Titans Hunt Era: Archives (1991-1995)


Titans Hunt Era: Archives

Archived: 1991-1995

Change was in the air. The “Titans Hunt” would provide major shake-ups with New Titans #71-84, resulting in an ever-changing status quo. The team said goodbye to old friends, as it welcomed edgy new members like Pantha, Phantasm, Wildebeest and Red Star.

Meanwhile, Deathstroke debuted in 1991 accompanied by eye-popping covers by Mike Zeck. Marv Wolfman wrote the title throughout the entire run. The series introduced readers to a tough female Vigilante, Slade’s long-lost daughter Rose Wilson and two new Ravagers. Deathstroke #55 attempted to spin the title in another direction, but the series was ultimately canceled with Deatshtroke #60.

Events became even more complicated when the time-tossed Team Titans from an alternate future emerged, and launched their own spin-off series, Team Titans, in 1993. Team Titans was written by Marv Wolfman and #1-3 featured art by Kevin Maguire. Later, art chores were assumed by Phil Jimenez with issue #7. Wolfman left the title with Team Titans #12 – leaving Phil Jimenez and Jeff Jensen to co-wrote the book until its cancellation with Team Titans #24.

The New Titans remained in flux until Arsenal assembled his own team of Titans after the Zero Hour time crisis, until the book’s final issue, New Titans #130.

From Titans Hunt to Zero Hour, this page contains information and magazine articles from 1991-1995.
