The Red Hood is one of four playable characters in Gotham Knights. However, he is the only one out of Batgirl, Night wing, and Robin who has somehow returned from the dead. Batman: Under the Red Hood has maintained prominence in Batman’s comics for a long time and has proven to be the most popular comics in DC’s advanced era. Jason Todd’s death propels Batman through an embarrassing acknowledgment, yet how the second Robin died has changed in some realms and never occurred in others. This questions how Jason’s fate would have been handled in the new Gotham Knights universe, as well as what his death might indicate for the game’s overall plot. As criminals such as Mister Freeze take advantage of Batman’s absence, the four legends will be put to the ultimate test by the mysterious Court of Owls. The Court of Owls, which was once thought to be a mythology, is a group of Gotham City’s wealthiest citizens that try to govern the city by financial and political methods. Jason Todd, also known as Red Hood in Gotham Knights, Batman: Arkham, and the comics, is the most well-known Batman mythos, having broken the Dark Knight’s no-kill rule in battle. Jason Todd is destroyed by Joker in a stockroom bomb while attempting to protect his mother in several coherencies. The person usually dies but is resurrected by divine intervention or a Lazarus Pit. Regardless, Gotham Knights appear to be planning a twist on Red Hood’s origin tale by keeping the weapon-wielding vigilante in the dark about his restoration, keeping a crucial aspect of the person’s backstory hidden. Given the multiple DC universes and Batman comics, there are some prominent theories about Red Hood’s end and perplexing resurrection.
Gotham Knights’ Court of Owls Could Resurrected Jason Todd
The Court of Owls appears to play an essential role in the main tale of Gotham Knights, but who knows what devastation they caused before the game started? If the Court of Owls were involved in Batman’s death, it’s reasonable to assume they assassinated another Gotham saint before killing the Dark Knight. One of the ways used by the Court to prepare their Talons to wipe out Batman might be killing one of Batman’s Robins and then secretly resuscitating them. Various trailers have confirmed that the Court of Owls of the Gotham Knights may expand resurrection for their Talons, as evidenced by the limitless cryostasis rooms within their haven. The Talons hidden inside these units can range in age from many years to human generation, and their recuperation abilities inside the funnies are incredible. With this innovation, Jason Todd’s resurgence could be responsible on the Court of Owls.
Even though the Court of Owls of the Gotham Knights uses suspended movement for their Talons, the association as a whole suffers from a faulty framework. The Talons battle this ‘function’ in comedies and films all the time, but they can’t seem to get away from it. The most frequent method of becoming a Talon instils increased strength, speed, and healing in the up-and-comer. Unfortunately, obtaining these powers from the Court of Owls results in the loss of essential mental guts and the ability to think freely. For example, suppose the Court of Owls resurrected Red Hood to assassinate Batman or gather information about him. In that case, it’s unlikely that the heinous nemesis could recover his memories without any help.
Gotham Knights’ League of Assassins Could Have a Lazarus Pit
Even though WB Games has released a few clips for the Gotham Knights plot, its website contains a wealth of information on potential ongoing interactions and foes. Players can currently collect information on the Court of Owls, but four other ‘groups’ are locked and do not have access to trailers or unique materials. One of these factions could be the League of Assassins, which could have a role in Red Hood’s past. The League of Assassins initially prepared Bruce Wayne for his journey to becoming Batman, but he quickly withdrew their guidance after discovering their lethal nature. Although Batman has repeatedly thrown the League of Assassins out of Gotham, the Assassins’ hold on the Dark Knight and his city has not waned. Ra’s Al Ghul operated the Lazarus Pit to revive and prepare Jason Todd as a new warrior after the Joker killed him during his Robin days. Unfortunately, the repairing capabilities of the Lazarus Pit come at a terrible cost to the psyche, resulting in Red Hood’s amnesia. If the League of Assassins is one of the Gotham Knights’ five organizations and is responsible for Red Hood’s restoration, it’s unclear why they would bring back Red Hood’s sidekick. Red Hood’s rage at Batman and the Bat-Family resulted in a turf war in Gotham City between a slew of scumbags in some coherencies. Red Hood served as an unconscious expert for the League of Assassins as hoodlums died and confidence in Batman’s ability to secure the city faded. Red Hood might serve as a sleeper specialist for the League of Assassins in the game if the Gotham Knights continue down this path.
Although the League has yet to appear in any limited-edition materials, their presence in the Batman: Arkham games with Talia al Ghul and her sister suggests they may appear in Gotham Knights.
Gotham Knights’ Red Hood Could Be Brainwashed
While Red Hood is guaranteed to have died, the amnesia surrounding his restoration in Gotham Knights could have been caused by one of Batman’s innumerable knights. Special characters can suffer real mental trauma, which has previously erased the Dark Knight’s memory. Batman has adopted a few different inner identities during amnesiac moments, and his adopted child may suffer from similar ailments. The Mad Hatter, also known as Jervis Tetch, has a history of altering the memories and perceptions of his victims. If a knight wanted to torture Red Hood and replace his memories with a false death, Mad Hatter would be an excellent choice. While Jason Todd has no recollection of how he returned to life in Gotham Knights, it’s possible he didn’t die and was subjected to programming as the Mad Hatter. However, the Mad Hatter frequently joins forces with other lowlifes to attack Batman, implying he isn’t the sole scumbag responsible for Jason Todd’s alleged amnesia. Batman’s most infamous foe, the Joker, is absent from the Gotham Knights promos. While some argue that the Joker should not be included in a game without Batman, his quality is a mainstay of many Gotham-based projects. Most of Red Hood’s origin stories begin with the Joker assassinating the previous Robin to undermine Batman’s resolve. If the Gotham Knights want to spare Jason Todd from death (as in Batman: Arkham Knight), it’s possible that Joker and Mad Hatter worked together to torture and condition Batman’s next Robin. Jason Todd’s last credible recollections would have included the Joker’s anguish, leading to the reasonable conclusion that he had died and been resurrected. In any event, Jason Todd’s rage at Batman for failing to save him and his disgust with Joker’s perseverance would have motivated him to become the Red Hood, resulting in the list seen in Gotham Knights.
While it’s unclear how much unique content is allocated to each playable character in Gotham Knights, Red Hood’s story is particularly compelling and provides opportunities for further character development. Although the Batman: Arkham series handled Red Hood differently than Gotham Knights, the two manifestations had a lot of similarities. Regrettably, WB Games cannot provide additional ongoing interaction trailers or information regarding in-game Gotham Knights nuances. The site has not received any updates since DC Fandom.
