i agree the titans have more of an edge than they had before, but in comparisons to the Titans since Johns left this title is by far an improvement what came before.
No not its not an improvement at all. Its far worse. Look at what they've done to Omen. She went from a babysitter/telepathic hero to a psychotic teen that enjoys torturing others. Beast Boy is now Red??? WTF?
Wonder Girl ................. sigh. Superboy is now nothing more then a weapon and a bad copy of what he once was. They ruined Solstice who was at least starting to be interesting. Bunker and Skitter are just annoying. Kid Flash and Robin are the only two Lobell didnt absolutely screw up but they still arent right.
Lobell is a writer ten years past his prime. He hasnt grown at all since his X-men days.
And after reading Teen Titans Annual I may give him the old stink palm if I ever meet him. Good God that was awful.
