Omen of Things To Come for Teen Titans

from DC Source blog:
Just what happens after “Deathtrap”? Well, lots. In #72 alone, Wonder Girl finds her leadership challenged, the team faces the Fearsome Five and well, you get this as a first page:

[visual of coffin with a Titans "T"]

Hm. Ominous. Let’s check in with TEEN TITANS editor Brian Cunningham for some more details. Take it away, Brian:

“Which fallen Teen Titan lies in that coffin?

You’ll get your first glimpse come June 17, when Teen Titans #72 hits stores. It’s part one of a three-part opus that will literally shatter this group in ways you won’t expect. I know that statement can tend to come off as overblown hype, but believe you me, it’s gut-check time for this bunch.

I’m willing to bet my prize 1976 DC calendar that Titans fans will be pretty stoked when they read Bryan Q. Miller and Joe Bennett’s brutal three-issue story for our teen heroes. It’s relentless in how much punishment is dished out. And I’m talking punishment on so many levels — between team members, between good guys and bad, and even between bad guys and bad.

Grueling choices must be made throughout, and all actions have dire consequences. Some, as you can plainly see, are much more horrible than others.

I mean, c’mon, I wouldn’t bet my ‘76 DC calendar on just anything!”

    I would like to officially state that I am sick and tired of stories that 'shatter' the team. That's all we've had for, what, the last year?

    That's the type of crap that makes me wish Time Warner, Paul Levitz, and/or Jenette Kahn never hired Dan Didio in the first place.

    $#@*in' traitors

    Poor Titans.

    When was the last time the Titans actually dealt with any real Villains? Criminals? Save a city? A town? A small retirement co-op??

    There are so many good stories that could be told with this team and instead we end up with horrible self-referential disasters at every turn.

    Here's an idea, how about we STOP shattering the team? How about we treat them with some RESPECT and let them be HEROES for a change?!?

    This cover could basically be used for EVERY SINGLE Teen Titans issue. It's a revolting situation.

    I'm rolling my eyes again. DC has systematically taken away everything I've enjoyed about both groups of Titans, and what they've replaced them with has just been less interesting than the last.
