If this is going to be a permanent costume for Raven...
I will miss the cloak.
@colonyofcells: The thing is, though, her name is Raven, but not her theme. She was never supposed to be dressing up as a bird or anything. Yeah, there were some subtle references, such as her soul self taking the shape of a raven and her hood looking a little like a beak, but that was it. Now they're taking the fact that she's named after a bird and shoving it straight in the reader's face, and it really falls short. It might not be so bad if not for that atrocious headgear and the kneepads... but it looks really overdone.
I think that may take the cake for worst redesign of a character in the new 52
I think this meme describes my feeling about that design
It's even worse that Raven is my favorite character and I have to see her in that costume until someone slap some sense into DC.
Like I said, I really hate the costume (at least it isn't revealing or sexy). They really don't need the mask or the knee pads, the costume would have been okay without them. Despite the horrible costume, I still love Raven.
By the way, who's the glowing dude behind Raven? I just noticed him.
Question, how tf will she be able to see with her eyes covered? They sould have remove that head gear thing, and turned it into a hood. Even the Phantom Stranger look was 10000000000000000000000000000000000000x better than this costume.
I still dont understand why they wont let her join Justice League Dark. None of the original titans are on the current teen titans, so why is she? And i hope that she isnt emo or goth again. Yeah she has this creepy vibe to her but that was because of her father. After Trigon was defeated and she could experience emotions, she was acted normal.
I am of course joking, though I did think it was Lobdell's fault initially. As much as I want to, I can't strangle Kenneth Rocafort, since he is actually my favourite artist (somebody obviously told him to design her like that!). No, seriously, the point here is, I wiuld ove the suit if it were't for that mask/cowl or so. Seriously. ut goddammit, I hate that thing. Let's hope it's just because she's possessed by Trigon.
@arnoldoaad: (According to Brett Booth it is) But I have to agree, the design is decent...had it just been on another character. My usual gripe with these kinds of things is that the designers end up removing too much of what make characters easily identifiable...in this case the hood.
I wonder what powers she has. Can she, teleport, use telekinesis, or has she perfected her empathy? Also I'm surprised that she express emotions, then again her emotions tend to make her powers stronger. And if I'm correct, in phantom stranger she used the absorbed emotions from others to make her soul self stronger.
@RavenArrow: I'd advise against it...besides it's not Scotts fault (for once ;) ) it's Kenneth Rocaford's design.
*Opens mouth really wide.
Is this really outside 85? Are there anyone impersonating him?
I don't recall Outside 85 would not blame Scott for anything in general.

Her mysticism is gone, but I'll wait till I see the full body outfit....this could easily grow on me.......depending
Agreed I don't think it's as bad as people are making it out to be. I actually like the design.
