Plastic Lad Returns!

Teen Titans (Volume 3) #34
Written by Geoff Johns
Art and Cover by Tony Daniel and Sandra Hope
Variant Cover by Ed Benes

Well, the revelation of this issue was also revealed in this week's Infinite Crisis #6. I will not be reviewing Infinite Crisis because it is so good that I feel that any review could never do it justice. Anyway, Superboy is dead and for the first time while reading a comic, I actually cried. Connor Kent will be missed by this blogger. Over the past year, the Titans have changed a lot and now are a team consisting of Robin, Cyborg, The Ravager, and Kid Devil. Despite being on this cover, Wonder Girl has not rejoined the team yet. I really enjoyed this issue and I think the titans have changed the most of any of the DCU teams in the missing year. I also loved the cameo appearence of Luke aka Plastic Man's son. Finally maybe Plas will start to return to his pre-kyle baker greatness ( I hated that cartoony series). In the final moments of the issue we find out that Robin is apparently trying to reclone Superboy. This is an interesting development in that this will probably do more harm that good. If Robin succeeds, this will not be Connor, he will not have the memory or the personality of Connor so it will probably depress everyone even more but I can see why Robin would want to do it. Of the new members, I am interested in learning more about Kid Devil and the Ravager. I think they made a great duo, a sort of team inside a team, and I do not know much about their characters.

Superboy dead well we all saw that comming. When will comic writers learn that trimming the fat is coping out and not being cool. Make lemonade out of the lemons of the past.
