Birdflash commission from Karl Kerschl (karlkerschl.com) at TCAF today! What a dude!
“Although some of the books are good, the reason I will never be able to fully enjoy the New 52 is because my favourite characters are the Wolfman/Perez Teen Titans. And even though they were no longer working together their friendships were still a huge part of the DC continuity. They were the reason I got into comics and that those friendships and some of those characters no longer exist is just really disheartening.”

‘I know what I look like and there’s nothing wrong with being pretty. But if that’s all that I am I’d be pretty boring.’

See? This is why I always liked Starfire. Yes she came from a another planet and was wonderfully forward about men and sex but that was always only a small part of her.
^ This. Anyone who thinks that Kory’s character is nothing but fanservice with a smile doesn’t know all that much about her. Yeah, she’s a sexual character, and that’s always been part of who she is, but she’s also a complex and awesome character. She’s beautiful, and she is awesomely confident about her looks and comfortable in her own skin, but her looks don’t define her. And, let’s be honest, she’s a total sweetheart but she’s also the one you do NOT want to get angry. Underestimating her just might get you killed.
The problem is, the reboot has gotten rid of most of this. Without the nuance, she becomes just a pretty face with lasers. Which is a crying shame.
So I heard you like Teen Titans, huh? Well here’s the masterpost for you. What? You’ve never heard of DC’s Teen Titans? Where have you been living in, a cave? Haha, just kidding.
Stolen from Wikipedia (but then changed/paraphrased by me):The Teen Titans, also known as the New Teen Titans, New Titans, or simply the Titans, is a fictional superhero team appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, often in eponymous monthly series.As the group’s name suggests, its membership is usually composed of teenaged superheroes.
- The first incarnation of the team unofficially debuted in The Brave and the Bold #54 as a “junior Justice League” featuring Robin (DG), Kid Flash (WW), and Aqualad. They later officially debuted as “Teen Titans” in #60 of the same series by this time joined by Wonder Girl (DT) and Speedy (RH).
- In 1980, DC relaunched the team as The New Teen Titans, aging the characters to young adulthood. Original members Robin, Wonder Girl, and Kid Flash were joined by new characters Cyborg, Starfire, and Raven, as well as Beast Boy, now using the name Changeling.
- The series was relaunched as Teen Titans in October 1996, with a roster of all-new members under the mentorship of the Atom (Ray Palmer), who had been de-aged to his teenage years; the series ended in September 1998 after 24 issues.
- A three-issue limited series called JLA/The Titans: The Technis Imperative (December 1998-February 1999) led to the March 1999 debut of The Titans, a series featuring select Titans from all of the group’s incarnations that ran for 50 issues until April 2003.
- A new regular series titled Teen Titans began in September 2003, featuring Cyborg, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Raven of the 1980s group joined by new teenaged versions of Robin (Tim Drake), Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark), and Kid Flash (Bart Allen), as well as the Superman clone Superboy (Kon-El).
- By 2006 the team consisted of only the younger members and some new additions; a concurrent series called Titans debuted in April 2008 featuring some of the “classic” Titans from the original and 1980s rosters, with Dick Grayson, Donna Troy, Wally West, Garth, and Roy Harper using their “adult” codenames Nightwing, Troia, Flash, Tempest, and Arsenal, respectively.
- A Teen Titans animated television series ran on Cartoon Network from July 2003 to January 2006. Based on the 1980s version of the team, but diverging from that continuity in some ways, the series spawned two related comic book titles, Teen Titans Go! and Tiny Titans.
This masterpost is compiled of all the Teen Titans eras and all links are under the cut. Everything is in order by the series and the issues for each. If you’re looking for a particular series go to the wiki page to find out series it falls under. :T
I believe the word you’re looking for is gaydar.

There is literally no comment I can add to this to make it more hilarious than it already is.
