"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Every day in May we will reveal the greatest stories ever told starring a particular character or written/drawn by a particular creator (and throughout the month, you’ll get daily chances to vote for NEXT week’s lists). These lists are voted on by YOU, the reader!
Here is the list of characters/creators featured so far (along with the rules on how to vote).
Today’s list is the Greatest Beast Boy/Changeling Stories Ever Told! I must say, I think you folks came up with a solid list!
10. Tiny Titans
Technically the vote here is for the first trade collection, Welcome to the Treehouse, but I really don’t think Tiny Titans necessarily qualifies for an ongoing story arc, so I figured I’d just put the book itself here. Beast Boy has had plenty of cute solo stuff in this series.
9. Doom Patrol #112-115
Sadly, Beast Boy does not show up on the covers of any of these issues. Ah well, these issues have a four-part extended look at Beast Boy’s origins.
8. Teen Titans (current volume) #13-15 “Beast Boys and Girls”
Gar loses his Beast Boy powers, but lots of other children begin to get infected with the virus that gave him his powers!
7. Doom Patrol #99-100
These two issues introduced Beast Boy to the Doom Patrol and then gave him his origin.
6. JLA/Titans: The Technis Imperative
Gar is the one who figures out that a seeming alien “invasion” is really his old friend Cyborg trying to get back to normal. Gar helps save Cyborg’s life (and causes a JLA/Titans clash in the process, but hey, nobody’s perfect!).
5. Tales of the New Teen Titans #3
This was Changeling’s spotlight issue of this acclaimed mini-series that offered origins/spotlights on the four new members of the Teen Titans.
4. Beast Boy
Geoff Johns and Ben Raab team-up for this story of Gar trying to make it as an actor in Los Angeles (hi-jinx ensure, naturally).
3. Tales of the Teen Titans #54-55 “The Trial of the Terminator”
Gar confronts Slade Wilson over his role in the death of Tara Markov. Gar wants to kill him, but does he have that in him?
2. New Teen Titans #13-15 “The Search for the Doom Patrol’s Killers”
Gar and the Titans hunt down the killers of Gar’s former team.
1. Tales of the Teen Titans #42-44, Annual #1 “The Judas Contract”
Gar is shocked to learn that his girlfriend is, well, a bit of a super-villain.
That’s the list! I’m sure there is a lot of agreement and disagreement with the list out there! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section!
And please vote for the lists that are still up for grabs here!
