From Tales of the Teen Titans #53 (May 1985)

Doubles tennis.

Say what you like about Terry, he’s playing alongside an Amazon, and against one of the world’s foremost physical specimens AND a graduate of the Warlords of Okaara…. and he’s still giving it his all.

I still have no idea how Donna and Terry won this match. I mean, on the barest level, the teams are even - one superpowered woman and one human man on each side. But even though Kory and Donna have similar superpowers and warrior training, it’s established that Kory usually beats Donna when they spar:

And Dick and Terry are both non-powered humans, but Dick’s been a professional athlete his entire life and has been trained by Batman since he was eight or ten years old. And Terry is… a college professor.

So, with all the respect in the world… how exactly did Terry and Donna manage to win this thing, again?

In my opinion, other than George Perez (top left), the only other artists who can really get the NTT-era Titans right are Eduardo Barreto (top right) and Phil Jimenez (bottom).

Trolling Tim since ‘01

Can I just say how much Ive really missed that first Tim? Like - he accepted the possibility that they wouldn’t want him back, and he was going to respect that. He knew he wasn’t perfect, he knew they could handle themselves.

And the sad part is, he thought maybe their friendship relied on him being a good leader; maybe it wasn’t strong enough to survive him not being as perfect as he strived, so desperately, to be.

And he’s elated when this isn’t the case. Not because it proves something, not because Robin deserves a team. Because his friends want him with them. They appreciate and adore him with all of his flaws. They know he makes mistakes, they know he’s just a kid, they know he’s not great with people, and that’s okay.

Awesome commentary! I think the thing about Tim that’s simultaneously very sweet but also very sad when you stop and think about it is that having people who like him (much less love him) is never something he takes for granted - he’s always just that tiny bit taken aback by it. And he works so overtime to be good enough because, I think, a part of him feels like having people love him is dependent on him “deserving” it.

Which, y’know, makes sense when you think of his family life. (One of the reasons I think his New52 retconned backstory re: his parents destroys a lot of what made Tim who he was.) Tim never felt like he could take his parents paying attention to him, much less being affectionate towards him, for granted, and I think that led to this mentality in general where even once he knows that someone loves him, he doesn’t quite trust that it’s a permanent thing. I think somewhere in the back of his mind, there’s always this fear that if he’s not good enough, he might lose that love.

kelleycarries:

…So then why night after night, did I dream of other lives? Little fragments of impossible histories in another world and time? In them, I stood alongside other Titans, born of mortal flesh and blood. We were brave and powerful and our exploits rivalled those of our divine namesakes. I loved them. I grew up with them. They made me whole. They were my family. That world knew us as Cyborg, Nightwing, Starfire, Raven, Jericho, Changeling, Arsenal - but I knew them as Victor and Dick, Koriand’r, Joey, Garfield and…Roy. They called me Wonder Girl - but I remembered with an almost blinding clarity calling myself by another name. A mortal name.
Donna Troy.

There is nothing about this I don’t love.

So, basically every time Dick refers to his friends as his “safety net”, I pretty much start sobbing.

Interesting note: Both of these scenes are from 1999, were written by Devin Grayson let it never be said I never give Devin Grayson credit where credit is due, and drawn by Phil Jimenez. The first is from Nightwing: Secret Files and Origins (which was actually chronologically published later), and the second is from JLA/Titans: The Technis Imperative.

Also, if you haven’t figured it out yet, yes, that top panel is pretty much my favorite comic panel of all time.

“For some reason he’s not pursuing my connection with Bruce.”

Kory, are you wearing what I think you’re wearing, because that would be adorable.

#Joey your socks are cute #and Dick #Dick honey #you look like a preppy douche #reign that in
Excuse you, Dick looks fabulous. I like my boys kinda preppy.
However, the real crime here is that the first half of this scene is missing, where Raven tells her mom that the government is investigating her because her past as “concubine to a planet-conquering demon triggered a few alarms” and Arella is just like “*sigh* And they’ve never made any mistakes?”, because that scene is hilarious and awesome and basically single-handedly made me fall in love with Arella as a character.
… Also, for the record, Donna has a boyfriend-fanclub shirt too:

Kory’s is better, though.

Why does DC hate beautiful and perfect friendships :(

You know what I love about this?
So often with team books like this, or any situation where the writer wants to create a strong relationship, you see these relationships more or less emerging out of nowhere. They’ve known each other for two issues, and all of a sudden you’ll get these really extreme statements, like “YOU ARE THE ONLY PERSON WHO’S EVER BEEN THERE FOR ME” or “THIS TEAM IS THE ONLY FAMILY I’VE EVER HAD”, and it always rings pretty false, because we haven’t seen that relationship develop, and more often than not these extreme statements are just contradicting previous history.
What I love about this team is that it’s so sweet and touching, but it’s understated. It makes sense for where the team is at this point. Some of these teammates know each other from before, of course (Dick, Donna, Wally), but as a whole they’re still getting to know each other, like Dick says here. And there’s a bond that’s starting to form, but it’s not as strong as it’s going to be someday.
Eventually, you see the Titans get to the point where they refer to the team as their family, and at that point, it has weight - because we’ve truly seen them loving each other and supporting each other as a family. We’ve seen those relationships develop.
But here, we’re not at that point yet. Relationships don’t start with “You guys are like family to me”, out of nowhere. Relationships don’t start with “I love you”.
Relationships start with “I really like all of you so much. As friends.”

*squeals with excitement* Thank you so much for drawing this for me!! And thank you as well for making the drawings rebloggable, like I requested. :-)
This is absolutely adorable! I love how Dick is just nonchalantly reading while Donna has him up in the air like that, haha. And yay for Donna being a strong and powerful Amazon in every sense of the word!
This is wonderful! <3

deconstructingjasontodd:

Some of you guys will have probably seen the first part of this page around, I just think the whole page is pretty cute. Donna’s life is pretty much upside down right now, so it makes sense she would default to listening to ‘Robin’s advice even though she’s supposed to be the leader.

FROM: New Teen Titans V2 20

It would be in pretty bad taste if it was written after 9/11, though.

It’s definitely creepy, though. There’ve actually been a bunch of creepy coincidences like this over the years in comics.
