I'd have loved the new52 version to have been re-booted as; Beast Boy, Wonder-Girl (Donna Troy), Kid-Flash (Wally West), Raven (New Teen Titans version), Aqua-Lad (Young Justice cartoon version), Starfire (for Dick's love interest) and Nightwing. After a short stint Nightwing hands over reins to Robin (Tim Drake) who could become Red Robin (or whatever). Star fire could leave team after Dick does and a new girl member joins after. (Maybe Rose Wilson to pay homage to Deathstroke/Titan days.)
A rebooted Jericho would be cool too!

It'd prefer that they go with a completely new team instead of trying to recapture the NTT glory days yet again. That's never worked before. Look towards the future instead of trying to relive the past.
I think the times it really faltered is when the number of the classic (or legacy) characters was lower than the number of new characters.
That said, I would also use the New Teen Titans series and Young Justice cartoon as a starting point. Pick about four or five characters from those then add in two or three new ones.
An interesting thing to remember also, is that the original New Teen Titans run by Wolfman played out more like an expanded Fantastic Four. Aside from swapping Kid Flash for Jericho, there were barely any team changes. New members were usually temporary (Kole and Terra). It wasn't until Danny Chase (the first new permanent member) came along that the title began to lose its steam.
Just like the Justice League, the New Teen Titans founding members have become something of a legendary team. Sure, you can replace one or two (like Martian Manhunter/Cyborg) but more that half and it loses its identity. The teams can gain new members but they have to grow into it naturally, I think, to where when someone thinks of the Titans the characters automatically spring to mind.
The pool of characters I would choose from would be:
Wonder Girl (whoever is going by the name)
Aqualad (the Young Justice version)
I would pick about five of those and add a couple new characters. Once the new characters gain familiarity with readers, I would slowly replace a few more legacy members with new characters. But I would also bring in a few legacy members to keep the title feeling like a Titans book.
We have to remember that the "heart" of Teen Titans is being a Junior Justice League. It originally formed with sidekicks and really that's where the initial characters need to come from. You can add or subtract from that later.
How old would Nightwing, Donna, and Wally be?
I feel that Tim and Damien shouldn't even be around yet since it's supposed to be a reboot. I would've really liked an original five like I keep talking about because those are supposed to be the legacy characters that create the junior Justice League.
I really like the New Teen Titans team but i wouldn't want those characters right away in a rebooted team.
Really liking the Kerschl covers for the Futures' End issue.
Hey, Cassie looks like an actual teenage girl instead of a runway model. Well done Kerschl, well done indeed.
No more N.O.W.H.E.R.E please
Now that would be an amazing Titans line-up!! All of them are individual non JL affiliated characters (besides Robin/Nightwing) and that's how it should be. Young Justice should be the one with the legacy characters (Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl, Superboy, Red Arrow, Aqualad, Ms. Martian, Aquagirl...etc)
We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!
This is the best Tim drake that has been drawn in like forever, that is how you draw a teen or pre teen team.
-Mutation is a bitch
-Don't mess with the "S"
-kon was never supermans son,he was always humans trying to recreate the Earth's greatest hero.
-So much happier now that I don't visit Bleeding Cool
-what do you give a half kryptonian clone to be super,TACTILE TELEKINESIS of course
I'm not sure if there is already a thread for the TT but, I haven't seen it yet so I'm making this one.
The Titans need some appreciation for the dark times they are currently going through right now.
Post here for everything Titans.
