Was cleaning up a closet last weekend and came upon my cache of original Teen Titans floppies. Here's a little treat from 1972, "Through These Doors Pass the Bravest Titans of Them All," or as I like to think of it, "That time Donna shaved her head and crossdressed for justice!" I've got six pages of an 18-page story, and therefore am cutting the Mal sequence down to a mere preview image.

That's Mal having a flashback to a childhood beat-down, to explain his heretofore unheard-of fear of wide open spaces, which he must overcome in order to repair a lunar landing guidance module.

Say what, now? )

So there you go - not bad for an ish where nobody even makes it into costume!

Now I've tried to be open minded about the DCnU, I really have (to the point of REALLY annoying some people I didn't meant to in the process)

I've given the new Blue Beetle a chance, but it's taking an awfully long, and rather over-violent time to get anywhere as promising as Jaime's original run was.

I've accepted that we'll never see a decent handover from Dick's mentoring of Damian to Bruce taking him on, and that Dick Grayson has had his entire circus past basically turned from "Idyllic childhood" to "Narrowly escaped hell on Earth" and that he was apparently 16 when he first appeared as Robin (which defeats the whole bloody point of the character IMHO) Okay, maybe "accepted" is putting it a bit strongly for that one... but I'm working on it, honest)

I'm resigned to the fact that the unique Oracle has become a generic Batgirl.

I've accepted that the Teen Titans I knew and grew up with now never happened, or didn't happen in anything like the same way it did before. And that Wally West and Garth are unknown quantities now... along with a host of others.

And I'm also aware of how bizarre some of the "We have to make these the iconic versions of the characters" choices have been, when other media with vastly larger viewerships than any comic has had in decades are cheerfully misximg and matching the history to their hearts content, and making it WORK.

But there were some things I thought might be perhaps too low profile to be messed with THAT much,

BTW If you thought Harley's makeover was a bit much, just wait until you see this...
