As such, elements of this character's history have been altered in some way from the previous incarnation. For a complete list of all versions of this character, see our disambiguation page.|
The Teen Titans is a team of young heroes. The original team, led by the original Robin, was erased from memory when ten years were stolen from the timeline. As such, when he founded his own team, Red Robin thought he was the first to use the name. After being disbanded by Red Robin, a new team led by the third Robin, was formed.
Sometime during the missing ten years, the original Teen Titans faced off against the incredibly powerful Mister Twister. In order to prevent him from unleashing evil upon the whole universe, the Titans had to completely forget Twister, the Teen Titans, and their past lives. This was accomplished when Omen erased the memories of everyone who had known about the Titans, including the Titans themselves. These memories remained erased until Twister continued to grow in power without the aid of the Titans, starting the whole ordeal over again. The Titans were able to banish Twister back to his realm, defeating him once and for all. They did not know, however, that there was another, forgotten member: Wally West. After the events of DC Rebirth, several of the original members formed another team know simply as the Titans.
It's Our Right to Fight
Unaware that there had been a previous team using the same name, Red Robin organized a team of teenaged metahumans known as the Teen Titans to combat the evil organization N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and its leader, Harvest. This new team consisted of Red Robin, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, Solstice, Bunker, and Skitter. They later recruit Kon-El, aka Superboy, a clone that was created by N.O.W.H.E.R.E.
The team soon finds themselves captured by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and are forced to fight their lives alongside other metahumans such as the time-displaced Legion Lost.
Death of Family
As ordered by her father Raven attempted to infiltrate the team bring alongside her an enthralled Beast Boy in order to take over the world
When all of Earth's greatest heroes were gone and the Crime Syndicate had taken over the world, the Teen Titans attempted to challenge the Crime Syndicate, but were easily overpowered by Johnny Quick and Atomika and were then flung into the timestream. During their travels, Wonder Girl suggested that Raven use her powers to manipulate the energy within the time stream. Raven succeeded in anchoring the Titans with her soul-self, teleporting them through time. The Titans arrived 20 years into the future, where the Jonathan Lane Kent, has massacred most of Earth's superheroes, leaving only a few, including Beast Boy, now calling himself Beast Man, and Rose Wilson. Superboy (Kon-El) and Jon battled, and Kon triumphed. But Kon was sent elsewhere by an unknown power, and a severely injured Jon was swapped unknowingly as Superboy by Logan and Wilson.
Trial of Kid Flash
The Titans travel to the 30th Century where they arrive on an alien planet and learn that Kid Flash is actually a rebel leader and war criminal, Bar Torr. While Kid Flash awaits his trial his teammates learn more about his past. When the trial goes under way Kid Flash admits to being guilty and the rest of his future resistance come and attack. During the fight Kid Flash and Superboy clash. During the fight, Bart's sister convinces him to give up. The fight ends and Bart is on trial again and is sentenced to a prison planet. As Bar Torr is being taken away, Solstice reveals her feelings to him and how she is willing to follow him anywhere. Which convinces a judge to send her to him. The remaining Titans leave Kid Flash and Solstice in the future, returning to their original time and are united with Bunker, Beast Boy, and Skitter. Meanwhile as Raven spends some time alone she finds out that their journey has severed Trigon's control over her.
After an unknown amount of time, Red Robin founded a new team with an almost identical lineup (minus Kid Flash, Skitter, Solstice, and Superboy). The new team encountered an A.I.-powered android known as Algorithm. The android was committing terror attacks against S.T.A.R. Labs in Manhattan. While investigating a possible connection between the android and S.T.A.R., Red Robin was attacked by Algorithm. After a brief skirmish, he destroyed the android. He then met Manchester Black, a high-level official for S.T.A.R. Black admitted that S.T.A.R. was responsible for the construction of the android, but not it going rogue. He then offers a partnership between S.T.A.R. and the Titans, a "Team up". Red Robin then accepts and introduces the Titans to Black.
While fighting several teenagers who had taken power-granting pills and had gone on a rampage, the Titans encountered Tanya Spears, a teenager with superstrength. She assisted them in their fight against the punks. After returning to Beast Boy and Bunker's apartment, she explained to them that she had been given her powers by Karen Starr, otherwise known as Power Girl. After Tanya and Wonder Girl got into an argument with Tim over the way the Titan's operate, Cassie and Wonder Girl left and went to Cassie's apartment, where her mother was waiting. Soon after, Manchester Black approached them to tell them of a coming attack that would be worse than any of Algorithm's attacks. While taking, the S.T.A.R. Labs facility on Governor's Island exploded.
