And i never said u couldn't say the same thing about Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne, and ect. U could, and people do. Many characters do overlap. I know they have different back stories, and different motivations, and that they are different characters, but that doesn't mean similarities are not there. And u could say that about tons of other characters, when i first said they were making Jason more like a less insane, pretty looking Deapool, i meant that they were making Jason into a more generic shoot um up type character. Characters like Deadpool, Grifter, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Punisher, Cable, and more. A character type that was big in the 90's. Not that all those characters are generic.

I won't be coming back here to find out anyway, because i really don't care about about current Batman events and continuity, i was just amused by the usual Bleeding Cool sensationalism.
I believe it's not as symbolic as we hope. The Joker was painting a chemical into Jason's mask that becomes acidic when it mixes with his sweat. You can see the acid bubbles on the right side of the helmet.
I did a quick crap color up to see how the two versions compare. I believe it is Jason's face and not the Joker's because the colorist chose to put a white glow line around the edges of Red Hood. This was done so that Jason's black hair(bluish gray tint) would not blend in with the background, which is also cold colors. If I were coloring the Joker with his green hair, I would have used a warmer background or less saturated blue tones. But that's me.

Wow, that is freakishly awesome looking.
I really doubt it's what he'll actually look like though. This doesn't really seem like something they'd do to Jason. I mean, we've got Two-Face-great, than Joker did the same to his face-not great, now again to Jason?-no way.
It's just great art. I'll be picking it up, and I hope the interiors match the covers.
Well obviously something is going to happen to Jason otherwise the scene in RHTO with Joker doodling with the mask makes no sense. It might not look exactly as the cover depicts, and in that regard it could be symbolic to make him look like faceless Joker. It could be that the mask is permanently glued on and can't be removed without taking Jason's whole face with it.
I definitely believe that something will happen to Jason, most probably to his face, but I'm in the camp of the people who believes that this cover is more symbolic than literal. Those don't look like scars or a face melted by acid, it looks like the skin was cut clean.
i think it would be hilarious if some of these WTF covers were just dreams and people got upset over nothing
What if on the platter is the Joker's head and Jason was putting on the Joker's face?
okay, first post. sorry if waxing poetic.
Maybe it's less about what the joker did than how Jason reacts to it. let's suppose for a moment that Joker put something in the helmet that scars jason the same way the Ace chemicals scarred him. thus, we once more come down to a Red Hood, facial disfigurement; and a mirror.
the question might be, does jason's reflection in the mirror break him like it did the Joker, or does he rise above it; and perhaps finally find a path not dominated by the Bats or Joker?
If the Joker does takes Jason's face I hope it isn't a permanent look for the character. In a world with magic and alien tech it shouldn't be too difficult to restore his face. I know we have face transplants in the real world but they don't usually turn out that well. I don't think Jason should be a disfigured anti hero psycho.
