Predicament

How can you write a review about this issue without giving spoilers? I guess very carefully as I am about to do.

This issue takes a look back at the good old days of the Titans...the old team with Raven, Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Starfire, Donna Troy, and Flash. They have a super battle against Bizarro and Joker. It then shows Cyborg trying to recreate that old team...since the new Titans don't really need Cyborg. EVERYONE turns him down...so you have to feel bad for the guy.

So what do you do...you make a new Titans...here are the flaws with his choices or whatnot... Power Boy is a psychopath...I have hated him since his stalkerish ways to Supergirl...which are STILL present.

Anima is a great choice...I have not seen her in a long time and I always thought that her and Hitman were the only cool ones from Bloodlines.

Hawk and Dove...boring. Lagoon Boy...Who the f? Son of Vulcan and Big Barda...:-p...cheese.

I have been waiting for Power Boy and Big Barda to die as the death of the New Gods is going on...so I was disappointed here...let me just say to end this...WHAT A WASTE...there I said it...WTF DC

The segue from past to present was poignant in showin...

    Just a launching point for new title 0

    Basically, it's a mediocre story without much depth but keep in mind, this book's only purpose is act as a launching point to tease readers for the upcoming Titans #1. I don't think it's meant to do much on its own.This Judd Winick story about the Teen Titans opens up with the classic team consisting of Robin, Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, Donna Troy, Beast Boy and Kid Flash. Their motto, Titans Together! Together Forever! comes crashing to a halt at the end of a flashback where the team has just tro...
