McKeever and Wolfman Tackle Titan-ic Crossover

Following the events of "Teen Titans Annual 2009," on sale April 1, writers Sean McKeever and Marv Wolfman team-up with artists Fernando Dagnino and Raul Fernandez to tell a five-part crossover in the pages of "Teen Titans," "Titans" and "Vigilante." The story is part of DC Comics’ Faces of Evil campaign, whereby whereby the villains of the DC Universe take center stage in a series of one-shots and special issues of existing series.

In the story called “Deathtrap,” the featured Face of Evil is none other than Jericho, a former Titan and the son of classic Titans supervillain, Deathstroke the Terminator, whose plan of attack is to eliminate both teams of Titans in one fell swoop.

Marv, what does Vigilante – the resident lone wolf – offer to the Titans teams, both young and old, as an ally? Can the two teams learn from someone who predominantly works alone?

MW: Vigilante and the Titans are after some of the same things and therefore cross paths, but they aren’t working together in the traditional sense. They are not friends and frankly, the Titans would just as soon arrest him and he’s just as willing to screw them over. This is not a case of the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

They are two entities who are using their own methods to get to the root of what’s going on with Jericho and the New York mobs, and therefore find themselves crossing paths all too often. Vig doesn’t mind screwing the Titans over to get what he wants, and if anyone of them gets in his way he doesn’t mind shooting them. On the other hand, the Titans won’t let him get in their way.

How does Deathstroke’s daughter, Ravager, play into all of this?

SM: She’s a wild card. She has her own agenda, and whether or not that lines up with what the other heroes want will determine if she’s friend or foe. Of course, with Jericho being her brother, it really makes you wonder if she’ll be out to protect him at all costs or kill him. After all, that Wilson family is pretty messed up.

Read the whole thing here!

I have hope for this crossover, with Marv and Sean at the helm. Maybe they can make sense of Jericho's "new status."

    I would like to see Ravager take Jericho in with other misfit Titans and creat a new Team Titans: Suicide Squad version. With supervision from Deathstroke ofcourse. Hard edge heroes that walk between the line of good and evil.
