The Teen Titans found themselves on a race around the world against the Brotherhood of Evil, who were trying to eliminate teen superheroes for their own sinister purposes. Along the way, the Titans rallied a collection of new allies to their cause!

In Asia, Robin located Bushido, the proud yet silent Japanese teen warrior.

  • The term ‘bushido’ refers to the strict moral code that developed among the samurai class of ancient Japan.
  • In CALLING ALL TITANS, Robin and Bushido fight demon-ninjas who turn to dust; In the comic book series, Bushido battles various mythical creatures from Japanese folklore.

Producer Glen Murakami on the new Titans: “We went through all the characters. and decided which ones we could use. Which characters do we need? Which ones would be cool? What were their powers? We make a list and go from there. We wanted to expand the Titans’ world. That was a direction we wanted to go in. We decided it’s like the Titans were in high school and they graduated. It’s like they went on to college. And when you go to college, you go see the world. That was something we were trying to parallel.”

“When you go to college, you don’t necessarily have the same group of friends. Some people go to different colleges. Some people stay in town. You make new friends. That’s what it’s like. So we wanted the characters to experience that.”

Marking his first appearance in TITANS ANNUAL #1 [1999], Japanese teenager Ryuko Orsono became the proud Bushido warrior upon his mother’s death – fulfilling a long family line of honorable heroes. Bushido later joined the short-lived Titans L.A. Branch in TITANS SECRET FILES #2 [2000].
