Titans #1 [1999] to Titans #50 [2003]

The original Titans were first reunited in a mini-series that also featured the Justice League of America in JLA/Titans: the Technis Imperative #1-3 in 1998. The deluxe mini was written by Devin Grayson & Phil Jimenez, with art by Phil Jimenez and Andy Lanning. The story featured absolutely everyone that was ever a Titan, as they joined together to save Cyborg from alien influence. Former Titan Vic Stone threatened to carry out his Technis Imperative and turn the earth’s moon into a new Technis world. The JLA and Titans first clashed, then united to save the earth and Vic Stone. The mini-series was designed as a primer to restart the Titans series with the five original members (Nightwing, Troia, Flash, Arsenal and Tempest) as the core.

To quote DC’s house ads and promotional posters leading up to the new Titans series: “You Want the Titans? You Got the Titans!” Readers demanded the return of the original members of the team, and DC Comics obliged with Titans #1 in March 1999. Written by Devin Grayson with art by Mark Buckingham, the series returned the team to the feeling of ‘family’ that made it so popular during the 1980’s. The core five Titans were joined by Cyborg, Starfire, Argent, Damage and Jesse Quick.

In the first year of the series, the Titans faced a newly reorganized H.I.V.E. As Vandal Savage gathered an anti-Titans group he dubbed Tartarus. The first year culminated in the 3-part “Immortal Coil” in Titans #10-12, where Changeling and Deathtroke joined the Titans to take on the dual threats of H.I.V.E. And Tartarus. The epic battle brought group tensions to the forefront, leaving a broken team to deal with the fallout in Titans #13. The original five finally dealt with their interpersonal issues after the Gargoyle returned to manipulate their emotions in Titans #15-16. This would also mark Mark Buckingham’s last issue on Titans.

Titans #17-19 saw two Titans bid farewell to the team. Starfire returned to her people after an outer space adventure, while Damage left the team to deal with long-buried memories of abuse. In Titans #20, Vic Stone found happiness at last when his consciousness was downloaded into a new cloned body. In the same issue, Flash elected to leave the team. The Titans lost four members in a handful of issues, scaling back the membership to a more manageable cast of six. Titans #17 also welcomed Jay Faerber as co-writer to Devin Grayson, paving the way for him to assume full reign as scribe with Titans #21.

With Devin Grayson closing her run with Titans #20, Titans #21 marked the beginning of the new creative team of Jay Faerber as full-time writer and Paul Pelletier as artist.

Donna Troy’s identity crisis was resolved once and for all during the “Who Is Troia?” arc. Titans #25 features the final part of the three-part story, “a story designed to reinvigorate the character of Troia, and also clear up any confusion about her origin,” Faerber explained. The creative team was joined by some all-star creative guests, including original Teen Titans artist Nick Cardy and New Teen Titans creators Marv Wolfman and George Pérez; other contributes included Tom Grummett, Phil Jimenez, and Terry Dodson, who joined the others to lend a hand on this thirty-eight-page issue, which featured tons of Titans-related guest stars, and served as a trip down memory lane for Donna Troy fans.

New editor Andy Helfer took over from Eddie Berganza with Titans #26 in 2001. The book changed focus when a group of precocious D.E.O. Orphans were introduced in that same issue. Soon, the D.E.O. Orphan storyline seemed to dominate the book, but was finally resolved with Titans #38. The dangerous D.E.O. Orphan known as Epsilon destroyed Titans Tower and the homeless super-powered orphans were sent back to a restructured D.E.O. Facility. Pelletier had left the book to be replaced by Barry Kitson with Titans #37. And the end of the D.E.O. Storyline was also the end of Faerber’s  run on Titans.

Faerber explained his exit: “This was a real choice assignment for me, because I really enjoy the characters. But the problem with getting a chance to write characters you grew up reading about – and have very passionate ideas for – is that you’re sometimes too close to them. I learned a lot from editor Andy Helfer during our run together (and Titans #30 stands out as a personal favorite), but we just had different ideas about what the book should be about. A lot of times that sort of give-and-take between creators makes for better stories, but in this instance, we were never able to get into a real solid groove, and I think the book was suffering because of it. So, rather than just sit there and collect a paycheck, which would’ve been disrespectful to both Andy and the book’s loyal fans, I opted to bow out, so Andy could find a writer more in line with his vision for the book.”

