Coloring

All right. I'm back. I finished my MA exam and presumably now a Master of the Universe. I won't know for sure until I get the results back.

Now, while I was supposed to be thinking about the foundations of the Tokugawa Shogunate I was instead thinking about very silly things. Like Jason Todd's hair.

Here's the thing: it seems to change color every few years. Here's the timeline as far as I can tell:

Pre-Crisis: Jason's hair is blond; he dies it black to be Robin.

Post-Crisis: Jason's hair is actually black.

Hush: Jason's hair is black with a white streak.

Under the Hood: Jason's hair is just black again.

Batman and Robin: Jason's hair is red with a white streak.

Currently: Jason's hair is just red.

Now, I understand that editors have more important things to worry about that what color hair Jason Todd has. I mean, there's that whole relaunch and everything. I get it. But maybe, just maybe we could pick one and stick with it when we hit the New 52 era? Please?

Congratulations on your pending degree. Of COURSE you aced it.

I agree about Jason's hair. It is becoming...a distraction.

Jason's hair reminds me of Jason's existence, and is thus an irritant. Even killing him off again is more attention than this character deserves.
