Teen Titans: Year One

Newsarama reports that DC Comics will be publishing no less than five Year One miniseries next year in order to spotlight, streamline, and redefine some of those characters who will prove significant to the DC Universe in the months to come. Among the five titles is Teen Titans: Year One from Amy Wolfram and Karl Kerschl and, as DC Executive Editor Dan Didio explains, the miniseries will involve the earliest incarnation of the team. This means the story will be offering some insight into the young Wally West's introductory interaction with his teammates.

"Basically, it all ties into the concept that we came out of Infinite Crisis with, where we’re looking at some characters that, over the years, given the twists and turns and reboots and shifting continuities, may have had their focus shifted a little. These allow us to refocus the direction for each one of these characters and reestablish their origins are, and also where they might be headed to in the future...

"We want to go back and show what the earliest team was, and rebuild that origin, too. I don’t think we’ve ever done a Year One with that team before, and by doing this, it will allow us to look at the relationship between Robin and Wonder Girl and Kid Flash, Speedy, Aqualad and the rest as the team is built, while showing some of the lesser-known Teen Titans characters along the way.And also, because we’re in the position of creating the Titans East, we thought it would be a good time to go back and establish the roots a little more of the original team."