Tom Peyer came aboard as writer with Titans #42. Peyer and Kitson had barely begun to make a mark on the series when word came down that DC decided to reinvent the Teen Titans franchise once again, fusing the Young Justice characters with old Titans members to create another Teen Titans series. Titans ended its run rather unceremoniously with Titans #50.

Solicitation: Written by Tom Peyer; art by Barry Kitson and James Pascoe; cover by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez In stores August 28. “Chemical World” Part 3. The Titans struggle with the mind-altering consequences of a journey to the Chemical World in search of the anarchist known as Garvan. Meanwhile, back on earth, S.T.A.R. Labs scientists race against the clock to save the life of Tempest before he becomes the Chemical World’s first human casualty! 32 pages, $2.75

Synopsis: Nightwing is able to shock the Titans and force them to discover they have been under mind-controlling influence. Only Argent, through taking Garret Donovan’s Apex drug, was immune. The Titans encounter Garret Donovan [Garvan], who tells them Hallucinatra has lied to them. Garvan is actually a freedom fighter trying to free the Chemical World from Hallucinatra, who has kept his reign of power by creating a society dependent on narcotics he supplies.

Garvan fled to earth to create a group of unwitting metahuman freedom fighters, and synthesized the drug Apex so they would be immune to the Chemical World’s drug addiction. Garvan was able to acquire a cansiter of gas that would break the drug’s control, and force anyone who breathed it to go cold turkey. Hallucinatra attacks and kills Garvan; He almost leaves with the canister, until Arsenal’s well-aimed shot hits the canister, releasing the gas, insuring The Chemical World will be freed of its addiction.

Meanwhile, S.T.A.R. Labs scientists – the Others Brothers – are able to save Tempest from the Chemical World drug. But Dolphin’s delight is shattered when Tempest’s first concern upon awakening is for his Titans teammates.

Notes:
>> First appearance of two S.T.A.R. Labs scientists known as the Others Brothers: brothers who finish each other’s sentences.

Lilith discovers the alien creature that gives the Consensus its collective opinion is acting on its own, using the people of earth as its army against the remaining humans not under its thrall. The alien is broadcasting the thoughts of a Utopia trapped in another brain-dead alien’s mind. Nightwing and the other Titans force the evil alien into the beam transmitting The Consensus thoughts – thus exposing the creatures evil intentions to the earth’s populace. This breaks The Consensus’ hold and wipes the mind of the evil alien.

Story: Judd Winick
Art: Alé Garza

Colors: Jeromy Cox
Editor: Eddie Berganza
Cover: Ale Garza

Solicitation:It’s graduation day for the members of Young Justice and the Titans. But these young heroes won’t be hearing the familiar chords of “Pomp and Circumstance”…they’ll be marching to a funeral dirge! The fate of two teams — and two heroes — is decided in THE TITANS/YOUNG JUSTICE: GRADUATION DAY, a 3-issue miniseries written by Judd Winick (GREEN LANTERN) with art by Alé Garza (GEN13) & Trevor Scott (BLACK SUN) that ships biweekly beginning in May and leads directly into two of this summer’s hottest new launches: OUTSIDERS and TEEN TITANS!

A mysterious conglomerate offers to sponsor both the Titans and Young Justice. Before the heroes can decide whether to accept the offer, Indigo, a mysterious cyborg girl from the future, attacks — seriously wounding several members of the two teams. The battle carries over to S.T.A.R. Labs, where Superman lends the two ailing teams a helping hand. But will it be enough? It all leads to a pulse-pounding conclusion that will leave more than one longtime fan-favorite character dead — and both young teams shattered forever. The big question is: Who will die? How will the remaining heroes pick up the pieces and carry on?

Synopsis: Donna Troy begins having disturbing dreams where she is a gothic warrior battling in a desolate world. In the real world, Jean Walters, Cheif Executive Officer of Optitron, assembles the members of Titans and Young Justice to San Francisco to make an offer to fund the teams. Before any decisions can be made, a mysterious cybernetic girl from the future invades the complex – and immediately engages combat with both teams. She severely injures Cyborg, Jesse Quick, Superboy, Argent, Empress, Tempest and Impulse, although Cyborg insists she didn’t mean to hurt anyone.

As the Titans and Young Justice tend to their wounded, the cybernetic girl remains on the loose seeking to interface with other cybernetic beings. She invades a STAR Labs facility and encounters what appears to be Superman, before shutting down herself. The remaining Titans and Young Justice members search for the girl, but find Superman. As Lilith tries to ‘read’ Superman, it becomes clear it is an adroid Superman that has been awakened by the cybernetic girl. Caught by surprise, Lilith has her neck snapped by the Superman android, killing her.

