Nightwing Goes Off The RAILS | Tentatodd Jason Todd Is A Tentacle Monster

Like What I Do Support The Channel On Kofi

Jason Todd was once a tentacle monster. This storyline was a brief moment in mid aughts Nightwing following Infinite Crisis. Brothers in Blood was a story from the One Year Later event where each comic jumped forward a year in time. DC Comics had been flirting with the idea of killing off Dick Grayson, but not the role of Nightwing. While that ultimately did not happen it did lead to a world of two Nightwings, and a tentacle monster. Many remember the second Robin for his return to life as Red Hood but some also remember this moment. Find out how it all came about here on Casually Comics!

    I'm not going to pretend I've researched this opinion, but I wish Jason Todd as a character had…a character. An agreed-upon set of traits that makes it feel like you can tell whether the way he acts in a specific storyline is in-character or not. I'm not claiming to know the perfect characterization of Jason, but that's kinda my point. It seems like there are some writers who have a firm and complex sense of who they think Jason is and then other writers just go "idk he's angry, violent, and died before, so slot him into whatever needs craziness and killing", especially considering how often his character is brought 'back to basics'. I'd argue his character seems more consistent across the extremely broad range of fanfiction writers than it is among the DC-appointed writers of comics involving him, which is wild. It's a shame. He would be really compelling if the default for writers without a clear vision for him wasn't just "lol killing and chaos go brrr".

    7:00 Jacob reminds me of the psychic from the Gruenwald run of Captain America, the one Zemo hired to find the Bloodstones to resurrect his father, and who Crossbones (Who had spied on this adventure) hired to find Red Skull after Magneto buried him alive.

    This is the worst comic storyline I ever read! I am a huge Dick/Barbara shipper and love the idea of Dick taking on the bat cowl. I realize Bruce Jones was told Jason Todd would again replace Dick Grayson. However, not able to tell Dick from Jason initially and hurts the story and Dick is not behaving like himself at all yet this is before the Ric Grayson excuse. Rumors abound of Dick being under the bat cowl One Year Later and potentially married to Barbara and yet we get this crap. Talk about setting up fans. Adding to the insult I hate Jason Todd.

    This was such a weird time in comics. The One Year Later Outsiders also read really weird because the Nightwing in that title was clearly supposed to be Jason, but they changed their minds last minute and just switched the names back so you had oddities like Dick as Nightwing threatening Superman with kryptonite.

    When I first read about I instantly thought of Tetsuo’s mutation into a giant blob at the end of Akira, thinking that was probably the main inspiration behind it.

    Does anyone else find it annoying that, despite clearly being in the same age group as or slightly older than Tim Drake (who debuted a year or so after his death), since being revived, Jason’s been portrayed as either in Dick and Barbara’s age ranges or slightly younger. Realistically, he should still be a teenager, but I guess Red Hood’s not very threatening as a teenage anti-hero.

  7. Astolfo Enjoyer

    Damn. Everything does come full circle. This is one of the first comics I ever read as a kid, and never was able to find it again. I still remember this like 15 years later. And I'm deep down the comics rabbit hole now lol.

    This just makes me think, "yeah, sharing a crime fighting persona every other night sounds way healthier!" Just another example of plot complications actually being good.

    Honestly the pre new 52 era for Jason is probably his most interesting. After UTRH they didnt really know what to do with him. So here's an era where they're doing anything and everything with him. From red hood and scatlet, to the green arrow appearances and now this.
    I get why a lot of this was retconned away with new 52 but still a neat bit of history for the character

    How old is Jason Todd when he's trying to woo Dick's current love interest? Don't they have about a five year age gap? Is Dick's love interest a cougar? I mean, he does date older women, but five years is a big deal when you've been dead/brain dead for… some of them… Maybe Jason is using his superior mass and Bat Disguise Skills to appear older than he is. I suppose this is hardly the most weird thing about this story.

  11. tomorrow4eva

    Wait, so he didn't just want to kill Nightwing, he wanted to put him in a refrigerator? Boo. They lack creativity if the only way they can solve Batman and Superman's relationship issues is to kill someone.

    I'm remembering that time Jean Grey had tentacle arms. Now I'm wondering if other comics characters randomly, temporarily, sprouted tentacles. Is this a secret comics trope!? 🤔

    You were talking about Jason’s place at the start. Imo I think he works as a villain pretty well in his initial “under the hood” arc but if he just stayed dead after that, I think that would have been better. Aside from being edgy and having trauma, he doesn’t really bring a lot to the table I feel. He works better as a permanent reminder of Batman’s failures.
