The New Teen Titans Vs. Magneto



This is a scene that comic fans once might have had a chance to actually see.  After the success of  X-Men and the New Teen Titans, DC and Marvel were looking forward to future crossovers.  The first was to be JLA/Avengers and then another X-Men/Titans outing, this time illustrated by George Perez.  The JLA/Avengers project famously fell apart, and the next X-Men/Titans tale never got off the ground at all.  I imagine that Magneto would be part of the story, as the X-Men's arch foe was left out of the first outing.  DC and Marvel finally got their act together and gave us JLA/Avengers for real many years later, but The X-Men/Titans revisit is a true lost issue.

What a classic combo! It feels like an eighties mash-up team-up brought back to life.

if I remember correctly, Perez was supposed to the the Teen Titans/X-men crossover after the first JLA/Avengers. when that fell apart and he left, they gave the X/Titans to Simonson to illustrate.

at least I've read that somewhere.

great cover. I miss these Titans.

The villains for the second X-MEN/TEEN TITANS were supposed to be Brother Blood and the Hellfire Club, not Magneto.

Also, Walt Simonson did the art for the first X-MEN/TITANS. Perez was never scheduled to be the artist for the first book, only the second.

@David McRobie. I hear ya, cuz I really miss comics of the 1980s era ('79-'88). I seemed like a magical time for both major companies, and things have been downhill ever since. I believe Independent companies have declined as well.

After reading DC Vs. Marvel and the Access sequels that followed it - I'm pretty much decided that I don't want to see a current or modern crossover between The Big two.

What I want to see is the Classic line-ups. For one fan it might be the original, founding members. For me it would be either that, or, for The Avengers, the late '70's line-up. There is only one line-up for the JLA and that is the Magnificent Seven. I could go with either the original five or the new diverse X-Men. My favorite Titans line-up is the classic New Teen Titans line-up pre-Nightwing.

They say everything you read, hear or watch when you are thirteen years old stays with you as the BEST. When I was thirteen, I discovered the JLA that was written by Gerry Conway. It was the Enter the Mircocosm sage, with Batman, Atom, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Elongated Man, and I think the Flash (the second stringers!). To me, the JLA will always be the "second stringers", since I enjoyed Conways' use of them so much. However, the "Detroit" League was flat out disaster. But then again, I wasn't thirteen anymore when I read them. I'm sure there is a fan in her late thirties who discovered the Detroit JLA when she was thirteen and thinks that was the BEST incarnation of the League!!!
