    As a casual DC fan (mostly just read the Flash, JL, YJ, and any mini's that start off strong), this feels a bit like...too little, too late?

    The post-CoIE continuity eliminated any direct connection between Dick causing the events resulting in Jason eventually becoming Robin II.

    Still even in post crisis Batman took Jason in a few weeks after he fired Dick, and afaik even in that timeline he was already Robin before crisis.

    Don't forget: Jason was blond and a member of the Flying Todds...a circus act! Killer Croc murdered Jason's parents.

    I miss those simpler times.

    That was pre-CoIE continuity. (And wasn't Jason actually a red-head for that?)


    When he was given a new origin post-CoIE, he now had dark hair.


    But I believe it was when Jason was resurrected in 2005, they also went back to his dark hair color being a dye-job to match Dick's as Robin.

    No Morrison brought that back in one issue of Batman and Robin much later.

    In Under the Red Hood, Lost Days, he is clearly shown to have natural black hair. And there is not a single panel were you ever see Jason having red hair as a street kid.

    Pre-Crisis he was a natural blonde that dyed his hair black
    Post Crisis he had natural dark hair
    In 2009 he dyed his hair red with a white streak for unknown reasons
    In 2012 his hair was made naturally black again

    Yeah, never liked the "dye-job" bit. Or him randomly having red hair pre-Flashpoint for awhile.

    Again, was it suppose to be blonde or red hair?

    Looks pretty blonde to me.

    I think it was Morrison that randomly tried to make him a red head near the end of Jason's pre-Flashpoint era.

    Looks orange to me.

    Shall we call it "strawberry blond"?

    I dunno, I have pre-Crisis Batman, Titans, Superman, Swamp Thing, JLA and Legion comics and there is definitely continuity in those.

    The messes pre-COIE seem pretty tame compared to some of the nightmares that came after.
    I agree, SP. I'll take pre-COIE continuity over DCU or New 52 continuity any day of the week. DC was easily at its most anal retentive about it during the Bronze Age.

    Was Vicki Vale a blonde?

    I'm with the Major. I always thought Jason was a redhead, too.

    Is this like those internet memes about what color the dress is or what color the sneakers are?
