After Batman apparently died at the conclusion of the 2008 "Batman R.I.P." storyline, Jason Todd took upon himself the mantel of his former mantel. Todd debuted in a redesigned Batman uniform in Batman: Battle for the Cowl #1 (May 2009). The identity of this new ultra-violent and often lethal "Batman" was not initially revealed. But in the next issue (Batman: Battle for the Cowl #2), Dick Grayson correctly deduced that Jason Todd had taken up (or "stolen", as he put it) Batman's mantel.

Jason Todd's term as "Batman" was a very short one. Bruce Wayne's original sidekick, Dick Grayson, confronted Jason Todd and defeated him in battle. Jason Todd disappeared for a time, while Grayson himself donned the mantle of the bat as the new Batman.
