I'm liking every thing in TT so far, the only thing I vehemently wish is that Lobdell had been aloud to make Aqua Lad one of the "core four" Teen Titans like he wanted to.

Core Five, but yes. Aqualad isn't appearing anywhere is he? I think he's only going to join after he appears in Aquaman.

My bad, I was going off memory since I have plenty of New 52 issues from the past month that I have but I have not read.

Do you enoy Superboy? Has Rose done anything noteworthy since last I read the series? I know she'll be fighting Superboy in a few months.

Yeah I know :P

I'm not the right guy to ask, I've only read issue #1. Its in my catch up pile, right after two issues of Frankenstein, All-Star Western and Men of War

Lol yea Core Five, my bad. Not as far as I know (although I haven't read any of last weeks issues because my WI-Fi has gone really slow so my issues wont load up :() but yea thats what was said, he was appearing in another book so he was out of bounds till then.

I prefer the old one because it's more dark and much better. The new one is a disgrace

I only like the old one and certain renditions of the new one (Rocaforts and Rapmunds for example).

The new one looks too much like Robin & not Red Robin. RR needs the cowl.

The New52 Red Robin is just terrible for so so so many reasons. His new origin and personality that shits on the name Tim Drake being prime among them. But the costume is fucking ugly and there's no denying that.

The wings are awful, there's too many pouches, and the patterns are completely nonsensical. It's just an ugly design.

@jorelliot: agreed.

I hate the wings. It's a way to literal interpetation of "robin". It's just silly. Tim Drake never relied on wings as Robin.

The whole Mask vs Cowl thing, I like the cowl, but his costume design has bigger problems. Did anybody say that it looks like a Rob Liefeld design? Maybe all RR needs is an upper thigh pouch and that would fix everything.

With the cowl he looks like a penis. Without the cowl he looks like a fusion of robin and the falcon.
