Ever since Widget and I binge-watched the Teen Titans cartoon a few years ago (the original one, not TTG), she’s been occasionally shocked to find out what her favorite teenage supers are like in the comics.  Raven?  Completely different and nearly as funny.  Pantha?  Dead.  Jericho?  Dead.  Starfire?  Disturbingly pneumatic.  Of course, her favorites notwithstanding, the question of who is the Top Titan isn’t one you can easily answer, what with the dozens and dozens of (admittedly mostly dead) former members, the cartoon adaptation, the live-action version and tons of former members floating about, which leads us to today’s BOOYAH! query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will never stop arguing that Kid Flash’s original costume is the perfect super-suit, but would probably still pick Wolfman/Perez-era Starfire, asking: Which Teen Titan (of any era or medium) is truly the Top Titan of them all?


About Author

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.
