When DC released a bunch of October Bat-book covers the other day, it was quickly noticed that Starfire’s costume had gotten much smaller, a natural move for the exhibitionist alien.
It was also noticed that part of the Red Hood had gotten bigger.
Now known as the Red Hood, Jason Todd was formerly a Robin, and we suspect the enhanced-junk in his costume is an homage to the totem of the Bat family group of titles.
What was artist Kenneth Rocafort thinking? Maybe he is just a big fan of bats.
UPDATE: Maybe this is an homage to Burt Ward, who famously had to have his bulge supressed so as not to scandalize America.
