Taken in by Natalia Knight (Detective Comics v1 #529 1983 DC) and trained by Natalia and her brother Anton, then taken in by Bruce when Natalia was killed by Anton. Any record of the existence of Jason Todd had been destroyed by the Knights. Natalia had seen to Jason's education and Bruce continued this with the help of Alfred and a series of private tutors.

Jason is incarcerated in Belle Reve where he kills almost forty inmates and, with the help of Nash and Icicle, tears through the Suicide Squad (which they had been on several missions with) and escapes to St.Roch where they just happen to run into Roy Harper who's drinking his woes away after being fired from Checkmate due to his relationship with the terrorist Cheshire.
