The DC Comics superteam just had a new movie hit theaters in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which ended with a post-credit stinger that teases the return of a beloved animated television series.
There is also a live-action series called Titans who, coming to the new DC streaming service and a new storyline playing out in DC Comics Rebirth with Damian Wayne in charge.
Add in the fact that the Teen Titans replaced the Justice League when it came to the DC Comics animated movie universe slate, and it is clear that the teenage superheroes are as popular as ever.
The Teen Titans have also been around for a very long time. The group first appeared in the ’60s as a team of sidekicks with Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad leading the way.
In the ’80s, the New Teen Titans presented the most critically acclaimed version of the team with Marv Wolfman penning the adventures of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg.
There have been many other versions, with one team morphing into Young Justice, and even the New 52 and DC Rebirth have made sure to add Teen Titans groups to their universes.
Throughout it all, there have been some iconic – and not so iconic – members of the team of teenage warriors.
