Teen Titans | Comics

Apart from doing their vigilantism work as sidekicks, Aqualad, Kid Flash and Robin were also active as a solo hero. When Mister Twister started trouble at Hatton Corners, these young heroes stopped him by working as a team and they decided to continue their union by calling themselves Teen Titans with approval from their mentors Aquaman, Batman and The Flash.

Soon, they recruited Donna Troy as original Wonder Girl and Speedy to the team and start operating from a former Wayne Enterprises warehouse. When the mysterious tele-empathetic teen superhero Raven approaches Cyborg, Beast Boy, Kid Flash, Robin, Starfire and Wonder Girl for help fighting the menace of her demonic father Trigon, they re-builded the team as New Teen Titans.

In the aftermath of “Zero Hour”, Nightwing passed the leadership mantle to Arsenal, following a bunch of new recruits like Changeling, Damage, Impulse, Kyle Rayner, Minion, Mirage, Supergirl and Terra. Then Donna Troy dies on “Graduation Day” and Nightwing formed The Outsiders. This apparently left Beast Boy, Cyborg and Starfire in their San Francisco based Titans Tower.

Bart Allen as Impulse, Tim Drake as the new Robin, Superboy and a new Wonder Girl re-formed the team again to deal with Deathstroke and the Church of Blood, led by a new Brother Blood. The team was also active during Identity Crisis, Infinite Crisis and Countdown to Final Crisis. The older members of the team later formed "Titans" and Cyborg reforms Titans East.