The Titans and Young Justice try to contain the rogue Superman Android as Arsenal awakens the cybernetic girl who may hold the key to its defeat. While successfully awakening her, Arsenal and Robin encounter Metamorpho. Troia tries valiantly to defeat the Superman Android, but he releases a deadly heat beam directly through her chest, killing her. Indigo arrives and shuts down the Superman Android, leaving Arsenal and Nightwing to mourn the fallen Troia. At Troia’s funeral, Nightwing declares to Arsenal that he is tired as seeing friends die and the Titans are officially over. Meanwhile, members of Young Justice, especially Wonder Girl, feel responsible for the tragic deaths. Elsewhere, Donna Troy awakens in a desolate world, and heeds a cry into battle.

Notes:
>> First appearance of Indigo in Graduation Day #1
>> Death of Omen [Lilith Clay Jupiter] in Graduation Day #2
>> Apparent Death of Troia [Donna Troy] in Graduation Day #3; she is actually reborn on another world
>> Last appearance of Young Justice and Titans; reform as Teen Titans in Teen Titans (third series) #1 [2003]

In this battle there can be no winners, because if either side loses, the world is lost!

Solicitation, issue #3: The 3-issue miniseries bringing together two of DC’s most legendary teams concludes, giving rise to a new team of Titans! Original Titans Nightwing, Donna Troy, Flash, Tempest and Arsenal risk all for the life of a friend as the rest of the Titans team up with the JLA to keep the stellar juggernaut that is endangering the earth at bay. The stunning conclusion establishes a new direction for the Titans that will lead to their new series, debuting next month. This issue features a 5-page epilogue that previews the new ongoing THE TITANS series, written by JLA/TITANS’ Devin K. Grayson with art by Mark Buckingham (BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE BAT) and Wade Von Grawbadger (STARMAN).

Titans/Legion of Superheroes: Universe Ablaze #1-4
March 2000 to June 2000

Cover Art: Dan Jurgens and Phil Jimenez

Synopsis: In the far future, the Legion of Superheroes unearth the Titans and they awake in the 30th century. At the same time, Universo and Brother Blood team up in a bid to rule the universe, with Universo trying to orchestrate events to his own advantage. The Titans and the Legion are able to defeat the combined might of Universo, Brother Blood, and Blackfire while Saturn Girl and Lilith travels to the past in astral form. Saturn Girl and Lilith are able to help the Titans defeat Brother Blood in the ‘present’ in Egypt. Their intervention alters the timestream, saving the slain Titans and preventing the chain of events that led to the Titans being put in stasis and Brother Blood’s 30th century resurrection. Thus, the heroes’ memories of the Titans/Legion team-up are no more than a foggy, half-remembered dream.

Notes:
>> This story is now regarded as out-of-continuity.
>> This series would have occurred some time between Titans #1 and Titans #16.
>> This series marks Blackfire’s first appearance since her ‘death’ in Final Night Preview in 1996. Here, she survives over 100 years in the future and has the ability of flight. She attributes her powers and lifespan to the H’San Natall experimentation. Blackfire would later return to the DC Universe proper with The Rann/Thanagar War (mini-series) #1 in 2005.
>> Brother Blood fights the Titans in the present, but was last seen as a docile monk in New Teen Titans (second series) #31 in 1987. This story gives no reason for the change.
>> Brother Blood appears next in the DC Universe proper in Outsiders #4-6 in 2003. He is killed by his son and successor in Outsiders #6.

Solicitation:  Elseworlds One-shot. This Elseworlds Special introduces a remote colony of humans who have carved a home out of an airless asteroid. Written and penciled by Manga Maestro Adam Warren, this mini-epic features the exploits of four teens who must defend their fragile colony against a threat that only they can see coming. Adopting the Titans names in honor of the legendary Earth heroes, Raven, Cyborg, Nightwing and Starfire stand their ground on a day that may be their last!

Synopsis: A remote colony of humans have carved a home out of an airless asteroid – but their fragile colony is in danger from a threat they can’t see coming! Jamadagni [Jama] Renuka inherited a genetic trait that allowed her to transform reality. The theory is ‘magi’ – a rare ability that enables users to alter the very fabric of reality. Jama trained under a Gememage Sensei that taught her how to hone her natural abilities. Jama learns to take existing myths and bring them to life! When her colony is threatened by a demonic creature, Jama seeks to recreate a group of heroes to act as the mythological group of Titans from ancient history.

