@Beast_in_the_Shadows: First of all, you can't really compare Beast Boy to Superman. I mean, are you really trying to tell me that a "man of steel" that is "faster than a speeding bullet" isn't intimidating? Second, characters evolve over time. The DCnU has revamped most of their characters to be "edgier", and frankly the direction they're taking Beast Boy in just works better.
Of course characters evolve over time, but that's not really what happened here. Before the reboot is when evolving for beast boy happened. He started to grow up and his levels of comedy lowered to a smaller amount. Then reboot happened and they made a complete change over. I'm just depressed about it is all. Beast Boy was someone I once felt like I could relate to. Now they have made him into more of someone I have always tried to avoid into becoming and it's just not as fun.
I'm just worried that the change won't only be cosmetic. In comic it is a terrible tredn for anything red themed to be angry and violent. I hope DC isn't taking a new color as an excuse to angst up Gar and try to make him edgier.
My opinion on the DCnU as a while is shaky and unstable at best, but if they do too much to Gar I'm willing to really call it quits and cut my ties.
Wow! you make a good point! I noticed his character not having that same kind of fun awesomeness to him, which pisses me off. I could never give up on him though he's just the reason I ever really got into comics :( so now life is just lost in the comic world and ever since the reboot have read less and less comics! which also makes me sad
