We've seen a couple images already.  There's a new Red Hood hitting the streets of Gotham City.  He'll be "lurking in the shadows" in issue #4 (which features the origin of his apparent partner, Scarlet).  The synopsis for issue #4 refers to them as Gotham's "vicious new protectors."  They're trying to "destroy the very reputation and legacy of the Batman by replacing it altogether."

There's been some guesses that the girl will be the one from issue #1.  I can't see this Red Hood being her father.  I know some people have already guessed that it'll be Jason Todd.  There's also the "growing up" part in the Quitely cover.  That would make sense but do you think he'd return so soon?  I'm sure he'd be pissed enough after Battle For The Cowl to want to destroy the Batman legacy.  He's already shown that he would prefer to be a 'vicious protector.'  What do you think? 

Check out Philip Tan's variant covers to issue #4 (below) and #5 (above).  He's also doing the interior art for this arc.

With those guns it has to be Todd. Not sure who could possibly be the creepy face girl other than the girl from the first issue. All I know is that I love Morrison and Quitely they are amazing.

Well, he looks cool. Lets see if he turns out to actually be interesting or not. The red helmet thing is pretty rad, to be honest.

I really hope it's Jason, it would be stupid if it was the father for so many reasons. Not only was he just so out of shape bank robber but having Jason go back to his red hood character would save him from all the crappy stories he's been in since then. Also there's no way it can be anyone other than Jason with the Red hood, guns, and muscles. I just hope the turn him into an anti-hero instead of a psychopath like in BFTC.

Her dad was a traitor or something.  The Circus dealt with him.  He had a daughter and they put one of those kewpie doll masks on her.

I agree.  I actually liked when Jason Todd first took on the identity.  Kinda creepy since it was the Joker's identity and he got beat with a crowbar by him.  But Jason is just a twisted dude.  It would be a little weird if Jason did go back to that identity.  Maybe they all have hard times coming up with new identities (like Tim taking Jason's leftover guise, Red Robin).

I kinda like the idea of Jason being Red Hood its perfect irony and I do hope its him and he stays that way.

Also if Scarlett is in fact that girl I hope they don't make her a bad ass from the beginning. I dont remember it saying if she had training and what not. I'd like to she her training from Red Hood if it is Jason and see him manipulate her Deathstore/Terra style

Has Morrison ever acknowledged the resurrection of Todd in his Batman run?

Could it be Joker and Harley in disguise?  That would be quite the "joke"...especially if Joker has figured out that Batman is now the former Robin and has "grown up".

It would be kinda cool if it was the Joker but if that's the case. It looks like the Jokers been pumping ALOT of iron.  I think/hope it's Jason because he said he'd be back. I liked him as the Red Hood because he's twisted and that's the Joker's old persona. I wonder who's the side kick. Is this some random girl who happened to agree with this twisted perspective of justice?

"The fight against crime grows up" If the Red Hood is Jason and obviously Dick being Batman, both former Robins. They've both grown up and fighting crime based on their perspectives. Both have a side kick who they're trying to pass on their ideology

My guess is Jason. Makes sense since DC has made Jason the most intense former Robin. I guess I would be a little upset if I came back form the dead and all I could wear was that horrible Red Robin costume.

remember how everyone was saying how Dick was way to obvious a choice to win the cowl even though he was the only logical winner, well the same goes for this situation, unless this is just a completely new comic character

The costume actually looks pretty good now, I think the only problem with it before was that Quitley's art style didn't suit it.

I don't think it's obvious at all yet....the "sidekick" is what's making me think it's not Jason....he doesn't seem like the type to have a sidekick....and if he did decide to go back to the Red Hood identity then why the completely different costume.....I'm leaning towards t being a completely new character

All signs point to Jason, but I would have liked him to stay out of the comics a bit longer. I need a Jason break.
I was really thinking that DC would want to surprise us and not make Dick Grayson Batman, because it was the obvious choice, but they didn't. Hopefully Red Hood will be a surprise.

all I am saying is if its not Jason than it has to be a completely new character. It won't be Cain or Deathstroke, it will noot be the new black mask.

I agree with you there...I'm not saying it is or isn't Jason, just that I don't think it's obvious yet....the only thing we know is that the guy's name is the Red Hood and I don't think that's enough to say it's definitely Jason yet

jason wears the Red Hood for the same reason Bruce wore the Bat, they both are related to very traumatizing events in their life that they feared

First  I love how They brought back the old red hood helmet for the character. Second, to my opinion it has to be Jason Todd ( I hope ) because he is already skill in tons of different weapons so a pair of guns are nothing and he is also trying this gig again of trying to ruin the rep of another hero such as when he dress as nightwing and start killing people just to ruin Dick image so he just playing a twisted game of messing with the new gotham duo heads of being the new protector of gotham.

I'd be okay with it being either Jason Todd or Joker and here's why...
Jason Todd - Honestly... It'd be the obvious pick, but that's only because it's so perfect. He's been Red Hood before and he's the coolest anti-hero since Winter Soldier, mostly because Jason Todd is DC's Bucky. If he felt so strongly that the legendary image of Batman needed to start crossing some lines, then just because he lost the battle for the cowl, doesn't mean that he'd quit on the overall vision, just seek an alternate outlet. The Red Hood identity is perfect to get that out. Also, we all know Jason Todd can't be hung out to dry. He's been just too good of a character as of late to simply vanish into obscurity again so soon. And who better to become Dick Grayson's arch-rival/nemesis?
Joker - Honestly... It'd be the wild card pick, but that's only because it's so perfect. Wait, say what?!? Yes, Joker was our original introduction to the Red Hood persona so of course he'd be a great person to sport the identity. Say nothing of the fact that Joker knows Batman and the Robins by extension so well, I'm almost certain that Joker's going to take one look at the new Batman and know it's not the real one and that it's the first Robin/Nightwing. Considering Batman and the Joker's complex relationship and how it's been said they can't truly exist without the other, it's possible that Joker might start fighting crime without the real Batman around. Huh?!? He's been shown in the past to revert to sanity when Batman was thought dead, only to flip out again when Batman was revealed to still be alive. It's possible from that angle, though rather unlikely. I wouldn't mind it however, as that would make Red Hood the single most unstable figure within Gotham City.

if it were jason it would also go along with his past with dick. He used to dress up like dick and act as nightwing, so now that that is over, him dressing up as batman and now portraying something from a time when dicks parents died would make total sense
