Exclusive Preview: TEEN TITANS #16

Tim Drake and Jason Todd are hanging out together. Not by choice. Find out what Joker has planned.

There's been some complaints about Joker being everywhere taking on the entire Bat-Family in the Death of the Family issues. What was great about the TEEN TITANS and RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS issues is Joker brought both Tim and Jason to the same place. The end of the story is near and we got an exclusive preview for TEEN TITANS #16 to see what the final phase to Joker's plan is.

And check out the solicit to see who's "returning."

TEEN TITANS #16

A “DEATH OF THE FAMILY” tie-in!
• Our heroes learn a lesson they’ll never forget as Arsenal takes control in Red Robin’s absence!
• Mirroring the events of RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #16, Jason Todd and Tim Drake must rely on each other to survive The Joker’s attack!
• Plus: It’s the return of Raven!

I agree I haven't read any of his issues and won't. I don't like the guy. Killing animals for fun in comics is wrong. I haven't read very many comics, but just hearing what he is doing with this storyline makes me sick.

Poor Tim Drake.

Tim is probably the biggest casualty of the New 52 rewrites. All his best traits were given to Dick Grayson in the #0 issue. His connection to the Bat-family hasn't been explored, like at all. He was cover teased sooooo hard during the Court of Owls arc and all we got was a prissy looking panel shot. They keep clamming that he's a super genius but all his plans blow up right in his face. You can't tell me that this Tim Drake that was retarded enough to steal from the Penguin and not cover his tracks is the same Tim Drake that almost single-handedly defeated the League of Assassin's.

Lobdell, stop killing this character!!! What was the point of changing his name to "Red Robin" form the beginning. How is Jason Todd the closet member of the Bat-Family to him? Was that part in Battle for the Cowl where Jason tried to kill him just laughed off?!? I like the idea of them becoming closer but whatever happened to Tim becoming Red Robin because Dick was so close to Tim as a brother that he could never view him as a sidekick. Teen Titans needs a new creative team so bad I can't think straight anymore lol.

I figured it out. It hasn't been the Joker who has been terrorizing the Bat family. It was Joe from Joe's garage the whole time. He must have burned his face while welding or something and the accident granted him psychic powers then he decided to take down the family one by one or in this case two by two. It's either that or Joker lost his sense of fashion after losing his face.

@Nightwing28710: Lol I love his art! and i'm loving Teen Titans too!

Why would tim be such an outsider? He seemed closer to batman then almost any other Robin prior to New-52.

That whole "like brothers" thing between Tim and Jason makes no sense, esp. when he follows it up by saying they haven't talked much since Jason came back from the dead. Given that Tim didn't become Batman's partner until after Jason died, they couldn't have bonded over being members of that "exclusive club" before then. And if they haven't talked much since Jason came back, when did they have a chance to form this brotherly relationship?

THANK YOU! This explains my thoughts exactly

I JUST DONT GET HOW THIS COULD HAVE GOTTEN PAST LOBDELL OR EDITING

How can you write two Bat family characters and not know the bat-family time line and WHY destroy Tim Drake? If you want to have Jason get past his issues over his death fine, im not happy about it but fine, but to have Tim no longer be a robin (which doesnt really help or hurt him in any way) and to take away his relationship with Dick and as someone else said call him a genius and then have every plan blow up. He changed before the New 52. He was almost willing to kill to succeed and was able to take on the league of assassins. The only reason why i would think its happening the way it is is bc he is now going against teams of mutants rather then teams of assassins.

so true i swear lodbell just writes sh!! to p!!s off fans Dick and Tim are the closets in the fam and Jason and Tim never would have met before Jason died and havnt really talked sinde he has been back so yeah makes perfect sense that they would be closets to each other...Give me a break and a new writer for TT.

If the artist got Starfire's costume wrong like he did on the cover that's hilarious.
