The Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is available streaming now. The physical Bluray or DVD disc will be released April 18th.


Compared to rigidly faithful adaptations like The Dark Knight Returns, The Judas Contract is a pretty loose take on the source material. That's probably for the best, honestly. That storyline came in the middle of a lengthy run by creators Marv Wolfman and George Perez and built on a great deal of continuity that simply isn't in place in this particular animated universe. The problem with this adaptation, though, is that it still attempts to cover too much ground. The 80-minute run-time simply isn't enough to do justice to the various plot threads or flesh out the main characters to the degree they deserve. Brother Blood comes across as your textbook supervillain in search of absolute power. Much of the drama involving Blue Beetle's homesickness and the Nightwing/Starfire romance feels tacked-on and poorly developed. Very little is done with the always enjoyable Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne dynamic.