After discussing what their next course of action should be, the Titans teleported to the ruins on Governer's Island. Black explained that the terrorists, who were already in the Vault of S.T.A.R., were planning on unleashing weapons of mass destruction that were built by S.T.A.R. After capturing one of the terrorists, Raven examined his mind. She uncovered the terrorists' ultimate plan: to destroy Manhattan with an extremely large explosive device known as "The Eraser." After a brief skirmish, the Titans were able to prevent the terrorists from activating the Eraser. They then unknowingly used the terrorists' holo-projector to announce that Manhattan was no longer in danger. It also informally announced Tanya Spears as the new Power Girl, and member of the Teen Titans.
Because of their saving New York, the Titans increased in fame dramatically. Beast Boy was offered a role to be the host of Comedy Tonight. Raven protected her tribute band, Dark Mistress form an impromptu riot. Wonder Girl kept her gang of Wonder Girls from beating up a stalker. After their popularity surge, Red Robin became suspicious of Manchester Black, who seemingly enjoyed the attention. He was trying to get more information about the most powerful weapon that had been created by S.T.A.R., one even more powerful than the Eraser. Black assures him that it doesn't exist, but Red Robin isn't convinced. Black then shows him a video of Superboy, who had supposedly killed many people.
Return of Superboy
After seeing the video, Red Robin does research to see if it is actually true. Unfortunately, it was, and the entire world was aware of it! Tim later met with Cassie, who was extremely distraught over it.They later went to see if they could find Kon. Tim calls on the Titans to join together to find Kon to help. However, they did not know that a Durlan named Ra'ut L'lwer had helped Kon escape from J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. Manhunter, who was seeking to kill Kon for what he had done, found them at Gar and Miguel's apartment. Kon lashed out at him and knocked him unconscious. Once again, Tanya and Cassie got into an argument with the rest of the Titan. It ended with the Titans leaving with Kon and Ra'ut, while Cassie and Tanya talked with Manchester Black. He offered them a place on S.T.A.R. Labs' new team: The Elite, to which they accept.
While training with their new team, Cassie received a call from Tim, who was trying to get her and Tanya back on the team. She declined, and unknowingly helped Black track Tim and the Titans to an abandoned steel mill in Youngstown, Ohio. However, it was a trick, and the Titans were in downtown Chicago. Even though they were trying to lay low, Miguel, Gar, and Raven were recognized, and they attracted a large crowd. While surrounded by the crowd, a woman was pushed onto the tracks of the L-train. Gar and Miguel fully revealed themselves to save her, but Kon swooped in just before the woman was killed. Because Kon was still technically an escaped murderer, the police responded immediately. Manchester Black and S.T.A.R. also noticed, and decided on sending their team on their first mission. The Titans escaped before the Elite showed up, but, with the help of Klarion, they found the Titans soon after.
The Titans and the Elite argue over what should happen to Kon, but it turns into an all-out brawl. They continue to fight until Superboy escapes Wonder Girl. The Elite then teleport back to Black, who had been talking to Tim and Raven. After trying to read Black's mind, Raven was knocked unconscious because of how dark Black's mind was. Before Tim escaped, Black told him that, if they wanted to clear Kon's name, they would have to break into the Metropolis Armory Ward, or the M.A.W.
After escaping Black and the Elite, the Titans went into hiding once again, trying to plan their next course of action. They eventually decide to break into the M.A.W. to help Kon, who is in hiding. The next day, they break in. Raven tells them that the person she saw in relation to Kon in Black's mind is Despero. In order to get to Despero, they would have to temporarily let every inmate out, including Blockbuster and Livewire. Right before many of the inmates escaped the facility completely, Kon showed up, and took them down.
All of a sudden, Tim, Kon, Cassie, and Bart were transported to a place that appeared to be the apartment where they first joined together to be the Titans. Afer seeing various visions and images of their past, it was revealed that Harvest was the one responsible for it. Harvest attempted to win Kon over, but the Titans retaliated. But, Kon convinced them to stop. He told them that they were the best heroes—and the best friends he had ever known. He later disappeared with alongside Harvest, leaving Tim, Bart, and Cassie alone in the illusion.
