Titans Together!

In CALLING ALL TITANS and TITANS TOGETHER, there’s a lot of characters converging and battling; So is it challenging to write episodes like that and balance all the characters? Amy Wolfram, writer of CALLING ALL TITANS, as well as Story Editor, was quick to answer with a resounding, "Yes!"

Amy added, "For part one, CALLING ALL TITANS, that was definitely a challenge to have 54 characters fighting each other – and to have it build in a way that’s satisfying. So we used a trick from that old shampoo commercial, ‘so she told two friends, and he told two friends, and so on…’ So it’s constantly building exponentially, which I think was really cool."

So how were each of the face-offs created? Amy revealed, "The mixing and matching [of the characters] from my scenes came a lot from the board artists; They’d say, 'Wouldn’t it be cool if…' So I would say, 'Yeah. Let’s go for it.'"

Story Editor Rob Hoegee shared some of the process in creating the elaborate character-shuffling: "When we were doing the season finale episodes, you should have seen us. We got the big conference room here at the studio, which has a table that’s like 25 feet long. And the table was full of note cards - and had the artists draw a little picture of the character on each note card. So were literally mapped out where each character was at what point and what they were doing. It was really quite daunting."

The conclusion of the ambitious storyline airs Saturday in TITANS TOGETHER, written by Rob Hoegee. Here's how the network describes the episode: All seems lost for young heroes across the globe: they have been spread far and wide, their lines of communication have been severed, and one by one, the Brotherhood of Evil takes them down. But as The Brain claims his victory is assured, one brave hero manages to slip thorough the Brotherhood of Evil's grasp.
