razzatazz's Teen Titans #2 - Underground and Overwhelmed review

Avatar image for razzatazz

A good guy

Of all the DC reboots under the new 52 I will say that this one is the smartest, not necessarily the best or the most exciting, but the manner in which the creative team are treating this too-big-to-fail book is quite impressive.  At the center of it is of course Tim Drake, re-imagined here as a combination of costumed vigilante and internet activist/hacker.  It is not just there though that this series is succeeding but also with the other characters, the impetuous Kid Flash, the hard-to-get-along with Wonder Girl, and the potential foe in Superboy.  In addition to the staples though, the introduction of new heroes is being handled well thus far, especially here with Skitter.  All too often a character is introduced with not much thought put into them but here that does not appear to be the case.  It is also interesting that this series is following the Justice League example as after two issues there is not a team per se.  Definitely one of the better titles out there in the new 52.

    Synopsis: Red Robin goes to search for another potential candidate for his team, but can he get to Skitter before N.O.W.H.E.R.E does? -What's Good? Scott Lobell really has a handle on Tim Drake's character. In the old version of Teen Titans, Tim was the obvious choice to be the team leader, and he shows this quality in this new incarnation. I'm still liking Cassie's new personality as well. I'm also liking that Solstice is still around in the DC reboot, even with her new look. As for Skitter th...
