About this time, the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' animated series premiered. After it became popular, the [[PowersThatBe powers that be]] decided they wanted a ''Teen Titans'' comic that resembled the show. Thus, both ''Titans'' and ''Young Justice'' were cancelled, and the more marketable characters from the latter were brought together with the more nostalgic characters from the former in the dark-natured Judd Winick-written miniseries ''Graduation Day'', which led into a relaunch of ''Teen Titans'' written by fan favorite GeoffJohns. On a side note, the aforementioned {{animesque}} cartoon got [[RecursiveAdaptation its own comic book adaptation]], ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo''.

This series was reasonably popular, but involved several changes in characterization which annoyed long-time fans. For instance, the FunPersonified character, Impulse, was shot in the kneecap (with ADD curing bullets, as many disgruntled fans have quipped) and suddenly became Kid Flash, a more intelligent and serious character than before (although he ''did'' retain some of the humor that made him popular in the first place), and the modern version of Superboy was {{retcon}}ned into having ComicBook/LexLuthor's DNA and worrying about [[InTheBlood turning evil because of it]]. Meanwhile, the {{Tomboy}} Cassie Sandsmark (aka Wonder Girl II) was stripped of her original personality and made TheChick, only there to mostly praise Superboy and do little else, only to then become increasingly spiteful and aggressive towards her teammates after he died. Generally, the ex-''Young Justice'' characters were on the receiving end of this, being made DarkerAndEdgier as an attempt to invoke the ''New Teen Titans'' days and the more modern DC sensibility of dark storytelling.

The series had been revamped again multiple times during that third volume, introducing new {{Legacy Character}}s (such as ''Franchise/SailorMoon''-esque Miss Martian and the cynical Bombshell), and attempting to be both LighterAndSofter (for example, bringing Wendy and Marvin from ''{{WesternAnimation/Superfriends}}'' into the DCU) and DarkerAndEdgier, killing off even ''more'' characters (such as the aforementioned Wendy and Marvin, at the hands of a murderous devil dog version of Wonder Dog, no less[[note]]Wendy actually did survive, but became paralyzed from the waist down[[/note]]). Such gore-filled editorial mandates led to writer Sean [=McKeever=] to quit the book in protest, and things spiraled further down the drain, to the extent that DC reunited the 80s New Teen Titans into their own book "Titans" (''again'') and the Teen Titans went through even more change. After two years, the various team members were 'graduated' to the Justice League (Troia), 'demoted' back to the Teen Titans book (Beast Boy and Raven) or killed off (Tempest). "Titans" was now about a Deathstroke-lead team of villains, while the simultaneous run on "Teen Titans", by comic newcomer Felicia Henderson, had few champions, even amongst the most rabid fans.

Around the start of 2011, J.T. Krul took over writing volume 3, with fan-favorite Nicola Scott on art, and so far, their run was fairly well-received compared to the previous writers. Yet this too would not last. Both Titan books were cancelled in August; these were replaced in September with a single book, written by ScottLobdell and drawn by Brett Booth, as part of DC's ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch. The starting line-up consisted of Red Robin, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and Solstice, along with with two new characters, Skitter and Bunker. Superboy starts out as an enemy under control of N.O.W.H.E.R.E., an organization devoted to capturing, controlling, or killing young metahumans. He eventually [[HeelFaceTurn joins the Titans]] after they save him from dying at the hands of his creators. This leads into The Culling, a crossover with [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} Legion Lost]], during which both groups face off against N.O.W.H.E.R.E.. After that, the revised origin for Cassandra Sandsmark was given, then the book tied in to ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily''. Trigon followed, as well as a ''ComicBook/ForeverEvil'' tie in that explored Kid Flash's origins.

At 30 issues, the book has now been cancelled once more. However, the series has been relaunched in July 2014 with a new #1, written by Will Pfeifer with Kenneth Rocafort as the artist. It has Red Robin, Wonder Girl, Beast Boy (in his original green, in fact), Bunker, and Raven as the starting line-up. In an interview, Pfeifer hints at the possibility of someone from the Superman and Flash families joining the team at a later point. According to the same interview, the run places a greater emphasis on the Titans being teenage heroes who haven't been heroes for very long. Apparently the events of ''Forever Evil'' ties into the new run, as the Titans draws the attention of super-powered teens around the world, good or bad, and that it may later tie into the weekly series ''Futures' End''.

