Note: At it’s core, redesigning super hero characters for fun is about imagining what you’d do if you were in charge of their character. Artist Charles Rouse-Rodriguez takes that one step further with this inspired new set of Teen Titans he would’ve liked to see in the New 52. Featuring both classic Titans and some new additions, these are six solid redesigns and an impressive team lineup! – Chris A.
Here’s what Charles had to say about the design:
So from left to right: Mal Duncan as The Guardian, Wally West The Flash, Dick Grayson as The Human Target, Karen Beecher as Queen Bee, Donna Troy as Lady Troy Celestial Amazon, and Garth as Aqualad. This is what I was thinking they could have gone with for the designs of the New 52 Titans but alas… Guardian’s look is more geared to what if Star Labs found some New Genesis tech and created his costume, Queen Bee (bumblebee) takes on a more mutated look as does Aqualad who I wanted to go in a totally different ways considering most water guys just get gills with green or blue skin. Dick I wanted to be more like his old colors as Robin and not bat-lite at all. Also when he was leading the titans he was always in disguise so i thought the Questions mask would allow him to change faces quickly. Donna I wanted to make more regal and taller then the others since I am a fan of the Amazons being taller than your average guy.
