It was seriously my favorite part

So that girl is obviously the new Titan that was in the Preview page way back when. I think she's been talked about in Wonder Girl's one-shot coming up in January and I think her name is Solstice. Which makes sense if she knows Cassie's mom. So I'm excited. :)

Yay! Comics need more people from India. *nods*

The only one I can think of off the top of my head was that shapeshifting person that Cass Cain met some time back.

I only know of Chimera, the Indian-American girl who was a member of the Team Titans prior to the teams dissolution in Zero Hour. (She should still be around she wasn't from the future like the Teamers)

Eh, Geoff Johns'll kill her in his next big crossover and she'll be replaced by some blonde American girl or something.

Remember a few years ago when DC put out those annuals that introduced a gaggle of Supes from all over the world? I think they're all dead...Mmm. Yeah.

Plus the woman from Secret Six, she's South Asian, too. She's got an interesting power, can make earthquakes, iirc.

Oh and agreed! And you know, it would be nice for Vic to have some spotlight/maybe even a love interest. Most stories I've read of Teen Titans that have Vic in them often have him as a team-player, but not at the forefront of the stories.

Aruna Shende, that was her name. She was in Batgirl Annual 1 back in 2000, apparently. Though I haven't read an appearence by her and have only seen her in the DC Comics Encyclopedia.

There was also that one girl who was briefly in the Justice League, whose name, naturally, I can't remember. She showed up around the JLI/JLE period, if I remember correctly.

"If you love archeology it can hardly be called work"? Hah, pretty sure it's looong periods of mind-numbing tedium even if you love archeology, it's just worth it :)

...except in the DC universe, where one false move on a dig and you've dug up an ancient evil from beyond time, gained tremendous powers, or both.

Either way, there should be hazard pay involved.

I hope didio does go that direction but who I'm I kidding. The teen titans have not had a death in awhile.

Kid Devil died just a little over a year ago.

And Kid Eternity was kidnapped from the team by Calculator and killed and I don't think any of them have even noticed yet.

Technically Kid Eternity's been dead all along anyway... so bringing him back wouldn't be difficult.

"I don't even think the Titans know he was kidnapped I think they assume he just left."

Which is really just silly but probably how it'll be spun in Teen Titans. You'd think the team would worry about his vanishing since he warned Wondergirl about how his accompaniment could mean crazy magical attacks. Oh well I suppose.

In Batgirl, Calculator mentioned trying to keep Kid Eternity's mind going after his body gave out.

Re. Solstice - the name 'Kiran' means 'rays of sunlight' in Hindi. :)

Huh. This looks cool. Although the nitpicky part in me is wondering if the ruins of Mohenjo-Daro should have 'rakshasas' from 'Hindu lore', seeing how it was pretty much a pre-Hindu civilization... Whatever, comic books.

That bothered me too, but then I decided it's just an excuse for them to fight shapechanging demons. But does it seem weird to anyone else that an Indian character would be named after a European festival?

Literally, its Greek for the sun standing still. Her civilian name means rays of sunlight, so sounds like she'll have light powers.

I don't particularly mind, Solstice is not exclusively 'European' - it's a geographical event, marked in most cultures in the world (including Hindu, which Kiran appears to be). TBH, I'd rather have a name like 'Solstice' than something oh-so-exotic.

But the word itself, if it's Greek, is a European one.

But the word itself, if it's Greek, is a European one.

Which is quite popular in the present-day Indian subcontinent, given its colonial history. I'm struggling to think of an exact equivalent of the word 'solstice' in Sanskrit - there probably isn't any, there are words for summer solstice and winter solstice instead, which translate into 'southern movement of the sun' and 'northern movement of the sun' (not that I'm the world's greatest translator). Either way, it's not an issue IMHO. I'd be more interested in seeing how she is portrayed once her character is fleshed out.
