Synopsis for "Titans: Then & Now (Part I of IV)"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- Chapter one of the "Then & Now" story-arc.
- Double-sized 48-page special.
- This issue is narrated by Nightwing.
- Donna Troy's absence from the main story in this issue is explained by the fact that she is mourning the recent loss of her ex-husband and son, Terry and Robbie Long, who tragically died in a car accident shortly before the events from this issue.
- Loren Jupiter was the benefactor of the original Teen Titans, making consistent appearances from Teen Titans #25 to Teen Titans #41. It is unclear at which point in time the events from the flashbacks are supposed to take place.
- In the final flashback, Robin ruminates, "A few weeks before this case we watched as a proud, noble man was gunned down". No indication is provided as to who Robin is referring to.
- In the flashback scenes, the Titans (particularly Wonder Girl) speak in jargon characteristic of the 1960s, which is when the original Teen Titans comic book series was published. One of the hallmarks of the title was that the characters were perpetually using phrases such as "Fab", "Ginchy", and "Daddy-O". Due to the standards of time-compression in the DC Universe, the Titans would not have even been born, much less active during the "in-universe" 1960s, making their flashback dialogue from this issue seem anachronistic.
