The Cartoon and Comic Book started out as ‘The Teen Titans’.  The founding members were; Robin, Kid Flash, Speedy, Aqualad and Wonder Girl.  Then in the eighties the comic book grew to include; Starfire, Raven, Cyborg, and Beast Boy.  And the roster continued to grow to include; Hawk and Dove, Lilith, Terra, Jericho, etc…  Well so far, the new live-action TITANS series has shown us their version of Robin, and now Hawk and Dove make their debut.

Hawk has super strength, increased endurance, and anger management issues.  While Dove has mystical abilities and a calming can’t-we-all-just-get-along vibe. Hawk is being played by Alan Ritchson, who played Aquaman on SMALLVILLE. And Dove is Minka Kelly from FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. Robin is Brenton Thwaites.  But I’m anxious to see what Starfire and Beast Boy look like.  She’s orange and he’s green, so it will be interesting to see how the show portrays them.

And here’s what the team looked like in 1967…
