Batman: Under the Red Hood

In the gripping narrative of Batman: Under the Red Hood, we’re compelled to question the impact Batman has on the young individuals he brings into the fold as Robins. Does his tutelage ultimately protect or endanger them? Could the Joker’s theory of “One Bad Day” be more catastrophic for one of the Robins than for Bruce himself? And where does justice end and vengeance begin? Paul and I explore these themes, taking cues from Batman: Under the Red Hood and Death in the Family Part I as our starting points for this complex discussion.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
