8. Joker Beats Jason Todd to Near Death, Then Blows Him Up (Batman)
Jason Todd was the unpopular second Robin who – in no small part due to his unpopularity – was beaten to a pulp by the Joker with a crowbar. He’s then left in a warehouse which explodes before Batman can reach him, killing him. To add insult to injury, all of this is done in front of his mother, who dies in the explosion as well. The death was so disturbing that even Frank Miller, a man whose entire body of work is nothing if not a testament to inflicting physical pain on the human body, claimed that Todd’s death “was probably the ugliest thing I’ve seen in comics, and the most cynical.”
