4 for the first story, Tamaki (as always, I should add) comes with the most stupid explanation for the mystery set up in the first issue and the dialogue is all cringey. Red Hood's story needed more context given that it's over in two issues but still, it was interesting.

Before the New Teen Titans, there were the original Teen Titans.

I'm so sick of this AU. So far removed from canon it's hard to read. Joker's characterization is possibly the worst that could have been done. All for the sake of a romance nobody really cares about anymore, and nobody ever needed.

It's just an elseworld, and doesn't have to obey any main continuity rules. It's free, and bashing it exclusively for taking its liberties and differentiating itself from the main timeline is a non argument. It's just pitiful to discredit something's existence just because it doesn't fit your safe space canon bubble.

Afre - Jan 27, 2021

Yes you've said that you hate this version of the character, I can understand why, that is not my problem here. And I'm not really arguing, I'm just asking that if you are big Joker fan and the main reason for you to read this is because it has Joker in it, but this version of the character is too OOC for you and you hate everything about it, why continue reading it? I'm a massive Spidey fan myself but I usually don't read comics about him if I don't like that version of the character.

If big stand alone elseworld events like Future State exist to experiment and take established characters in new unpredictable directions, what's the reason for keeping the very same writer who's responsible for their main continuity entries? Wouldn't it be a good opportunity to bring in fresh blood who could do something new and fresh with them, even if only for 1 or 2 issues?

I was really looking forward to see what that had here for the Legion and I was very disappointed when I opened it up to see that it was written by Bendis. His run on the Legion was awful, so it didn't give me great expectations here, but I was willing to give it a try. Then, I see that the art is by Riley Rossmo and as usual, his art is just awful. I'm not sure how he has a job drawing comics. more

So you give this issue a 1.5 but rate Red Hood and The Outlaw 10/10? Are you genuinely braindead or purposely acting this stupid?

I still like the Dark Detective storyline. It is not groundbreaking or anything, but good enough for me.

As for the Jason part, it would be better if the art wasn't so lackluster. I don't mind simple art but this one felt like the artist stopped working on it midway.

Most people liked the first issue of this comic. I didn't. I called it empty and devoid of any real plot, and it looks like in an ironic way I was correct, since even this issue doesn't bother addressing its existence.
