The Red Hood Gang was a team of criminals who joined forces with a plan of using a simple ruse in an attempt to confuse their opponents: create a false figurehead named the Red Hood.  However, while their fake leader was defeated by Batman, he fell into a vat of chemicals and seemingly died (though some believe this criminal may have become the Joker).

New 52Edit

In the New 52 continuity, a young Bruce Wayne encounters the Red Hood Gang following his training to become a vigilante.  In order to defeat them, Bruce infiltrates the gang with the intention of defeating them from within.  However, the leader of the Red Hood gang sniffed out Bruce and attempted to kill him.  Bruce escapes but with the Red Hood Gang knowing Bruce's involvement, they kept him as a target in case he became a liability.

JokerEdit
