Jason Todd was a young man from Gotham City who was born to troubled parents and managed to survive to his teenagers. At this point, the Batman operated in the city and fought many criminals with his sidekick Robin. This was until Robin who was actually Dick Grayson decided to depart on his own to begin a career as a solo crime fighter where he adopted the name Nightwing. In the aftermath, Batman encountered Jason Todd and took the boy under his wing where he became the new Robin. During one of their adventures, Todd was captured by the Joker who sent a video of the kidnapped Robin to Batman that seemingly showed his murder at the hands of the supervillain. However, the events of the video were staged and in reality Todd as still alive but was trapped with the Joker. For a long length of time, the Joker kept Jason alive and tortured him whilst the boy was believed dead by Batman.
