DCnU: Do You Know Where Your Titans Are?
UPDATE: The solicit to SUPERBOY #3 reveals Rose Wilson will be Superboy’s handler in the DCnU series.
UPDATE: Reports of Donna and Wally appearing in TEEN TITANS #2 have proven to be erroneous. See full story here.
UPDATE: According to the DC Road Show, Donna Troy has been “benched”: “You won’t be seeing Donna Troy yet in the new DCU, nor the Stephanie and Cassandra Batgirls. They haven’t been killed off though, just benched.”
With the flurry of relaunch news, I thought I’d try and catalog where we’ll find our favorite characters come September. I hope to update this list as new information trickles in.

Here’s a list of the most notably missing, who are currently appearing regularly in the DCU:
Donna Troy: The character has been “benched” post-relaunch, according to the DC Road Show reports
Wally West (Flash (?))
Gar Logan (Beast Boy)
Joe Wilson (Jericho)
Captain Marvel Jr. (and the Marvel Family)
Zachary Zatara <– possible to appear in JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK (Zatanna is a member)
Jackson Hyde (Aqualad) <– likely to appear in AQUAMAN
Lorena Marquez (Aquagirl) <– likely to appear in AQUAMAN
There’s loads of other secondary Titans, too. Too numerous to mention here. Hopefully, we’ll learn more as DC forges ahead.
On the positive side, with the changes in continuity, we might also see some of the great “dearly departed” Titans characters pop up again, like Tempest, Lian Harper, Lilith Clay, Kid Devil, Wintergreen, Adeline Kane, Duela Dent, and scores of others.
Here’s a promising quote from (TEEN TITANS, SUPERBOY and RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS writer) Scott Lobdell, “On the subject of membership, there are a ton of awesome Teen Titans to chose from. Personally, I would love to see Miss Martian and Offspring and Natasha Irons and Bumblebee and Lilith and Duela Dent and Terra and even Gnarrk on the team — and Blue Beetle and Supergirl and Molecule and Static and Little Barda and Red Devil and a lot of other great characters I would love to read, let alone write.”
UPDATE: Titans fan, Askanipsion, asked Scott about Lilith on Twitter, here’s the question and Scott’s awesome response:
@ScottLobdell Any chance we will see my favorite Titan Lilith/Omen anytime soon?
@Askanipsion Gosh I hope so! She rocks! (Would love for her to anchor a sort of “Teen Titans Dark” team! But who listens to me?! =)