Because there were still convicts roaming the halls of the prison, Miguel, Raven, and Gar were forced to keep them at bay. The main person they faced was the incredibly powerful Doctor Psycho, and they were soon all taken out. But, when Psycho tried to read Raven's mind, he was immediately put into a catatonic state over the dark and horrendous things he saw. They were then able to round up the rest of the escaped convicts.
Soon after, Tim found a way to hack the teleport that Harvest used to bring them to his lair. After the Titans were all back together, the prison guards started shooting at them for breaking in.
Nearby, Manchester Black was trying to convince Despero to help him defeat the Titans once and for all. But, Chimera was actually posing as Despero to lead Black into a trap. They took Black down soon after, and the Elite met with them to assess the situation. All of a sudden, Alpha Centurion showed up to take them into S.T.A.R. Labs' custody.
On the Run
While being taken to S.T.A.R., the Titans were rescued by Doomed. Almost immediately, Alpha Centurion showed up with the Pax Galactica to take the Titans back into custody but was defeated in the process. Tim joined Red Hood, who was working to take down the anti-Robin movement.
After fleeing the scene, the Titans split up. Raven, Beast Boy, Bunker, and Power Girl stayed in Tim's hideout in Gotham, and Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, Chimera, and Doomed went to the estate of one of Cassie's "friends" in Kane County outside of Gotham.
After feeling an immense amount of dark thoughts in Gotham, Raven and her group went to investigate. They found Professor Pyg making the cast and crew of a high school play "perfect." They were about to take him down, but Pyg's Dollotrons surrounded them and knocked them out. They woke up strapped down on gurneys, ready for Pyg to transform them into his dollotrons. They also discovered that Pyg had drawn some of Gar's blood, and transfused it into a young woman. The woman soon transformed into a large, monstrous creature as a result of the transfusion. Pyg escaped during the struggle that ensued, and Raven was able to bring the woman back to her human form. Unfortunately, they found out that Pyg had stollen blood from all of them.
After leaving the theater, they went back to Tim's hideout, where Tim met them. While discussing the increasingly dangerous situation, a group of Durlans showed up, demanding for them to hand her over. After a brief struggle, Chimera agreed to go with them. They then left, leaving the Titans in the ruins of Tim's hideout. Right after she left, they noticed that Bart had left also. He left them a message stating that he went back to the future to be with Solstice. Reiser then told Tim that he should go back to Metropolis. Tim agreed, and Raven brought him back to his home. A week later, the remaining titans took down a small gang in Heaton, Pennsylvania, where they decided to stay for the time being.
Who Is Wonder Girl?
While hiding in Waynesboro, Virginia, Wonder Girl told Tim that she felt the need to come out of hiding. She later went off on her own, meeting with Ravne, Tanya, and Beast Boy. Even though Raven tried to talk to her, Cassie flew off to London. Shortly after, the Titans showed up just in time to fight hyena-men that were attacking Cassie. After defeating them, Cassie went into an apartment, where she found her father's head in stone. Cassandra, Cassie's aunt, showed up and offered Cassie a chance to help her restore her father to life. Cassie and Cassandra teleported away with the other Titans, leaving the Tim in the ruins of Wonder Woman's apartment. Wonder Woman then asked him what had happened.
After explaining who Cassandra to Tim, they followed her and the Titans to Delphi, Greece. After a fight involving the Titans, Cassandra, and the hyena-men, Wonder Woman used her Lasso of Truth to discover whether or not Cassandra was telling the truth. She found out that she is, in fact, telling the truth, and that Cassie is actually her niece, too.
After deciding to bring Cassie's father, Lennox, back to life, they ventured into the ruins at Delphi to find the Rod of Asclepius. After debating whether they should give Wonder Woman or Cassandra the Rod, Cassie gave it to Cassandra, who then used it to heal her throat and voice. Cassandra then froze the Titans and Wonder Woman with her newly-healed voice. Cassie was able to escape, and then ripped Cassandra's throat apart just as her father had done many years earlier. Cassie then used the remainder of the Rod's power to heal Cassandra's throat, but not her voice. Soon after, Wonder Woman took Cassandra to Mount Olympus, where she could be judged by the Gods of Olympus for what she had done. Even though Wonder Woman offered to take Cassie with them, she declined, stating that the Titans were her family.
