hmmm…well saidThere was a massive drop in the quality of Teen Titans right after Infinite Crisis; it seems that even Johns didn't like the idea of killing off Conner and promoting Bart to Flash so soon after his own run on Wally's book. The series started getting really soapy after that. To this day, I hope it was someone else who decided to make Match a Bizarro Superboy. I hope Geoff Johns would have the creative instinct to realize that a cunning, petty shapeshifter for an anti-Superboy is better than a silver age rip-off.
That was probably the darkest time for Tim while he still had a solo: Geoff Johns writes a few sub-par Teen Titans issues that make Tim obsessive and angsty enough to start making out with Wonder Girl before leaving the books to slow but dependable down ward trend in writers, Adam Beechen derails Cassandra Cain in Tim's book on editorial orders, and then the same editorial group kills off Bart for failing to make an editorial decision look good, leaving Tim with almost no remaining friends.
It's kind of hilarious how much better the series got after Chuck Dixon, Geoff Johns, and others pretty much snapped back Tim's old world in time for him to become Red Robin. All this context stuff got put back nicely to where it was for a while, and even Nicieza run haters probably will admit that at least the world he wrote Tim in was better than the post-Infinite Crisis one.
And now, most of that is gone or changed into the DCnU. Bart's the only member of the original Young Justice team to arguably be doing better than he was before. Lobdell seems to have appreciated his original version better than the others: he reads like Impulse even before Nicieza took over, whereas everyone else is being shanghaied into New Teen Titans/X-Men archetypes.
