There’s a new superhero team coming to Titans season 2, and here’s every DC hero confirmed as a member. The debut season of Titans delved into Dick Grayson‘s crime-fighting past and touched upon his days prowling the streets with Hank Hall (Hawk) and Dawn Granger (Dove). Wonder Woman’s young protege, Donna Troy, was also a known associate of Dick’s during those fast times as teenage superheroes. However, it appears that Titans season 2 is rebranding that old partnership as the original Titans outfit, with Aqualad also revealed as a founding member.
The Titans season 2 trailer makes clear that Dick is putting together a brand new team, with Bruce Wayne excitedly claiming, “I see you made the news with your old Titans friends. New ones too.” Another scene highlights a now comic-accurate Raven asking, “So what are we? Titans 2.0?” It’s not immediately clear in the trailer which scenes could depict the original Titans and which are set within the present day, but it’s possible to get a solid idea of what the new-look Titans team will look liked when season 2 arrives.

Titans 2.0 consists of:
- Robin (Dick Grayson) – The leader of both groups, confirmed to be putting a new version of the Titans together.
- Raven (Rachel Roth) – Asks if “we” are Titans 2.0, confirming her own involvement in the new group.
- Robin (Jason Todd) – Screams “Titans are back, bitches!” in front of a TV camera. Won’t have the last laugh.
- Wonder Girl (Donna Troy) – Seen fighting alongside Starfire, thereby confirming her involvement in the new team.
- Starfire (Koriand’r) – Fighting an unknown enemy alongside Wonder Girl.
- Beast Boy (Gar Logan) – Briefly seen operating a computer console with Grayson, Todd and Roth.
A further two possible candidates are Superboy and Aqualad. The trailer confirms that the Kyptonian clone and his dog will have a major role in Titans season 2, and it appears that the character could even help out against Trigon following season 1’s big cliffhanger, but there’s no footage of Superboy working alongside the other Titans. Furthermore, Drew Van Acker’s Aqualad is shown fighting as a member of the original Titans crew, but it’s not currently known whether he’ll be a member of the new team also. The remaining two founding Titans, Hawk and Dove, were in rough shape following Titans‘ first season, so it’s unlikely they’ll be a part of the new crew.
While the trailer for Titans season 2 is certainly exciting, and expands the mythos of both the show and the superhero team-up group, it also somewhat rewrites events from season 1. So far in Titans, there has been no mention that Robin’s partnership with Hawk, Dove and Wonder Girl was actually the original incarnation of the Teen Titans and it feels like a strange addition to make so late in the day. On the plus side, one of the biggest criticisms coming out of Titans season 1 was a lack of action from the group as a whole. Dick’s history as the leader of the Teen Titans acts as a clear motivation for him to put his new friendships to good use and build a new crop of young vigilantes.
Titans season 2 premieres September 6th on DC Universe.
