When the Titans were effected by Klarion the Witch Boy’s aging spell, the demonic Goth once again took advantage of their distress, this time allying himself with the conniving Contessa Erica Alexandra del Portenza. To this end, he created an army of upgraded Wildebeests. These Wildebeests looked like their predecessors, but once unmasked, were revealed to be actual wildebeest-like man-monsters. Goth commanded these ferocious new Wildebeests to attack JFK International and Grand Central Station, but the Titans eventually contained the savage creatures.
Beast Boy and Flamebird later encountered a pack of these same Wildebeests in Brooklyn, and naturally assumed the ‘beests posed a serious threat. But they soon uncovered creatures’ keeper – an older gentleman who had trained and domesticated the man-monsters in an effort to keep his neighborhood safe.
