Wow...that's the most awesome Beast Boy moment I've personally ever seen.

Ugh, AGAIN? Two comics companies get the Monkey King wrong in one week?

Hanuman was the GENERAL of the Monkey forces under King Sugreeva, and also under Prince Rama. Sun Wukong the Monkey King was the word-of-mouth Chinese equivalent of Hanuman, you clods!

Yep, kind of like Oberon is the word-of-mouth descendant of Andvare the dwarf from the Völsungasaga.

Heh. There's been a bit of mythology fail in this entire arc, starting with "Rankor" being randomly based in an Indus Valley site.

Ooh man...finally a decent angst-less new Titan in the roster...wiped out outside any event...

Mmmh... I wouldn't bet on that.. :(
Or she would be on the new book's cover...

Hopefully it will be a multi-issue cover (like one of those making a fresco we have to put books next to each other to see the whole pictures) showcasing a bigger character roster. And then we'll have Miss Martian and Soltice still on the team that way..only, not shown yet.

*wishful thinking*

Well, we found out that wasn't the cover, like, a week ago. They released a new version of it a few days after that was shown.

And hey, solstice wasn't killed horribly yet, cause this seemed like a perfect opportunity to kill her off for shock value and you let it bye. Good DC, you deserve a cookie.

...Is it sad that I'm praising the comic for NOT killing off a new character for shock value? Like my standards have slipped so much I'm just glad they AREN'T doing terrible things to people?

Man, Kon got shirtless pretty quickly in this. It's like I'm watching the Young Justice cartoon or something.

Also, I'm fairly certain that gorillas don't have tails.


Yay, Solstice!

"Also, I'm fairly certain that gorillas don't have tails."

Most gorillas aren't green either--I think Gar just added it in.

Can he do that? Is that legitimately part of his powerset? Because if so, then I am massively disappointed in DC for not having him turn into octo-gorillas or flying landsharks.

ladytimedramon: (Sexy Gar)
From: [personal profile] ladytimedramon
During one period of time, Gar has shown that he can turn into "fantasy animals" (and once or twice he's turned into alien species), so I'd say that he can add a tail if he wanted.

auggie18: (Ack!)
From: [personal profile] auggie18
...he should do that way more often. That sounds freaking awesome. It's always really annoying when they show you some cool aspect of a character's power only for it never to be mentioned again. (Like this or Nightcrawler's invisibility power.)

From: [personal profile] jlbarnett
and in the Titans Tomorrow thing he's able to use the abilities of multiple animals. He turns into a ram to ram someone and then splits into a second ram using a single celled organism's reproductive traits.

Wait... Beastboy can alter his morphs? Because I am pretty sure there are no 8 foot muscle monkeys like that (it's note an ape because he has a tail). I know he can morph into animals and even alien animals, but that seems like a stretch...

ladytimedramon: (Sexy Gar)
From: [personal profile] ladytimedramon
I don't think it's that far a stretch that he couldn't. He's done all sorts of "fantasy" creatures...

More likely an artist who needs to go back to studying his animals.

Looking at the head, I don't think this is supposed to be a gorilla with a tail. I just typed "monkey" into google images, and Gar's form seems more like a hybridization of many monkey species on steroids.

Though if you look at the last panel of this section, he appears more like a panther than a monkey.
