OK, now that I've got my breath back from reading Titans #23
- jeez, did Roy drop a bag of flaming dog poop on Didio's front porch or something? - I've remembered I recently came across Teen Titans #53, which is both the origin issue and the breakup issue. (Ironically, it's also the first issue of OTT I ever bought, back in the day.)
It has Guardian and Bumblebee minding the store at OTT HQ, and reading in a big record book of the Titans' first adventure, the one reworked in Year One: the heroes going rogue, the sidekicks joining forces, trading off sidekick/hero matchups, breaking the evil alien influence etc. Roy was a rough fit even then, but the standoffishness was on Roy's
side, according to this:
And it was a much-grown Roy who got to do the honors of disbanding the original Titans.( Here's how he felt about them all in the end. )
I just don't even know what to make of Titans #23, after rereading this issue.
