The Teen Titans is a team of five young heroes operating out of Jump City. Lead by Robin, its other members are Beast Boy, Cyborg, Raven and Starfire.

History

Origin

Dick Grayson, Batman's first Robin, had just left Gotham City and travelled across the United States to Jump City to escape his mentor's shadow.

Victor Stone had recently been in a bad car accident that almost killed him. To save their son, Stone's parents rebuilt his body with robotic parts. Stone was reborn but came to despise his parents for turning him into a freak. Stone ran away from home, relocating to Jump City and redubbing himself Cyborg.

Raven, daughter of the interdimensional demon Trigon, escaped her father's tyranny and travelled to Earth, taking refuge in Jump City as well.

Garfield Logan, also known as the hero Beast Boy, had too just arrived in Jump City following his decision to leave the adoptive superhero family the Doom Patrol to practice super heroics on his own.

The four teenagers, having no knowledge of one another, all sprung into action when an alien princess named Starfire landed in their city, trying to escape capture by her slavers the Gordanians. Together, the five heroes teamed up to fight off the Gordanians, and, impressed at their skills as a team, decided to officially become Jump City's teenage protectors - the Teen Titans.[1]

The Titans picked a spot for their headquarters on a remote island in the city's harbor. There, Cyborg designed the team a tower, appropriately in the shape of a giant capital T, which would become Titans Tower.

Early Adventures

In one of their first real missions as a team, the heroes were attacked by Jinx, Gizmo, and Mammoth, three graduates of H.I.V.E. Academy under orders from the mysterious malefactor Slade. The Titans lost two battle against the H.I.V.E. graduates, allowing the villains to commandeer Titans Tower. The Titans regrouped and defeated the H.I.V.E., solidifying their strength as a team. [2]
