#4 RED HOOD
There have been a few people to hide their face under the Red Hood and that’s what makes the idea of doing this character exciting. Red Hood could be a multitude of things, a simple bank robber and schemer to an almost Punisher-like vigilante. Either way, when Red Hood is involved you can bet there will be smart plans and lots of bullets.
The two most famous people to wear the Red Hood are Jason Todd, the former Robin, and the man himself, the Joker. The Joker was the first Red Hood (or if you go by Alan Moore’s "The Killing Joke" one of many Red Hoods) and was made into the Clown Prince of Crime after falling into a vat of chemicals. But for a while before putting on the smile, he was simply Red Hood. The second Red Hood came in the form of Jason Todd “dying” only to return and take up the mantle of Red Hood but serve as competition for Batman.
I like the idea of taking the Alan Moore interpretation of Red Hood to the big screen. Make it a gang that ‘switches’ leaders with every crime so that no singular person runs the gang. You can then have them recruit a down-on-his-luck comedian who will have an accident as a result of wearing the Red Hood, cue Joker for the sequel.