Jama recreates the mythic pattern of a particular team of heroes – the Titans – to combat a great clysm. She gathers together four superhero archetypes: Raven, Cyborg, Starfire and Robin. Jamadagni [Jama] Renuka acts as the sorceress mage Raven; Gabrielle Marin-Reyes is recruited as the weepy Cyborg; Hikarimono, host to an alien lifeform, plays the token alien role of Starfire; and Alec Swanwick is implanted with a personality construct of an ancient hero to embody the group’s masked fighting man – Robin.

Knowing the myth pattern, Jama looks for the summoning of a demon. This takes form in the Xenobilogy lab, where a bio-engineered whale morphs into hideous creatures. Jama completes the myth recreation by assigning the members outlandish codenames and appropriate costumes. The Titans are successful in defeating the creatures – but at a terrible cost. Gabrielle is badly injured and Alec dies in battle. In all the mythological information, Jama knew “all superhero mythology had one charmingly naive concept: in the end, the good guys never ever lose!” Tragically, this is proven both true and false.

Notes:
>> This special is done in Manga style.
>> The story takes place 6,000 years in the future.
>> Originally, this story was to be featured in THE NEW TITANS ANNUAL 1996, a Legends of the Dead Earth tale.
>> First appearance of Witchie-poo [Jamadagni Renuka]; Titan Modeled After: Raven.
>> First appearance of Captain Thug [Alec Swanwick]; Titan Modeled After: Robin.

While in the present, Hourman, hero of the time-displaced Justice Legion A, unwittingly unleashed an insanity-inducing techno-plague upon Earth, leading to global paranoia with respect to the futuristic heroes, just as Savage’s past self decimated one city and threatened even more with nuclear destruction. Racing to eradicate the Hourman Virus, Justice Legion A rejoined the JLA in the future with the aid of the latter’s newest members, in time to discover Solaris unearthing the so-called “Knight Fragment,” believed to be the galaxy’s sole remaining Kryptonite- but in fact, a disguised Green Lantern power ring.

At some point, the relationship between Koriand’r and Ph’yzzon must have changed; for she remarked when he took off with his fleet to go up against whatever they faced, “While ours was a marriage more of politics than passion, I was never more proud of my husband”.

Earth’s heroes pondered this very dilemma when the malevolent Darkseid began his most insidious campaign, just as the planet’s champions were virtually defenseless. When the Godwave – the concentrated energies of The Source – spread out across the universe, the seeds of divinity were sown, giving rise to gods, demigods, and super-humans in its wake. As the Godwave contracted once more, Earth’s heroes experienced crises of faith as their abilities waned or were transformed entirely by the coruscating energy. Seizing the opportunity to claim all power in the universe for himself, Darkseid sought to capture the Godwave and pierce The Source itself-sparking a conflict joined by Earth’s metahumans and the gods of New Genesis. With Earth erupting in madness and chaos, the heroes linked their minds with the universe entire, returning the Godwave’s energy to The Source and imprisoning Darkseid on its impenetrable Wall.

Kingdom Come #1-4 [1996]: introduces a possible future in which a new generation of violent meta-humans is out of control. Some are villains, others fight crime. But even the most heroic of these new meta-humans lack the morals and restraint of their predecessors. In fact, Superman and many of his contemporaries long ago retired when it seemed the world preferred these new, ruthless super-heroes. But leaving the world’s protection to the new “heroes” proves to be a grave mistake. When Magog and Captain Atom corner the Parasite in Kansas, the terrified villain rips open Captain Atom, unleashing a nuclear explosion that obliterates the American heartland. In the aftermath of Kansas, Superman returns from seclusion to bring order to a meta-human community run amok. After a harsh struggle that costs many of the world’s meta-humans their lives, peace is finally restored. Superman remains active while eagerly awaiting the birth of a baby with his new love, Wonder Woman.

