I'm officially worried..... I would have loved to give this series a chance, but it's Judd Winnick. As good-looking as Powerboy is, I don't read Supergirl. Can anyone here confirm his coolness?

LOL! I think Supergirl readers are the last people who would testify to his coolness. He was written as an abusive, stalker psycho there apparently.

Powerboy is from Apokolips, correct? Why the hell does he like Supergirl? Was she able to beat him up?

So this obviously isn't the official lineup.

I've thought it over and I'll give it a shot. I mean, I can commit to a one-shot. Give them a shot... Art looks pretty cool, too.

I'm kinda torn on Judd though.

Thus, I give it a go.

I was hoping for some of the previous "Titans East" to become anti-heroes though. Like Risk, Sunfire.... BATGIRL.... Oh well. We'll see.

looks like after the mini's that are supposedly going to be coming out and after teen titans year one...


Looks like after 30 years of reading this title consistently... I'm done until I find characters on a team aside from just one that I find interesting enough to spend my money on.....



and I dont even care about the writer.... its the f-in roster....... hopefully after the one shot, there will be more characters to pull me and more titan fans toward this franchise again


nice job dc

I totally going to grab this now. I like Winick.

also-

NRAMA: Can you say anything about the line-up of the team in the special or the new series?

Winick: Nah, it's part of the fun that we're keeping the line-up to ourselves. Chapter one is about the team coming together, and in the first issue you'll see what the final line-up will be.


So this obviously isn't the official lineup.

I bet the majority will end up on the team, they couldve just done a JLA teaser and show 20 teen heroes who possibly could make the team. There may be one or two minor changes but this is most likely the team we will be getting.

Skipped to the end of this, so I don't know if anyone else said it-

Girl in Purple is probably Magenta, who first appeared in New Teen Titans and who keeps going from Hero to Villain to Hero.

Maybe, or maybe only on or two of that roster will stay and be backed up by a bunch of bigger named Titans later on. We've yet to be told what's happening with Nightwing when he leaves Outsiders, or Donna and Kory when they're done with the respecive specials they are in.

Yes! Powerboy! It'll probably only take a few issues for the rest of the team to realize he's psycho, but in the meantime he'll be good for plenty of laughs... ^_^

Winnick's writing has never impressed me much, especially on his last team book; Outsiders, where instead of sexy we got sex, which is inherently less interesting to read about.

His characterisations were "off" to say the least, his Nightwing was appalling, his Katana a waste of a rich character and if he ever got around to giving Grace a personality I must have missed it.

This does not make me interested the title, alas.

I haven't read much Winick stuff, but what I have read hasn't impressed me. Now, if they said John Arcudi was writing this, I'd be more willing to give it a chance.

The Girl in the purple outfit could be Amethyst, princess of Gem World!

I'll post this one thing in both this and the Winnick thread: I actualyl don;'t mind. If anything,as a fan of both Green Arrow and his first few Outsiders arcs(I liked it up until they killed Indy. I gave up on it after that),this news actually has me MORE interested. I still have severe reservations about the lineup though.

I've actually seen another cover with a blonde in a purple outfit.

But I doubt they're bringing Amethyst back to be in a team. She's tied into the existance of the Gemworld - and didn't have powers outside of the Gemworld.
