It has been two whole seasons since titans first debuted in the small screens. Fighting Evil and Crime for so long, the time for the Titans to get an upgrade is long overdue. The DC FanDome Event had a lot for the small screen fans of DC Superheroes. Titans had an independent panel just for them-selves for the event. And they made some pretty amazing announcements.
The Titans Season 3 will have not one but three new faces for the superhero series. Barbara Gordon aka Oracle, Jason Todd aka Red Hood, and Doctor Jonathan Crane aka the Scarecrow, will be joining the fray. While the additions are much appreciated, it is the inclusion of Red Hood that excites us the most.

Jason Todd was once the Boy Wonder and Batman’s Sidekick. He was later kidnapped by the Joker and mercilessly beaten to death in the comic books. Jason later returned from the dead. No longer bound by Batman’s moral and ethical code, he began serving an extreme form of justice to the criminals of Gotham. Todd has no qualms about the use of fire-arms and has openly gone against Batman, even challenging his monopoly as Gotham’s Guardian Angel during the Red Hood and the Outlaws saga. Red Hood proved to be more than a thorn on Batman’s side before he changed sides and re-joined the Bat Family. He still has a penchant for violence though. Red Hood still uses guns and firearms in combat. With Batman’s training, he is a force to be reckoned with in the comic books.
In Titans, Curran Walters plays the character of Jason Todd in the show’s continuity. It looks like Walters’ character will be stepping up now. Jason Todd will be putting on the mask and targeting his own team-mates as part of an old grudge of some kind. Why will the Red Hood pick a fight with the mighty Titans? There is a story to tell here. And we believe it would be worth our while.

Maybe Red Hood could live up to the legacy left behind by Titan’s Deathstroke, played by Esai Morales. Apart from Red Hood, Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl will be coming to the Titans Universe. She used to be a romantic interest of Nightwing. Now she is Gotham City’s Police Commissioner and wants the Titans out of her curb.
Another interesting addition would be Doctor Jonathan Crane. Crane will be the imprisoned consultant that will guide the Gotham City Police Department on crimes and cases that are too dark for the authorities to dabble in. We would go out on a limb here and say Doctor Jonathan Crane and his fear toxin using alias Scarecrow has something to do with Jason Todd’s recent cry for revenge.
