When I wrote my recent review of TITANS VOL. 1, I disclosed at the beginning of that piece that I have a deep abiding love for the Teen Titans that has existed since I was a young child. The first comic I bought on my own was NEW TEEN TITANS #39 which features the classic Teen Titans team and still has Terra on the team masquerading as an ally to the rest of her peers.
Every superhero or super team in the DCU has a story or two that define who or what they are at their core—their very own DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, if you will—and for the Teen Titans, that story is THE JUDAS CONTRACT.
San Diego Comic-Con wasn't a competition, but if it was, DC Super Hero Girls would have taken top prize in the category of being awesome. The animated series made a splash with its first appearance at the large convention, and it got attention without having to set off any save the day alarms.
