Tomasi and Gleason have written this Teen Titans arc to possibly answer some lingering questions that have remained since the beginning of Rebirth, and they do that well. The best part of it all is that they never make this event boring–the action never stops. What makes this well executed though is the character growth we manage to get, especially in such a manic fast-paced story as this. The Titans grow as a team, and Damian’s and Jon’s friendship continues to evolve. This is all supplemented by some great character work from the arc “villain” who gets a new persona in this issue.

Gleason and Tomasi are a team that can handle these characters, and they continue to be the duo that best handles Damian and his continuous evolution into a hero.

There are some really big surprises at the end as well that do come in as a nice supplement to long-time Titan fans; however, a casual reader that has just started reading DC Comics at Rebirth could be a bit lost. The reveal could have been handled a bit better so there would be no need for a double take as to who those characters are.

The art in this issue continues to be stellar as both the character work and the action sequences are handled very well and supplement the story. Any book that has more than one artist working on it always runs a risk of being disjointed artistically; however, that does not happen here.

Super Sons of Tomorrow is a great companion piece to not just the Rebirth stories but also a segue into possibly bringing in some other fan favorites from times past. The potential is certainly there, the story is very engaging and entertaining, and as such it comes greatly recommended.
