DC has launched a poll asking Titans fans to vote on whether Curran Walters’ Jason Todd / Robin will live or die in the DC Universe series.
In the 1980s, DC held a phone poll to allow fans to choose if Jason Todd / Robin should die in the comic book story titled Batman: A Death in the Family. Of course, the fans ultimately voted for Jason Todd / Robin to die and the writers subsequently had the character killed off at the hands of the Joker.
Now, DC wants to recreate history by having fans vote on the fate of Curran Walters’ Jason Todd / Robin in Titans. The poll was launched after a recent episode of Titans in which Curran Walters’ Jason Todd / Robin was thrown off a building by Deathstroke. You can read the official description of the Titans poll below:
Holy 50 story plunge, Batman! In the latest episode of ‘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? Take the poll below to let your voice be heard! This isn’t the first time that Jason’s fate was left to the whims of others; will history repeat itself or will he live to mouth off another day?

Here is the official synopsis for Titans season 2:
In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin, Anna Diop as Koriand’r / Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth / Raven, and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children. Natalie Gumede has signed on to play Mercy Graves and Game of Thrones star Iain Glen is on board as Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman.
Titans season 2 is now airing on DC Universe.
