Jason’s comic book death searches for his biological mom, whom he finds living somewhere in Africa or the Middle East. Jason meets Batman and follows Joker as he tries to sell a nuclear weapon to terrorists. Jason and Batman defeat Joker’s plot and find Jason’s mother. But she isn’t what Jason expected. Jason’s mother gave him to Joker to save her. Joker then beat Jason to death with a barbell and blows him up just before Batman can save him.
Titans season three will take liberties in its adaptation to create a compelling tale uniquely tailored to the characters developed over the previous two seasons.

It appears that Dick may play chess together with Scarecrow. Jason’s mother is not likely to be a factor in his death. Instead, Jason’s difficult relationship with Bruce is the focal point. Bruce’s failures as a father figure is also highlighted.
Jason’s death will not change in one aspect: Jason was beaten by the killer with a crowbar. A savage beating is likely to be the cause of death, even though there’s no mention of an explosion in the Titans Season 3 trailer. This is a small change compared to the apparent differences in Batman’s responses to Jason’s death. In comics, Jason’s suicide makes Batman more aggressive against his criminal prey and eventually prompts Superman to intervene. In Titans Bruce’s death leads to him abandoning the cowl as he’s overwhelmed with guilt.