This series was also not well-received for the same reasons as the last.

In late 2014 the first volume of ''Creator/JeffLemire'' and Terry Dodsonís ''ComicBook/TeenTitansEarthOne'' was released. The book re-imagining and updating the 80ís team in a contemporary setting, confirmed in ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'' to be in continuity with both ''ComicBook/SupermanEarthOne'' and ''ComicBook/BatmanEarthOne''.

In 2015, a 12-issue mini-series titled ''[[Comicbook/TitansHunt2015 Titans Hunt]]'', written by Dan Abnett, introduced past Teen Titans history into the post-Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}} DC Universe. Principle characters include Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Garth, Roy Harper, and Lilith. The series Retcons in that the original Teen Titans did indeed exist, and removes the new, negatively received characterisations of Donna Troy and Garth.

In 2016, as part of the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' event, two Titans series are being published. ''Titans'' began in June and follows up on a major plot point from ''DC Universe: Rebirth'' #1 and is also a continuation of ''Titans Hunt''. It features the reunited original Teen Titans, now all adults. ''Teen Titans'' was also announced, and features a Damian Wayne-led team of younger heroes. The line-up consists of the aforementioned Robin, Kid Flash, Raven, Beast Boy and Starfire.

* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: Happen in an issue entitled "A Swinging Christmas Carol" involving a stingy junkyard owner, junk smugglers, and a young boy in need of a motorized wheelchair. The Titans work out what's going on halfway through and, entirely undisturbed, take the opportunity to play the ghosts.



* Retcon: The New 52's Teen Titans history is... unstable, to say the least. The first year of its publishing had the Teen Titans existing, but dissolved. ''Teen Titans'' had Tim reference a previous incarnation of the Teen Titans, and ''Batwoman'' had Betty Kane reference being in the Teen Titans and fighting Deathstroke. ''Red Hood and the Outlaws'' had Roy mention a team consisting of him, Starfire, Dick, Cyborg and Garth, but it's never called the Teen Titans, though it is obvious it was meant to be them. Reprints and trade collections removed all references to the Teen Titans from these series, and it's retconned that Tim's team is the first. Cyborg doesn't even allude to ever being on ''any'' super team aside from the Justice League, where he's now a founding member.

* {{Fanservice}}: To an insane degree. Though notably, both Wolfman and Perez gave a bit of equal ground -- Dick Grayson was MrFanservice personified, and Deathstroke was set up as a "sexy older gentleman" type, and the female fans of the book reciprocated alongside the males drooling over Starfire and Wonder Girl.
** The {{Animesque}} cartoon series made Raven into the resident fanservice girl, complete with [[MostCommonSuperpower big breasts]], a skimpy costume (though usually obscured by her cape) and getting her clothes ripped off briefly during the Trigon arc. Which is a complete 180 from her original interpretation as a ''small-chested'', demure girl who didn't really get normal people. To make your head spin even more, they made '''Starfire''' small-chested. Yes, [[GagBoobs "Miss Balloon Bod"]] Starfire.

In UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}}, the series returned as ''The New Teen Titans'', launched in 1980. Written by Marv Wolfman and drawn by George Perez, this version of the series was the most successful and the most iconic (as well as being the version the [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans 2003 animated series]] is most based on). It brought back Robin, Wonder Girl, and Kid Flash, and teamed them up with new characters Comicbook/{{Cyborg}}, Raven, and Starfire, along with previously-established character [[Comicbook/DoomPatrol Beast Boy]], now renamed Changeling.

The original series began back in UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks, with a one-shot story in ''ComicBook/TheBraveAndTheBold'' #54 (July, 1964), where three {{Sidekick}}s, ComicBook/{{Robin}}, [[Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} Aqualad]], and [[{{TheFlash}} Kid Flash]], teamed up. The issue sold notably well, and, after a few more tryouts and the addition of WonderGirl (despite her actually intended to be the the original Wonder Woman as a girl, and not a contemporary sidekick) and [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Speedy]], became an ongoing series.
