TEEN TITANS: ONE YEAR - DIFFERENT

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.

    Booooo!Why did geoff had to destroy something so grand (which he created)? The mentor/teens team was great, too bad superboy and kid flash are either dead or depowered, but Kid Devil as a Titan? What's he thinking? And Robin leading? This group seems quite awkward... *by the way, i've cancelled my TT subscription.*

    Um, are you one of the people who are always complaning on the DC boards that the Titans should be Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg and Beast Boy? And who are always making fun of Kid Devil and Ravager (Who, IMHO, are really cool.)? And I'm just starting getting TT all the time!
