writer Chris Hutchins' life is basically "Groovy Ghoulies" meets Atari
Force meets "Sailor Moon. "
Don't call the Titans a bunch of second-stringers...at least not while
writer Devin Grayson is around. She's spent months reading aback
issues to make sure her upcoming Titans series, launching in January, is
loyal to the characters and keeps readers happy.
"Dick Grayson knows
leading a team is time-consuming and stressful. But his conflict
is he's a deeply responsible person; its really hard to let this stuff
happen without in some way checking in or watching over the people involved.
When the team starts up, he has some serious questions about whether its
a good idea to start the Titans up again."
"Donna (first as Wonder Girl, then Troia) used to be the den mother, but we're not going ot see a lot of that. She's been through a really difficult time lately. Basically, she's been told that she was (wiped from existence in Wonder Woman #134-#136), but then was restored through the memories of Wally (West, a.k.a Flash). When we start, she's going to be examining those issues. But she will have her Amazonian powers back...and some new ones."
"Dick's busy, but Wally West's even busier. Not only doe she have his own city to protect--if not the world--he's a member of the JLA and the Titans. He joins the Titans out of friendship. IN a sense he makes a sacrifice, but he does it gracefully. There's no resentment there. But when the Titans start scheduling meetings at the same time the JLA does, that'll tick him off a little."
"On some levels, Roy Harper would just be happy continuing to be his own man without the Titans. But he finds the dynamics pretty irresistible -- not to mention the free rent (in their new HQ on Titans Island). Since he's raising his baby daughter full-time, he knows you can't really get a better group of baby sitters than the Titans. He's a man who just kind of goes where his path takes him."
Garth) is a man with something to prove. He's another one of the
members who'd just as soon do his own thing, but he's gaining a sense of
confidence, although he may be the quietest one on the team. He becomes
the Titans' treasurer. That's a new position for him, and he'll find
he has more of a voice than he ever had before."
