|~ Quote about the Teen Titans.|
Teen Titans are an organization of young vigilantes banded together to fight crime. Beginning as a group of sidekicks looking to distinguish themselves from their mentors, they would go on to expand into a world wide establishment.
The Teen Titans are the premier team of young heroes in the DCU. The team fights for the greater good and to recruit other young heroes like them.
The first time the sidekicks joined forces was when Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad joined together to stop the menace of Mr. Twister in Hatton Corners.
Their second meeting was more eventful: Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, now joined by Wonder Girl and Speedy, fought against their mentors, who had been possessed by the evil Antithesis. At this second meeting, the five youngsters decided to become a team, and the Teen Titans were born. Robin naturally became the leader of the original Teen Titans.
The sidekicks would continue to operate with their mentors, as well as spending time with their peers in the Teen Titans. Speedy elected for part-time membership, and the remaining four became the core team.
During this time, the four established a headquarters called the Titans Lair, and responded to teenagers needing help.
Soon, responsibilities in Atlantis forced Aqualad to take leave from the team, and Speedy stepped in as a full time member.
Mr. Jupiter Enters the Picture
After they accidentally brought about the death of Dr. Arthur Swenson, the group gave up their costumed identities for a time. It was at the urging of financier Loren Jupiter that Kid Flash, Speedy, Wonder Girl, Hawk and Dove joined his program of training teens to utilize their potentials; Also joining the program was the mysterious Lilith and Mal Duncan.
Now rejoined by Robin, the Teen Titans continued their adventures. However the group later disbanded after helping an old man rid his estate of a demonic race of creatures.
The second version of the Teen Titans was formed after the young heroes defeated Dr. Light, who had summoned them all in an attempt to get revenge on the JLA by attacking their young sidekicks. All of the original Titan members eventually returned (with Mal taking on new identities such as the Guardian and Hornblower), plus new recruits such as the Bumblebee and Joker's Daughter. After a while, the Titans realized that they had their own lives to lead, and the group disbanded.
The New and Improved Titans
Some time after the original team was disbanded, a woman named Ravenappeared, attempting to gather together a new group of Titans. She convinced Robin to start recruiting, and they recruited Wonder Girl, Changeling, and the cyborg Vic Stone. Kid Flash declined, trying to be Wally Westinstead. Raven, an empath, needed him on the team, and so she interfered with his emotions, made him feel that he loved her, to convince him to join. On their first case they met the final member of the team, the alien princess Starfire.
They elected to keep the team going, making their headquarters in New York.
