    The Titans hit the big 5-0! When Robin’s out of commission, it’s up to the rest of the team to gather everyone and anyone who’s ever been a Titan to help save the day!

    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? :eek: 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? :D 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! :p

    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?

    Still haven't picked my comics up yet...but I'm glad to hear this one has nods to past continuity. And I've enjoyed the Private Hive arc more than I thought I would.

    Where did the Teen Titans Go! comics start? because I've been debating with myself on whether to buy them or not since I've already got the Teen Titans comics written by Geoff Johns.

    They're pretty different. The superior is propably the Geoff Johns ones, but TTG! is still pretty fun. If you want to start collecting, start here. That is the first volume, containing the first 5 comics. There were 6 volumes so far, 5 with 5 comics each, and the latest one with 7. Here's a list, with covers for the digests and other info on them, including the specific comic stories that are included: http://www.titansgo.net/books.php?cat=5

    Enjoy!

    I enjoyed this issue more than #49 because it just had a better blend of action and humor and characters and whatnot. I loved Robin with chicken pox in his pjs. So funny to see him, all stern and serious, and completely vulnerable.

    I was, however, under the impression that this issue would make mention of the notion that the Teen Titans watch Tiny Titans (the new comic) on tv as their favorite show. I guess that idea was axed or something.

    I did not expect Private Hive to turn back to the dark side, so that was a nice twist.

    Anyone else dying for a Wonder Girl solo or origin story other than me....

    The Tiny Titans thing actually happened in issue 50 of the mainstream comic, not here. As for Wonder Girl, that would be cool.

    I think it's merely a wink to fans. The way I see it, JLU and TT continuity exist in different worlds, but they have similar moments.

    I liked this issure, especially the cover, which is a tribue to the Marv Wolfman comic book series.

    I really hope the book doesn't go too far into this Unlimited concept. The way I see it, there are still a few stories left to tell without getting into The Bushido Tales or the Red Star Chronicles.

    And those would be? So glad you asked :)

    -Terra. We need more than just an origin story. We need to know why she didn't remember or didn't seem to remember being a Titan. Maybe Murakami didn't have anything more than a symbolic ending in mind there, but I'd love a smart story reason for it all.

    -Wonder Girl origin! Solo adventure! Just one good issue explaining who her mother is (Diana? Hippolyta?)

    -Another Ravager issue. There was a serious Terra vibe in Robin saying he trusted her. Let's do something with this character!

    -Slade. I mean, really...it's a joke if this character gets away with never being anything more interesting than the random mysterious bad guy. I want a name, an origin and a big return...for real!

    Agreed on all accounts. Why don't you post those demands on J. Torres' blog? :)

    Because that would require me remembering how to get to his blog...and probably signing up to be able to post...?

    I'm lazy. Where's the blog again?

    Those are all great ideas. Sometimes, J. Torres visits this board and you should suggest these to him, before TT GO! is over and Tiny Titans replaces the book.
    The issue # 50 was great! :cool: I can't beleive this comic book has been around 50 issues. I really enjoyed most of the stories continuity wise or not. I hope some loose ends would be tied up before this title finishes it's run. :sad:
