EASTER EGG!

James Harvey of The World's Finest met Batman Adventures writer Dan Slott at the FanExpo 2013 convention and asked the question Batman Adventures readers have been dying to know the answer for - "Who is the Red Hood?" And, as always, Slott delivered.

Had Batman Adventures continued, Dan Slott said, The Red Hood would have been revealed as Andrea Beaumont's mother, Victoria Beaumont, who also happened to be the real head of the Valestra mob. Years ago, she faked her death in an attempt to get her family away from the Valestra mob, and was disappointed to see her family eventually fall into their clutches. However, when she saw what happened to her husband, and what eventually became of her daughter, she felt it was time to not only get revenge on the Valestra mob, but take Gotham for herself. Inevitably, this would have led to a devastating confrontation between her, Batman, and Andrea Beaumont.
