Jason Todd was a street orphan who was taken in by Batman, becoming the second Robin. Jason was kidnapped and taken to an abandoned wing of Arkham Asylum, where he was tortured by the Joker, who manipulated him into hating Batman over the course of a year. Joker faked Jason's death by sending a tape to Batman in which Robin was apparently shot and killed. He eventually escaped and began plotting his revenge on Batman for not saving and replacing him, taking on the name of the Arkham Knight.
Years later, Jason returned seeking revenge against the Batman, utilizing advanced technology and resources he acquired by unknown means, he was able to develop high-tech equipment & train a battalion of soldiers.
However, Batman finally managed to get through to Jason and Jason became the Red Hood and assisted Batman in taking down Scarecrow, shooting a gun away from the latter's hand as he prepared to kill Batman and then sniping the two pieces of metal that held Batman's hands down, giving him the ability to use Scarecrow's fear toxin against him.
Later, the Red Hood decided to bring down the Black Mask's criminal empire, interrogating Black Mask's henchmen on Sionis' location, before executing them. After defeating Black Mask in a fight, Jason kicked Sionis out of a window as he was begging for his life, killing him.
