What Happened: We start this issue with Starfire, Donna and Raven preparing to move out of the Titans base. Beast Boy decides to make one final attempt to make things work with Raven, but she shoots him down(as usual). While Beast Boy is pleading his case, Donna walks over and pretty much puts an end to BB's attempts at romance. Cyborg tries to consul his friend, but BB doesn't want to hear it, and when Cyborg brings up Terra, BB really gets steamed. Eventually, BB's agent calls him and BB heads to a Sci-Fi and Fantasy convention, which just puts him in a worse mood. BB sits through the stupidity for a few hours before another guest at the convention(a z-list villain by the name of Dr. Double X)decides to wear Deathstroke's mask to excite the crowd. This doesn't sit well with BB and he forces the guy to take off the mask before he finally storms away. While flying through the air, BB spots the Teen Titans battling some villain named Cinderblock. BB swoops in and lends the Titans a hand, helping them defeat the loser, but taking off before the media arrives, so as to not steal the Teen Titans thunder. Later, we find BB back in his hotel room, watching a news broadcast detailing the Titans defeat of Cinderblock. The news broadcaster mentions that there seems to be no adults supervising the Teen Titans, and this issue ends with the listless Beast Boy looking out his hotel window at Titans Tower off in the distance.
What I thought: When I saw this was going to be a spotlight on Beast Boy issue I nearly didn't bother to read it! I've never been a fan of BB, he's always been a shallow annoyance to me. However, this issue wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It wasn't like it was mind-blowingly good or anything, but the fact that it was readable made it WAY better then I thought it was going to be. So it looks as if Beast Boy is going to become the adult supervisor of the Teen Titans... That just seems wrong on so many levels... But, maybe that's just what Beast Boy's character needs. A change in direction. Maybe this will turn BB from an annoyance into a reasonably likable character... Or maybe not.
Score: 7 1/2 out of 10.Not too obvious, right...
