Sad to see this title go, to be honest.

description

Instead of this just being a sappy farewell, there's an actual action-packed story here and it's pretty good.
The gist is that an older version of Tim Drake from an alternate timeline (I think) is hopping through the multiverse correcting problems. And by correcting, I mean killing.
Worse, the way he's traveling is causing him to become a bit unhinged. Unfortunately for Jon, Tim has seen a version of their future where Jon (potentially because of Damien) wi

"I'm going to keep you safe. We'll figure this out. Friends help each other, right?" - Damian 'Robin' Wayne

"I thought we were just partners?" - Jon 'Superboy' Kent

"Shut up, Jon." - Damian 'Robin' Wayne

More entertaining than Vol. 3: Parent Trap, this edition is really a crossover event featuring Superman, Batman, and the Teen Titans. The story begins uniquely with an alternate-timeline Tim Drake, attired as a homicidal version of the Dark Knight, getting absolutely medieval on Bruce Wayn

The future Tim Drake from Detective Comics returns to kill Jon Kent before he accidentally explodes and kills thousands of people. Full of fun and excitement, this thing explodes off the page. I like how Tomasi tied in the future Titans of Tomorrow from Geoff Johns's run on Teen Titans. I'm wondering how this future Titans timeline fits in now that the timeline was erased by the New 52. (DC's continuity is pretty much indecipherable at this point.) Anyway, I'm still finding Super Sons to be one ...more

The time travelling Tim Drake from Detective Comics is back, and he's got his sights set on Superboy! When the Teen Titans experience a civil war, Damian and Superboy head out on their own to protect each other and the timeline from the Titans Of Tomorrow!

I'm a sucker for the whole 'older-versions-of-teen-characters' trope, and having the Titans Of Tomorrow from Geoff Johns' Teen Titans run appear here had me all excited. This is mostly just a chase-and-battle story, a lit

Super Sons remains super freaking fun even with a mini-crossover event.

So future Tim drake is back. You know, the one who tried to kill Batwoman. Now that he's back he's not after her anymore, now he wants Superboy! He hunts down Bruce and Clark first, takes them out of commission and then aims his targets on the boy. Now it's up to Damien and the Teen Titans to fight off the future killer Batman before he gets what he wants.

Good: The art once again remains very well done. The surprise cameos

Great concept, wonky execution, real consequences.

World: The art was a bit of a disappointment for me, it started off great with Superman but then Jimenez was missing from the Super Sons issues and the Teen Titans was rather meh. I wish there was more consistency here. The world building here is pretty good. The concept of Tim Drake from the future was done well in Detective Comics and his motivations and characterization was done well there, here this arc is borrowing from that. But that being

If you're not familiar with Super Sons, it's about Jon Kent (Superboy) and Damian Wayne (Robin) fighting crime together. It's a fun dynamic. On the one hand you have Jon who's a ball of sunshine (if balls of sunshine are allowed to have sarcasm down to an art), and on the other you have Damian who was raised by assassins and takes himself way too seriously. This is the crossover arc that ties into that series. It involves a future version of Tim Drake trying to kill Superboy so that he can't be ...more

The return of the Future Tim Drake and he returns to commit more douchebaggery .

Plot holes aside this was a good story arc , and honestly I'd have rated this higher , but my problem with this story is that , we have seen similar story done to death by now . Heck look at the last appearance of Future-Tim and you will see the same pattern . There wasn't much difference in this story to those similar story

This book was really good. This story is about: Tim Drake from an alternate timeline comes to kill Superboy. He wants to kill Superboy because, in the future, he explodes and kills millions. My pros are: I love the relationship between Superboy and Robin. I also liked the idea of the story. Peter J. Tomasi has another amazing book. Jorge Jimenez’s drawing was also really good. My cons are: the story was too short. They didn't focus to much on Beast Boy. I also thought that Tim Drake injured and ...more

I kind of love who Damian is becoming as Jon's friend. Adorable.

I do not like this who future Tim thing. This is just another example of how DC keeps shafting Tim as a character. He's dead in one future. He's crazy from Joker toxin in another future. He's run away and lets everyone think he died in yet another. And he becomes Batman and shoots people with guns now in this one...
When I read this, my first thought was "this is some big ol pile of bull sh*t. Poor Tim. DC writers really don't like

I really love Damian and Jon's dynamic. It's like they've taken the extremes of Batman's anger and Superman's positivity and rolled them up into miniature versions of the characters.

At the heart of it, this is a story about friendship, although it's not always that obvious. It reminds me of the love Dick Grayson has for Bruce Wayne. Damian and Jon are best buds and that's always going to come first.

Even when Damian is a jerk, he does just want to protect Jon which is really sweet.

I know Damian

Read as single issues.

