Till DEATH Do Us Part! by Glee-chan Till DEATH Do Us Part! by Glee-chan
This is my take of a comic book cover by Tom Grummett and Al Vey for New Titans #100. [link] As the cover shows, Raven interrupts Koriand'r and Dick Grayson's wedding, as the Titans look on in horror. (Raven was evil… again). I thought it would be fun if I duplicated this scene in the Teen Titans animated style created by Glen Murakami



The New Teen Titans, which this picture is referencing, was a book created by Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. Starfire, Raven, Cyborg where created by this duo. Robin by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Beast Boy by Arnold Drake and Bob Brown, Aqualad by Robert Bernstein and Ramona Fradon, Speedy by Mort Weisinger and Paul Norris, and Kid Flash by John Broome and Carmine Infantino.

Raven's problem is she wants Nightwing right?

Well, technically, Raven's demon side is bi. It wants Nightwing yet kisses Starfire. In the end though, Evil Raven is destroyed and the purity of Raven's soul goes on a spiritual journey. Raven also had somewhat of a crush on Jericho (Slade's mute son), but due to Trigon's impending arrival and the fact that Jericho was in love with Kole, nothing came of it. When Raven returns under the pen of Geoff Johns in 2003, she and Beast Boy get paired up and the original comic timeline ends on a BB/Rae note (with the two kissing).

Relationships with raven are always tricky. She needs someone who can handle those kind of emotions. BB and Nightwing are more like brothers even if she wishes Nightwing were a little more than one.

Except the original timeline ended on a BB/Rae relationship. In that case, opposites attract.

That may be but Raven's always had issues when it comes to BB, she likes him but doesn't know if he can handle a girlfriend with multiple personalities and possibly kjll him which is why it's never taken off.

It did take off. It was canon for EIGHT YEARS in the original comics (2003-2011) before the recent reboot and is basically canon in the current TTG series (Terra-rized, Matched, Colors of Raven, Legs, Man Person, Pirates, etc.).

Ok. Although I wouldn't refer to the 1985-2011 comics as original because they aren't. Original is 1938-1985 DC has official names for each era of comics Pre-crisis is anything from 1938-1985 which has internal sub-designations Gold (38-54) Silver (55-75) and Bronze (75-85) Crisis on Infinite Earths is the big reboot kicking off the more logical Post-Crisis age Chrome age being the term for the first decade of them then "modern" age. Nu52 is the current series. I've seen a few  of the eps but I don't really like TTG current, I prefer the original TTG from 2003 (they kinda touched on either Raven or Terra, producers confirming Terra as who BB is supposed to end up with.)

I know that the original Titans are Dick, Donna, Roy, Wally, and Garth. I'm not ignorant of the Titans' comic history. But in terms of the era that the shows (both 2003-2006 and 2013-present) are based, it is the Wolfman-Perez era that the show's largely based on, with some sprinkles of more recent comics in there also. I like the 2003 Titans too, but I just don't see BB ending up with Terra permanently. Just like with the comics before it, Terra betrayed the Titans for Slade like a cheap whore (in fact, the original script ideas for why Terra so easily went to Slade in the show called for Terra to have a crush on Slade as a reference to their relationship in the comics that Terra herself instigated) and "died" as a result (her turning to stone was the for-kids equivalent to her more brutal comic death of being crushed by the very rocks she intended to use to crush the building she, the Titans, and Slade were standing in), only to return with her memories wiped (which was of one of the 3 origins for Terra II in the comics, by the way).

Here's a comparison of comic Terra and the original show's version:

Here's basically the comic and show's ways of killing Terra off:

Here's basically the end of the show and Terra II's death in comics:

In the proposed season 6 before the show was ultimately axed, Terra was supposed to rejoin the team - ala the comics' Terra II arc - but I wouldn't foresee BB getting with her long-term, because BB should at least be smarter than that and realize that Terra stabbed him in the back for her own petty, selfish needs and that he doesn't need that drama bullshit anymore, especially when Raven had already warned him of Terra's intentions well before the betrayal happened (Raven's vision occurred both in the comics and in the show, yet in both, Raven gives Terra the benefit of doubt & look where that got her) and was always there for him, anyway in her own unique way. 

