Justice League vs. Teen TitansThe latest home video release further exploring the characters and world introduced in Son of Batman sends the uncompromising Damian Wayne (Stuart Allan) to the Teen Titans in hopes that Robin may be able to learn teamwork and trust. Borrowing a little from Damien’s time with the Teen Titans prior to the New 52 reboot, writers Bryan Q. Miller and Alan Burnett choose to give their spin on a more classic Trigon (Jon Bernthal) story. As with the previous movies, the story lacks the Robin/Red Robin rivalry from the comics, but certainly entertains.

With both heroes and villains being possessed by a demon threatening to break into their world, Raven (Taissa Farmiga) reveals the truth about herself and her father to her teammates Beast Boy (Brandon Soo Hoo), Blue Beetle (Jake T. Austin), and Starfire (Kari Wahlgren). When Raven is captured and multiple members of the Justice League are possessed by Trigon it falls on Robin and the Teen Titans to save the day.

Titans Hunt #1

Titans Hunt #1Seizing on the opportunities left by Convergence introducing heroes from multiple versions of the DCU, Titans Hunt is an attempt to undo one of the many mistakes of the New 52 that did away with the original Teen Titans. The first issue checks in with the current characters each beginning to think there may be a large piece of their past missing from their memories.

I’m happy to see DC finally get around to acknowledging Dick Grayson‘s original team of adolescent heroes and bringing characters like Donna Troy into the New 52. While many of the original team will be part of this series it seems there are some important absences. Kid Flash is the obvious missing piece of the puzzle as the current version of Wally West hasn’t found his super-speed yet and apparently the comic has no plans in resurrecting the original for this series.

Teen Titans Go! - Knowledge

Tired of constant misunderstandings between herself and her teammates, a despondent Starfire (Hynden Walch) enlists the help of Raven (Tara Strong) to learn about human culture (despite the rest of the Titans worrying that Raven will turn Starfire into a total bummer). When the use of a Schoolhouse Rock! musical performance doesn’t make odd human idioms any more clear, Raven relies on magic to transform her teammate by offering her all human knowledge – with disastrous results.

Teen Titans Go! #4

by Alan Rapp on June 26, 2014

in Comics

Teen Titans Go! #4The latest issue of Teen Titans Go! focuses on two themes well-developed on the current Cartoon Network cartoon: obsessive behavior by the team and Robin‘s super-competitive streak which often gets him into trouble. Fans of the show should enjoy themselves, although neither of the two tales really stands out.

The first story centers around a game of Go Fish among Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Raven, and Cyborg which gets so contentious the group doesn’t even notice the arrival of the H.I.V.E. who show up itching for a fight and destroy the tower around the Titans when they don’t get it.

Too prove he’s the team’s best member Robin decides to create an obstacle course in the comic’s second story centering each obstacle on his specific skill-set. However, when he’s teammates beat him to the finish line it online infuriates their leader even more. For fans.

[DC, $3.99]
