History


Originally designed for secure and stable records storage for WayneCo information services, this underground facility has been upgraded several times. Its location is still a secret.

Titans’ Lair is a one-level, modified cavern on the outskirts of Gotham City. The only electronic equipment available to members was a short-wave radio and a television receiver. The Titans received mail from teenagers needing help, and they sponsored airtime on a special television channel called the Hot Closed Circuit, so anyone could deliver a five-minute appeal to the Teen Titans. Wonder Girl usually picked up the mail, most of it coming from teens with questions or kids in trouble.

The Titans’ Helicopter emerged from behind a billboard advertising a television show. It is presumed that there is a river, possibly the Gotham River, close by, since Aqualad has access to the Lair from the North Atlantic Ocean.

The Titans abandoned the Lair for a time, during their training program with Loren Jupiter. They eventually reclaimed it as their headquarters. However, when Dr. Light discovered the location of Titans’ Lair, the Titans were forced to find a new headquarters.
