Another Infinite Crisis crossover. Read the final battle of Superboy!
Ok...I guess I'll be the 1st to review this tpb collection. This tpb collects TEEN TITANS #29-33, TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #1 and ROBIN #146-147 and INFINITE CRISIS #6. Here are the following story arcs in the tpb:
Jason Todd sneaking into the Titans Tower and confronting Tim Drake, the current Robin. They duke it out to see who is the better Robin. Tim gives his best shot, but in the end, gets beaten by Jason, who is more skilled and ruthless than Tim.
The live Teen Titans confront the deceased Teen Titans. Huh you may ask? Seems like dead superheroes don't wanna stay dead. Raven and Beast Boy and the rest of the living Teen Titans must find some way to ensure the dead Teen Titans are indeed dead. I won't spoil it for you, buy it and read it!
Superboy Prime confront Superboy of the Teen Titans, Conner, and beats Connor to a bloody pulp
Robin and the some of the Titans must retrieve some serum that will save Superboy life. It is stored in a secret bunker created by Lex Luthor to conduct cloning and other weird experiments. After battling their way through the bunker defense and experimental creatures gone awry, they are able to ascertain the much need serum to save Superboy's life.
After Superboy is cured, he goes back to Smallville with Wonder Girl to discuss their feelings and review his life. One thing leads to another and he finally bangs Wonder Girl...lucky dude!
Superboy and Nightwing join forces to thwart Alexander Luthor JR's attempt merge Earth 2 and Earth 3. Conner and Superboy Prime meet in final showdown in which only one Superboy walks away alive. Take a guess which Superboy lives and which one dies...hint to both Marvel and DC...no more stupid cloning of major Superheroes...1st Spider-man and then Superman. Then they both die and come back to life...see Spider-man The Other for the death and rebirth of Spidey.
Well that's the synopsis of the major arc in this tpb. If you've been following the Identity Crisis and Infinite Crisis, you'll better appreciate the collected stories here. If not, you'll surely be confused here.
Overall the book is an interesting read, some of the arcs just drag on. You get some great art and then some bleh art, especially the part in which Robin and the Titans are retrieving the serum to save Conner (Superboy) life. The artwork is damn ugly.
What we learn from this tpb is that Tim Drake needs more training from Batman in order to take on Jason Todd. No more cloning of major heroes, and no one in comics ever ever die! See Superman, Spider-man, Green Lantern, Jean Grey, Donna Troy, and Green Arrow etc. Too bad Lincoln can't be brought back to life run the Whitehouse. Nuff said!
Oh yeah, at least Conner got lucky before going off to fight Superboy Prime. That Wonder Girl is so easy. In current New Teen Titans comic run, she and Robin are now hooked up!! Is this the kiss of death for Tim Drake? Time will tell...oh wait...I think no one ever dies in comics!
