WHY HE'S COOL
Teenagers with superpowers, whats not to like? And while still having to deal with parents, dating, and homework, they also have to deal with supervillains and superhero mentors! So life isn't easy, but at least they have each other and awesome superpowers.
The Teen Titans is one of those concepts that has been re-written far too many times. These days not even DC is really sure of their history. But going by what was originally in print, they started as a bunch of teenage side kicks, tired of being told what to do. The founding members were Robin (Batman's sidekick), Aqualad (Aquaman's sidekick), and Kid-Flash (The Flash's sidekick). By the second issue Wonder Girl (not a sidekick) joined the group. Speedy (Green Arrow's sidekick) was the next to join, followed by many others, like Bumble Bee, Hawk and Dove.
In the mid-1980's the team got a serious relaunch, adding non-sidekick teen heroes Raven, Starfire, Cyborg, and Changeling (a.k.a. Beast Boy). This new line-up became a huge hit, and the Titans remain very popular to this day. As time went by, the original members started to grow-up and changed their name and appearance. Robin became Nightwing, Wonder Girl became Troia, Speedy became Arsenal, Aqualad became Tempest and when the Flash died, Kid-Flash became the Flash. Then a third generation of heroes started to appear, a new Wonder Girl, a new Superboy, a new Robin, a new Kid-Flash (or Impulse). In more recent comics, adding to the confusion, Cyborg was now never a member of the Teen Titans and is now a founding member of the Justice League.
Funded by Bruce Wayne, the Teen Titans operate out of a “T” shaped building on a small island in the East River, in New York City. Cyborg and his father designed it.
There has yet to be any live-action Teen Titans production. Although Robin has been seen often in Batman movies, and Cyborg will be seen in the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE movie. And currently on Cartoon Network, you can watch a silly cartoon version of them, in TEEN TITANS GO.
