The Teen Titans are an organization of young vigilantes banded together to fight crime, help teenagers and answer calls. Beginning as a group of side-kicks looking to distinguish themselves from their mentors, they would go on to expand into a world-wide establishment.


Background Information

On the paralle universe of Earth-One, five young hero sidekicks (Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Speedy, and Wonder Girl) converge on Metropolis to seek the aid of Superman when their adult counterparts suddenly turn to crime. Unable to gain his aid, the young heroes succsfully stop Wonder Woman and capture Aquaman, Batman and Green Arrow. In the Secret Sanctuary (the JLA headquarters before the JLA Satellite was built), they discover that an alien energy-being, the Antithesis has warped the super-heroes in order to feed on the energies released by their criminal actions. He would however, fade away into nothingness when the last of his Justice League pawns is beaten. Inspired by the success of their teamwork, the five young heroes form a permanent organization, the Teen Titans, with Speedy as a part-time-only member.[1]

Headquarters

The Titans Lair was located outside of Gotham City, in a cave that used to serve as an underground records storage facility for Wayne Enterprises. Bruce Wayne allowed them access to the empty silo during the time when Robin helped to form the original Teen Titans.

Gabriel's Horn was a small disco club located in the neighborhood of Farmingdale in Long Island, and later. It was owned and operated by Malcolm Duncan and briefly served as a de facto headquarters for Mal's super-hero colleagues the Teen Titans. In later years, Gabriel's Horn expanded into a restaurant and included jazz-fusion entertainment. Mal would often entertain his guests by playing his horn during meals. He also opened a club in San Francisco.

Notes

  • The first incarnation of the team unofficially debuted in The Brave and the Bold vol.1, #54[3] (July 1964) as a "junior Justice League" featuring Robin (Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Wally West), and Aqualad, the sidekicks of Leaguers Batman, the Flash, and Aquaman, respectively.
  • The group then made its first official appearance under the name "Teen Titans" in The Brave and the Bold vol.1, #60[4], joined by Wonder Girl (Donna Troy), the younger sister of Wonder Woman. Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy (Roy Harper) later took Aqualad's place in the lineup.
  • After being featured in Showcase, Vol. 1 #59 (December 1965), the Teen Titans were spun off into their own series with Teen Titans, Vol. 1 #1 (February, 1966) by Haney and artist Nick Cardy. The series was canceled with #43 (January–February 1973).
  • The series resumed with issue #44 (November 1976). The stories included the introduction of the African-American superheroine Bumblebee, the introduction of the "Titans West" team, consisting of a number of other teen heroes including Bat-Girl (Betty Kane) and Golden Eagle and the introduction of Joker's Daughter in #48. The revival was short-lived and the series was canceled as of #53 (February 1978). At the end, they realized that, now in their early 20s, they had outgrown the "Teen" Titans. In the last panel, without speaking, they go their separate ways.
