Bio:
The second Robin was murdered by the archenemy of his mentor : The Joker.
He wasn't "supposed" to be dead at all, and the fact that he had died was a glitch in the universe's makeup.
But when Superboy-Prime hit the wall of his prison, the story corrected itself, and Jason, six months after the Joker murdered him, awoke in his coffin, still bruised and bleeding from the beating and explosion which had killed him. Using his belt buckle and bare hands, he managed to dig his way out and walk more than twelve miles away from the graveyard before being found by anyone. All he would say, and kept saying, was "Bruce".
Then the injuries to his skull and brain became too much, and he lapsed into a coma. He remained in a chronic vegetative state for a year. No record of his identity could be found.

His body awoke in time, but not his mind. Running on instinct, Jason escaped Huntington Convalescent Home and sought refuge on the streets. Still bereft of reason and sense of self, he spent another year there, stealing food and sharing it with the other homeless people in the area.
When he fought in the street with an angry homeless, a man recognised his style.
Through the underworld network, Jason's whereabouts became known to Ra's Al Ghul and his daughter Talia, who brought Jason to their home.

A year later, Jason had regained the health he had lost living on the street. His abilities as a fighter remained, but nothing of his personality or ability to interact with the world was evident. Ra's, becoming frustrated with how much time Talia was spending on the boy, decided it was time for Jason to be sent elsewhere.

Taking matters into her own hands, Talia shoved the unresponsive Jason into her father's Lazarus Pit, a rejuvenating pool which could restore life to bodies which were placed within it. It brought Jason's mind back. Fleeing Ra's' fury, Talia and Jason escaped to an oceanside clifftop. There, Talia warned Jason not to go to Bruce until Jason knew the truth -- that the Joker was still alive.

He trained himself, teamed with Hush, a new foe of Batman, to see if his dad had remorse when fighting his long dead sidekick
But he wasn't. A father lost his child and a boy his father, once more...
So a became the RedHood, willing to destroy the evil in Gotham, and killing everyone who try to stop him...

Notes:
Jason Todd possesses the normal human strength of a 6-foot, 180-pound young man who regularly engages in intensive physical exercise. By matching his former mentor in combat he has proven that he is physically superior to most Olympic athletes, just as Batman is. His reflexes, stamina, and endurance are roughly comparable to that of Dick Grayson. In his training to become Robin, Batman instructed him in acrobatics and martial arts. After his return, Jason expands on his training by learning from people of the same caliber as those who trained his ex-mentor, Batman. This has given him fighting skills that allowed him to fight his former mentor and Nightwing to a standstill. Through Talia al Ghul, Jason has access to high-level civilian and military-grade weaponry, including firearms, explosives, and even rocket launchers. However, his dagger (which resembles a kris) still remains as his preferred weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat. Although Jason does not possess the wealth of Bruce Wayne, his arsenal is nearly on par with Batman's.
