Teen Titans is gonna get awesome again!

Sean McKeever is going to be writing it!

http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=112581
Beechen’s move to the new miniseries does come with a cost – he had to give up Teen Titans, where he was recently named as the series’ new writer, stepping in for the departing Geoff Johns. Moving over to that series will be another member of the Countdown team, Sean McKeever.

McKeever will join Johns, Marv Wolfman, Mike McKone, George Perez, Todd Nauck and other creators for August’s Teen Titans #50 “jam issue,” and then head off on his own with September’s #51 with artist Randy Green.

“Sean’s is able to write in that great younger voice that the Teen Titans book really needs and a great sensibility for the characters, and again, like Adam, with his time working on Countdown, he was able to learn a lot about the interaction between them. When Teen Titans came free, Sean just seemed the most logical choice. Sean will be writing two of our team books now, with Titans and Birds of Prey, and he brings a great voice to both those books.”


So awesome.

    Jesus, why couldn't the stupid fucks at Marvel find him a regular high-profile gig to keep him around? Heinberg's never coming back - give McKeever Young Avengers (and Runaways when Whedon jumps ship) and hey presto: instant win. But nooooooo. Grrrr.

    Marvel has seemingly turned into the EA of the comic book world. Constantly dropping the ball.

    Yeah because it's not like DC hasn't been plagued by lateness, with Detective Comics getting outsold by fucking Moon Knight, and Marvel snatching up numerous creators from them, such as the Seven Soldiers artists, PAD, and Loeb (talent aside, the dude sells books). And I actually like DC better, but really, let's not make this into a Marvel v. DC thing because it's fucking retarded.

    Anyways, getting back on-topic, there's an image floating around showing the new Titans line-up, with Robin, Miss Martian, Supergirl, Wonder Girl, Kid Devil, Ravager, and Blue Beetle as the new addition. I think it's likely that DC decided they needed to boost Jaime's profile to keep his book afloat, or they've finally decided to cancel it before they lose any more money on it, and this is just an effort to keep the character in the spotlight elsewhere.

    I'm kind of torn on the new character Forerunner. On the one hand, I love new characters and I think introducing them in a high profile back-up is the perfect way to give them a little attention. On the other hand, a blue, pointy-eared space pirate that kind of reminds me of Nocturne from Exiles doesn't really seem all that interesting.

    But hey, anything with more Adam Strange, Starfire, and Buddy is A-okay with me.

    Or it's the natural progression of the character. It doesn't make sense that he wouldn't be in the Titans. He's powerful and he wouldn't say no

    Supergirl, however, is unnecessary with Wonder Girl + Miss Martian

    Jaime's been pretty adamant about not wanting to get into all the crazy superheroic stuff, and he generally doesn't think too highly of superheroes after being left for dead on an exploding satellite. Throughout his series he's been focused on protecting his home, his family, and his friends. Hell, right now he's tied up in all that Reach business. He doesn't need to go off fighting other peoples' battles when he's got plenty to fight on the home front. I don't see him taking off to San Francisco to hang out with the daughter of a supervillain, a demon sidekick washout, and Batman Jr. without a really good reason. Most likely it'll be tied into the whole, "gathering allies to fight the Reach" thing, or Batman will ask him to join for some reason.

    But yeah, the book sliding down the charts to 18,000 monthly copies from 60,000 at its launch probably doesn't need the added exposure.

    Also, and I say this every time there's a change in the Titans' line-up, where the fuck is (Son of) Vulcan?

    Huh?

    It's been Robin, Ravager, Wonder Girl, Kid Devil, Raven and Cyborg since the OYL jump. Well, after the initial "You know this isn't the final team" thing

    The only new additions are Jericho and Miss Martian

    but I want them to bring the Wonder Twins back

    Kinda wonder why Supergirl is on there with Wondergirl and Miss Martian already on there. Seems unnecessary. Reminds me of when JSA had Captain Marvel, Powergirl and Black Adam all on the team at the same time (not to mention Atom Smasher).

    Maybe it's to give Supergirl more exposure?

    Fantastic news. The two Teen Titans issues Beechen scripted were terrible, the dialogue was just complete shit. I've never read any of McKeever's stuff but I've heard a lot about how good he is.

    I'm worried that Cyborg and Beast Boy don't appear in the Teen Titans #50 cover though. Perhaps they (along with Nightwing and Donna Troy) can establish a new Titans team or something? Batman's going to be leading the Outsiders pretty soon so Nightwing should have some spare time.

    Btw, Kid Devil is fucking awesome.

    The current JLA consists of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Black Canary, Red Arrow (Arsenal), Hal Jordan, Black Lightning, Hawkgirl, Red Tornado and Jynx.

    So it looks like Jaime's not on the team. That's okay. After reading the issues of his series that I've missed (#9-#14), I must rethink my post before. I don't think he'd quite fit on the team. He has way too many supporting characters in his book to be on a team. I don't mean that his supporting characters suck. In fact, I love them. It's just that he already has a "team" going on.

    But it's cool that he's mixing it up with them.

    I still don't like that Supergirl's on the team. This one hasn't done anything to make me like her at all.
