In 2016, as part of the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' event, two Titans series are being published. ''[[Comicbook/TitansRebirth 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. ''[[Comicbook/TeenTitansRebirth 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. The two series will crossover with ''ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}'' in ''The Lazarus Contract'', which will feature Deathstroke trying to resurrect his son Grant, and also serve to clear up the ContinuitySnarl of the Titans' history post-Flashpoint.

* AccidentalPornomancer: The demon Trigon [[DemonicPossession takes control of Tim]] and uses the opportunity to seduce both Comicbook/WonderGirl and Solstice into sex. All three parties are shocked when this is discovered, but [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization all agreed that they enjoyed it]]. Tim is also perplexed when it's stated that [[MoreThanMindControl he wasn't exactly]] FightingFromTheInside and was a participant. He and Wonder Girl later begin a relationship proper due to lingering passions from the night they shared together.



* InNameOnly: Due to a combination of reboots, ExecutiveMeddling, and some DorkAge traits rearing their head, this winds up being true for a good portion of the cast. "Tim Drake" is the alias of Red Robins's unnamed parent-endangering alter ego, Kid Flash isn't actually "Bart Allen" but instead Bar Torr the future terrorist/rebel, and due to time travel shenanigans, Superboy ends up being replaced by the evil Jon Kent, with none of his [[IdiotBall friends, including the Batman-trained detective,]] the wiser. Note: all three characters were the original founding members of the comic-ComicBook/YoungJustice. Fans... were displeased.

* ComicBookTime: When Dan Didio took the helm at DC, the ''Titans'' franchise got locked into a sort of perpetual youth, with even some of the oldest veterans and regulars (Beast Boy, Raven) presented as being roughly at the same age and maturity level as new up-and-comers (Young Justice transplants, Miss Martian, etc.).

