Titans’ New Beast Boy Transformation Recreates A Classic Batman Villain

Warning! Spoilers ahead for Titans season 3, episode 12, “Prodigal.”

HBO’s Titans season 3 lastly sees Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) getting a brand-new animal improvement, and he winds up recreating a timeless Batman bad guy at the same time. While Gar Logan is still having a hard time to manage his improvements (beyond developing into a tiger), a distressing scene sets off a brand-new improvement in season 3, episode 12 when Beast Boy and Raven are attempting to assist Nightwing. Due to the fact that the Titans have actually been running in Gotham for the bulk of the season, Gar’s change makes best sense.

With Bruce Wayne having actually left Gotham in the wake of Jason Todd’s death and the Dark Knight’s own murder of the Joker (the previous Robin’s killer), Dick Grayson brought the Titans to Gotham to act as its brand-new protectors. The Scarecrow had Jason reanimated, ushering Todd’s change into the darker and damaged Red Hood as they started their strategies for a Gotham takeover. Throughout that time, Beast Boy’s restricted capability to change into animals has actually been something he’s been dealing with while assisting the Titans, viewing as how he’s just ever had the ability to develop into a tiger on command.

However, Titans season 3, episode 12 sees Beast Boy and Raven finding Nightwing in the consequences of his newest fight with Red Hood. Having actually chosen to go alone, Dick Grayson wound up being eliminated by the Red Hood. Todd likewise had the assistance of Gotham’s people, viewing as how he and Scarcrow had actually polluted the city’s water system with worry chemicals while likewise managing the general public story to make Red Hood seem the hero and the Titans wrongdoers. Finding Nightwing dead, the distressing scene activated a change within Beast Boy that saw him developing into a bat. The midway point of the procedure saw him looking extremely much like Dr. Kirk Langstrom’s Man-Bat, a traditional Batman bad guy who turned himself into a monstrous were-bat.

One of the Dark Knight’s more awful bad guys, Kirk Langstrom was attempting to produce a treatment for deafness utilizing bat DNA, wishing to open their capability to echolocate. The speculative tests he ran on himself resulted in his changes into the Man-Bat It’s rather fitting that Beast Boy would look like Langstrom (even if it was simply for a minute) as he turned into a full-on bat in Gotham City.

Joining the cloud of bats that had actually formed in reaction to Gar’s improvement, Beast Boy was apparently able to direct the nighttime animals in his brand-new type. Directing the bats to get Grayson’s body and take him to the Lazarus Pit he and Raven had actually discovered, they hoped that it would reanimate Nightwing simply as it had the Red Hood. While Beast Boy ultimately changed back into his regular human kind, it will be fascinating to see if ending up being a bat will be a brand-new animal type he can now use as Titans continues, or if it was a one-time change in action to the sorrow of seeing Nightwing dead in this specific episode. In either case, Beast Boy’s entertainment of among Batman’s timeless enemies is a quite enjoyable Easter egg all the exact same.
