The Titans have moved to Gotham, the Red Hood is on the loose, and Hawk is dead. The team has a lot of problems facing them, and for some reason or other, they split up to deal with them.
ason, like in the comics, came back to life (we still don’t know how), became the Red Hood, and began operating as a flat-out supervillain. Worse, a smart supervillain, trained by one of the world’s greatest tacticians, who knows the Titans inside and out. There’s a lot of trouble coming for the team…
The third season of Titans wasted no time upping the stakes, leading off with the murder of Jason Todd, loosely adapted from the classic comic book collection “A Death in the Family,”…
The Titans, a live action series that started on the now-defunct DC Universe and migrated to HBO Max along with Doom Patrol, returns for their third season. Season two ended with the tragic (and poorly written) death of Donna Troy, AKA Wonder Girl.
I have been consistently impressed by the writing and world building of Young Justice. The evolving story and huge cast of characters is a delicate juggling act and I think they do it very well.
The holidays are coming as the Young Justice crew deals with assorted problems in various locations. We see domestic developments in Star City, problems with the new meta-kids in Taos, and an unexpected attack with some great misdirection.
After the mid-season break, Young Justice goes on with their story. They have a lot of moving parts, and the settings range from a few familiar places on Earth to distant planets and space stations. The conspiracy against Earth’s metahumans, aided by villains and alien gods, gets deeper and more complicated, and they even work in a really obscure DC Character, as we see the spread of the bad guys’ “Influence.”
we get a lot of attention on Gar Logan, Beast Boy (although I’ll always prefer his Changeling codename) in this episode. We see a recounting of his tragic past, which is even more tragic on Young Justice (impressive, considering he’s still somewhere in his teens).
So far, most of this season has focused on events in Markovia, with a variation of the comic book version of the Outsiders origin. In “Eminent Threat,” we see the various stories move forward.
The Titans end their second season with a lot of death, chaos, and destruction. Long-time fans will probably not care for this, which brings an end to their sub-par adaptation of the classic Judas Contract storyline.