* AgeLift: Damian, who couldn't have been older than six (see {{Retcon}} below) is shown celebrating his thirteenth birthday.
* TheAtoner:
** [=NuWally=], for his delinquent past.
** Damian for his part in the League of Assassins.
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: There are seemingly two Titans Towers, but botha re shaped like a 'T'.
* CommonalityConnection: Superman and Wally West, as both remember the world as it was pre-Flashpoint.
* DangerousSixteenthBirthday: 13, rather than 16, but same principle for Damian. His grandfather has determined that he chooses whether he'll return to the League of Assassins and take his place, or remain as Batman's son and be hunted down.
* DareToBeBadass: Damian gives this speech to the other members of the Titans while trying to get them on-board.
-->'''Damian:''' Tim Drake and I had our differences, but I'll admit he was a great man. Despite his best efforts, over the past few years the Teen Titans have been losers, criminals—a joke. They epitomized what's wrong with this younger generation of so-called heroes—they didn't deserved to be called a "super-team". But we could do better. There are five of us. Five fingers make a fist. Join me... '''I dare you'''.
* DeadAnimalWarning: In #1, Ra's al Ghul sends Damian Wayne (a.k.a. Robin) a dead robin on his 13th birthday.
* DividedWeFall: Damian explains this as his reasoning for reforming the Teen Titans.
-->'''Damian:''' Individually, you're weak... but together, you're strong. Unless I'm wrong, you've got the makings of a '''''super-team'''''. And I'm '''''never''''' wrong.
* ForcedSleep: Raven is capable of doing this, as seen with Goliath.
* FreudianSlip: Damian has one where when asked who he thinks he is, he declares "I'm Batman." He later corrects it to state he's the "Son of Batman" but Raven can tell its his ambition to become as great or greater as his father.
* HomeBase: The two Titans Towers:
** The Titans' tower is located in Manhattan after the Titans seemingly misinterpret Abra Kadabra's thoughts ([[spoiler:it's obvious he was referring to ''Doctor'' Manhattan]]).
** Damian's team have their own, separate tower shaped like a 'T'. However, their tower is black and red.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: Implied to be part of why Damian forms the Teen Titans.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Mara wants everything Damian has, ignoring her own teammates wishes for her own goal.
* ItsPersonal: Mara pretty much has it out for Damian, her cousin, for throwing away everything she wanted and then scarring her eye.
* KidnappedByAnAlly: Damian essentially kidnaps all the members of the Titans, to save their lives and bring them under his fold.
* TheKindnapper: Damian... sort of.
* LonelyRichKid: Damian spends his thirteenth birthday with Alfred and his pets. For some unexplained reason, neither Bruce Wayne nor Dick Grayson could make it. And apparently it wasn't even just that incident; later issues show that Damian doesn't think ''anyone'' cares about him, so apparently his relationships with Bruce and Dick, and even Alfred, have been re-written.
* LongLastParent: Apparently Mara's father was in the League of Shadows at some point before being expelled. Who her mother is, and which of the parents is related to the al Ghul bloodline and how, hasn't been expounded upon.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The Linda Park seen in the Speed Force. It's not exactly clear whether she's the Speed Force itself, Wally's subconscious, or even the original Linda Park.
* MistakenIdentity: Donna Troy is confused for Wonder Woman by the general public, since she looks and dresses like the latter.
* MythologyGag: At Beast Boy's house party, a blonde girl called Tara flirts with him, a reference to his former love interest Terra.
* OffModel: In ''Titans: Rebirth'', Wally in his Kid Flash suit. Specifically, his logo is a red lightning bolt in a white circle with a red outline. When it ''shouldn't'' be, and in fact isn't in anything else, including ''DC Universe: Rebirth'' and subsequent issues of ''Titans''. Wally never used the circle on his Kid Flash suit; that's a Bart Allen thing, Wally's has always just been a simple red lightning bolt.
* ThePowerOfLove: Because of his love for the Titans and ''especially'' Linda, Wally is able to cover four cities in less than 8 seconds.
* RedHerring: Inverted. ''DC Universe: Rebirth'' #1 first implied that the person behind the disappearance of Wally West was [[spoiler:Dr. Manhattan]]. However, the series has Abra Kadabra outright say that it was his doing... then it's heavily implied that he's working for [[spoiler:Dr. Manhattan]] somehow.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Mara is introduced in ''Teen Titans'' and is said to be Damian's cousin (her father was in the League of Assassins), even though he's never mentioned her and she's never taken part in the League's activities before.
* {{Retcon}}: Oh so, so many.
** From ''Titans'':
*** Wally West's entire existence. He was originally just turned into Wally West II, the Kid Flash seen in ''Teen Titans''. Instead, he is now retconned in as part of the New 52 history, but was trapped in the Speed Force and forgotten the entire time.
*** Donna Troy makes mention of being an orphan raised by the Amazons. This is in direct conflict with her origin in the New 52, where she's a clone of Wonder Woman made from clay.
** From ''Teen Titans'':
*** Damian's age. Post-Flashpoint, it's specifically shown that Bruce Wayne only operated as Batman for 5 years when the current stories are set, and we see what he was doing in his first year and he never met Talia al Ghul. The modern stories take place across another two years. That would make Damian, at oldest, ''six''.
*** [=NuWally=]'s relationship with Daniel West is one as a result of the return of Wally West. Originally, his father is Rudy West and Daniel West (the Reverse-Flash) is his CoolUncle. In the Rebirth era, Daniel West is his ''father'' (Rudy is once again the father of the older Wally).
* ScarsAreForever: Mara has one from when Damian sent a knife she threw at him back, right over her eye.
* SpotlightStealingSquad: In ''Titans'', Wally West gets the most focus by a ''huge'' margin, gets the most focus on covers, and the ''variant covers'' put even ''more'' focus on him. In fact, the opening arc is called "The Return of Wally West", and even that title is a reference to one of ''his'' solo stories from ''The Flash''. The other characters each get a moment every few issues, but so far the series largely serves as the series where Wally's new status quo can be established. However, you'll find ''very'' few fans who have a problem with this, as Wally is a ''huge'' EnsembleDarkHorse and was missing for the entirety of the New 52, unlike the rest of the team. At the same time, his status in-canon is shaky and has to be addressed, as do his memories of the pre-Flashpoint universe. Not only that, but it's agreed that the series wouldn't be selling anywhere near as well without him in a starring role, and that the series would probably be cancelled not long after he left.
* TakeThat: Damian's speech to the team (see above) takes a jab at the New 52 ''Teen Titans'' runs, using arguments that fans had been using for ''years'' when discussing the team.
* WellDoneSonGuy: A female variation in that Mara wants Ra's approval more than anything.
* WildTeenParty: Beast boy throws one, renting out a house in order to draw in a crowd.
* WorkingWithTheEx: Wally dated Lilith at some point prior to his disappearance.
* WorthyOpponent: Each member of the Demon Fist has chosen a member of the Titans to kill as a sort of initiation into the group.
