A lot has been made of Starfire and Roy Harper's exchange in Scott Lobdell's Red Hood and the Outlaws
, but it's actually a different earlier exchange that may have larger reboot implications.
Like his Superboy #1 last week, Lobdell more than any other writer has aggressively left a ton of open questions in his first issue like, who is Essence, Ducra and the All Caste? What or who are the Untitled? What's with the Chicago dude in the hoodie tracking Kory?
But leaving the question of whether or not Lobdell, editors Bobbie Chase and Katie Kubert, co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee are all irredeemable sexist pigs aside for the moment, it does seem some version of Titans (Teen or otherwise) existed (part tense) and used to hang together.
Dick (Nightwing/Robin), Garth (Aqua Lad/Tempest), Vic (Cyborg), Gar (Beast Boy/Changeling) Lilith, Roy (Speedy/Arsenal) and Starfire are all plainly implied to have a history together, including a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Kory and Dick.
But Lobdell doesn't stop there. The gotta-be intentional non-mention of either Titans charter members Donna Troy or Wally West only exasperate fans' questions about their DCnU fates, and the mysterious Dustin (who?) reference in the same conversation might be one that dangles for a very long time.
