Teen Titans #23.2 Review and *SPOILERS*

Striking the Deathblow to DeathStroke.

So who out there wants a re-imagined origin for DeathStroke?  Well it doesn't matter you'll get it anyway.

What can I say about this issue?  The only thing that comes to mind is "I don't get it."  We're given a back and forth story about DeathStroke's origin, what he did before he became the terminator, and how he used to work with his first son Grant, until his death.  While we see DeathStroke about to assassinate someone in the present.  Who is this someone?  I wish I could tell you, but they don't say in the entire issue.  I don't know if you have to be up to speed on DeathStroke's cancelled title, or another cancelled title Team 7, and if that's the case then I am sadly in the dark.  So I guess that's all I can give you, besides the fact that apparently the reason DeathStroke takes these jobs is to earn money to keep his new family in the dark, and safe from what he does.

Remember that old saying?  "Every issue is somebodies first issue."  Well hopefully with this issue that is never the case, because if it is the reader will get a cluttered story, that will make no sense.  I read this issue a few times, and still didn't get the whole story.  Now I'm not completely informed on the whole New 52 DeathStroke story, but I figured I could read this and walk away with something.  Nope.  Awful Teen Titans issue, and is the first Villain's Month issue I really see no use for.

  1. So there was nothing about Terra in this issue at all? (Last we saw her she was his unwilling employee, like the cartoon but less stupid, slightly.)
