Much like the death of Gwen Stacy had nearly as deep an impact on Spider-Man’s motivation, so too does the second Robin Jason Todd’s death has on Batman. While Jack bounced around like a pinball for a few years – Challengers of the Unknown for DC, an ill-fated science fiction strip called Sky Masters (which ended in a payment dispute and a lost lawsuit for Jack), The Fly and Private Strong for Archie (with old cohort Joe) – but eventually wound back up on Stan’s doorstep after burning his last bridge at DC.
