No sooner has Batman’s former sidekick, Jason Todd, put his past as the Red Hood behind him than he finds himself cornered by a pair of modern day outlaws: Green Arrow’s rejected sidekick Arsenal, the damaged soldier of fortune, and the alien Starfire, a former prisoner of intergalactic war who won’t be chained again. As a loner, Jason has absolutely no interest in this motley crew of outlaws. So what’s he going to do when they choose the Red Hood as their leader?

BONUS REVIEW by SHANNA BERRY

*some spoilers* Man! Talk about ACTION PACKED! This series kicks off with such energy; going in you can't help but get pumped! I'm so glad they saved Jason Todd from a disastrous fate, and teaming him up with Roy Harper was genius. This issue almost warrented a full 10 Grahams, but read on for why I cut that in half. Starfire. *sigh* This is a character harnessing immense power, capable of thwarting the most vicious of villains. We get a brief taste of it: she cleans up a mess of tanks at the request of Jason...though we don't get to see it. Starfire is also an alien who, clothing-wise, has always left little to the imagination. Yet, somehow we find new ways to eliminate even MORE clothing. Never thought that was possible. But I wouldn't mind...if it ended there. But this series rewrites Starfire as a Forgetful Slut. That's the basis of her character now. And I really do not enjoy it, I'm rather insulted. She doesn't remember anyone from the Teen Titans, because her race "doesn't care". She asks Roy to have sex as soon as Jason disappears, because sex means nothing to her. So now this once powerful, inspiring warrior is now belittled to a sex-crazed air-head. Well done DC. (i might add that yes, she has done the nasty in the pasty with Nightwing, a period of romance that I quite enjoyed. I'm not adverse to some love-makin, just don't turn our beloved characters into WHORES.) If they would have left Starfire completely out of this book, and out of the relaunch, I might retain respect for the creators. Starfire fans beware!
