Lobdell announced plans for a second Teen Titans series at Las Vegas Comic Con this weekend.
MorrisonCon wasn't the only convention taking place in Las Vegas this weekend. Las Vegas Comic Expo hosted a "New 52" panel in which Scott Lobdell, Kyle Higgins, Josh Fialkov, Brian Buccellato and J.T. Krul all made appearances.
While the panel was a bit light on news, Lobdell did reveal that there were currently plans for him to write a second Teen Titans series after Issue #25 next fall. According to Lobdell, the team will be lead by Raven, who is making her DCnU debut in Phantom Stranger this month. However, after other panelists expressed disbelief about Lobdell having a spinoff planned that far in advance, Lobdell did admit that the series might fall apart before it started.
In other Teen Titans news, Lobdell stated that "legal issues" prevented Static Shock from joining the team and expressed displeasure in the Culling crossover event, noting that it forced him to rush several of his plotlines. Kyle Higgins also expressed some mild displeasure about how he had to rush a reveal in Nightwing due to the "Night of the Owls" crossover.
Buccellato confirmed that there were no plans to bring Wally West back currently, but that a "David West" had made an appearance in Flash #0. Also, Buccellato hinted that some iteration of Professor Zoom would be appearing in Flash soon.
The panelists also mentioned several pitches that never made it into fruition, including a Flash/I, Vampire crossover, a Blue Beetle/I, Vampire crossover, and a sci-fi take on Supergirl similar to that Captain Atom.
