remember the original Super Sons in the 1970s; a couple of teenage pals,
hanging out, trying to do their thing without getting hassled by The Man. This
aint them (thank goodness).
thinks he’s training Jonathan, which, given the Son of Steel is only 10 years
old is not beyond the realm. So when a Teen Titans mission comes up, Damian is
quick to abandon hanging with Jonathan in favor of “more important stuff” with
the older kids. I think we can all relate, amiright?
Jonathan would have come in handy against the villain they face. Perhaps they
may not be defeated so easily. Or perhaps Jonathan would have fallen victim to
the same fate. Next issue will decide.
artwork by Jimenez is good, with a touch of animé, but he steers clear of it in
rendering the Titans (though Starfire hardly looks like a teen to me). Tomasi’s
dialogue, coming from young boys, their parents, or their super-powered
teammates rings true and refreshing. Much better than the
trying-too-hard-to-sound-hip I remember from the old days.
