    The symbol is just not really different from Batman's, and there are at least two other Batfamily members, Batwoman and Batman Beyond, with a red Bat as symbol.

    In all seriousness, nah he's not. First off, Jason is not widely recognized enough to be labeled problematic. When do you ever see anybody walking around in a Red Hood shirt? If anyone can be compared to the Punisher in this regard, it's Batman himself. Whenever someone on social media wants to score easy brownie points, they bring up how he's a rich white man who beats up the poor and mentally-ill.

    Thanks. I already knew that. That's why I chose the most beat-up/grittiest version of Jason's insignia that I could possibly find (LOL):

    The problem is that his logo has been subverted (by the last people who should be using it) and that is a problem for branding if nothing else. It forced Marvel to shelve him for a while and now change his set up for the latest series.

    It's a real shame this has affected the comics, although the current run is pretty fun so far, but the people/movement who are the problem don't care as they weren't fans to begin with. Or they were and have taken some very poor lessons from him.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…
