No Cassie he wasn’t alright yesterday.
To be honest I am terribly scared by every new issue of Teen Titans written by Scott Lobdell and just him. Even thought the plot still sucks overall when Nicieza started scripting It stated to get bearable.
And Tim, our lovable sweet Tim, who is still awesome, you know…in Batman books, in Batman and Robin books, in Red Hood and the Outlaws books etc.
But why the fuck does Tim keep being be such a twat in his own book? This team is dysfunctional to it’s very core. It doesn’t work, it’s bad. And unless they come up with something, say that Tim has been influenced by Trigon since the very beginning I will be seriously sad.
This book started bad, had it’s shiny moments and then got horrible again. I think the only issues I actually liked and enjoyed were #13 and #16, and Nicieza’s Dino-story with KF.
I mean these are Teen Titans! They are supposed to be role models for our teenagers. What ever happened to Tim Drake who every kid wanted to be like? You know. This guy?
Guy who is polite and smart. Little cheeky but still a good kid? The adorable dork. This is guy who is proper role model. Someone who reflects insecurities of our society teenagers , but he strives to overcome them Someone who inspires people, who makes us want to be better.
Tim Drake now is a nightmare. The whole team is. I wouldn’t want my kids to take them as inspiration. The book doesn’t even work as reflection of todays teens! (YA does that well) These characters are just unbelievable bunch of twats that nobody likes. And unless they rut together they don’t even like each other. Where did Cassie/Tim ‘relationship’ in TT #17 come from? Why did Solstice willingly kiss Tim when she’s with Bart? Way to go to lose my respect girl. Is this Trigon or just unbelievably bad plot?!
