Teen Titans has had several members since its debut in 1964. Comic book author Gail Simone has taken to Twitter to reveal fans’ favorite titans.
On Twitter, Gail Simone – known for his work on Bat girl and other comics – have asked DC Comics fans to answer a new question that involves Teen Titans. She wants to know everyone’s top three favorite Titans. As happened with her past hashtag trends, fans have eagerly shared their favorites, allowing them to see who some of the most popular teenage heroes actually are across a wide audience.
In previous months, Gail Simone has asked fans to reveal their superhero love affairs as well as guess what items are in Deadpool’s bags. Both went viral and were greeted with a barrage of responses from fans. The latest hashtag trend – # Fave3Titans – from Gail Simone‘s Twitter provides a great opportunity to express appreciation for the Teen Titans, whose list has changed a lot over the years. The team first debuted in 1964, and its numerous members have had plenty of time to impress readers and become favorites.
To get things started, Simone shared her personal top three, which included Nightwing, Wonder Girl and Kole. Nightwing has stolen fans’ hearts as a hero, so his presence is no surprise. Wonder Girl is another core member with frequent appearances, but whether she thinks Donna Troy or Cassie Sandsmark is not clear (both are amazing). Coal, however, is an interesting choice as she has not had an extensive history in comics since she was introduced in 1985 and killed the following year during Crisis on infinite lands. She returned briefly, only to be confirmed as being dead. Fans’ choices were a little more anticipated.
For me it’s Nightwing, Wonder Girl, and for hell’s I really loved Cole.# Fave3Titans

As might be expected from his popularity and longevity in comics, Dick Grayson as Robin or Nightwing is a top favorite among fans. His position at the top seems pretty much undisputed, even occupying all three spots for some fans. His adopted brothers Tim Drake and Damian Wayne both appeared on fan lists, but not nearly as often as Dick and his other teammates. Raven and Starfire were also some of the most popular choices.
Some fans were specific about which version of a hero they preferred. While Wonder Girl’s name was listed as a big favorite, Donna is far more popular than Cassie. Some mentioned Changeling over Beast Boy and returned to Gar Logan’s shift from his previous code name. Donna Troy’s alternative name, Troia, was also mentioned several times. Additionally, there were a few divisions between Conner Kent and Kon-El as Superboy.
Donna Troy and Beast Boy were popular choices, though Cyborg was selected far less, despite his prominent place on the team across a number of media outlets. The top picks were easily Nightwing / Robin, Raven, Wonder Girl, Starfire and Beast Boy. However, Kid Flash made several fan lists. Other characters less frequently seen include Terra, Static, Bunker, Stitch, Omen, Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes), Kyle Rayner, Harlequin, Flamebird, and Kid Devil. Despite the fact that Supergirl has a fairly prominent role in comics in general, she was not a popular choice among fans of favorite Teen Titan.
No matter how many other titans show up, there is no doubt who the most popular are. This is especially true when fans fill their list with the same hero or heroine. This was the case with both Raven and Nightwing.
Raven, determined. So enough Raven, Raven or Raven. I would also like to have Raven in there, but then I would have to make room for Raven.
So those must be my choices. pic.twitter.com/itIENgOr0n

Despite the issue of Teen Titans in every medium, fans were eager to give their favorite races to characters where Wolfman / Pérez was a popular choice.
Thanks to Gail Simonefans were too eager to share their favorite Teen Titans. While Nightwing was certainly the trophy holder for popularity as usual, there was a great performance for many Titans. As always Bat girl writer knows how to bring positive shows of fandom forward in the cartoon.
