Brightest Day: Titans
DC Universe: The Source blog has posted some information on TITANS:
Huh. Sounds like a Villain-for-hire team. I had hoped that the recent BLACKEST NIGHT arc was moving Deathstroke toward some "road to redemption." I much prefer the "code of ethics" anti-hero Slade, to the current uber-villain Slade. I dunno. I'm fairly underwhelmed by this....
AS: One of the titles that a lot of people have been asking about of late is TITANS. I know that we have a new creative team hitting soon. What can you tell us about that?
DD: TITANS is another series that will fall directly under BRIGHTEST DAY, with Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino coming on board, starting with the TITANS: VILLAINS FOR HIRE SPECIAL and then the regular series. We loved the work the two of them did on INK, so we’re excited to see them build a new team of Titans, under the leadership of none other than Deathstroke, the Terminator.
Who the members are and how they affect the original Titans is a major part of the DCU’s story for 2010.
AS: Come on, Dan. You woke me up at 6 a.m. for this. Can you drop a few clues as to the roster?
DD: Don’t see why not. Seeing as how the creative team is coming off a great mini-series like INK, it’s not a surprise that the Tattooed Man will be a member of Deathstroke’s Titans team.
AS: One more?
DD: Well, it wouldn’t be much of a Deathstroke team if there wasn’t a femme fatale in the mix, and we’ve definitely got one – with ties to the original Titans, to boot – in Cheshire. We’ll save the full roster for a later date.
AS: Fair enough. Readers, I’m starving, so I’m going to grab a quick lunch, but come back to The Source in about an hour for another bit of BRIGHTEST DAY news.
Also, a little weird this is going under the BRIGHTEST DAY banner..... turning the Titans team into villains for hire?
