The new Swamp Thing invented for DC Comics' 5G, and getting his own series for DC Rebirth, comes to Titans #5 this week. And Levi Kami, current Avatar of the Green, discovers that his presence under Starfire's touch has quite the transformation.
Swamp Thing is not the only one undergoing a transformation. With the Beast World event coming, Beast Boy shows off some of his more "out there" transformations… and the impact they have on Beast Boy.
…suggesting that Gar is playing a heavy price for his ability over time.
But it seems it is worse to be an Avatar, and Beast Boy has that experience too. Leading to an offer being made from a Titan to a newcomer…
The new Swamp Thing as a new member of Titans going forward? Looks like it… as for what else Starfire might be able to do…
That cover from Batman: Off-World #4 for February has caused some to wonder if Bruce Wayne will have to have a conversation with Dick Grayson. But no, this is a different Tangarian, Ione, as seen in Batman Off-World #2 this week.
Batman: Off-World sees a young Batman encountering a very different Targarian… just don't let her near a Swamp Thing.
