I know I've done this before, but I thought it was time to update my Teen Titans: Next Class concept. As before I have Tim Drake (Robin), Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark), Kid Flash (Bart Allen), Static (Virgil Ovid Hawkins) and Aquagirl (Lorena Marquez) on my team, but this time I added Indigo as a six member.
My idea is that Indigo, an android from the future, is sent back in time to form a team and stop a great danger. Only problem is, she get damaged and forgets what the actual danger is. Still bent on stop whatever it is, she reforms the Titans, with the next generation characters. The idea is similar to both how Raven formed the New Teen Titans, and how Cyborg did it with the Next Gen. Teen Titans. Since this is the animated universe things can be a bit different. The reason I picked Indigo instead of having Miss Martian or Ravager as the sixth member was because I thought the possibilities with her on the team was just more interesting, and she has a neat look that compliments the team.
Art wise, I updated all of them except for Aquagirl and Wonder Girl. Their designs were dead on perfect last time. Robin got some new hair, belt, and gloves. Static got a complete make-over so he looked less like his the cartoon Static Shock and more badass. Bart I tweaked the colors so he was wearing the Impulse colors on the Kid Flash outfit, which I really like. As for Indigo, she's a mixture of various comic outfits and some aspects of Brainiac-type characters. (If there is a big demand for it, I can post these guys up individually later on.)
Indigo (Brainiac 8) was created by Judd Winick and Alé Garza. Aquagirl (Lorena Marquez) was created by Will Pfeifer and Patrick Gleason. Robin (Tim Drake) was created by Marv Wolfman and Pat Broderick. Static (Virgil Ovid Hawkins) was created by Dwayne McDuffie, Robert L. Washington III, and John Paul Leon. Kid Flash (Bart Allen) was created by Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo. Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark) was created by John Byrne. All characters are owned by DC Comics.
Wow I really like how you redesigned Static and Indigo younger looks is cool too Robin's cosutime looks like it's been reworked to, and I can't make much of a comment of Aquagirl, wonderigirl and kid flash but their designs look cool too.
Tim was the first leader. When Batman "died", Tim left the group to search for Bruce, because he believed him still to be alive. During the time he was gone, Cassie took over. When Tim came back (as Red Robin), there was a bit of "who's the leader here?" type of mentality, but he left it up to her. After some time, Cassie gave back the leadership to Tim, saying she didn't want the responsibility anymore. It should also be noted that Cassie and Tim didn't fight for the role, that when either of them was in charge they followed without question. Even when Tim came back and Cassie was in charge, she'd ask for his suggestions, but he never tried to take over.
It's kinda funny. Dick and Donna have a brother/sister relationship and haven't really fought that much. (a few here and there, but not lasting arguments where they don't like each other for a long time). Tim and Cassie have always been close, and even shared a kiss or two. Bruce and Diana... have this unspoken thing between each other. It's not really romantic (in the comics) but there is this thing between them that they respect the other more so than that other member of the trinity. I guess Bat Wonders go hand-in-hand.
Why did they turn Clark into a d*** anyway? He's supposed to be the role model for the DC Universe not a d***. But yes Bat Wonders just click. I think I'll be making a DC earth of my own called EarthSA in the future just to have my DCU. I hate a lot of the nu52 changes because they changed Alan Scott completely. I don't think they should change established character history also once a character dies they stay dead none of this re-vitalizing or ret-conning and no ripoff characters exhibit A Damian Wayne.
Yeah I often tell people that New 52 Clark is really 2000s Conner Kent. (which is all the more funny a Conner is also in the 52 universe) It's not the same character anymore. But I'm with you. I really don't like most of the 52 changes. Some of the outfit changes are okay, but it isn't like I'm screaming "Yes, finally, no trunks over the tights!" (That being said I like Wonder Woman's outfit) Then again, I'm sure when big universe changes happened in the past the older fans back then didn't like them, so I can only wonder if its the same case here. Regardless I think new 52 is trying to be a bit more like Modern Marvel and a little less like Previous DC. I really don't like it as I want my Marvel to be Marvel and my DC to be DC. Marvel has the relatable characters, DC has my heroes and role models. I don't want Superman to be an emo bitch.
