Rumor: New Titans Coming?

Lying In The Gutters has covered rumours and gossip in the comics industry for thirteen long glorious and quite scary years. Here's the latest:

TITANIC SPLIT: Look for "Teen Titans" to split into two, possibly multi-dimensional, books. One with most of the current series regulars called "Teen Titans," and a new book, "New Titans," modelled on the eighties group.

    i'm curious about 'new titans,' maybe it's a reuntion team of cyborg, raven, etc..

    I think that would be GREAT!

    New Titans was the best line-up but was off to a very poor start with both writing and art, then as things started to get better the book was taken over by external characters and the Titans became supporting cast. Johns turned the Young Justice core group into a great book with Teen Titans, now if only somebody would do that with the real (original) Titans!

    I will not get my hopes up though.

    I agree. If there will be two teams of Titans after the East/West storyline, then it makes sense to launch another book. Let's just hope for two things:
    1) A good writer/artist team.
    2) Team members who haven't been members for a long time to become part of the team.

    Hopefully good writing and art will keep this New Titans alive for along time.
    Here is my hope for New Titans(TTitans East) Model after the same team in the Titans of Tomorrow arc.
    1. Cyborg
    2. Batgirl
    3. Captain Marvel JR.
    4. New Terra
    5. BumbleBee
    6. Firestorm
    7. Raven
    Now thats pretty good balance team.

    I hope "New Titans" will be composed by :
    -Changeling (Beast Boy)
    -Captain Marvel Jr.
    -Red Star
    -Aqualad (Tempest)

    Considering the involvement of some of the original members in other areas of the DC universe, it's an open guess as to who could be a member of the new team. However, I would like to see the following members on the team:
    Red Star
    and maybe Hawk and Dove. Dawn Granger is a good character that I think that they need to find a home for!

    And don't forget Jericho! Now that he's back, they HAVE to make him a permanent team!!!

    The eighties Titans might would come back!? Oh, that would be so wonderful.

    (To those curiuos, the seven *main* characters that I consider important from the eighties are Nightwing, Wonder Girl, Jericho, Starfire, Changeling, Cyborg and Raven- those seven lasts the longest (or longer) out of all the characters to show up in the time period.)

    To be frank, I'm happy with the idea of the spilt-up; I'm very unhappy with the current Titans; NO character development, fights every issues, unrealistic drama (I'm a teenager myself, teenagers doesn't behave like that).

    But I'll just hang back and wait.

    I'd like to see something like New Titans again as well, certainly if it meant that Nightwing would get a better writer than Judd Winick is on Outsiders.

    Speaking of which, I'm disappointed to have heard that the new series DC is said to be making of Infinity Inc. is going to be a team that's got nothing to do with the old one that starred Jenny-Lynn Hayden, Al Rothstein and Hector Hall, but rather this thing that features a bunch of second-rate characters. That's not what I was interested in.

    As for Titans again, if they regroup the original Titans, they could also add in Flamebird, who could make a wonderful addition to the team. And it'd probably be a lot better than the mess Johns turned the current series into. Maybe they should change it back to Young Justice again, and rehire Peter David as the writer!

    I really hope that this happens! It would be even better if Marv and George were on it. Then it'd be awesome!

    if this is modelle don the 80's team then it has to be:
    Red Star
    Deula Dent (if they dont kill her off)
    and wotever new Terra pops up
    but i agree with annonymous that the newest Hawk and Dove would be good

    I also think it would be a good idea to split up the team from old titans to new titans. And has eney body thought about superboy coming back??? he was an AMAZING charicter. He was a new generation superman for all of us echno boomers in our genneration. Things were just getting heated up with wondergirl & him!!! They brought back superman, and i just hope the make the same right desition with conner.

    heres my list.
    red arrow
    beast boy

    wonder girl
    super boy
    miss martian
    kid devil
