The series revolves around a team of crime-fighting teenaged superheroes — Robin , the team's fearless leader; Starfire , an alien princess from Tamaran; Cyborg , the teams tech-wizard who is half human and half robot; Raven , a telepathic sorceress from Azarath; and Beast Boy , a shapeshifter who can transform into any and all types of animals. The show focuses on the Titans adventures in protecting the city. The first season also features an overarching storyline focused on the Titans' main villain Slade , a mysterious mastermind who takes an interest in Robin.
Teen Titans go is cute, but nothing compared to the original
Teen Titans was what superhero shows should be.
The nearly two-minute preview wastes no time establishing that this will not be the Teen Titans you know, via a dark look, an ominous tone, and a depiction of Robin as a sword-wielding, baddie-slaying, bone-splitting badass. And as for his mentor, Batman? Throw in some F-bombs. Slit some throats.
The original Teen Titans comic wasn't even targeted at teenagers. Photo: DC Comics. The movie is based on a cartoon, Teen Titans Go! Even more confusing, multiple TV properties have been based on the Titans, all with a different premise. That was when editor George Kashdan had the bright idea to team up the sidekicks of several DC Comics superheroes. Evidently it sold well enough for a sequel six issues later — one in which the trio gained a formal name, Teen Titans, and a new member, Wonder Girl.
