Lol true. And that actually would have been a nice character beat for Damien, perhaps might have even given him a little more depth in the Titans run. And tbh I think Percy for the most part is doing a crap job with the Teen Titans books, so I'm glad Scott Snyder in kinda taking control of most stories rolling out of No Justice, which I just happened to finish reading as I'm typing this. But you're right, I will give him props for hitting home that Beast Boy loses people close to him a lot, like, more than your typical comic book superhero, or they turn out to be psychopaths working for and banging your worst enemy. Either way, percy he brought his parents back to show it, and he didn't have to. He could have left them forever forgotten but he didn't. And I thought that was pretty telling because they were the first meaningful people that he lost. I guess what I'm saying is, I'm just longing for a story where Beast Boy FINALLY grows stronger from his grief rather than just sadly mope over it for a while and then go back to class clown. I mean heck, the goddamn Batman exists his parents were gunned down in an ally one night. DC has always SHOWN that Beast Boy was hurting over his losses, but they just never go anywhere with it from there. Gar's loss was never really used as anything more than a sad backstory or exhibition for him. Their deaths never really drove Gar to be a hero, to be anything really. He never even really tried honor their memory somehow. It just seems like he was brought into this life at a young age and wants people to fill the void of his family, and it's less about doing the right thing and being a hero, even though he still holds those values because that's how he was raised. This is another reason I think he needs his own mini-series to finally make all of this clear and show Gar accepting his grief and growing stronger from it in an organic way. He definitely wouldn't handle his grief the way Batman would, but I imagine he has to handle it at some point.

Oh boy. WELP- like I said, I'll take any excuse as long as we get him back. I imagine we will anyway because YJ is coming back and lately TV has been influencing a lot of comic book decisions. But anyway, I'm suspiciously interested in seeing Bendis' take on Superman.

Also, sorry about all these typos. Sometimes I'm just too lazy to proofread. But I could have sworn I didn't make most of those grammar and spelling mistakes. Maybe it's just my keyboard lol.

Lol true. And that actually would have been a nice character beat for Damien, perhaps might have even given him a little more depth in the Titans run. And tbh I think Percy for the most part is doing a crap job with the Teen Titans books, so I'm glad Scott Snyder in kinda taking control of most stories rolling out of No Justice, which I just happened to finish reading as I'm typing this. But you're right, I will give him props for hitting home that Beast Boy loses people close to him a lot, like, more than your typical comic book superhero, or they turn out to be psychopaths working for and banging your worst enemy.

I guess what I'm saying is, I'm just longing for a story where Beast Boy FINALLY grows stronger from his grief rather than just sadly mope over it for a while and then go back to class clown.