Instead of seeing Terra for what she was, BB was too blinded by his puppy love crush to see anything bad in Terra. He then blames Raven and calls her jealous. While it is true that Raven might have been jealous for several reasons ("That I tricked you, that I nearly wiped out your team, that everyone [but mainly BB and Starfire] liked me better than you" to quote Terra herself from Aftershock pt.1 & the fact that "I have to meditate every day to handle my powers and we're to think that you can just suddenly control yours" to quote Raven regarding at how quickly Terra improved), this doesn't change the fact that the choices Terra made were ultimately her own.

Slade may have prodded her towards him, but up until he already assumed supreme access to her powers by way of the nano suit affixed to Terra's body ("Her body, my control"), the choice to join Slade was Terra's to make, and given her character's track record, backstabbing people and betraying their trust is in her blood, because that sole purpose of being a moll is the reason why Terra even exists as a character, considering that Marv and George created her solely for shock value.


In stark opposition to troubled Terra, tRaven would never think about betraying her friends for her own happiness in either the original comics nor the original show, because her friends are what make her happy (well, as happy as she can get, considering her demonic heritage and having emotionally-linked powers tied to said genetics). The only reason Raven sold out to Trigon is because she saw no way out of her situation after fighting Trigon's influence her entire life, whereas Terra always ultimately had a choice - join the Titans or join Slade - and Terra chose the latter. In the end, Raven defeated Trigon and is all the better for it (she and BB were comic canon for eight years and were the end couple for the original comics timeline, are basically canon in TTG, and probably would've gone that direction in the old show had it continued and stayed reasonably faithful to the sources it was based upon), whereas Terra in the original comics timeline is as dead as a door nail (her dopplegangers don't count and her return as a Black Lantern zombie was short-lived), Terra in the old show is happy without remembering her past life, and Terra in TTG is basically a tamer version of her chain-smoking jail bait comic counterpart (this Terra should've been in the original show honestly, in order to keep true to the character's existence and motivations, but wasn't in the original show presumably due to the show's intended demographic, which is ironic, since the original show has always seemed to be ahead maturity-wise in terms of demographics in comparison to TTG).

It's sort of sadly ironic. Terra, the bad seed (*cues the catchy MLP season 3 anti-bully anthem from "One Bad Apple" [ www.youtube.com/watch?v=whl91k… in reference to Tara Strong's multiple voice acting roles and the fact that TTG Raven is herself a pegasister*), ends up bringing the Titans closer together, whereas Raven, the strong-willed one who never tries to give into her inhibitions and who is really devoted to those closest to her, nearly ends up destroying the team, yet the comics ended up with BB/Rae as the final end-all-be-all before the recent reboot that retconned everything up to the Flashpoint event (meaning that, the original 60's Titans time, the Marv and George era that the original show was based upon, and the 2003-2011 time that had BB/Rae as canon were all erased from continuity to create the Nu52, completely decimating decades of history and character development).

I would suggest the covers based on the epic Judas Contract storyline, or the NTT V1 issue 1.

Oh, gods...:XD: I laughed so hard at this! Not in a bad way, though! I like how fans of the cartoon acknowledge the comics! It's just, I don't know! LOL. Starfire's expression really got me going! LOLOL. What're they doing getting married?! They're 15-16! XDDDDD;;; In the comics, they were adults...X,D Then again, Dick looks significantly better in the cartoon style. That mullet was a mistake.

Only critique though, is Cyborg's robot eye is on the wrong side. ^^; Your overall artwork is awesome, though! You did a great job duplicating the cartoon's style! :aww:

Naturally when I got to his face I completely forgot I did this >.<
