Summary

The death of his brother-in-arms leads to a visit from Jason Todd’s mentor and father figure, Bruce Wayne, which furthers the resolve of the Red Hood to achieve justice his way or the high way

Positives

As usual, Red Hood And The Outlaws does not fail to disappoint.  The appearance of Bruce Wayne, in a peaceful manor, was a wonderful addition to this issue despite him giving Jason Todd the horrible news of Roy Harper’s death.  The somber, yet positive tone was inspirational especially for a book known for for its non-stop action.

Negatives

There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.

Verdict

Red Hood And The Outlaws is the best series by DC Comics right now.  Start collecting these issues because this is what a comic book series should be.

DC Universe ~ Titans Review

Next week ‘Titans’ becomes the first big premier for the new DC Universe streaming service. I was fortunate enough to receive the first 3 episodes of the long-awaited series from Warner Bros for review. The biggest thing I should note here is that ‘Titans’ is definitely for mature audiences only. There is plenty of foul language, violence and general adult content making it not suitable for the younger comic book fans.

image

Led by Batman’s longtime sidekick Dick Grayson, the Titans finally get their live-action small screen debut. Grayson is played by Brenton Thwaites, who also portrays the character’s alter-ego Robin. Dick works for the police force, somewhat like the character did in Chuck Dixon’s legendary comic book run. But unlike Dixon’s run, Grayson isn’t Nightwing yet. I found myself really liking Thwaites portrayal of both Dick and his alter-ego Robin, even though at times he’s seems to be a bloodthirsty punk with a fowl mouth. It’s a shame too, because Thwaites is a very likable actor. Watching the actual scene where he drops his famous (trailer) F-bomb, I was left scratching my head and asking myself, “why did he just say that … what’s the point?” It dampened what was a cool fight scene.

image

The other character the show seems to be built around is Rachel Roth/Raven played by Teagan Croft. Roth is set up as a kind of John Connor type of character. She’s finds herself on the run, because her life may control a darkened future. I have a lot of problems with the Roth, mainly because she plays a character I should care for, yet I don’t. 

image

Other DC characters who get there live-action treatment are Kory Anders/Starfire (Anna Diop), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Garfield “Gar" Logan/ Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).

Starfire’s character has some identity issues, but she definitely seems to enjoy her own brutal way of handling problems.

image

I’m not really sure what Hawk and Dove are up to, but that’s okay, I don’t think they know what they’re doing either.

I had a lot of problems with ‘Titans’, the main one being the “super heroes” didn’t seem too heroic. The overall storyline seems rushed, I never had time to invested in the team. Hopefully as the series goes on, there will be time to get to know the main characters a little better.

image

With all its problems, the show does manage to score on some levels. The fight scenes are well choreographed. The supporting characters are also well acted and enjoyable, especially the villains who are posing as a 50′s styled family … they steal the show IMO.

image

Even with all its downfalls, there are reasons I want to continue watching ‘Titans’,  but that list isn’t that long.
