YMMV / Titans Hunt (2015)

Go To

  • Author's Saving Throw: The main point of this story arc is to renovate the Teen Titans history that has been missing in the post-Flashpoint DC Universe.
  • Broken Base:
    • The lack of Wally West has fans feeling as if DC has a personal grudge against the character. It's noted that the current iteration of Wally West is 12 years old, making it difficult to incorporate him as part of a team of adults in the early 20s. Some point out that the grave on the first cover most likely refers to Wally. ( It doesn't.) This has further divided the fanbase between those who at least appreciate the mere acknowledgement of Wally, and those who are pissed that DC's sidelining Wally in the story that could have "fixed" him. The original Wally West, deaged to his late teens/early 20's returns in DC Universe Rebirth #1, and will be joining the older Titans team.

    • Roy falling off the wagon has many fans of Red Hood/Arsenal demanding to know where Jason is during all this. Those who loathe that series, however, are thoroughly enjoying that Jason's not involved after spending four years and going being Roy's only consistent friend.
  • Character Rerailment: Donna Troy and Roy Harper, who have been derailed in their own books (Wonder Woman and Red Hood and the Outlaws, respectively), with the former being an evil misandrist and the latter being an immature Adult Child who repeatedly makes bad jokes. By the time the Rebirth series happens, both characters are far more stable and likeable.
  • Critical Research Failure: In the first issue alone, we have Dick Grayson holding a gun, which is something he does NOT do in Grayson except for at target practice (which he misses the target on PURPOSE so he never has to use it). Although the Grayson posters has him hold guns so that says plenty on this topic.
    • Tempest had killed people in this yet if you have read Aquaman, you would know he really is only a villain due to fighting against Aqauman, not an actual bad guy. Then again, the people he's killed aren't exactly innocent.

    • Also Donna Troy seems to be more tolerable of men but that may be a good thing to get wrong.
  • It Was His Sled: Because of how closely Titans Hunt connects to DC Universe: Rebirth #1 and how promotion for the following Titans ongoing requires this story and the special to be read prior to its first issue, the identity of the forgotten tenth Titan is pretty much a given for any latecomers picking up this series.
  • Win Back the Crowd: For Teen Titans fans who were put off by the disastrous runs of Red Hood and the Outlaws and Teen Titans in the New 52.

How well does it match the trope?
