Ed’s Winner for the Week: Jason Todd's death and resurrection - The murder of Robin and rise of the Red Hood are two comic book storylines I have always enjoyed but never thought I would see told in live-action. While they are being compressed and told back-to-back instead of years apart, their impact remains intact. I only wish we could see more of Batman dealing with it instead of Nightwing. Then again, the show is called Titans.
