Introducing Red Hood

Having reached the peak of human strength, Red Hood excels in both ranged attacks and melee combat. He can also harness mystical powers to give him an edge in battle.

Resurrection may have changed him, but one thing is still true, Gotham City needs Red Hood.

Despite his complicated past, Red Hood has reconciled with the Batman Family and is committed to using non-lethal combat methods to protect Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death.