After being upset by an internet troll, the Brain unleashes mind-control devices upon the animals and visitors of the Central Park Zoo. After being defeated by the Titans, Raven temporarily put the Brain and Mallah in Azarath to keep them out of trouble. The Titans then realized that, during the battle, Tim had disappeared. He had been kidnapped by Amanda Waller's operatives and was taken to Belle Reve.
After discovering that Waller had taken Tim, the Titans broke into Belle Reve to rescue Tim, proving waller wrong that they were helpless without him. She told them that the original reason she had taken him was to see whether or not they were "Squad material". Fortunately, they weren't.
While in New Orleans, the Titans found out from Batman that Amanda Waller had used her connections in the government to have all criminal charges against the Titans dropped. During their call with him, all of the power and electronics in the city suddenly went down. Soon after, Raven shielded them from a mysterious wave that went over the city. They discovered that H.I.V.E. Queen was responsible. She was able to take control of all of the citizens' minds save the Titans. After the Queen tried to read Tim's mind, she was knocked out because he had a set a "chaos trap" fueled by Raven's dark magic.
After returning to New York, the Titans went to the hottest underground "club" where they planned on relaxing. Unfortunately, many of the clubgoers started transforming into green hybrid animals. The Titans deduced that it was most likely the result of Professor Pyg stealing Gar's blood. While searching for the source, Tim and Gar discovered that Sister Blood had acquired the blood from Pyg to experiment upon. The Titans were able to defeat and capture Sister Blood and the Brotherhood of Blood.
The Titans met after Tim Drake's apparent death to reminisce. They each recalled their fondest memory involving Tim. Miguel brought a time where he and Tim went shopping for clothes for Tim's high school alumni event. Tayna mentioned a time where Tim unknowingly helped her accept that she could be her own Power Girl without having to live up to the original Power Girl's image. Raven told how he helped her cope with her anger and hurt over what her father had done. Gar explained that, out of all of the Robins, Tim was the one who he had the highest for. Cassie told of a time when she and Tim saved several people from a large fire.
After recollecting for a while, they were unsure what their next course of action should be. They all agreed to go their separate ways and disband the team. Raven decided to connect with family in San Francisco. Miguel dropped off Gar at the airport. Gar was planning on meeting with a cousin who had connections to show business. Cassie and Tanya said that they would continue fighting evil as Wonder Girl and Power Girl.
Demon's Fist Hunt
After Tim Drake disbanded the Teen Titans, he was soon succeeded by Damian Wayne after he had turned thirteen. He began to recruit his team by knocking out and kidnapping Kid Flash, Beast Boy, Raven, and Starfire. When his kidnappees woke up in Damian's base on the west coast, he explained to them that a group of Metahumans known as the Demon's Fist had targeted all of them for assassination. Then the members of the Demon's Fist arrive at the underground base and battle the new Teen Titans. The Titans narrowly escape on Damian's jet and camp out in the forests of California. Then Damian leaves the new Titans and returns to Infinity Island, the headquarters of the League of Assassins

- Teen Titans were created by Bob Haney, George Kashdan and Bruno Premiani, first appearing in Brave and the Bold Vol 1. However, in the rebooted Prime Earth continuity their first appearance as part of the DC Universe is in Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth's New 52 Teen Titans series.
- Their fight against the Brotherhood of Blood was most likely the Titans' last adventure before Tim Drake's "death."
- Long before the events of Titans Hunt, references were made to another group going by the name of the Teen Titans, but this seemed to be retconned after the issues were published into trade paperback format, with panels of dialogue being altered or erased. However, this is now known to be true. There was an incarnation of the Teen Titans formed by Dick Grayson before Red Robin founded his team.
- In contrast, it was said that Arsenal, Nightwing, and Starfire were once members of an earlier iteration of the Teen Titans that preceded the one created by Red Robin by several years. This was later stated as true. With the exception of Starfire, an original Titans team including Nightwing (then Robin), Arsenal (then Speedy), and Tempest (then Aqualad) did, in fact, exist before Tim formed his version of the Teen Titans. Later on, it was revealed that Starfire was, in fact, a member of Dick's team.
- A similar event happened in the Batwoman trade paperback, with a panel of Flamebird referring to herself as a Teen Titan and having battled Deathstroke being altered. As of this point, there have been no other references to Flamebird being a Titan.
