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!

    yay! thanks a lot! (by the way, if Superboy could age normally in 1999's Sins of Youth, then he'd be 17/18 when he died.) Also, I think Robin was a victim of DC's age slider thing, since he was portrayed like 14-15 in many Batman, Nightwing and Robin comics. Also, he didn't look 16 during the Death of Donna Troy or Tom Grummet's interpretation of Robin in Teen Titans.

    Look at my evidence again.. Robin celebrated his 16th birthday when TTv3 was launched. He's 17 now, for sure.

    Superboy was frozen at 16 for a loooong time. He was possibly 17 at the time that he died. I think of it as 'almost 17'.

    I hate to age these characters two quickly; As it is, even DC ages them too quickly. Cassie has aged 3 years since 1995! Yikes! The Young Justice Kids are waaaaay too close to adulthood now. And Bart Allen has lost all of his youthful charm.

    Wow! I'm quite impressed. I hope that some of the DC higher-ups use this as a referrence sheet for future projects.
    Great Job!

    Thanks, anonymous! I had a looong conversation with Phil Jimenez once about the Titans ages. We were pretty much in agreement! :)

    Wow thats really cool!
    So technically is Raven mentally 25? And its only her body that 17?

    That's a "no" on Raven. Her emotions and hormones are 17 years old. Her body is 17 year's old. She - and everyone - remembers everything that happened with the "New Teen Titans Raven." But the current Raven does not have the sensibilities of a 24 year old woman.

    You guys- why is everyone giving up already? WE can't give up- Did Robin give up when it was the end of the world?! And yes I know, I sound like a little child, but the thing is, this is one of the best shows' I've ever seen, besides buffy and Danny Phantom, I LOVE IT, so I'm not going to let it go away. If you give up then yeah it is going to go away, but if we fight for it, it'll contenuie on!
