The Naked, Scarred Body Of Jason Todd in Task Force Z #1

Jason Todd has been what you might call through the wars. Beaten to death by the Joker, scarred with acid by the Joker, either put under the autopsy knife and brought back to life by a Lazarus Pit, or clawed his mistakenly dead body from a shallow grave, depending on your canon, finding himself resistant to pain and going through whatever experience he might need to to try and experience it again. It's not been a particularly easy life for this Robin. And now, leading a team of crack zombies made up of Bane, Mr Bloom, Man-Bat and the like we get to see just how close to the grave Jason Todd has come.

So we have a naked Jason Todd in the kind of pose more associated with Dick Grayson, with his back scars looking far worse than in other recent portrayals, such as The Three Jokers.

It's less a scarring, more a topographical map of his life. But as Mandy Gledhill beautifully sang, it's not about your scars, it's all about your heart.

God call Damian. But there may also be some doubt as to just who was engaged in prurient Jason Todd ogling as well…
