I have to say the re-introduction of Tim Drake in the New 52 Teen Titans was pretty cool. Yes, he was Robin. Now he is Red Robin, and you can rest easy, the wings you see on the cover are actually a function of his cape, so he’s not walking around like that all the time. He is a super genius for sure and is monitoring all of the teen age heroes via the web and news feeds. He also seems to feel responsible for this outbreak of teen crime fighters.
This figure looks great, although it has the potential to be among the top DC Collectibles; sadly its lack of articulation and accessories hold it back…ever so slightly. The sculpt is perfect and one that truly looks like the character. This is a Red Robin that looks as though he jumped right off of the pages of The New 52 Teen Titles comic; only problem is that it would have been great to see this figure in mid-flight…but alas this is a gripe the buyer will have to decide on and deal with. A huge thanks to Critters and Comics for supplying me with this great figure, visit for more awesome goodies!
In 2011, DC Comics relaunched its entire superhero comics line with the New 52 series. Teen Titans follows the story of teenage superheros taking on adult responsibilities. The New 52 Teen Titans consists of 4 volumes that detail the happenings among the team.
So what is the point of dragging this series out? Next issue is the last issue of the New 52 Teen Titans. I have no idea what’s going to happen. Will Bedard actually link things to the characters’ Rebirth appearances (though only Tim Drake has appeared so far)? Will he come up with a good reason why this team breaks apart and stops being friends and allies?
