Didn’t they say a while ago that they weren’t changing a lot of the GA continuity? *pulls out hair* No no, they can’t get rid of Mia. Or Connor. They can’t. Noooooo. I can’t handle this in addition to…
This makes me very sad. I love Mia and Connor so much. D:
Recently Comicvine hosted Judd Winick on their podcast. You can listen to it here. Sara Lima (SL), Tony Guerrero (TG) and Corey the intern (C) interviewed Winick (JW). He also talked about his upcoming ongoings, Catwoman and Batwing. They took questions from readers and had some of their own. And they talked a LOT of Jason!
SL: How do you perceive Jason Todd’s relationships with each of the Batkids, from his perspective?
JW: Jason. Jason and his relationships. Starting at the bottom, the most recent, I think Jason kind of likes him (Damian).
TG: After he tried shooting him…
JW: Whatever. Jason is psychotic and a scoundrel and changes as the wind does. He’s a bit nuts, but I think what he likes about Damian is that he fights back, he’s an egotistical aristocrat, a 10-year-old man-child and I can’t imagine Jason doesn’t respect the talking back aspect of him, that he’s a little tough guy.
He hates Tim Drake more than any of them because Tim came after him. I never got to tell the Tim Drake-Jason Todd story and I probably won’t in this fashion. Or we’ll see. We’ll see. In my view, he hates Tim without even knowing him, without knowing anything about him or ever fighting him or being alongside him, he hates just the idea of him. He’s the one who came after him.
Dick, he also hates, but for entirely different reasons. That’s sort of like he’s (Dick) the good son. I think Jason feels superiority to Dick Grayson. It’s behind that Dick’s the goody-two-shoes. That’s an understatement of how he feels. He also understands that Dick Grayson’s never going to be Batman. That’s where the condescension comes in. You’re never going to be Batman, you don’t have that thing, that flaw in your character that makes Batman Batman. He’s like, I know I have that. He thinks he can do better than Batman. I think he looks down at Dick.
TG: I just want to go on record and say I don’t like the red hair/dying his hair thing. I remember Jason Todd stealing the Batmobile’s hubcaps or tires, he had black hair, he wasn’t dying his hair and the whole thing with Batman dying his hair — I don’t like it.
JW: Grant was doing this thing where he wanted to make all the continuity work and that was one of the facets of it. Come September, black hair again. So, don’t worry. I’ve gone out there, it’s black hair again. There’s a spoiler.
There’s LOTS more if you go under the cut, including Winick talking about Jason and Talia’s sex scene, Jason’s sexuality, the construction of the animated movie, Under the Red Hood, Jason’s mask fetish and where he’d like to see Jason in the future!
