First appearance: New Titans #73 in 1991.

In the comics, Red Star started liking Pantha. Later they formed a family and left the Teen Titans together with Baby Wildebeest.
#19 Red Star
First appearance: Teen Titans #18 in 1968.
Best Feat: Manages to hurt Superboy-Prime
Before we dive in, Do you know that Red Star was officially the first Russian Superhero?
His first alias was Starfire but since there was a Teen Titan named Starfire on the team already, He changed his name to Red Star.
Pretty inconvenient if you ask me.
Leonid Kovar was granted unknown mutated alien energy powers in an explosion when he was investigating a spaceship with his father Konstantin in the Yenisei River.
He forms a cute little family with Pantha and Baby Wildebeest after he quit being a Titan. Later, Superboy-Prime murders them in front of Red Star who manages to survive with a lot of injuries.
Years after this tragic incident, The Teen Titans fight with Superboy-Prime’s Legion of Doom, and Red Star manages to hurt Superboy-Prime for killing his family. But when Prime gets the upper hand in the battle, The Titans bail their old friend out.

Amon Tomaz was enslaved as a kid and was tortured but the anti-hero, Black Adam saved him by sharing a portion of his power. Whenever he would call out to Black Adam’s name, Tomaz would transform into the Hero – Osiris, with the powers of the Marvel Family.
Osiris carries out his duties as a hero for some time then decides to join the Titans. Because of his connections to Black Adam, Captain Marvel Jr. is hesitant at first but Osiris gains his trust. He agrees but tells him to convince the world of his good intentions.
While fighting with the Suicide Squad, Osiris loses control and out of anger, tears a persuader in half, killing him in the process. Later, Tomaz feels guilty and leaves the team to get rid of his powers.

Lilith, aka Omen, has also saved Raven by purifying her from evil in the Terror of Trigon storyline. In this comic, Lilith was possessed by Azar and managed to gather souls from Azarath for Raven’s rescue.
When this character joined the Teen Titans, she cast a spell to keep her identity a secret and took on the name Omen. There have been many versions of Lilith/Omen in the DC universe and even though her powers seem somewhat similar to Raven’s, she is a different character altogether.

Over his long run in the comics, Dick accomplished many feats and even took over as Batman in Bruce’s absence along with Damain’s Robin. He has fought many villains like Deathstroke, KGBeast, The Talon, and Hush.
Nightwing’s mental prowess and durability are something that rivals Batman’s. Some of his best work includes standing back in a fight after being tortured, fighting through the Fear-Toxin, and breaking free of a mental prison.
First Appearance: Teen Titans Special #1 in 2018.
Best Feat: Frees fellow Djinns from their rings and thereby revoking people’s ability to control them.
Djinn is an unnamed sila, a female Djinn, and has been introduced quite recently in the DC universe.
She is 4000 years old and due to her past, she is in hiding from her Brother Elias, revealed to be the devil himself who has forced her to do unforgivable things, things which she can never recover from.
Right now, She uses her power to atone for the horrible things she had done but sadly we do not see the full extent of her powers, as she does not want to be found by her brother.
While fighting with Brother Blood, he senses old-world power within her and tries to enslave her but Djinn tells him that he might be strong, but her powers are something he could never dream of.
Let’s hope that she comes back and reveals the true nature of her ‘Old-Worldly’ powers in the future.
First appearance: The Adventures of Superman #500 in 1993.
Best Feat: After developing Kryptonian Powers, Connor not only fought an overpowered Superboy-Prime but also inflicted damage on him, which many heroes could never do.
Superboy has been a part of Teen Titans, Young Justice, Legion of Super-Heroes, Supermen of America, White Lantern Corps, Superman family, The Ravers, and Project Cadmus. He has also fought cloned Kryptonians alongside Superman and Supergirl. This makes him one of the most experienced members of the Titans.
Connor is an artificially, genetically engineered Human/Kryptonian clone made with the DNA of Lex Luthor and Superman.
He initially struggled after learning about his true identity and being a clone he is confused about whether he has a soul or not. Later Raven shows his steadily growing young soul within him.

First Appearance: Batman #655 in 2006 As Damian Wayne, Batman #657 in 2006 as Robin.
Best Feat: Gives the Joker a taste of his own medicine by beating him repeatedly with a Crowbar.
Remember the time when Jason Todd was beaten repeatedly by the Joker with a crowbar in Batman: Death in the Family? It was quite gruesome to read or watch.
In Batman and Robin #14, we see Damian threatening Joker and telling him that he wouldn’t think twice before inflicting severe brain damage and then proceeds to wallop him with a crowbar.
However short-lived this moment was, it was satisfying because Damian does something that the fans wanted to do themselves.
Being a biological son of Batman, Damian is not very likable due to his shrewd and proud attitude but he has done some pretty shocking damage to supervillains.
He has inflicted pain on Deathstroke, defeated a Man-Bat at the age of 10, defeated Talia Al Ghul, took Tim Drake head-on, and defeated Jason Todd in psychological warfare.
In Justice League vs Teen Titans, Damian Wayne makes a plan to overpower Trigon-possessed Superman and succeeds in the process.
First appearance: DC Comics Presents #26 in 1980.
Best Feat: One of his greatest feats would be defeating Dr. Polaris by channelling electricity through his body, creating his own electromagnetic field, and directing it toward him which he taunts by saying he learned it in Kindergarten.
Keep in mind that Cyborg was originally a member of the Teen Titans. After DC’s reboot in 2011, Vic became a founding member of The Justice League.
Vic has vaporized parademons and stunned Shazam using his powerful White Noise Canon. He has restrained Miss Martian and hurt Wrath, the most powerful among Trigon’s children.
Cyborg’s greatest power yet is fusing with the Mother Box. Being capable to control any form of technology, human or alien, The Mother Box grants him access to any dimension in the multiverse.
First appearance: DC Comics Presents #26 in 1980.
Best Feat: Defeated Brainiac 8, Eskaton demons, and a Black Lantern. Starfire held her own in a fight with Wonder Woman.
Starfire is an underrated character. Many have no idea about her powers. She was the only one who could subdue Raven when she was losing control.
Her Star-bolts are hotter than many suns, and the comics define her once as “A walking Solar Flare and a Princess with the power of the sun raging through her.”
Did you know that Koriand’r has absorbed energy from several Kryptonians to weaken them?
Once, She takes part in a tournament in Amazon and wins it. Even Hippolyta acknowledges her strength and combat skills.
If the Queen of Amazons has recognized her powers, Who are we to say otherwise?
First appearance: DC Comics Presents #26 in 1980.
Best Feat: Defeated one of the most powerful super-villains in the DC Universe: The Demon Trigon, multiple times.
If you follow the DC universe, you will understand why Raven is ranked 1 on this list.
Being the Half-Demon Daughter of Trigon, Raven is constantly trying to suppress her powers except for a few cases where she loses control.
When the Justice League is unable to overpower Trigon’s huge titan form, Rachel manages to trap the demon in a shard and wears it on her forehead.
Her Soul-Self is so scary that villains flee or surrender when she takes this form.
After learning to control her powers and getting rid of Trigon’s influence, Raven in her white form learns to tap into her raw power without being scared of losing control.
With that, We have listed and ranked the top 20 Teen Titans of the DC universe with their best feats from the comics.