The Kingdom #1-2 [1998]: reveals how Gog is traveling backward through time, stopping each day to kill Superman in new and horribly inventive ways. But with each earlier murder of the Man of Steel, Gog creates a new time paradox, further weakening the fabric of reality. Hunter, of the “Linear Men” who guard the limeline, sets out to help stop this rampage… and protect a mysterious secret about the nature of space-time itself. Arriving on the day that Wonder Woman gives birth to her and Superman’s son, Hunter is unable to help the heroes of Earth stop Gog. The crazed, time-traveling villain takes the super-child and proceeds directly to 1998 Kansas to complete his mission of destruction. The only course of action left is for Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman to accompany Hunter back to 1998 and battle Gog there. But even if they succeed, their journey will alter the time stream so much that their own future, the world of KINGDOM COME, will be erased from reality! And so, as the three greatest heroes the world has ever known depart on their final mission, the people of the future wait for their lives, their entire reality, to be erased. But four young heroes – Nightstar, Offspring, Kid Flash and Ibn al Xu’ffasch join forces to somehow fight the inevitable doom that awaits them. Once in the past, the Kingdom heroes and the modern day heroes are able to defeat Gog. Strangely, the Kingdom future is unaffected. Rip Hunter then explains why: there are alternate timelines, not one true, single timeline [this is the concept known as Hypertime]. The Kingdom heroes then travel back to their proper time and place. Part of a series on ‘Kingdom’ one shots: Nightstar, Kid Flash, Offspring, Son of the Bat and Planet Krypton.

80-Page Giant #1, “because,” said Waid, ‘what says the Silver Age more than an 80-Page Giant?” The 50-page lead story by Waid and Eduardo Barreto served as the storylines’ concluding chapter, and the issue will feature a cover by Alan Davis. “The conceit of the stunt is to turn back the clock to the mid-’60s,” said Waid, “a time of go-go checks and Definitely Cool comics and Direct Currents promo pages.

The heroes set out to foil Agamemno’s plot and reclaim control of their own, virtuous bodies, but there’s one problem: Earth’s other heroes don’t know what’s happened.

The Sins of Youth Crossover Event [2000]: Original Solicit: DC Comics’ “Young Justice” has become a hit by extending the concept best-expressed by the series’ original working title: “JLA, Jr.” This March, DC and series writer Peter David will be extending the concept as far as they can, when all of DC’s adult heroes become teens and the teen heroes become adults, in the “Sins of Youth” specials.

Both of the “Sins of Youth” specials will be done by the regular “Young Justice” creative team of David and artists Todd Nauck and Larry Stucker.

Each of the newly adult members of Young Justice will team up with a once-again young adult hero, or heroes, in one of the one-shots.

“Sins of Youth” wraps up with “Young Justice: Sins of Youth” #2, on sale March 29. The two “Young Justice: Sins of Youth” book-ends are by the regular art team of Todd Nauck and Lary Stucker. “Eddie asked me to develop basic concepts for each of the one-shots,” David said. “So I drafted one-paragraph descriptions of the story beats which should be covered in them, although naturally the writers were given tremendous latitude in how those concepts were actually executed. Also, everything was run past me, making me a sort of co-coordinator of the whole thing.” Some fans might be surprised to see Lagoon Boy cropping up, considering David’s past as “Aquaman” writer.

Sins of Youth #1-2 [2000]: The media attack on Young Justice heats up while, at the same time, Old Justice and the mysterious group called the Agenda launch a more direct assault on our heroes, leading DC’s young heroes to become adults and the elder statesmen and women of the DCU to turn young. The heroes regroup for a final showdown with Klarion and the Agenda, but it’s hardly a kiddie fight. The Witch Boy has a surprise planned with the villains he’s collected, but if that fails, the Contessa has an ace up her sleeve that may surprise even Klarion! And there’s one last twist at the end that will make a lasting impression on Young Justice!

Sins of Youth Secret Files #1 [2000]: In a tale from the past, the Silver Age Teen Titans prevent rock-star Limbo from stealing an anti-aging formula. In the present, Goth uses real demonic Wildebeests to cause havoc. Goth revealed to be in league with the Contessa. Goth revealed to have taken various guises to lure teens to subversion, including Limbo. Origin of Goth.

Text from Secret Files: “The original Teen Titans was founded about ten years ago, when the sidekicks of various adult super-heroes joined together for youth-oriented missions. One such mission found the Titans going up against the Contessa, as she tried to gain possession of an experimental youth serum. Robin, Aqualad, Wonder Girl, and Speedy were exposed to the serum, which seemingly had no eftect-until ten years later, when the now-adult heroes were caught in Klarion’s spell and realized they had acquired an immunity to the magically induced aging. But the Titans’ more recent members weren’t so lucky. Damage matured into an extremely assured, stalwart adult hero; Argent blossomed into a ravishing woman possessed of grace and wonder; Cyborg was regressed into a tough-talking, rough-hewn teenage hoodlum; and Starfire reverted to a bratty, spoiled princess. After an encounter with a group of all-new Wildebeests, the Titans were able to assemble with the other chronologically imbalanced heroes and were restored to their true ages.”
