    Default Crush Appreciation Thread 2021

    Daughter of Lobo and current member of the Teen Titans and Titans Academy. She may have started out small as a member of Damian's Titans but she has appeared to make a big impact, given how she is directly on the cover for Infinite Frontier. I would expect big things out of her, and probably another run in with Lobo if some variant covers are to be believed.

    She’s only half Czarnian, right?

    Have we seen her mom yet?

    I remember someone in an article or something when she first appeared that it was someone important or something but it never occurred. We really only have seen Crush's foster parents and her rather violent interaction with Lobo.

    She appeared in TT FS so hopefully it'll mean she'll be in Titans Academy, because I really like her !

    Not sure if it’s a mini or an ongoing but apparently DC is working on a Crush and Lobo series, which should be interesting/fun given how Lobo is...though probably not entirely great given the last time they met.

    there are a lot of characters I'd have thought would get a book before Crush. I'm kinda surprised Crush is the character from the latest TT team to be getting the push that DC is going for. while I don't hate her, she was definitely my least favorite character of that team. I'm interested to see what they have in store for her but not particularly excited about it right now (if that makes sense).

    Iím kind of the opposite, she was definitely one the newer characters I enjoyed (I already knew Wallace, Emiko, and Damian), and I honestly didnít like Roundhouse, he was annoying and I didnít like they forgave him for the heel turn. Crush was just this really cool strong girl that I thought was really cool.

    Also Iím assuming what really sold her was the fact that she is Loboís daughter, given Loboís decent amount of popularity at DC and appearances in media.

    I actually like Roundhouse. maybe it's because I had to deal with kids for so long, but I didn't find him as annoying as everyone complained. I understood where he was coming from, and found his actions far more forgivable than half of the things Damian was doing and has done. for me, beyond her crush on Djinn, Crush didn't have much personality besides "needlessly abrasive" which I overlooked at first but as the series went on it got more irritating and she didn't show much improvement until close to the end; earlier when Wallace got fed up and chucked her shit, I can't say I wasn't happy about it. I guess the connection to Lobo does give her a boost but iunno. I don't even think that's been used all that interestingly and I'm not even sure if Lobo is all that popular these days. like i said, i don't hate her, I liked everyone on the team, she just was my least favorite. hopefully this Crush and Lobo series will finally sell me on the character fully, because I actually like her origin a lot. non-white american aliens are always my jam.

    Considering how hard it is to kill a Czarnian, even with Crush only being half, its not too much of a surprise she's alive.

    As for her getting a series with Lobo, here's hoping its different than their initial meeting. It honestly has potential to be a good series, but I'll have to see how its written to judge it.
