In the aftermath of their battle with Superboy, the Teen Titans make a horrifying discovery: Kid Flash has been knocked out of synch! If they are going to save their teammate, the badly beaten and battered teens need to sneak into the New York branch of S.T.A.R. Labs which means that this issue guest-stars none other than Virgil Hawkins, a.k.a. Static! But if the team was hoping to use the lab for some downtime, they are going to be disappointed, because now they must battle a new, young team of supervillains known only as 2.0! All this and the debut of Kid Flash's new costume!

    The Teen Titans are just about an official team now. They survived their first major battle (barely) and have already gained the attention of the authorities. With Kid Flash's powers going out of whack, we get a little more information as to who he is and where he might come from. Lobdell is planting seeds left and right in building up future threats that should arise shortly. Usually teams get together and everyone is happy but because this book if dealing with kids, it's expected and makes sense that they don't all get along perfectly. Seeing how they will function together is going to be part of the fun. For an issue that seems meant to give a little downtime after a big fight, we still get plenty of action and suspense here.

    The Ravagers still is a bit of a mystery to me, and Red Hood and the Outlaws has been a major let down month in and month out, but each issue of Teen Titans or Superboy lulls me into a sense of comfort with the direction Lobdell is taking these heroes. Read Full Review

    Is Teen Titans #6 the greatest thing since sliced bread? No, definitely not. But, that doesn't mean that it's without significant worth. This issue is still extremely easy for readers, young and/or new, to pick up and enjoy. The characters are coming into their own, and the team dynamics are rock solid. Booth's illustrations offer plenty of aesthetic beauty to the story as well. The developments in this issue may not be up to the standard that the title has set for itself, but it still serves as a satisfying helping of comic book comfort food. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Feb 24, 2012

    Lobdell does a good job illuminating the characters throughout this issue, teasing powers, subplots and interactions while building up the team dynamic. Virgil Hawkins added to the mix brings some stability to the team by offering a connection to the broader universe beyond their membership. Able to be enjoyed independently of the tussle with Superboy, this issue certainly takes on a more impressive sheen when placed in the context of the universe "Superboy" #6 provides. The Titans are rooted in the DC Universe nicely but need more of a purpose than is found in this issue. The team is coming together, so maybe from here their purpose will be more clearly defined.

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Feb 26, 2012

    So, in conclusion, we get an issue that basically revolves around getting Kid Flash a new costume and putting the kids up against a foe that isn't Superboy. Unfortunately, the issues persistent over the past few months have stuck with Teen Titans, making it more of a chore to read than fun. Read Full Review
