I'm very happy that the Private HIVE arc continued. Some nice themes came into play. I liked that the Teen Titans' story came full circle with references to "Divide and Conquer" and "Final Exam" (one of which was the first episode produced, the other the first one aired in the US).
So Speedy joined the JLU? Was that a reference to "Patriot Act" from JLU? But Teen Titans isn't in the DCAU, otherwise Robin would be Nightwing. Who were the 5 new Titans on the last page? Were 3 of them Flamebird, Mirage and Lilith? Also, did Robin give Private HIVE the chicken pox at the end? And why can't I stop thinking that that was a "Heart of Ice" reference?
With the Titans East one member short, I wonder if anyone is standing in for Speedy. Ravager, perhaps? This was a good issue. It would have been a fitting finale, but I'm so happy this isn't the end. At the end, I thought Robin was going to announce the creation of the Titans North and South!
Why did he single out Wonder Girl, Red Star and a couple of others at the end anyway? The way Robin addressed Red Star half way through the issue was pretty funny. I think Robin is jealous of Red Star spending time with Starfire!
This was a good issue, but not as captivating as the previous one. Still very good, though. I'm hoping that we will get more personality out of background characters like Kole in future issues. Lastly, is #51 coming out on the 16th of January or the 23rd?
