Bruce when you see him mature through the run. He had a better life than the other Jasons and better relationships. He also got the best Batdad ever (seriously, pre-crisis Bruce was the best batdad you will ever see).
If you guys ever wondered what Jason would be like without all these tragedies, then just read Pre-Crisis Jason’s stories and you will find out.
Dark knight Returns Miller’Jason:
“But The Joker is out there….there’s no telling what he’ll do”
The first one who started the “Jason has to die in every universe” circle and his death pushed Bruce to retirement. We unfortunately don’t know much about his parents or how did he meet Batman. He was extremely brutal (There would be no criminals left in Gotham if this Jason got the chance to grow up) and protective of Batman. He was also trained to be the next Batman, but unfortunately died before he could take the mantle.
Post-Crisis Jason (the one tumblr is in love with):
”Try and catch me, you big boob”
The one who died by a vote and then returned as Red Hood. He was a street kid with a criminal father and addicted mother. He met Batman when he tried to steal the batmobile’s tires and become Robin later. He was killed by The Joker after his real mother betrayed him (and stayed died for almost 20 years) and then return later after digging himself out of his grave.
“Father Todd, but you can call me Jason”
Ever wondered what would have become of Jason if he never meet Batman? Well, we got the answer in Flashpoint, a world where Bruce died instead of his parents. Jason ended up falling in with the Church of Blood run by Brother Blood. He mysteriously still died and resurrected and his hair bore a white streak suggesting that he was brought back by a Lazarus Pit. After his resurrection, Jason was taken in by the church where he turned his life around and became a priest.
What interesting (and sad) about this take is it proves that Jason would have been better off if he never meet Bruce. That Bruce actually doomed him.
New 52 Jason (another
“You can’t tell, but I’m shedding a single tear underneath this hood”
The one with harsher home life and better relationship with the Batfamily. Like PC Jason, his father was criminal and his mother was addicted. But unlike the other versions, Jason’s father was abusive toward him and his mother. He trained under Batman, LoA and All Caste (he’s seriously strong). Teamed up with Kori and Roy for awhile (and become one of the top ten most wanted criminal in the world), Started a company with Roy and now he’s teaming up with Artemis and Bizarro.
He is the current version that being used in the main DC universe and honestly? I’m pretty fond of him :)
“It’s personal, very personal”
The one who never died, but you will wish that he did (seriously, his life freaking sucks in this universe). Jason was kidnapped by the Joker and tortured both physically and mentally for a year. The Joker brainwashed Jason to hate Bruce and even get close enough to telling him Batman’s identity before Joker shot Jason and send the video to Batman making him think that Jason was dead. After The Joker died, Jason become Arkham Knight and worked with Scarecrow to takeover Gotham and break & kill Batman. He formed a militia and had Deathstroke as his right hand.
At the end of the game and after Bruce defeated Jason and stopped his army, Bruce was kidnapped by Scarecrow which resulted in a broken Jason saving him.
Honorable mention: Bombshells’ Jason
“If all the good people left Spain, then who would be left to fight for her?”
In this version, Jason was taken under Kate and Renee care. He was born during a war and refused to leave when everyone did to protect his country. He was described as cunning and clever who helped out Kate and Renee a lot. He died later in Kate’s arms which affected her and Renee deeply.
Yay, another long post and I’m tagging this because I was planning to do a post about different versions of Jason anyway.
Description: Roy gets a new girlfriend, a beautiful girl with the strength of Superman and a heart as bright as the sun. Everyone seems to notice, including Jason Todd, and… you.
Request(s): [I combined two requests!]
I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS MOMENT HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED. Can you pretty please do one with Jason where him and the s/o have a thing that goes on and off all the time (they used to date but you know… he died. So now it’s just easy that way). But when one of his friends start to date a girl who is pretty much mrs super good at everything she starts to get mad because she’s scared that jason may find a girl like that and forget about her? SORRY IT’S TOO LONG, I KNOW BUT THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR READING
And: Would you please write a fic when the reader is Diana Prince’s daughter? Just like super fluffy and cute
Words: 3414 (I have no idea how I wrote this so quickly??)
Notes: Yo I hope you guys both like this! I wanted there to be more fluff but I didn’t really know where to put it in lol.
“I missed you,” Jason says. You can’t help but smile a little giddily to yourself when he drops his duffel bag, so you try and settle it into something more peaceful and inviting instead of the pure excitement brewing in your stomach when he approaches. Jason wraps his arms around you in a hug that was clearly meant to be friendly, but his nose goes too deep into your neck and your arms knot too tight around him. He slips far enough out of your embrace to view your face. Jason smiles when he does, and it seems that, for once, he isn’t as good as covering his excitement or mutual attraction as you are.”You’re just as beautiful as I remembered.”
