    Well, they got one thing right. Nightwing noticed the problem, make the initiative to build a team, share it with the League because it's important, and have no need for supervision

    Surprisingly Jonn's list includes a lot of future League member and people older than Dick, so they are taking this Titans... no... this metahuman issue seriously as they should be

    Edit: Oh scratch that, his real reason is below. The whole setup doesn't make sense.

    This, though, is ridiculous. Dick doesn't need an empath to read people. He's been established as the empath of the Batfam, pretty much. He's the one that goes for sympathetic approach and can read body language. The idea that he didn't realize that a mutated woman was running in fear is unbelievable.

    Remarkable Dan Abnett got one thing wrong and one thing right about Nightwing really something else isn't he? Comic companies to train their writers to be able to understand their characters more so that they can craft stories around them and who they are not what they want them to be.

    An empath and a telepath... well, that explains why Raven and Miss Martian are on the list.

    I noticed the league's suggestions included the new Power Girl, Atom, Batwoman, and Booster Gold. A lot of faces there I didn't recognise though.

    When I first figured that writers and artists are not given official character sheets I yelled. That seems to be a logical and simple thing to do, but they have to do their own research.

    When did you learn this? IF Abnett writes Nightwing like he's supposed to more that is making it clear that he likes his independence it should make up for the shoddy way he wrote him in the previous run. The fact Dick wants independence in thsi issue alone was the opposite of how the new Titans team was advertised in the Comic-Con.

    Oh I wasn't talking about Abnett. It's more about DC in general. I just figured it out. Christopher Priest said he only read Damian's latest appearance before writing him. Meredith Finch refused to read up on Donna Troy. There are multiple times when colorist miscolor a character, like that one time in Teen Titans where they made Kiran Singh, an Indian, white. So there's no mandatory reading they give to the team.

    This preview seemed longer than usual. I'm also not sure why MM pretended to be Superman. Seemed extra for no reason.

    At least Dick isn't folding completely here.

    Well that's disappointing that even their own creators don't bother to even know who they are writing for it should be mandatory for them to do that. Maybe they should at least keep a basic character sheet to pass around to the next team. It's kind of sad really.

    So the breaking of the Source Wall was the equivalent to a Particle Accelerator explosion ?

    It's nice to see Dick try and hold face against the League even if the League still basically insulted the last Titans team and Abnett still portrays Dick as a failure.

    Superman's classic duds really do look out-of-place next to the rest of the Trinity in their modern costumes.

    I also don't really get why Martian Manhunter would try to deceive Dick like that. Seems like a pretty unnecessary test.

    So, that list:

    Row 1: Frankenstein, Damage (?), ???, Aztek

    Row 2: Etrigan, ???, Blue Devil, Booster Gold, Tanya Spears.

    Row 3: ???, Amethys, Atom (Ryan Choi), Vibe, ???

    Row 4: Batwoman, Ambush Bug, Azrael, Black Orchid, Clayface, ???

    Row 5: Animal Man

    So, Dick did not realize that the girl was scared until the train ran over her? And he even need an empath to realize?

    I think I'm done with this book. I enjoy the Titans when the group is mainly composed of grown up former kid sidekicks. This collection of characters doesn't interest me in the slightest.
    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"
