Titans East Special: What Could Have Been....
Uh, "Run-in"? No, Vic, I skimmed that particular Supergirl issue. More like "attempted rape and domestic battery".In my last post, in my review of TITANS EAST SPECIAL#1, I questioned why Cyborg would recruit a stalker and attempted rapist like Power Boy on their team. Then I had a great idea:
What if that recruitment drive had been, at least in part, a "sting" operation, in which the object of the exercise above wasn't just to test Power Boy, but to bring him to justice once and for all? And what if, in addition to the heroes shown here, we saw people like Wally, Donna, Raven, Gar, Cassie, Kyle Rayner, and even Supergirl herself (aka "the big guns"), along with a large squad of reserves like, say, Red Star, waiting in the wings to take him down?
But I guess that wouldn't be as original as needlessly killing off a bunch of B- and C-List characters, because, Lord knows, that never happens in the current DC comics.
