At least, not the Jason Todd who was a friend and ally to Starfire and Arsenal. That man is gone, his memories wiped clean following a shattering confrontation with Batman and the Joker. Now, the man once called the Red Hood is looking for a fresh start.
But dark forces are looking for him.
The nameless entities of evil called the Untitled are massing their power, ready to plunge the world into darkness. Only one group stands in their way, an organization every bit as evil: The League of Assassins, criminal mastermind Ra's al Ghul's army of murderers and thieves.
But the League needs a leader — a leader resurrected in a Lazarus Pit and trained by the best killers alive. The League of Assassins needs Jason Todd. But so do Arsenal and Starfire. Will they be forced to destroy their friend in order to save him?
Bonds are tested, betrayals are revealed, and the battle of a lifetime begins in RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS: LEAGUE OF ASSASSINS (collecting RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #19-25 and Annual #1), from James Tynion IV, Julius Gopez, Al Barrionuevo, Ray McCarthy, Walden Wong and Jeremy Haun!
And that's a big mistake.
The terrorist mastermind called Ra's al Ghul, whose endless life has long been intertwined with the Red Hood's, is gunning for the power of a god. A secretive crimelord who built his enormous fortune by slaughtering wealthy families down to the last heir is preparing an ambush. And in the deeps of space, an indescribably deadly warlord is testing a weapon that could destroy all life on earth with a touch of a button. This madman — this Main Man — is known simply as Lobo.
But to Red Hood and the Outlaws, he's just the next challenge to take down…or die trying…
Writers James Tynion IV (BATMAN ETERNAL) and Will Pfeifer (TEEN TITANS) join a team of talented artists for RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS VOL. 5: THE BIG PICTURE—pitting the toughest team in the New 52 against their biggest foes to date! Collects issues #27-31 and DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #17-18.
An unknown predator begins outdoing Batman, taking down dangerous threats with military precision. It’s up to the Dark Knight and series costar Batwoman to rally and train the young heroes of Gotham City to end this mysterious threat!
WHAT NOW: Batman and Batwoman begin training Spoiler, Red Robin and Cassandra Cain, but is the villainous Clayface ready for redemption?
Batwoman, an accomplished crime-fighter who’s overcome the darkest of betrayals. Clayface, a reformed villain whose potential is eclipsed only by his astonishing powers. New heroes like Azrael, an avenging angel, and Batwing, whose incredible armor makes him a true dark knight. Led by the Batman himself, this team of guardians stands ready to protect Gotham City.
But the secrets of the team’s most mysterious member, Cassandra Cain, are about to come to light. And that light will cast a shadow darker than anything they’ve ever seen before.
They thought the League of Shadows was just a rumor—a secret society of nihilistic killers often whispered about but never seen. But now the League is here, in Gotham. They’re destroying Batman’s team one by one. And their sinister leader, Lady Shiva, has come to reclaim her daughter—or destroy her.
Can even Batman’s arch-enemy Ra’s al Ghul and his League of Assassins stop the onslaught? Or have the Shadows come to stay?
