All About Red X…

The books opens with Red X seemingly…

Likes Nightwing and Starfire are back together with Batgirl / Oracle looming large in this moment as she does in Nightwing’s own solo ongoing series.

We then get Nightwing and Cyborg kibitzing including frat boy talk about Starfire and Batgirl.

Nightwing finds his missing Red X mask on…

…on a new Red X who is apparently stealing data from the Teen Titans Academy super computer.

 

Bolt gets her bladerunners and is prepared to assist as Nightwing does some sleuthing.

Bolt is also stalked by someone from her past who want seem to let her go; a Mr. Smith.

An assembly for the students is next as…

…we pivot pack to the near future with Red X and Bolt who…

…are confronted by the Suicide Squad for the x-over between both series.

Someone forgot to tell the artist that Peacemaker’s helmet is a bit more subtle now.

The Pulse:

Interesting way of revealing more about the team’s resident speedster Bolt in this issue; I love that she’s handicapable and a role model to readers. Red X continues to loom large. Nightwing is portrayed as playboy it seems as he’s having “relations” with Starfire in this book and flirting with Batgirl / Oracle in his own solo book; not a fan of that portrayal nor Cyborg and Nightwing gossiping about Starfire’s jealously over Batgirl.  Art was great for this issue; a fun one at that. 8 out of 10.
