* BrokenBase: The ''Super Sons of Tomorrow'' arc was one for a number of reasons. [[spoiler:Although advertised as a ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}''-''ComicBook/SuperSons''-''[[ComicBook/TeenTitansRebirth Teen Titans]]'' crossover, Superman did little in the arc due to being incapacitated by Future Tim Drake early in the arc. In addition, Damian and Jon are reduced to plot devices for much of the story due to being Savior's targets while the Titans bicker about what to do with Jon after seeing his destructive potential. Future Tim, now going by "Savior", is still a one-note CreatorsPet with even more over-the-top, [[{{Narm}} narmy]] dialogue than his last appearance, with Beast Boy and Raven practically worshiping the ground he walks on even after he blatantly tells them that he'd be perfectly okay with murdering them along with Jon and Damian if they stand in his way. Even the arrival of the Titans Tomorrow versions of Connor Kent, Cassandra Sandsmark, and Bart Allen were essentially glorified [[TheCameo cameos]] as they affect practically nothing outside of trying to save Jon at the very end even though they were billed as being Savior's allies, refusing to provide even basic hints about their identities and statuses in the present that could tease their return out of fear of polluting the timeline. The one thing that was well-received by both critics and fans was the development of Jon and Damian's relationship, which was praised as being natural and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments incredibly touching.]]]]

* NarmCharm: One point of praise given to Jorge Jimenez was his ability to draw silly looking characters like the [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/marvel_dc/images/f/fa/Time_Commander_01.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130505141247 Time Commander]] as [[https://i0.wp.com/batman-news.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/IMG_0098.jpg?resize=405%2C789&quality=85&strip=info&ssl=1 legitimately imposing villains without changing their costumes]].

* HypeBacklash: Thankfully averted. After months of delays, author changes, and other issues, many were afraid that the comic would suffer from this. Luckily, with Tomasi signing on board, the first issue received glowing reviews across the board with the second issue being of the same quality.

Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of piggy-backing, Damian doesn't seem to notice that he's somewhat enjoying doing that in spite of declaring that he would never want to. Not to mention the aforementioned incident on the way back to the Kent Farm where Damian claims he needs a ride back to Gotham only to reveal he could call a bike to his location any time he wanted.


* AwesomeArt: As most review sites have pointed out, Jimenez has done an ''amazing'' job with the art in the series, with every page being full of color, life and action.

** Some of Jon's lines can come off as cliche, like "He's not a ''weapon'', he's my ''friend!''" But they come off totally naturally since he's a ten year old kid who loves anime and video games.