Maybe it's that I read the first two parts back in December, but this...was really confusing. A lot of hustle and bustle and possiblefuture!Tim being a massive dick for reasons I'm still not sure I understand, only to have his own personal 'your mom's name is Martha?' moment at the end. Then again, I know next to nothing about Tim right now since I haven't gotten around to reading his stints as Robin and in the Teen Titans, so maybe this is par for the course?

As it stands,

Ok, this one is 'shame on me' for not realizing I started the wrong volume and read this and the last one out of order. FWIW, it had no effect on the overall story being told of Jonathan and Damien as this was a story line of its own. To reiterate, "The Batman of Tomorrow travels to the present to prevent a cataclysmic disaster before it happens, revealing that Superboy will soon be responsible for the deaths of millions." The thing I would point out is "this

Note that this is not a volume in the all-too short-lived Super Sons series, but an event, or a crossover, comprising issues of Batman, Superman, Teen Titans, and Super Sons.

Note, also that the track record on DC events is not very good:

The Damian-Jonathan dynamic is still pretty enjoyable, but I got a little pain-in-the-event with the ridiculous time travel, solar flare paradoxes.

I do love the Super Sons but in this collection it was Tim Drake of the future battling the Teen Titans with the Super Sons there because Superboy is going to blow up in the future and Tim wants to stop that. I hate alternative reality plots and this one felt VERY forced. Killing a nice kid because he will blow up in the future? Why not stop the event itself? And - sorry but - Tim(e) Drake take down Superman and Batman and all the Teen Titans? Um...no.

Also the TTs felt very weakly developed her

This was pretty good, art wise and plot wise. I love the friendship between Damien and Jon. This one really has me excited to read the rest of Teen Titans I have, as well as get a hold of Doomsday Clock soon to see how they work out the snarled timeline they made between pre new 52 and rebirth.
I think it is kinda cool to see DC bringing back some plots from the pre 52 era, as it was better (what little I read of that) in my opinion.
A solid cross over between two solid series, as well as Superma

This one was just ok. This story has been done quite a bit and it doesn't really add much new here. The humor and characterization that I think makes this series good takes a back seat to the plot which has some pacing problems. The art is pretty good still with some issues better than others. Overall, still a good volume, just not as good as the others.

Story: 3/5
Art: 4/5

4 stars, the most exciting part was when Bart Allen appeared also the story shines during the dialogue between superboy and Damien, they’re super funny and being a preteen I can relate with them, but I did not enjoy beast boy in this, he just wasn’t as funny and happy as ever, he was mostly boring well anyways great book buy it

Super Sons of Tomorrow is a five-issue crossover event that pits Tim Drake as Batman from the future against the Super Sons, their fathers, the Teen Titans, and the Titans of Tomorrow. Having brought to the current time, Tim Drake as Batman, would do anything to ensure that the dystopian future he came from would not occur and in order to that he must kill Superboy. This trade paperback collects Super Sons #11–12, Superman #37–38, and Teen Titans #15.

Overall, this was a pretty fun little book, pushing Damian and Jon to finally admit to being friends, rather than "partners." Jon's near-meltdown at the end went off a little too easily, I felt, and Tim's heroic turn sacrifice was entirely unearned. But overall, I enjoyed the ride.

I was fairly satisfied with how accessible the book was, given that this is the first time I've read an appearance of the "Titans of Tomorrow," Aqualad-who-is-not-Garth, or Kid-Flash-who-isn't-(but is?)-Wally. (And thi

Coming back to our universe from the timestream (and the pages of Detective Comics) future Tim Drake (now calling himself Savior, complete with new costume) has a new target in mind to save his future: Superboy. After taking down both Batman and Superman, the only thing standing in his way is the Teen Titans. Or is it?
After displaying a form of "Solar Flare", Damian agrees that something needs to happen with Jon, lest he hurt himself or others. So, ignoring most of his team's wishes, h

Apparently there's a time traveling future version of Tim from an alternate timeline who is kinda crazy and murdery. Rather than talk to people about how to prevent a possible future problem, he'd rather come in swinging and take people down so they can't prevent him from killing a kid. He's less brainy tech geek and more messiah complex.

It started out promising enough, but it got raspberry much as soon as the Teen Titans got involved. I guess Alternate Tim isn't the only one who would rather s

Grumble grumble TIM DRAKE WOULD NEVER grumble grumble. Anyway, this standalone volume fits very closely into the Batman: Detective Comics run in which an evil Tim Drake from the future travels back in time to try to fix things that have led to his apocalyptic present by killing the people he holds responsible (in B:DC, it's Kate Kane; here, it's Jon).

A fun volume. Future Tim Drake (from Detective Comics) returns, and he is, again/still, trying to kill someone to save the future. He seems half-crazy this time around, and is constantly fighting off disappearing back into hypertime...which would feel more tragic if it made any sense. Weirder, the old Geoff Johns teen titans crew--most of whom don't exist in the current DCU--show up with Tim the lost. Conner Kent, Cassie Sandsmark, Bart Allen? Yep all here. How they tie in with Jon when their re ...more
