Titans News from Wizard World Texas


Our secret informant brings Titans news from Wizard World Texas!

>> Risk will be getting "arms" and his story will be told in a Geoff Johns written title. "But we were originally going to call him the one armed bandit," Didio quipped.

>> The Titans ongoing series will be reminiscent of the NBC hit series, Friends. Red Arrow would gripe to his buddies about his JLA missions, for example.

>> Titans (the ongoing series by Winick & Churchill) is delayed until April due to Churchill suffering a shoulder injury.

>> A fan asked if Donna Troy would be going by the same codename in Titans. Didio didn't even know her codename is Troia. He said that Donna is like the "Jean Grey" of DC, and more fans seem to know her as "Donna Troy" - and that's what everyone refers to her as.

>> Red Arrow will remain on the JLA while in the Titans.

>> Superman Prime will be an ongoing villain in the DCU.


>> Bart Allen's story isn't finished.

Newsarama's Web Report brings more news:

"
A number of fans expressed concern at how harshly Risk has been treated both in Infinite Crisis (where one arm was ripped off by Superboy-Prime) and in Tales of the Sinestro Corps: Superman-Prime (Where the Superboy-Prime all grown up tears off the other arm). While Risk’s arms may have been tossed away, the character has not. Didio said that his story isn’t over."

"Mark Waid will remain on Flash for at least six more issues."

"Don’t get too sentimental about his recent death. Bart Allen’s story is not over, according to Didio. And maybe we shouldn’t be overly bummed about Conner Kent. When asked if there were plans for Kon-El, the answer provided was a coy “Maybe.”"

Comics Continuum Report brings a few more tidbits:

>>
Using Bart Allen's death an an example, DiDio was asked about deaths in comics losing their impact, DiDio said, "If we tell a story that doesn't make you care, we haven't done our jobs. DiDio said that Bart Allen's story isn't done. "I'll hold off on that conversation until that story is told," he said.

>>
April is the launch date for the Titans series. "We called it Titans Friends originally," DiDio said, noting it will have a different tone, spotlighting the close-knit of being a super-hero.

In Saturday's DCU Panel, Comics Contimuum Reports:

>>
Trying to clafify if Bart Allen was coming back, DiDio said, "Not true. Maybe!

>>
Benitez said he just finished with Justice League of America #16 before joining the Titans series.

>>
Eddy Barrows is the regular artist of Teen Titans, beginning with #56.

>>
Talia will be playing a role in an upcoming Nightwing story.

    There's a delay in the new Titans book. There was wholesale slaughter in the lead-in to it (but I'm sure Dan DiDio had nothing to do with that). Great start, guys.

    Thing's are looking up! I'm hoping Bart won't be Kid-Flash when he returns. That'd be kinda a step down. He should take up the Impulse mantle again! I mean, that was HIS name. Not to mention I really don't think that the Bart that died recently was OUR Bart anyways.
