    It helps it a lot that thanks to the reuse of assets from the Rebirth versions, the most blatant Robin elements in the design were removed.

    YES, precisely, forgot to say so. I love the design in the book as is, but getting rid of the most obvious Robin imagery does wonders, him no longer looking like a boy scout (I don't really love how he looks in Get Joker because of that and the lack of helmet).

    He feels kind of like the wolverine of the team, don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

    There’s no rest for the wicked! Especially if you’re Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot. He thought the mission that killed him would be his last, but now he’s been recruited into Task Force Z. But Deadshot’s never liked playing by anyone’s rules...and Red Hood and his would-be team are going to learn that the hard way!
    Future State has been somewhat uneventful but at least consistent, and hey at least it's a series that so far had done right by Jason. This new Joker character has a neat design, and seeing as though Jason will (surprisingly) still be the MC for a little while longer, hopefully this new Joker plot will be able to inject a little more intrigue into the series. The weird Viking villain hasn't been as engaging for me.

    And Floyd is joining the Task Force? Neat, that's exactly what I had been asking for a couple months back, he's definately a character that earned his second (third, fourth, fifth....) chance, especially after how the last Suicide Squad ended for him.

    For sure, even just removing that lame Robin belt did wonders for the figures appearance.

    I've been waiting for this episode to release. Between the A+ meme usage, Bruces tired dad shtick, and Jason still being the cheeky thief, brazen enough to steal from Batman, it's a gem.

    Speaking of the Webtoon, apparently there was a recent casting call to voice Jason for the upcoming official dub of the Webtoon comic and Alejandro Saab was chosen for the role.

    Here's his announcement tweet and a sample of his voice for Jason.

    From the artist behind Nightwing's upcoming annual (which will feature Jason afaik):
    @CianTormey

    Obviously we've got a lot to draw, but.. Armour sketches are research, right?
    Oh man am I in love with Jason's new look...

    Quite like it here. Maybe because it's not as bulky and toy-like as in other renditions and because of this sketch's (lack of) colour: red and white/light gray suits him really well and makes the armour stand out on its own, no longer being a lesser version of Soy's design.

    Regardless, I also liked it in Road to TSZ, so I'm fine with the new design. He just needs a jacket or a coat as a permanent addition.

    Red Hood character fragments is on sale on DC Legends for 6K in-game gold for 3 days. These ^&**$ know I don't have that much and I won't be able to earn 6K gold in 3 days.

    Anytime I read "Armor" in relation with Jason I like the design less. Jason shouldn't use armor, or any bat for that matter, they're supposed to be nimble and acrobatic, full body armor goes against that.

    I guess there's a certain temptation to do that with Jason, as he's usually portrayed as the biggest Robin. Then again, look at Batman and what he wears... I hope the bulky look only stays there for the duration of TFZ, as I also prefer a more streamlined, form-fitting look. During Rebirth he essentially looked like Gray Fox with a jacket and it was great.

    Even when Bruce is sporting an armored look (like in the N52), the armor was still form-fitting and didn't look like it impeded his moves in any way. Jason's current armor is being explicitly drawn as bulky, and that is the problem.

    Personally, I believe there are three big design elements any costume for Jason should include: the red helmet (motorcycle/Iron man type, not pill-shaped), a leather jacket/sleeveless hoodie, the full getup should look more casual compared to usual superhero fare.

    Small article about Bruce's roles as a son and as a father. On one hand, the only sons the article goes into (relative) detail, are Dick, Jason, and Damian. On the other, it keeps hammering the "Jason was Bruce's biggest mistake" narrative.
