Red Hood The original Red Hood was a scheme by some hoodlums so they could rob banks for money. A desperate man who was in need of money for his family decided to join these guys and help them rob a chemical plant. While robbing the chemical plant Batman stopped the man and while trying to escape fell into a chemical vat horribly scarring him and turning his hair green and his face white. This man later became the criminal mastermind know as The Joker. The Red Hood has been resurfaced several times by Batman's old sidekick and the old Robin. Jason Todd became The Red Hood after he was killed by the Joker. While he was buried a man by the name of Ra's al Ghul.
