Earth-1A History

July

As an early teen and 'junior Justice Leaguer', Robin is joined by two other sidekicks (Aqualad and Kid Flash) to stop the menace of Mr. Twister in the small town of Hatton Corners.[4] Later, the three sidekicks join forces with Speedy and Wonder Girl in order to free their mentors in then JLA from the mind-control of an alien energy-being called the Antithesis. They defeat this foe and together the five teens decide to become a real team, calling themselves the Teen Titans.[5] Robin, by virtue of the tactical skills gleaned from Batman, is swiftly recognized as leader.[6] Bruce Wayne allowed them access to an empty silo, which the teens used as their first secret headquarters – the Titans Lair. The Titans Lair was located in a cave outside of Gotham City. The team expands over the next few years and they meet Mr. Jupiter (friend of Bruce Wayne and millionaire industrialist in his own right), who sets them up with a training facility and resources.[7]

Robin wasn't around for every Titans mission however, as he was splitting time with the team and with Batman as his sidekick.[8]

These adventures are recounted in The Brave and the Bold, #54 (July 1964) and then in the first official Teen Titan appearance under the name "Teen Titans" in Brave and the Bold, Vol. 1 #60 (July, 1965). After being featured in Showcase, #59 (December 1965), the Teen Titans were spun off into their own series with Teen Titans, Vol. 1 #1 (February, 1966) by Haney and artist Nick Cardy. The series was canceled with #43 (January–February 1973). The series resumed with issue #44 (November 1976).
  8. This is clear based on the fact that Robin was never present in DC Superheroes: The Filmation Adventures (1967). The real-world reason he wasn't a part of the team was because they didn't secure the rights to use Batman or his supporting cast until the following season.
