"Trouble In Tokyo" Hits Shelves October 17th!

The ever-excellent has reported the release date of Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo.

Warner Bros has announced the direct-to-DVD movie "Trouble in Tokyo," releasing on October 17. The main feature runs for 75 mins, but WB has also included a special "lost" episode that didn't air. The episode was available through a Post Cereal promotion, and could be watched on with a special code obtained in a cereal box. The DVD will also contain "Robin's Underworld Race Challenge" - likely a game played using your remote. The suggested retail price for this set is $19.98.

Here's how they describe the release: "The Teen Titans - Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy - journey to Japan to find the notorious villain Brushogun. But crushing the criminal element on the other side of the ocean isn't as easy as they thought. When Robin is jailed for a brutal showdown with an attacker, the other Titans fall victim to Brushogun's evil end the Teen Titans forever!"

The original movie is written by series writer/producer, David Slack. For the full news item, click here.

Teen Titans writers visit the 31st century

Looks like the "Teen Titans" writers can't escape the traumas of teendom. While former Story Editor Rob Hoegee has taken the reins of Kids-WB!'s LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES with JLU's James Tucker, Titans fans will also see more familiar names in the writing credits. David Slack revealed, "While I've been on hiatus [from "Law & Order,"], I've just completed an episode of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES for the illustrious Rob Hoegee."

"Yeah, I was lucky enough to have both Amy [Wolfram] and David come in and do an episode or two," Rob noted. "I'm nearing the last legs of the first season of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES. And as reported, it will air this fall on the Kids-WB! on the CW network. It will be on at 11am just before THE BATMAN."

With Rob Hoegee, David Slack and Amy Wolfram writing the teens of tomorrow, Titans fans will surely want to visit the 31st century this fall on the Kids-WB!

Starfire's Brother in New Omega Men


As a concept, DC's Omega Men are a full 25 years old, but the property's been slowly and steadily making a comeback. The push goes full speed in October with a new six issue miniseries by Andersen (Batgirl) Gabrych and Henry Flint, pitting the Omegans against a new religion sweeping through the Vegan galaxy, with the mysterious "Lady" at its lead.

"Tigorr, the take-no-BS leader, Broot the pacifist powerhouse, Doc, the TV-Headed team physician who has learned to use his healing powers to devastating results, Elu the living cosmic storm, and Ryand'r, brother to Teen Titan, Starfire, who has a whole new set of powers and a brand-new codename which has everything to do with our story. We also will pick up a new lady-member who has roots deep in the DCU’s cosmic mythos and an old Omegan will return in an entirely new way."

Sounds like some new and interesting things are in store for Starfire's kid brother!

Trouble in Tokyo - and San Diego!

Two exciting TEEN TITANS news items came from a recent chat-style interview with WARNER BROS. at First off, Warner announced that the original animated feature TEEN TITANS: TROUBLE IN TOKYO will premiere next month at Comic Con!

<WARNER> We're having the world premiere of the new TEEN TITANS Original Animated Movie TEEN TITANS: TROUBLE IN TOKYO at Comic Con next month. It will be on Sat. night 7/22 at 7pm.

Another user asked about the possiblity of eventual TEEN TITANS full-season DVDs being presented in their original widescreen format:

<WARNER> Teen Titans and The Batman - we are considering widescreen on both as well as evaluating a Freakazoid release. As mentioned earlier we are reviewing a Mask of the Phantasm Special Edition. Thanks for your support!

So a possible widescreen release for TEEN TITANS may be in the future! Keep showing your support for the show, Titans fans!

You can read part one of the entire interview here and part two here. Thanks to the ever-vigilant Homestar14 for alerting us to these items on the Forums!

Titans: What's My Age Again?

Every once in awhile, people ask "How old is [insert Titans character] supposed to be?" So I've created a page that analyzes this topic. Now, comic books, as a rule, have a somewhat sliding age scale. You can only age Robin and the original sidekicks so much - because as they age, so do their mentors.

But after examining all printed evidence, I've come up with some solid age theories. And it's all been adjusted for the ONE YEAR LATER event! Check out the Titans Age Page for the full info!


Far more than any other team in the DC Universe, the Teen Titans went through the wringer between the end of Infinite Crisis and the start of their One Year Later storyline.

By the time the first One Year Later storyline started, the Titans looked little or nothing like any of their previous incarnations - Robin had just returned as leader, Cyborg was healing, Beast Boy and Raven were gone, and the active membership had been reduced to Ravager (Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke's daughter) and Kid Devil, the one-time sidekick of Blue Devil. Robin had a secret project in the basement, Wonder Girl was punching nearly anything that moved, and, oh yeah, the Brotherhood of Evil was back.

Got all that?

Good - because as things moved forward, the Titans (such as they are) engaged the Brotehrhood, only to have Plasmus rip Kid Devil's chest open. Seriously. The Doom Patrol turned up, and well…that's kind of where we pick things up with series writer Geoff Johns.

WWPhilly DC Nation News

The Pulse reports on a DC Nation panel from this weekend's Wizard World Philadelphia!

"Mas y Menos will be in the Teen Titans comics."

"When asked if there was a character that he would have liked to see killed during Crisis, Didio pointed to Nightwing as his choice. He felt as though the natural progression of the storyline should have lead to his death. Geoff Johns was vehemently opposed to killing Nightwing."

"Titans East may get its own book and Wendy and Marvin will be used sporadically in Teen Titans."

"Regarding the New Teen Titans and the idea of Deathstroke coming back, "you will eventually see that." (Johns)."

Newsarama reports:

"When each panelist was asked who they would have killed, if given their druthers, as part of Infinite Crisis, Johns declined to answer; however, Didio, after discussion, said, “I wanted Nightwing dead,” and explained that, if you follow the Nightwing story through the miniseries, you can see fairly clearly that he was supposed to die. Bob Wayne’s response to the question – “Speedball.”

"Johns clarified that the previously announced “Titans East” project he was said to be working on is a storyline in Teen Titans rather than a new series or miniseries. Also, speaking of Titans, Johns said that Wendy and Marvin will continue to appear, albeit sporadically in the series."
