It seems to me

That it might help if they actually bothered to explain who they all and how they got together. (I mean, they're clearly borrowing heavy from the very first-early Wolfman stuff(I think that was who the writer/artist/whatever was initially). Instead, we see that they're all together(with two notable exceptions, given what I remember of the original line-up).

It's like, for example, we know who Slade is, and we know who the Hive are, but this doesn't touch at all on why it is that Slade hates them so.(not that I expect they would, given the demographic they seem to be aiming at while trying to draw in those who remember the comic back when it first started.)

And Raven's a whole can of worms all together. I can't wait to see if they try and bring Trigon in. Not too sure he'd really fit into the entire style they're going with here at all.

I'll keep watching, myself. Mostly because I'm an Titans fan from long ago and, like so many other things, they -screwed- them over completely.

Re: It seems to me

Wolfman's actually on-staff for the show.

I'm diggin' it, myself. Maybe this is because I don't know a hell of a lot about the established Titans continuity. :)

Re: It seems to me

I didn't know that. Must have missed it in the credits. Oh well. Thanks for the heads up! :) I am digging it, all the same, despite my nitpickings.

Re: It seems to me

You think the toon screws the Titans over, don't get me started on what it did to Young Justice.

That said, I am going to try and catch it tonight...
