This book finally makes my pull list. At least for the opening arc of this new title revamp. Probably haven't read an issue since #2 or #3. This new team DEFIANCE on the cover was such a grabber. The cool looking Brett Booth-like vibe continues on inside which is appreciated. The chapter layouts have the same vibe as the under-rated last Omega Man volume. And the interesting choice of team members is wonderfully organic - right up to the earth shaking

on the last page. It was a pretty good new team set up with a lot of intriguing questions and dynamics to explore. Hopefully, the book can strike a balance between the title character, his instant large team cast run by his ex, worthwhile enemies, and his mystery new antagonist who has taken up his gimmick and codename - or so it seems. So, in other words, it looks good.

I agree, the story leading up to it in the Titans books was good in parts but this was a real stand out issue/direction. As for the surprise, well, Marvel has dulled your senses with shocking last pages, she IS on the cover
I'd say this story will be a long arc more than a permanent direction as the team would have some serious hurdles to jump to succeed long term. But it's promising a really fun ride.
