In the far reaches of space, an alien threat loomed – one that would soon reunite the Titans of past and present. Having collected a planet-size assortment of technological debris, Victor Stone journeyed to Earth to turn its moon into a new Technis world and populate it with his Titans allies. The JLA and the Titans first clashed, then united, eventually freeing Victor from alien influence. Following this encounter, the original five Titans decided to rebuild the team, inviting five other members to join as well.
A new Titans Tower was built using some of the schematics laid out by Vic Stone during the Technis Imperative. Now reforming, the Titans once again settled on a small island located by the East River in New York City.
The New Titans Tower wasn’t actually a tower at all. Enemies engaging in attempts to destroy T-tower would find their efforts wasted on an essentially invulnerable holograph. The real titans base was actually subterranean, and provided new security measures, improved information control and consolidated services and support for the Titans. These included increased and secure guest facilities with automated hospital and surgical theaters, increased laboratory space with future expansion and heightened computer sensitivity and global information systems penetration.
The Titans Tower soon became overcrowded with members and non-members alike; In addition to the Titans, the Tower was populated with Lian Harper, Dolphin, Cerdian, Rose Wilson, five kids who escaped from a D.E.O. orphanage, and a mysterious youth known as Epsilon. Epsilon was eventually revealed to be under possession by a D.E.O. orphan named Kevin. When the real psychotic Epsilon emerged, he cut a swath of destruction that resulted in the utter destruction of the second Titans Tower.
Although Tempest was working on a new design to rebuild Titans Tower, this group of Titans disbanded before it was constructed.
