Batman Death Of A Family CH 2 The Death Of Jason Todd

Pg 4

The tape keeps rolling as he hits you again and again, laughing his ass off as he does it. Two men in leather jackets just look on, not amused by his antics at all. One even yawns, hoping he’ll get this over with already

pg 3

“ Look at you now, ain’t so tough now, hehahahahah!” The Joker takes a second to breathe, soak in this moment that he’s apart of. I wish I could  leap back to that memory and tear him apart, limb from limb. “ What’s your name?” He walks to your side, caressing your face.

It broke my heart to hear you cry as you spoke. “ Robin, my name is Robin.” I always taught you to be brutal, tough, cold. But seeing you then, I knew I couldn’t force you to be something you weren’t. You were just a boy, you were seventeen.

“ No, no, no.” The Joker just shook his head, before he pounded his fist to your skull three times. “ Not your stupid hero name, your birth name, idiot!” He even had the balls to slap you in the back of the head. I never wanted to kill anyone more than I did right now.

“ Jason, my name is Jason Todd.” He even forced you to tell your whole life story, how you were just a homeless kid on the streets, making you think, you and him were sharing a bond at that moment. He even fed you false hope that you would live, only if you gave up being Robin. You gave in and you even thanked him. “ Thank you, I swear to God, I’ll stop this, I won’t be a hero again.”

pg 6

“ That’s what I wanted to hear.” He says with a big grin on his face before his two thugs walk into view with machetes, tossing him one as well.

“ Wait, wait, you said you would let me go!” I closed my eyes at this point, I could hear you sobbing for mercy.

“ I never said such a thing,” God damn it Joker, what you made this cruel? “Alright boys, pick a spot and hack this little piggy down, HEHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!” Next is just the God awful screams as you die, it goes on for minutes, till you stop, but the sound of them chopping your meat doesn’t end for another ten more minutes. “ Well Batman, I’m going to go make me a Robin Sandwich, going to get some of his rump, that’s where all the meat is, HEHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!”


Batman: A Death In The Family CH 1 This Is Not A Dream

Pg 1

I never knew why you went out there that night. Maybe you couldn’t find solace in a quiet night. Maybe you couldn’t feel at ease without having a taste for violence. Is that what I was teaching you all this time?

I remember the tape he left behind for us all to see. A final taunt, show the whole world what a Joke I was. Show them that I was much worst than the monster I claimed to lock behind the walls of Arkham Asylum.

pg 3

“ Testing, testing, are you sure they can see me?” How he giggled under his words. “Ello ello, Gotham. Bet you didn’t think you would hear from me again, HAHAHAHEHOHA.” He almost topples off screen laughing. “ When are you people going to realize, you can never get rid of me.” The Joker was behind Arkham after I stopped him a year ago, Jason had been there. The Joker was connected with a prostitute ring that was being controlled by Roman Sionis ( Black Mask ) Joker was falling on hard times, he needed the money, everyone he knew was getting tired of his crazy plans. Even the cult that sprung out in his first appearance in Gotham had ran the moment he stopped being a trend. Now he was just becoming another throne that no one even cared to listen to.

After we broke up the prostitute ring, Ramon Silos was sent to black gate to serve a life time sentence. The Joker was sent back to Arkham, defeated and broken, he was becoming the butt of the joke among his peers, till now.

A moment later he steps in front of the camera, everything goes black, all you hear is the rustling of chains, someone lifting something up, in a second it makes sense. “Are you ready to see what good old Joker has in store for you?”

Pg 4

He steps back and there you are Jason, dangling like a piece of meat, your masked peeled off, your face a beaten mess. “HEHEHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, this is not a fake, I assure you, what you see before you is the little red robin that hangs with that nasty little demon you like to call a hero.” He hocks spit at you. “ How’s it feel boy, to be looking upon your judge, jury and executioner?”

I can see how scared you are, praying deep inside your soul this isn’t happening. How I wish it wasn’t. But it is, it’s all happening. Jason, why did you leave that night?

pg 1

This city still needs me. It doesn’t care if I can’t handle the weight, they just want to know their demon is lurking out there to make things right. I don’t want to go back out there, knowing what happened to you. It was all my fault, if I kept you away, If I had been more careful you would still be here. Instead I put you in danger, sent you to die. Everyone says it wasn’t my fault, I couldn’t have known. But I did, I did.

It all started with Dick, I should of sent him away, find him a better place for him to live, my God he was just a boy. Instead I brought him into my war, turned him to a weapon. And when he couldn’t deal with the stress of it anymore, I threw him away. Laughed him out of the cave, told him he wasn’t fit to hold the mantel, just because the nights got harder for him to deal with. Now he’s God knows where, fighting his own war, because that’s all I taught him.

pg 2

You deserved a better life Jason. You both did. And now I have to carry that with me. I have to pay the price for my actions. I wish I could go back and change all this, make things right for you and Dick. I’m sorry.
