    I just finished reading almost 2 years of Teen Titans.

    Although it was mostly shit, Lobdel is not as talentless as we give him credit for.

    It's only awful.

    I saw a movie the other day about two nerds falling in love and half way through before everything goes wrong, during their date, he says to she "You're right! I thought I was the only person in the world that noticed that Scott Lobdell can't draw feet!"

    The Secret Lives of Dorks

    I kept reading because I wanted to find out if Kid Flash was a refugee form the Old 52 since he was half way through a time travel adventure himself when Barry turned everything upside down.

    Is Robin never going to get the Girl?

    So what is the deal with Did Flash? I haven't been reading Teen Titans.

    Just read Action Comics #25 and really enjoyed. Good story and great art.

    On another note, how soon before we need to start a new thread? Don't the mods shut these things down around the 8000 post mark?

    24 issues (28 including specials) and all they gave me is crumbs.

    He's a young offender from the future. The past is his green room while they're figuring out what to do with him. At least that's what was said early on... Then around issue 20 something he's a terrorist/freedom fighter who tried to save his colony from the oppression of Earth and got stomped on.

    The NYPD cop chasing the Titans because of all the millions of dollars of property damage they seem to cause, also turned out to be a time traveller hersself who knew exactly who Bart was... But her invovlement got phased out for some unknown reason.

    In the future his name isn't even Bart Allen, it's Bar Tor, so Kid Flash may not even be the Flash's grandson, which just makes him some random asshole instead of a third generation legacy.

    They must know that as long as they don't explain it well or completely, people will keep buying this book because until Robin started man whoring it through the team like a latter day Fonzie (Which was quickly explained away by red glowing eyes as Trigon roofying him into a creep to break up the teamm and take over the world.) it's all pretty weak.

    Yeah that should be pretty interesting. I also am interested in the Lois Lane book.

    I just want to see a conservative Japanese businessman approach Professor Magnus about making him Sexbots.

    What's he going to say?

    She may not currently, but those may be on the options list.

    The Metal Men can morph their bodies. She can have them when she needs them.

    By that theory, not only could she have them any time needed, but as many and in a variety.

    but they're all still made of metal.

    And to get them as soft as a human cooch, what is the boiling temp of Silver?

    Alright I know that's not true. These robots wouldn't be able to articulate if they were as rigid as the metals they impersonate.

    I just read Superman Wonder Woman #1. I love the artwork. It's much better than in the Wonder Woman solo title. I'll stick around 'til the end of the first arc then decide if I want to continue.

    I thought it was pretty lame that they introduce Doomsday for two punches and then he just magically disappears again. I thought this opening arc was going to be about Doomsday, not about (spoiler)!

    Batman #25. Is there ever a bad issue from Capullo / Snyder? Is this "Doctor Death" a pre-existing character? I've never heard of him. This issue explains my huge issue with "Zero Year"... how could the Riddler erase power for an entire year? Apparently he's going to keep sabotaging whatever repairs they do! :lol:

    He was from the 1930s I think he caught on fire while Batman mocked him.

    Yep, just looked him up. He's actually the first super villain that Batman ever faced and his first recurring bad guy! He's barely appeared since then though.
