In retrospect, it was Terra’s demise that lit the fuse.  Once she died tragically at her own hand, the gloves were off and dramatic Teen Titan deaths became the norm.  Add in the built-in angst at the deaths of teens/young adults, and it became that norm that becoming a Teen Titan meant a 60/40 chance of becoming a dead Teen Titan.  Kole, Danny Chase, Pantha, Conner Kent, both Doves, Kid Devil, even founding members Wonder Girl and Aqualad have bitten the metaphorical dust, not to mention all the maimings, the character assassination of Hawk and whatever that was with Kid Eternity.  The heroic life is rough on a Titan, leading to today’s junior sidekick query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
