90 percent of Titans continuity wiped out

As expected, there is no good news about the Teen Titans, as the report from the NYCC panel tells that much of the previous Titans continuity was erased, and not only that, it's clearer than ever that Wally West has been obscured:
One fan asked if Tim Drake was still an orphan, Chase said she wouldn’t answer, but said he was still part of the Bat-family, something that would be reflected upon soon. When asked about Wally West, Chase responded, “who?”
Not only is it clear that the next generation Flash is being tossed under the bus, it's almost a foregone conclusion that Jack Drake, Tim's father, is still on the sacrifice list. I certainly don't see any reason to waste time on this rebooted rendition. On the other hand, I wonder if there is a possibility that Teen Titans: Games might do far better than what they have planned for their current output, since that's set in what many could consider a better continuity and time, circa 1988, and written by a far better writer (Marv Wolfman) than the current bunch of hacks.

Hey Avi, I'm so glad to see someone blogging on this. Wiping out Titans continuity is nearly unbelievable. I'm amazed the Titans fanbase is being so passive and complacent about it. Maybe it's because they want to hope for something better around the corner, a correction. Maybe they're so demoralized as a fanbase that they just don't know what to do. But when they do say something disagreeing with something as outrageous as this, it's so often in polite apologetic tones. DC by contrast has no problem berating fans who disagree with their bright ideas.

Hope you'll have at some of my posts on comics on my blog. I talk about the DCnU and the Titans quite a bit.


I stopped reading DC in 2007; the reboot seems to say "And Stay out!"
