Additional Information
After Dick left to become Nightwing, he was replaced in his role as Robin by a tough little kid who lived on the streets. The first time Batman meets Jason Todd, he is trying to steal the tyres off the Batmobile. His mother had left and his father had been killed by Two-Face. Jason proved to be a rebellious, angry Robin. He jumped the gun, disobeyed orders and even let a man fall to his death. Whilst on a quest to find his mother, he was killed by the Joker, who beat him to death with a crowbar.
The death of Jason drove Batman over the edge and it was only the intervention of Superman that prevented Bruce from killing the Joker. A memorial was errected in the cave and his death cast a shadow over the lives of Batman's allies for years.
It later transpired that Ra's and Talia al Ghul had resurrected Jason using a Lazarus Pit, but kept it a secret from Batman because it had seemingly brought him back with mental impairments. Slowly his physical memory came back and when was trained to fight to a better standard than he had previously been capable. His mental faculties returned when he was forced into the Lazarus Pit a second time and subsequently escaped. Upon returning to civilisation he was soon able to learn that Joker was still alive and that he had been replaced as Robin. His mind was fragile from the trauma of the Pit and he began making the wrong choices. Setting himself up as the Red Hood, he launched a campaign of blood against Joker, Batman and the criminals of Gotham; killing them whenever possible as his own solution to Batman's War of Crime.

Possible role in Arkham 3
1 - as Robin, killed by the Joker in a Scarecrow induced hallucination.
2 - as the Red Hood; with the Joker dead, Jason believes that Bruce has finally taken revenge for his death and forgives him for letting him die, giving up his vendetta against Batman. Returning to Gotham, he follows Batman in order to reintroduce himself when he is attacked by agents of the Order of St Dumas. As Jason no longer holds to Batman's moral stand points, he kills his attackers. This display of brutality get him an inroad with Black Mask's gang. Jason joins up, intending to bring them down from the inside and prove to Batman that he is ready to return to service.

Essential reading
Batman: A Death in the Family, Batman: Under the Hood, Teen Titans (Volume 3) #29, Nightwing: Brothers in Blood, Red Hood: The Lost Days, Robin: Search for a Hero, Battle for the Cowl, Batman & Robin: Batman Reborn, Red Hood and the Outlaws.

I don't believe I've never thought about it this way until you said it, it's so obvious. It'll be interesting if they do include Jason because with this in mind they can tell a completelt original tale with Red Hood and Batman.

Red Hood one of the best Batman characters ever (in my opinion). If RS uses him, I hope they do it right.

Attributes: after his resurrection he was trained to be an assassin by ancient monks of All-Caste

Chances of appearing in Arkham 3 - 4/10: as much as I would LOVE to see an Arkhamverse interpretation of Jason, there kinda isn't much plot space to put him in. Maybe as one of Scarecrow's nightmare and after that a full-on fight with present day version of him(once again, reason?)

I have hopes. Not extremely high ones, but hopes. I'd say 5.5-6/10. It would be great to have him working with Hush.

Or he could be mad at batman for cheating out of his revenge, and try to kill him.

I disagree, the best possible role would be a villain, let him become our friend next game if they want to do that.

I'd love to see his death in some sort of flashback scene; as grim as it sounds, it would be a very interesting scene to watch and I'm sure Rocksteady would do it justice. I think his appearance as the Red Hood is more likely though; never actually thought of your idea R_R, it's an intriguing concept.

Finally. I've been waiting for this one!! As you can tell by my name, i love The Red Hood. He is a great character and i'm really hoping he makes at the least an appearance in A3! I hope he would be a playable character though. Either way it would be great to see The Red Hood!
