Jason in 'Tec Comics
I've saved a lot of random bits of Jason adventures in 'Tec Comics over the last couple of years and upon reviewing them, there are some interesting points and foreshadowing, so after #571 was put up, I thought I'd put these up as well. Some of them are on the crisis cusp (just before, just after) so be aware of that. Let's start with what Jason's cape was used most often for:
# 568 It's interesting to see the emphasis is on the fight, not the victim. I always thought that was one of the main differences between Jason and Dick.
#569 This...what can I really say about this? It's got Papa Spank. Mostly, it's the banter between Jason and Bruce that borders on disturbing, considering the emphasis that's put on Jason's violent tendencies.
I admit, I put this one in the lulz.
This is one of my favourites, because it's repeated in reverse in Under the Hood with Jason cutting Bruce's belt. I love little echoes like that.
#569 It's also good to see that Jason and Selina aren't keen on one another, so at least something about their Battle for the Cowl fight was historically accurate. The look he's giving her here is downright vexed.
Again, there's an Underthe Hood echo here. As with My Beginning and My Probable End, Bruce is what Jason says when he wakes up rather than Batman.
I like this, because it shows Bruce is aware of some of the dangers here and he has a lot of confidence in what Jason can do.
I remember reading a Robin once which depicted Jason kicking the Joker in the crotch. I did get very amused when I saw this for that very reason.
Bruce is very out of control here. It's interesting to note that this is before The Killing Joke, so honestly I think it's an overeaction. I'm sure Jason ended up regreting this one, though.
#572 This is from a very special Detective Comics, where they head to London with Elongated Man and meet Sherlock Holmes. Honestly, it's worth reading just for that.
#579 Honestly, it's Jim Gordon I love here but it's good to see Jason's perceptiveness coming into play.
I will admit to being quite a big fan of Leslie, so I love how indignant she is here.
This was absolutely put in for amusement.
#580 There really aren't any words for this one, honestly. It dated horribly.
Has this been retconned? I thought up till I saw this it was still Two-Face that did it, as it's said in ADitF.
I liked seeing the journey and some resolution with the Two_Face story. I did always wonder why that had never come up as a sore point as it had before, so I was glad to see there was some addressing of it.
