    Default Titans Together! Teen Titans Appreciation

    DC Forum Appreciation Thread rules:

    1) No negative comments about the honoree of this thread. It's an appreciation thread, not a non-appreciation one.

    2) No negative discussion about any competitors of the honoree of this thread (i.e. John Stewart in the Hal Jordan thread). No ifs, ands, or buts. Find another non-appreciation thread to do that, just not here.

    3) No negative comments about other versions of the character. For example, if you like the DCU version of Cyborg, but hate the DCnU version (or visa versa), just appreciate the earlier version and keep your comments about the latter to yourself.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The greatest teen superhero team of all time Teen Titans have seen many iterations over the years (some of them more memorable than others).

    What is your favorite character / team roster / creator / toy / era / element and why?

    For me I think my favorite era would need to be Teen Titans volume 3 (2004-2011) by Geoff Johns and current Justice League United artist Mike McKone. It looked really fresh and clean and drew on the legacy aspect a lot between the team, their Titan predecessors and their mentors in the Justice League. I really loved that iteration of the logo as well!

    I haven't been into comics for 15-20 years, and only occasionally bought random books on a whim. I truthfully didn't follow the titans before, but knew the basic history etc. I was always a Robin/Nightwing fan so I figured I'd look into them. Recently I've started collecting the 1980's New Teen Titans/Tales of Teen Titans run. It's just a fun book from a simpler time, haha! I enjoy the interaction and dialogue between team members and the classic story lines.

    Favorite members: Robin/Nightwing and Changeling

    Fingers crossed the new incarnation later this year is good (but I'm not holding my breath!)

    Wolfman/Perez New Teen Titans will always be the true Titans to me, but I really liked the Young Justice show and wish they would've went that way with the new 52 reboot. It was the best of all worlds.

    Wow 20 years of back issues! That's a lot of catching up I guess the Titans were pretty quiet in the 90's though weren't they? I think I vaguely remember Team Titans which I haven't been brave enough to read yet. The New Teen Titans series was excellent, those books have a really high quality feel to them also compared to other books of the time, I think they had better paper quality

    I miss Young Justice too, what a great series! I'm still hoping that one day it gets picked up again (or a similar kind of series) by someone who can make it work without toy sales to keep it alive.

    Great pics dupersuper!

    Can anyone pick what this Titans picture by Cliff Chiang is an homage to?

    Team Titans isn't really worth reading unless you want to know every little bit of Titans history.

    & in those 20 years Nightwing & StarFire was supposed to be Married I'm just here still waiting for DC to make them a Couple aready, I hate how they turning Dick into other batman that has many Lovers,

    I see couples like Black Canary & Green Arrow or batman & Catwoman even tho he has many lovers Selina & Bruce belong together aswell, just as Nightwing & StarFire but they always make Dick seem like this cold person sometimes around Starfire which he's not, I hope DC one day get it together & make them official.


    I loved every minute with both in the Teen Titans Movie aswell <3

    i miss the sense of community that used to exist amongst the young heroes of the DCU. i know the New 52 was a reboot and required world building but i think it's time to establish the younger heroes as a larger family similar to Young Justice. i would also love to see Dick Grayson back as the leader of the next generation of heroes. being the best leader in the DCU was a huge part of Nightwing's character that has sadly been removed in the New 52. we live in a world where Jason Todd is a better leader than Dick Grayson. sad.

    TITANS TOGETHER!

    I'm going to be getting the Archives edition of this. I have never read Teen Titans before in my life, but they were suggested by a friend, and I have no doubt I will love them.
    I am thinking I'll probably love them just as much as I love Claremont's New Mutants.

    TT Earth 1 was a complete dud, visually and conceptually.

    Thank Jelenic and Horvath, there was Teen Titans Go! S1 to lift my spirits.

    I'm so glad to hear someone else say something positive about TTG. I absolutely love it. No, it's not the same as the old TT series from 2004 and that one will always be near and dear to me because I grew up with it, but it's really fun and charming and it can actually be really hilarious. I have the complete season one and I've been re-watching it with my brother, who's seeing it for the first time and is really enjoying it (and has never, ever expressed any interest in it) and I'm enjoying it even more the third or fourth time through. I notice little easter eggs they throw in for older viewers and DC fans.

    What does everyone else think about TTG? I understand it's not for everyone, but I've really enjoyed it!

    Late to the party, but yeah, my thoughts mirror RONIN on this one.
