Titans Shake-Up: New Characters, New Roster, New Standing From Abnett And Peterson

by Oliver MacNamee

The news is out via CBR that, rather than finish up the current Dan Abnett and Brett Booth Titans comic, DC have wisely chosen to continue the book, but with an all new line up and an all new status too.

Springing from the upcoming Justice League: No Justice mini-series, Nightwing will be choosing a spanking new line-up of characters with some familiar faces. Including Raven and Beast Boy (currently in Teen Titans), Dick will also be bringing in friend and ally, Donna Troy,  as well as Steel (Natasha Irons, John Henry’s niece) and Miss Martian, who we haven’t seen in a good while, as well as a mystery meta too (who is included on the cover above). Oh, and sharing leadership will be badass Amanda Waller, as these Titans take up a very different position on the global stage as a result of No Justice.

I was sold on this premise alone, but to see Brandon Peterson on art chores was a cherry on the cake for me. What a winning team, methinks.

Here’s your official solicit for issue #23:

Can anything stop the Metagene pandemic unleashed through the events of JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE? The all-new Titans are on the case. Roll call: Nightwing, Donna Troy, Raven, Steel, Beast Boy and Miss Martian! But can even their combined might stand against new super-powered weapons of mass destruction birthed by the Metagenes? And (SPOILERS) how will the events of TEEN TITANS #20 come back to haunt the Titans? New enemies are out for blood in part one of “The Spark.”

Titans #23 will be on sale 07.18.18.
