    Black Nerd Problems - Morgan Hampton Sep 15, 2021

    You know these characters so well already, so the book doesn't need to waste any time introducing you. And Scott has a good handle on them as well. Nobody feels out of place, and their characteristics are so well defined. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Cam Lipham Sep 15, 2021

    This issue takes most of its time for setup for this core premise, but boy does it make me excited for more. The plot hook is dangled just precisely enough that I legitimately can't tell what's going on yet. There's a couple things I thought might have been happening, particularly in regards to Superboy's adventures over inSuicide Squad, and that still might be a factor (see: the T-shirt look), but nothing is concrete enough for me to call it this early. I'm super pumped to read more, particularly in regards to Conner's situation. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jenna Anderson Sep 15, 2021

    Titans United is a unique beast, one that aims to both embody the roster and character dynamics of HBO Max's Titans, and tell a story that fits more in tone with the modern DC Comics universe. Just based on this issue, it's unclear to see if that balance will be consistently met, but there's just enough that keeps the premise intriguing. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 14, 2021

    The ending brings in more Titans as well as a very unexpected villain, and makes me think this could be a fun, fast-paced comic. I just wish I knew a little better which versions of the characters I was supposed to be following right now, because it doesn't quite sync up with any version. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Sep 14, 2021

    TITANS UNITED #1 leans heavily on the nostalgic and plays hard and fast towards fans loving the TITANS TV Series. However, the story and substance behind the new series seemed lacking and were ultimately uneventful. Yet, this art team truly elevated my score and ignited my interest in at least another issue.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 14, 2021

    Where this works into continuity might be a bit of a puzzler, but beyond that idea and some of the ways that the characters are portrayed, this is a cool book that seems to be telling an interesting story that I'm into and thankfully, the book looks amazing all the way through. I just hope that we get something important here with this roster and not just some way of appealing to the HBO Titans fans because I love these characters and I want something more than cross-media synergy being the focus overall.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 17, 2021

    Titans United #1 was a good start for this mini-series. The chemistry between the Titans was a refreshing change of pace as we get more of a straightforward superhero adventure. If you are looking for a classic Teen Titans adventure this is a comic book worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 14, 2021

    Titans United is off to a slow start, but Scott has a good enough feel for the characters that it should play out well. With Luis confident art, this has the makings of a solid TV spin-off mini-series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Sep 14, 2021

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Sep 18, 2021

    AIPT - David Brooke Sep 14, 2021

    This is a well-managed superhero book that hasn't quite found its hook yet. Titans United #1 could be a stand-out book, especially for Titans fans, but you may need to wait for the second issue to be sure if this is a trade waiting situation or just plain skippable. Read Full Review

    I didn't feel this. I liked that Red Hood had his guns (even though the cover originally showed him with his guns too and then DC chickened out and replaced them with swords just as they did on the RHATO #50 cover) but apart from that the way he was written reverted him back to a place he hasn't been in some time. Nightwing isn't very compelling either, in fact none of the characters, other than Beast Boy, are and the art is very mediocre. And I get that Superboy is trying to channel Superman but that "nobody's average" line seemed pretty childish, like I hate to break it to you, buddy, but some people are average and there's no shame in it. I don't know, I feel like this was put out solely to promote the Titans show. Which, by the way, eve more

    It was not bad, moderately interesting. For those who wonder what Jason Todd does in this series there is something called marketing, and if you did not read the idea of ​​this series it is to include and at the same time Jason in Titans just like the series, but to Jason but not with the same Titans story. I do not find much sense other than to attract Red Hood fans to buy this, but for my taste they should return the series and I hope they will soon, it is tiring to go from comic to comic to buy it especially with stories that are decent To bad, but if they are destroying Batman-Bruce, making Tim bisexual with a very mediocre story and Nightwing a fanfiction, I can't wait long.

    Melhor que o esperado. Troque o infantil Red Hood por Roy Harper que as coisas ficam melhores(serio, ninguém quer uma criança se achando adulto por usar armas).

    I enjoyed this issue so far. A good strong debut issue that has good art and engaging dialogue. Dont really know why Red hood is in here, but maybe Urban Legends is canon.

    My baby Jason in a Titans series! it's great! I'm getting a lot from Jason Todd and it was about time DC recognized the potential of this magnificent character.

    Finally a good cooperation team. But the plot itself is still boring, let me feel a little bit upset

    It's interesting to see an adaptation that deviates from the source, but in a good way. Here we have a comic that seems to be based on, or at the very least inspired by, the HBO Max Titans series as it features the same lineup of main characters. I may not have fallen in love with the show, but I can definitely see myself reading the rest of this series.

    lol Red Hood fans actually want that pedo-bait writer Scott Lobdell back?

    I like how well presented this is, but I really hate how this is mainly a cash grab for Titan's 3rd season.

    A classic start to what I hope is a great titans run. This feels like the titans I know & love. Every character feels like themselves but what I enjoy the most is that the team is presented as a well-oiled machine. I can feel the history & years of history with this team, even with the addition of Red hood. The obvious outlier, because of his comicbook history, still blends well with the others. He doesn't overshadow Dick (since they're both former robins,) he's sarcastic & the usual asshole. Is his personality too much? Maybe but I'm hoping that gets trimmed down as more issue come out. I appreciate the artwork, even though is one panel where Red Hood & superboy are standing next to each other. They literally look the same in terms of head more

    Uff this could be something interesting, but they got lost in some point here, DC needs to do something, this type of writing is the reason why DC's comics are not reaching the real clients that is the young adult public, it is good to see Red Hood back with his suit and weapons, from there on out there is not much to see.

    I have read bad things and this, not that he tries but since the characterization of each of the characters is bad and stupid, Gar seems to be saved a bit. The fight with Cyclops is exhausting. If Scott wrote this with your butt, I congratulate him, but if you wrote it with your brain, the best writer should dedicate himself to washing dishes or something else.
