    How about the blue for aquatic life and Tempest as the avatar?

Other adult teams do not have this issue. A Mr Terrific or Animal Man aren't going to suddenly join the Titans next relaunch. So the Titans team and franchise is firmly stuck in the "young heroes" mold and it causes them to be constantly looked down on by other adult teams. This is fine for a team of actual teens, but when you have heroes that have been adults for decades, many who have had their own children, the Titans franchise is more of a detriment to them. They need to grow up and move on and leave the franchise to the actual young heroes (which there are tons now) instead of doing the same things they did as teens but are now two generations removed from being the "young heroes".
    Why would we want Mr. Terrific and Animal Man on the Titans? The team is more unique then that, and their a family in a way other DC teams (aside from the JSA) aren't.

    The Titans is always going to probably be a mix of adults and teenagers unless we get a pure Titans, adult, team and a separate teenage team but I don't think that necessarily limits the stories and development for those characters...especially since Titans book seems to be the only books that even care to bother with those characters.

    I didn't forget, but at that time I was just done, and I wasn't even sure if he's the same person, because the people who were still reading didn't mention anything about the prison planet.

    The family/friends aspect of Titans is the draw for me. I don't care what kind of missions they go on as long as it's a fun and exciting time with these characters bouncing off one another.

    And there is absolutely no problem with the titans having two separate teams. One for the next gen heroes and one for the veterans. I fail to see the issue with it and how it "limits" development. Honestly i think it can prove that the Titans can stand on their own as a respectable team. They don't need validation from anyone. No team does.


    Titans #32 did a great job of developing Mother Blood. It feels like villains never get the amount of development as heroes do. Villains are characters too.
    Imagine being proud to have negative traits. I canít relate.

    DC: Justice League, The Flash, Justice League Dark, Superman, Action Comics, Green Arrow, Justice League Odyssey, The Terrifics, Teen Titans, Titans, Brimstone, Female Furies, Damage, Heroes In Crisis

    Marvel: The Punisher, Cosmic Ghost Rider, Venom, X-23, Cloak and Dagger, Jessica Jones, Sentry

    Indies: Unnatural, Jeepers Creepers, Project Superpowers, Black Hammer, Ninja-K

    I finished the first four issues and I'm far from being disappointed. Great to read cool DC stories.

    I hope that Animal Man and even Vixen appears in Titans considering that they are in a story very related to the Red.

    These legends laughing in a restaurant like kids, while their children are playing, a page full of happiness, of light. I don't have words to describe how wonderful it is.

    I hope that, one day, we will be lucky enough to see our Titans reunited and with every member of their family (well ... Terry Long can stay dead, fair trade !).

    I haven't read them, but I agree. The one definitive difference with Justice League is that they are brought by friendship, not just necessity.

    So. Since there's a separate forum for the Teen version, I'm gonna jump and talk about Titans the grown up here.
    ...
    ...
    I don't know where to start. I want to say the first time I heard of Titans was when I read a Wizard interview of George Perez talking about his team, but that's still Teen Titans. It just have the same characters. Nightwing was discussed so that's why I thought it was Titans.

    I'm worried that this is exactly what Didio hates and what he's trying to erase from DC.
    Instead I've always thought this was the strength of DC: Legacy, Family, Friends, Light against darkness. Sadly, time changes... everything changes.

    I will always champion this book. It's probably my all time favorite series and I generally avoid picking favorites because they can change. The series drops a bit after Helfer takes over because he introduces some runaways (not a bad idea) but he wanted them to become the new Titans and take over the book. What???? Even then DC was trying to screw over the Titans in their own damn book.

    I don't think he even care that far. What he cares is that we have what he views to be excess characters. A bunch of adult characters with the same power and skill set as the Justice League. So he view them as irrelevant because he doesn't know how to market them. He doesn't know what's the point of these characters when there's already a team more popular with the same skill set.

    I hate it when people only see a powerset or a costume.
