We all know what happened to Jason Todd. During the famed 1988 "A Death in the Family" storyline, readers could vote on whether he survived being beaten senseless and left to die in an explosion by the Joker. Since he was widely hated by the readers, they overwhelmingly voted to kill him off. Except that's not what happened. While certainly contentious, Jason Todd was never as hated as is frequently claimed, and the choice to kill him won by a mere 72 votes out of over 10,000 cast. Moreover, according to Dennis O'Neil, it was later revealed that one caller had programmed a computer to submit a lot of votes to kill Todd. The computer cast over 300 votes. You see where I'm going with this, right? My question is simple: what if the cheating with the votes hadn't happened, and Todd had survived?
