Geoff Johns Hints at Titans Future
On Teen Titans #35: "I hope you enjoy what we've got coming up next. In 35 - Find out: What the Brotherhood of Evil are up to! What is Kid Devi's deal with Blue Devil? What is Ravager's greatest fear? And more..."
On plans for Red Star: "Nope. Absolutely NO PLANS for Red Star. He is NOT one of our favorite characters. He WON'T be featured soon... (Tony, think they believe me?)"
On the possibility of a Ravager/Robin romance: " Hahahaha... Just wait."
On Wendy and Marvin: "Sorry to say they aren't going anywhere. If it makes you feel any better they aren't actually team members - as someone else said they're the equivelant of Ma Hunkel in JSA. Caretakers, normal kids (all but geniuses) with ties to another DCU character that will watch over the day-to-day maintenance of the Tower. Plus, they have the files on every Titan that was a member during the missing year...which where QUITE a few."
On Donna Troy in INFINITE CRISIS and beyond: "Donna bought Nightwing a few precious seconds to get to Alex and to stop him from destroying Superman, Superman-2 and Wonder Woman. But what happens to her and her team is going to unfold over the next year. I think you'll all be very interested... ...especially with where Donna ends up."
On Teen Titans future: "Wow. When was the last time we had this much discussion on an issue...awesome. I will only say with 35, which is out I THINK in 3 weeks...you'll see more of the new members, Rose and Eddie, more of the new Brotherhood of Evil and, trust me when i say this, you'll see how insanely hard Tony is working. His art was great on #34...it's twice as good on #35...and twice that good on #36. He's doing some simply stunning work and I couldn't ask for a better partner on this book."
"We just spent an hour yesterday talking through the next storylines taking us through the year and I'm incredibly excited with where we're taking the book. Is it new? Yes. Is that scary? Hell, yes. Superboy was my favorite of the Titans. He was a hero through and through. That's why this team has to continue to evolve...and they're not going to do it alone. Thanks for all the comments. Keep them coming. And look for more mysteries, secrets exposed and the unexpected next issue. As Kid Devil said -- it's the "new" new Teen Titans. We're blazing a new trail. Hope you enjoy the ride."
