That title belongs to Roy.
And that's terrible
How is he a lame choice? His take on the Titans so far has been pretty damn good with Blackest Night and he's really written only one bad story (take a guess which one ).
But that one was so bad
Green Arrow is boring and unrelatable. Blackest Night: Titans was mediocre and melodramatic. Krul's run on the Titans before that -- while perfectly readable and harmless at best -- featured a completely different cast of characters than the current Teen Titans and was, at worst, basically a waste of an entire year of the franchise with issue after issue of "WHO WILL LEAVE THE TITANS NEXT? IS IT STARFIRE? IS IT CYBORG??"
No offense, but I have no idea why people expect Krul to save this broken series other than pure wishful thinking. Even if Krul's resume wasn't as middling as it is, Teen Titans has still become one of DC's worst books. I almost wouldn't wish Teen Titans on DC's best writers, much less one of its most unimpressive.
Green Arrow is pretty darn boring and unimpressive
Do not think that the Teen Titans comic book can be saved
At least the art will look pretty
Damian will rescue Teen Titans.
Ha ha I Damian but I am not sure he will
I think the book needs to die for a couple of years.
I do not want it to die because I really dig the Teen Titans team
But the comic book is so lame right now
Still better than Titans
That's what I was thinking. Just take 'em off the table for a while and then relaunch them properly. Ravager can stay the f*** home for it, although they probably would want to install Damian since he's the kid who's currently being called "Robin." I could bear him with a decent writer and a direction that's actually more interesting than "team shake-up, random adventures, something with Raven, rinse, repeat."
Kill Superboy again and this book will become way better.
Hey guys I'm about to do that hella annoying thing where you quote someone but change something about that quote and say "fixed." Okay here I go:
Did they screw up Superboy or is he just crazy?
Why wouldn't you wish it on a good writer?
It's a comic, not a curse. A good writer with a good creative direction could turn it around in an instant.
Ravager was the best thing in Teen Titans since OYL. That's not saying much though.
Oh but see that's where we disagree.
so what happened to Blue Beetle?
Any hypothetical good writer would probably crash headfirst into the editorial direction for the comic which has kept it steadfastly between "slightly worse than mediocre" and "****ing terrible".
They already have one Ravager.
Its the Titans. From now on they'll have spares in case someone dies (which happens all the time). t:
If there were ever a Damien/Ravager idea I could get behind it's the idea of there being bunches of disposable spares of them lying around for when the two of them (ideally very frequently) die.
"Welp Ravager fell off a cliff, better unthaw another one"
"Oops looks like Damien caught on fire, go fish one out of the vat"
"Oh Ravager shoved a sword through her own face (again), pull a spare one off the pile"
"Damien got on the wrong end of Superboy's fist, someone go put a quarter in the Damiens machine"
Neither, Superboy's still cool.
He joined the former JLI.
