Red Hood? Jason Todd should have been codenamed the Red Herring in 2015’s Batman: Arkham Knight, as his identity was a tad too obvious in the build-up to that game. That was probably done on purpose however, as developer Rocksteady played a perfect game of misdirection so that the true menace of Gotham City could finally be revealed in a twist that nobody saw coming. I won’t mention him here, because apparently you need at least four years after a video game has released so that the statue of spoilers can be chucked out.
ANYWAY! While the reveal of Jason Todd took nobody by surprise, his actual role in the story was great stuff. Filled with nods to his comic book history, Todd menaced players for most of the game as the titular Arkham Knight, before eventually adopting his Red Hood persona. Rocksteady’s reimagining of the character was fantastic: A military-outfitted operative whose entire appearance was designed to mock and antagonise the Batman.
Sleek and tactical, it’s the kind of outfit that would work surprisingly well in the real world. If you happen to be a fan of the game and have a pre-order in for the upcoming Hot Toys version of Bruce Wayne’s world of fisticuffs and high tech armour then here’s some good news for you: Hot Toys has an Arkham Knight to go with your sophisticated Dark Knight.
