Teen Titans Era: Next Generation Archives

Archived: 2003-2011

Teen Titans was reimaged by the creative team of writer Geoff Johns and artist Mike McKone. Deciding the next generation of super-heroes needed a place to go, Cyborg, Starfire and Beast Boy created a new Titans Tower headquarters in San Francisco. Joined by Robin, Superboy, Wonder Girl  and Kid Flash, they became the latest version of Teen Titans! The membership  evolved over time, but Titans Tower itself remained a destination for young heroes-in-training.

Meanwhile, writer Judd Winick along with artist Ian Churchill launched the classic Wolfman/Pérez Titans roster out of a Teen Titans East Special one-shot in November and into the ongoing series simply titled Titans in April of 2008. Nightwing, Starfire, Flash, Red Arrow, Cyborg, Raven, Donna Troy and Beast Boy were together again for the first time, as they say. The book received a shocking change in direction when Deathstroke usurped the Titans’ name and formed a villains-for-hire team

From the original Titans to a bold new generation of Teen Titans, this page contains  articles and interviews from 2003-2011.
