Okay, a new day, a new Teen Titans review. The first issue saw Geoff Johns doing what Geoff Johns does, shit all over the past work of other writers. Will that trend continue? Will Batman continue being weird regarding Tim Drake's personal life? Will Cyborg actually show up? Will Beast Boy continue perving on underage girls? The answer to all that and more will be revealed... Now!
Teen Titans #2(Oct. 2003)
Summary: We start off by seeing that Deathstroke is crazy again.
Human head as a trophy? Insanity confirmed.
Picking hair from your best friend's bath towel? Creepiness confirmed.
But... Where did all that water come from?
Bart Allen, fastest of the Titans is the one who gets shot with a dart... Thanks, DC. Also, isn't it moths to a flame??
Thoughts: I don't remember what pushed Deathstroke over the edge this time around. I'm gonna guess that Ravager or Jericho was dead and he went crazy mourning, but I'm blanking on which was the more likely scenario in 2003. I'm gonna guess it was Jericho. I know he went evil in the 90's, and I think he died as a result. But then, I also know he was back by the early 10's, so I'm not exactly sure. Oh well, I guess I'll find out going forward(probably). This issue did put a few wheels in motion, we find out who the first big bad of the series is(Deathstroke is always a great choice), Bart begins the process of becoming Kid Flash, and the Titans begin to form into a team. Sure there was some cringe-worthy stuff in here, like the scene between Bart and Cassie *shudder*,
In other words, "I jack it to you nightly. You cool with that?"
