    Default Garfield Logan/Beast Boy/Changeling Appreciation Thread

    Since Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo's Teen Titans: Beast Boy is coming out tomorrow and another book Beast Boy loves Raven is announced, I decided to make a thread for Titan's number one shapeshifter.

    Introduction: Beast Boy aka Garfield Logan is the superhero created by Arnold Drake and Bob Brown who first appeared in Doom Patrol #99, November 1965. He was later introduced as Changeling as the member of Teen Titans in Marv Wolfman and Geroge Perez's New Teen Titans #1, November 1980. Popular member of Doom Patrol and Teen Titans, Beast Boy is a shapeshifter who possesses the ability to metamorph any animals he chooses. Beast Boy has been recognized by larger audiences in popular media thanks to his appearance in show such as Teen Titans (2003), Teen Titans GO, Young Justice, and various others.

    I was first introduced to Beast Boy in the Teen Titans animated series way back and he was always my favorite. I know many people did not like New 52 titans, but I thought he was written pretty well in it with being a competent hero and a good friend to Bunker.

    I hope I did the image thing right.

    I always enjoyed his characterizations in NTT, and on the TT cartoon. TT Go, I've only seen a few episodes, but he seems pretty dumb on that one, but then, they all do. LOL

    I liked his guest appearance in the Wonder Twins maxi-series.

    I can't believe he didn't have one of these already. The guy's more than earned it. I'm sure it's obvious from my avatar but Beast Boy's pretty much my favorite superhero ever. And he has been ever since I was introduced to him in the 2003 cartoon. Maybe it's the Animorphs fan in me but I'm a sucker for shape shifters and he reminds me, a lot, of my favorite character in that series so I just naturally took to him.

    I just wish everything after Flashpoint had treated him better. Wasn't a fan of his New 52 incarnation at all (though the New 52 Titans as a whole just...offended me on multiple levels) and even in the Rebirth/Post-Rebirth era, I think he's been better but still...kind of a shadow of what he once was. I feel like the loss of the Titans' history hurt him as a character almost as much as it did Vic (though at this point I suppose whether or not it hurt Vic at all would be up for debate in the eyes of some of his fans). And even though it looks like most of the Titans' old history has been re-established, I haven't really seen enough of Gar in recent comics to know if that's benefited him in any way.

    On a more positive note, I've been loving him in the Young Justice cartoon (in fact I actually prefer his origin there over his original one). Season 3 in particular was surprisingly good for him. I was not expecting Gar to take center stage the way that he did but I hope it continues into the next season.

    I have such an odd relationship with TT GO. There are times where it is genuinely clever and funny. But for the most part it's just painful to watch. And Gar's part of the reason for that. He and Robin are easily the worst characters in that show. The most unfunny. The most irritating. They're just....Ugh, why does that show exist >___<
