Only for this run!
After 3 months of adventures (3 years if you were reading these books in the 80s!), Jason Todd of the Renegade Robins Club says goodbye to the 1980s run of Doug Moench. But fret not: Earth-One goes out with a bang as the entire rogues gallery comes out to play!

The Damian Wayne wing of the Renegade Robins is still looking at Batman & Son. Check it out if you haven’t already!
The Dick Grayson Fan Club has just launched with its first week! Help support our feathered brethren!
Jay is also helping out over at World of Bats. Can the Bat-Family survive the Night of the Owls?
If you squint, you may spot Jason Todd in Last Days of the Justice Society of America, a coda to Crisis on Infinite Earths. Similar cameo appearances occur in subsequent references to COIE from here on out.
Jason doesn’t appear in The Dark Knight Returns #1, but he does get a solemn mention.
Two-Face first appeared in Detective Comics #66 (as Harvey Kent, later renamed Dent). His most recent appearance was as part of the ensemble of rogues in a story from our very first session, Detective Comics #526.
So many villains appear in Batman #400! Black Spider is from Detective Comics #463-464. The Cavalier is from Detective Comics #81. Dagger is from Batman #343. Killer Moth is from Batman #63. Ra’s Al Ghul is from Batman #232. The other (non-cameo) villains in this comic have been covered in previous sessions.
Many of the foes from previous weeks have returned, Jay!
