The Titans are the main protagonists of the 2018 DC Universe turned HBO Max series Titans.

Thought the "baby" versions of the Teen Titans would go away, think again!

Why They All Suck

Overall

  1. Cyborg is absent from the team. Despite later comics currently have him being part of the Justice League (replacing Martian Manhunter or Shazam), he is more fondly remembered for being in the Teen Titans. So far, and most likely because of his role in the Doom Patrol show, he has never made an appearance.
  2. They barely have any connection to the Arrowverse or the DC Extended Universe, despite it had nothing to do with it and is a separate universe.
    • There's nothing wrong with that in particular, but it would have been interesting to see them be part of either universe but also be a standalone one so that they don't get in the way of everyone else. Also, They were even given a cameo in TV event adaptation of Crisis on Infinite Earths, where they literally played no role in it.
  3. They try too hard to be edgy.
  4. The team all act like jerks to one another, showing they are all toxic to each other.
  5. They nearly drive Jason to suicide with accusations that make no sense.
  6. They broke up, at first in the second season, over the most stupidest reason. They didn't break up because of a villain's threat or a villain killing a member of the team, they broke up over Dick hiding a secret. They even got mad at Dick over the secret! While hiding a secret is something to get mad about, it's not something that could break up a team!
  7. For being heroes, they are more than willing to kill people just so that the show can be edgy and TV-MA rated.
  8. The actors' performances are bland and often comes off as cringe worthy to be taken seriously.

Dick Grayson

  1. Despite being named Dick Grayson, he, for some reason, has the personality of Jason Todd, mainly being more brutal.
  2. He repeatedly blames his being a brutal vigilante on Batman, under the claim of "He was training me to be a weapon". It makes no sense as we never see Batman doing any of those things. This would make sense if the show's Batman was the version from the controversial and universally hated comic book series All-Star Batman and Robin, The Boy Wonder but it's not.
    • Speaking of Batman, he barely suits up in his batsuit as of season 2-3.
  3. He kept abandoning the Titans to go do his own things. It gets to the point where one can start to question why he's even with the team to begin with if he's just going to constantly abandon them.
  4. His infamous "F*** Batman" statement. Nothing more needs to be said about that.

Starfire

  1. Her race is changed, as she is brown-skinned rather than orange. This is another example of redheads being blackwashed.
  2. Also, she looks like a trashy hooker or drug dealer who has just gone thrift shopping. This was something many had a problem with when the costume was first revealed. Even those who cosplay as Starfire do a better version of the costume than that! Thankfully, season 2 changed this by making her have long, natural hair and normal clothes and season 3 giving her a suit that resembles that of her comic counterparts.
  3. Her powers have been changed from energy starbolts to literal fire, which just proves the directors and/or the screenwriters don't know a thing about Starfire or her powers.

Beast Boy

  1. He is no longer green. This part is very strange considering that, when he's an animal, he's actually green and yet he's normal skinned when he's human.
  2. His relationship with Raven looks wrong due to their age gap.
  3. He barely uses his powers due to the show's budget and when he does, it's the same animal (e.g a tiger). This doesn't even make any sense considering he's called Beast Boy.
  4. He always has to get naked when transforming. This would be solved if he was given a special outfit (Like the one he wears in the comics) where his clothes wouldn't have to be taken off or torn apart when transforming but so far, there is no such thing.

Raven

  1. She repeatedly lashes out at Beast Boy despite him being nothing but helpful to her.
  2. She comes off more like a scared little kid than someone who is supposed to be mature.
  3. Her powers look really awful, it makes the powers from the Arrowverse look good in comparison.
  4. She has some laughably awful quotes like, "You know what they say...genetics is destiny".
  5. She looks more like a wannabe emo kid.

Dawn Granger

  1. She has a holier-than-thou attitude, which doesn't fit with the show's tone.
  2. She cheated on Dick with Hank.
  3. Despite her holier-than-thou attitude, as mentioned previously, she encourages other people's bad behaviors and then backtracks when things don't go her way.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. They are not as loathsome than the Teen Titans from the 2013 TV spin-off show, Teen Titans Go!.
  2. The costumes look good.
  3. Jericho is probably the only likable member of the group.
  4. They slightly improved as of Season 3.
