Tough call, but probably Changeling. Wally would be second, but I didn't really come to love him until he was The Flash.

Yeah, that was some weird Mary Sue action on Wolfman's part.

I think Raven just because of how over-the-top melodramatic she is (that is exactly what you want when you're a teenager and your most trivial of problems feel like THE END OF THE WORLD).

I will admit that the animated version is better, though.

But they're all great characters.

LOL, I hadn't thought of it that way, but that's so true.

I also liked how she was pretty much the DC version of Dark Phoenix.

You know, it's interesting. Those were the days where being a fan of DC Comics meant so much more. But for the question: Like many others who feel this way, Robin/Nightwing was good to read in that series.

I didn't like Wolfman's usage of Kid Flash that much. Love Wally West as a character, didn't like Wolfman's usage.

I did like Starfire and Cyborg much more. Good characters, totally able to stand the test of time.

To this day, I don't get Raven. I didn't get that character 34 years ago. I don't get her now. I doubt I'll get her tomorrow. Her origin isn't that complex, but man, I just don't get how the hell I was supposed to give a damn about a character whose basic deal was "I can't let anyone feel what I'm feeling, otherwise I might kill all of you with my vaguely explained powers of empathy."

Never have liked Changeling/Beast Boy. That's just me, though. Just not a fan of the character.

I have no clue WTF Wolfman was doing with Terry Long. Donna Troy being linked to that clown...look. I was fine with the characters clearly growing up, advancing in their lives. So yeah, she could get married. But at the same time, having a significant other dragged Troy down quite a bit over the course of the series.

1.) Dick Grayson - Not even a competition. Dick Grayson wins this by a landslide.
2.) Wally West
3.) Starfire
4.) Changeling
5.) Cyborg
6.) Raven
7.) Donna Troy
8.) Jericho

it's interesting to note that because Johns has a man crush on Cyborg this awesome era, this epic group of heros, just don't fit into the rebooted DCU
Cyborg and Garfield not chums? that's not cool

Deathstroke. All the f***ing way.

The thread title says "who was your fave titan" but it's also said in first post;
I just figured I'd see who everyone's favourite character was back then. Also has that changed in retrospect?

... fave character: Deathstroke.

Changed in retro...? Are you... are you crazy? XD :lol:
Ah, no, hasn't changed. Slade. The father I never had. I'll read/watch anything he's in, no matter how god-awful. I'll bitch about it, cuz we need to bitch when they f***-up, but Slade is Slade, man.

I love that he was supposed to be the bad guy but ended up being the kind of honest man he was (for a while anyway) and they had a problem with him having "too much presence," so they had to limit his actual appearances. They had a similar problem in the cartoon show in 2003.
His spinoff comic didn't have quite the same entertainment as when he was playing with the titans all the time, but it was great to see more of him anyway, and it was still a damn good run.

... it's a good thing I noticed that I was rambling and stopped myself. :lol:

(I also didn't think much of Donna, but I still liked her :P )

I say "Once a Titan, always a Titan"! Roy Harper for the win! :-D

Seriously though, my fave W/P Titan is Dick Grayson.

It's hard for it not to be Dick.
He had the most growth.

I like Deathstroke but I'm sometime a little shocked more New Teen Titans villains didn't become bigger deals.

They had a pretty underrated cast of villains. I get why someone like Trigon could be hard to use(he almost requires having Raven around) but the Hive, The Fearsome Five, and Brother Blood were all solid.

Ok Brother Blood needed a costume tweak because well George Perez always seems to over design characters. Still he had a cool backround and story.

I've never liked Brother Blood, but otherwise, I agree with you, JB. During that era, the New Teen Titans and the Outsiders had far more interesting villains than the JLA did.
