Teen Titans is a DC comic book series starring the eponymous Titans, a team of young superheroes. An animated spinoff series of the same name was created in 2003 which received universal praise from the majority of the online community.


The first incarnation of the Teen Titans appeared in the DC comic "The Brave and the Bold." The team was initially composed of Robin, Kid Flash, and Aqualad, who were later joined by Wonder Girl and Speedy. Each of the original Teen Titans had initially served as sidekicks or protégés to older superheroes (Batman, the Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern, respectively).[8]

The first issue of the Teen Titans comic books was published in 1966. The series ran until 1973 and was rebooted in 1976. This second run lasted until 1978. Since then the series has had several reboots and name changes. The series in its most modern form is being published to this day.[8]

An animated TV series based on the comics aired from 2003 to 2006.[8]

Multiple people have served as Robin; the second and third Robins have also been members of the team. He is a main character in the animated series.

The show still has a sizable fan base years after its cancellation.

TTG is officially making fun of fans of the original show. One of the recent episodes was titled, "The Return of Slade" and started out with Robin stating it was time to do battle with their worst enemy again. I was excited to finally see Slade on the show, one of the most serious and dark villains from TT. They gave him this big build up for a full minute before, after they leave the tower, we get a shit title card before they arrive back at the tower with Slade's mask in tow.

I fucking raged. They talked about how epic it was and how the adventure was structured much like the original series. (action, suspense with a touch of comedy) The rest of the episode has nothing to do with Slade. They litterally gave us the middle finger. Fuck you CN, fuck you producers and writers of TTG. Go fuck yourselves.
