Poll: Should Titans’ Jason Todd Live or Die?

In the latest episode of DC Universe’s Titans, Jason Todd was used as a pawn in Deathstroke’s revenge against the team. Though Dick & Kori tried to save him, the episode ended with Jason falling to his doom. Will he live or will Jason Todd die? 

The audience can decide!

Take the poll HERE and let your voice be heard. This isn’t the first time that Jason’s fate was left to the whims of others.

In 1988, DC Comics published “A Death in the Family” a four-issue Batman comic book storyline featured in issues #426–429. The series was written by Jim Starlin and illustrated by Jim Aparo, with Mike Mignola designing  each cover. The story followed Jason Todd/Robin’s quest to be reunited with his birth mother after being relieved of his duties by Batman. During his journey, however, the Joker kidnapped and tortured him, eventually killing him. The storyline was notable for its 900 number voting system, in which fans were allowed to call two separate numbers and chose whether Jason would survive the Joker’s torture or die.

Will history repeat itself or will Jason live to mouth off another day?