You try and fix this into your mind as the party continues. When Koriand’r had mentioned a Titans party, inviting old and new members, you had been elated to go. You hadn’t talked to Starfire since you left the team to tend to Themyscira in one of its times of crisis, and when you returned you found yourself mourning your boyfriend, Jason Todd, and replaced by Cassie Sandsmark as Wondergirl. But you adored Cassie—she was technically your younger sister, even if you were given life by Aphrodite and not Zeus—and still do now, so you held no grudges. As a princess of Themyscira and an Amazon, you weren’t raised to hold grudges. That’s why when Dick pulls your best friend Kori onto the dance floor, you smile and tell him to treat her well.
Jason would have been your second choice (or third, but you were unsure if M’Gann M’orzz and Karen Beecher would be present). This was only because of your previous relationship, and the new one that had been going on and off for years ever since his return. You can see him and yourself, freshly Titans and freshly heroes, leaning against one each other and the rooftop and overlooking San-Francisco.
Mekt Ranzz/Lightning Lord (Legion of Super-Heroes): As featured, he is, in fact, the definite poster-boy for the family black sheep and fuck-up sibling, but frankly, he if perfect and I will fight people on this.
La’gaan/Lagoon Boy (Young Justice): He is one of the most gloriously detailed dorks in the history of the show and DC Animated in general and I do not care what anyone else says. His facial detailing, omg~
Harley Quinn/Harleen Quinzel (BTAS/Assault on Arkham): One of the entire reasons I got into comics and the like; she is both simple and so complicated and I will defend her in most things…except her video game models made me mad.
Mercy Graves (Superman TAS/JLU): She is a model who can kick anyone’s ass and dropkicked Luthor where it hurts (his ego) in JLU; what is there not to love about her?
Razer (Green Lantern TAS): He has a configuration of rabbit similar ears for a helmet and is a weirdly affectionate person with no social skills.
Ghoul (Batman Beyond: RotJ): I don’t NEED a reason to think he’s pretty–he has a fake Christopher Walken accent.
Garth/Tempest (Young Justice): He got less then twenty minutes of screen time, but he is a dainty, precious angel and has a top-knot.
Jason Todd/Red Hood (Under the Red Hood/Young Justice): His entire figure is perfect, but it’s the fact that he has Jensen Eckles voice makes him even prettier.
Edward Nigma/The Riddler (THE Batman): He is a geek/goth/techie who wears eyeliner and has long black hair and might, possibly, wear heels. Also, he’s voiced by Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund.
Klarion the Witch-Boy (Young Justice): He is a snide, plotting, snotty, faux British Lord of Chaos with the voice of Lexington from Gargoyles. And he’s blue, so he is perfect.
Hey all, updating my master list, I love writing HOWEVER if no one comments writers die, we’re like tinker bell that way, just putting comments in tags, sending me an anon message about what you think, anything AT ALL is good enough, please I’m begging you!!! PLEASE PLEASEEEEEE comment idk what else to do to get people to comment
People who complain about Spider-Man being in the Civil War airport fight but have no problem with Batman and his habit of recruiting children with no super powers just as old, if not younger than Peter, into his crime fighting vendetta, please shut the fuck up.
Can we just talk about Tim in S2Ep8 of Young Justice when Jaime and Bart are talking down by the memorials. How Tim just stands there looking at Jasons hologram?
Cause I’m having major YoungJustice+Batfamily feels tonight. Look how timmy just stands there looking at him, (and this takes place a few episodes after dick told him “just dont die” right before a mission). This little puppy obviously looks up to his predecessor alot. Also can we talk about how Jason looks pretty late in his teens from this shot of his memorial we usually see around tumblr
But then if you look closely
Look how teeny tiny he is
I just really need more seasons of this show, preferably with a live and kicking jason todd
when i was a senior in high school a teacher had us do this very quick essay in class about a person in our life we admire and look up to and because i was tired i just started using jason as reference intending to replace his name afterwards with a very general “uncle bob”… ultimately i didn’t do it because of time constraints and it just suddenly hit me how hilarious it is that to that teacher i have an uncle jason who “despite his occassionally short temper, he’s showed me to never back down even when facing great struggles” when in reality i was referencing to jason todd trying to murder batman after he returned
Jason Todd - post Crisis, post resurrection issues in chronological order

Does not include: pre Crisis issues, New 52/Rebirth issues, pre-resurrection issues, although a lot of his post-res issues are flashbacks to his death.
