Spinning out of IDENTITY CRISIS! Recovering from their trip through time, the Teen Titans are asked to track down one loose end from IDENTITY CRISIS: the armor of Lex Luthor. But there are others after it too, including Warp and the Electrocutioner!

    Mike McKone's departure has been a serious blow to this title, and my fingers are crossed that DC has another quality artist lined up to take over. I do hope that Duncan Rouleau's work on the cover doesn't mean he's next in line, as his cover makes it pretty clear that he still has someproblems when it comes to delivering a clear, easy to understand image, as one has toreally study the image closely to figure of what exactly the Teen Titans are fighting. As for the interior art, Tom Grummett does his normal stand-up job, as the action is clearlylaid out on the page, and there's several final big impact moments, from the panelwhere Superboy is struck down by the battle armor, to the sudden eruption of Robin's anger. One quibble I will make about the art though is when the Electrocutioner is reacting to Robin's water attack, he suddenly drops down a level on the fire-escape, when the writing makes it pretty clear he didn't have the time to do so.

    All in all, Teen Titans #20 is a prime example of how DC will use Identity Crisis to redirect and recharge its super-hero universe (see this weeks Adventures of Superman #636 as well). Read Full Review

    Ive only one question: What is Luthors status in the DCU? In Superman/Batman #6, he went crazy and was impeached as President. Next thing I know, hes building a new skyscraper in The Question, and bailing out criminals in Identity Crisis. I thought Luthor went into hiding. Has he returned to his old billionaire/crimelord double life? Presenting a friendly face to the public while scheming in secret? Since hes clearly a major player in the DCU, Id like this cleared up before I see him in anymore stories. Read Full Review

    Also interesting: Its nice to see Grummett taking on the improved and deepened Superboy. Conner clearly is on the verge of manhood. And both of those epilogues, while not moving the plot forward very much, remind us of the ongoing subplots of this title, with a nice change-up on the trademark Johns-style cliffhanger.

    This is solid comic from start to finish. It has no faults to see, but the best bits come from Robin and Superboy and the last two epilogues: Lex Luthor and Dr. Light are coming! Read Full Review
