Jericho

Titans Tower File Photos:


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!

Among the flower-covered mountains of Tibet, Beast Boy located Jericho – the gentle mute hero who can possess others through eye contact.

When Robin was abducted by the Brotherhood, it was up to Beast Boy to save his captured teammates. Gathering new allies Jericho, Herald, Pantha and Mas, Beast Boy successfully led an assault team to liberate the Titans and defeat the Brotherhood once and for all.

  • In the comic books, Jericho is a Titan – and also Slade Wilson’s son!
  • Jericho has been romantically linked to both Raven and Kole.
  • Jericho’s first mission was to team up with Nightwing and rescue the Titans from Slade and Terra, who had just betrayed the Titans!
  • The comic book Jericho was a musician; When Beast Boy first encounters Jericho, he is playing guitar.

Story Editor Rob Hoegee on Jericho: “There was a great deal of discussion about Jericho and how we might be able to use him – and whether he was worthy of an episode. Everyone agrees he’s an interesting character – but it would be difficult to focus a whole episode on him. Since Jericho uses sign language, there were concerns that wouldn’t animate well. We wanted to do justice to the character, but it just didn’t work out to center a whole episode around him. But we do see Jericho. And he does play a big part in wrapping the season up.”

Producer Glen Murakami on Jericho: “We just said, “Why the hell not?” Jericho is kind of an odd character. He’s sort of a wimpy character. So we wanted to try and make him cool.”

Jericho first appeared in TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS #42-44 [1984]. As son of Slade Wilson, Joe Wilson was born with the mutant ability to possess people once he made eye contact. A childhood accident left his vocal chord severed – leaving young Joey unable to speak. The gentle mute hero known as Jericho joined the Titans despite his familial ties. Long believed slain during an encounter with the Wildebeest Society in NEW TITANS #84 [1992], Jericho’s damaged spirit has managed to return from certain death.
