With this latest episode (ep. 7), all of the Titans are officially murderers now that Gar chewed the guts out of some guy while shape-shifted as a tiger. What’s more, the other Titans added to their murder toll in this latest episode. Rachel murders Doctor Adamson and doesn’t seem all that upset about it. Unlike before, it seems she was fully in control of her powers and willfully killed him. If Dick didn’t already kill at least a few of those guards with the pipe, he flat out told Kory to blow the asylum up, killing everyone inside including any other innocent people being held against their will (assuming Rachel’s mom wasn’t the only one).
Now I haven’t been very up to date on the current line up of DC comics, but is this how it is now with heroes? I’m used to seeing where it might happen in self-defense or to prevent innocents from getting killed, but now it’s okay for heroes to kill whenever they get mad?
It seems this show goes overboard wanting to be “edgy” and “dark” and pushes aside the virtues of true superheroes. Am I in a minority on this one? What do you guys think? I’m not abandoning the show or advocating others do, but it’s getting to be a bit much how dark DC’s going with Titans. At first, I hoped the murders were there to show the contrast of where they came from to how they become true heroes, but I’m not so sure anymore. They just seem like irredeemable psychopaths that aren’t much better than the bad guys.
