Red Hood

The Red Hood has been worn by multiple DC characters. The Red Hood was first worn by the Joker and appeared in Detective Comics #168 (February 1951), in the story “The Man Behind The Red Hood!”. Another version is introduced in Batman: Under the Hood. Jason Todd, the former Robin, was killed by the Joker in Batman: A Death in the Family and is revealed to have been resurrected by Ra’s al Ghul. The resurrection changes him and he becomes the new Red Hood. As the Red Hood, he assumes control over various gangs in Gotham City and actively tries to cleanse the city of corruption.
