To me, Damian is the worst Robin ever, he's rude, he's murdered people, he's completely full of himself, he's way too OP for someone so young EVEN in a superhero universe (especially without any super powers), and he treats everyone around him like trash including those who don't deserve it, and he rarely receives any proper comeuppance for it. Essentially, Damian is all of Batman's worst attributes combined together into one insufferable package and magnified tenfold, he's like a bad fanfic character brought to life, and I wish DC would stop trying to make him the center of attention all the time, like in the Teen Titan & Batman animated films. They WANT us to like him but I for one just DON'T, its bad enough Batman is so oversaturated these days, last thing we need is his awful son trying to boss around and steal the spotlight from far better characters, like Starfire, Tim Drake, & Beastboy etc. Damian is a bad Robin, a bad Titan, and overall a bad character, and I wish he'd either be killed off or retconned out of existence.

I'd rather Damian be killed off as well, I find him to be an unlikable, ungrateful brat and annoying as all hell. He's like the Adric or Wesley Crusher of DC comics, an obnoxious OP kid character that feels more at home in a bad Batman fanfic than a real DC storyline, and yet DC keeps trying to push his character on us even though he has no redeeming qualities & spends all his time belittling other, better characters...And we're supposed to think he's cool because he's Batman's bastard son? No, to me he's honestly the worst Robin ever, and that's saying something considering one of the past Robins would return from the dead to become a Batman hating vigilante XD. Damian seriously needs to go, let Tim Drake become Robin again, or at least introduce a new Robin who isn't such an asshole, or a Gary Stu for that matter.

    Not a bad look for Cheetah, but I feel she should have WAY more spots than that, otherwise the cheetah theme doesn't really work.

      What do you guys think of Starfire's new costume design for the Teen Titans Rebirth series? Personally I like it, except for the high heels...Pretty sure Starfire has avoided having high heels as part of her superhero attire for years so I don't think she should start wearing them now, they don't make a lot of sense for a melee fighter such as herself. What do you all think?

      Something I don't get is why she's changed her name from Flamebird to Hawkfire...HAWKFIRE...What does that even MEAN?! XD

      I mean, Flamebird is a legitimately cool sounding name & has some history behind it considering how originally she named herself after an ancient Kryptonian hero, she and Nightwing I believe. However, even without that backstory, naming herself after something as awe inspiring as a phoenix or firebird is a perfectly suitable superhero moniker, but Hawkfire? It makes no sense by comparison, I mean what, is she named after a hawk who starts fires or IS on fire? Its obviously meant to sound cool or intimidating but instead it sounds like a parody of a superhero name. Since she's gone by the name Flamebird most frequently over the years since her time as Batgirl was retconned, I honestly think they should have just kept her old name, it makes more sense and is more recognizable to the fanbase at large.

      I realize there are other problems going on with how the character is handled both today and in the past, but the latest name change just really strikes me as dumb on top of everything else.

      P.S. I also don't like how her costume is now devoid of red & is now mostly black, I realize its probably meant to make her more stealthy but since when has stealth ever stopped any of the many incarnations of Robin from wearing red, yellow, and/or green in their own costumes? Just saying, not every hero needs to dress in dark colors to be cool like Batman, & these are superhero comics, they're meant to be fun escapes from reality anyway (not saying that hand waves or excuses any bad call or silly moment that happens in comics, just saying someone named Flamebird or Hawkfire should probably have more red in their uniform than black).

      @jonny_anonymous: The new series certainly does make that clear with the connection to the Vega System deity Omega & the idea of the group existing to bring an end to the Citadel, AKA the Alpha Empire, though I still wonder what the original meaning behind it was when Marv Wolfman first created the team. Perhaps simply a reference to them being the Vega System's last hope for freedom from the original Citadel?

      As many of you may know, the obscure alien team of freedom fighters known as the Omega Men, created by Marv Wolfman back in the 80s, have made a comeback in DC Comics, their new adventures written by Tom King. So what do you think of the new Omega Men? Are they an improvement over past incarnations of the team? Or at least a worthy successor? Or do they fall short of expectations?

        I wish they had taken the opportunity to update Kalista's look a little, namely make her appear more alien, instead of one of those pesky "space humans" you see from time to time (where DC comics is involved, I feel only Kryptonians can really get away with that lol)

          Nice pic, Scrapps has been awesome in the Omega Men comics thus far, hope we learn more about her soon, like her species, planet of origin, and just how much more kickass she can become in the following issues lol
