Teen Titans Key Comics List Part 10

Here we are with Teen Titans key comics Part 10. Bunch of Copper Age minor key issues and sleepers in this one. Some first appearances as well. Will probably be hard to find any CGC copies, so don't expect too many. 

One more part to this key issue series after this one. If you missed Part 9, just click the link. If you're all good to go, enjoy Part 10.

First appearance of Kole

New Teen Titans #9 sees the first appearance of Kole, and this superheroine would become a supporting character within the Teen Titans as well as a member. She was captured by Thia and became her slave before the Teen Titans destroyed the goddess and freed Kole. She is close friends with Jericho and lived with him and her mom for quite some time. 

Kole has the power to spin crystal into independent masses. She often encases others in them to immobilize them. This comic was published June, 1985. 

eBay - A few unslabbed copies present, but no CGC at the moment which isn't too surprising.

mycomicshop - VF and FN copy are in stock. Both are unslabbed and the only two so far.

NewKadia - Five copies in stock with the highest being a NM+ followed by a NM. Lowest grade in stock is a VF.

Kole joins team
Origin of Kole

Kole joins the Teen Titans in this issue, and the Teen Titans learn the origin of how Kole gains her powers. Apparently, she was also experimented on by her scientist father, Abel Weathers, who was seeking a way to evolve humans to survive an inevitable nuclear war. Instead, Kole Weathers gained superpowers instead. 

Kole also moves in with Adeline Wilson and Jericho in this issue. This comic was published July, 1985. 

eBay - One CGC 9.8 Signature Series signed by Rich Buckler available. Unslabbed copies are present also.

mycomicshop - Only two unslabbed copies here at the moment. Highest is a VF and the other is a VG.

NewKadia - Seven copies in stock at the moment. Top grade is a NM+.

First appearance of Jinx

The introduction of another Teen Titan baddie, Jinx is a sorcerer who is able to control or manipulate the elements. She joined the Fearsome Five and become a formidable adversary of the Teen Titans. 

Jinx was created by Marv Wolfman and Chuck Patton, and the first appearance of Jinx was published August, 1985.

eBay - Pretty limited selection for even unslabbed copies at the moment. No CGC as of yet.

mycomicshop - Very Fine and a FINE copy in stock so far, but that's it.

ComicLink - Surprised that there's a CGC copy here. It's a 9.8 regular Universal.

NewKadia - Three copies here. Highest copy is low NM.

Robin (Jason Todd) joins team

Robin rejoins the Teen Titans, but it's not Dick Grayson. This time it's Jason Todd, the Robin that readers during the era didn't like all that much. He would not be a long-term member as he does die at the Joker's hand in the A Death In A Family storyline in Batman comics. 

Jason Todd would be revived later and become The Red Hood. Minor key issue, but if you're a fan of Jason Todd and hunting down key issues pertaining to him, this is one. This comic was published May, 1986.

eBay - Very limited selection for this comic on the mighty eBay at the time of this writing. No CGC and only a handful of unslabbed copies.

NewKadia - One NM copy here. Only one and the picture they have up for this comic is the wrong one.

New origin Wonder Girl
First issue with new title change
Once again Wonder Girl gets another origin, but in this issue, she is hunted down by a woman who reveals that everything Donna believed about her life was actually a carefully constructed fabrication. The woman ends up being the Goddess Phoebe and lifts the haze of false memories from Donna Troy's mind. 

This is actually part one to a five part story arc. Within the story arc Donna Troy discovers that she was raised by Titans of myth. Her retcon was written because of the Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series and Donna's ties to the Amazons were severed in her new origin. 

The Teen Titans title also gets changed to The New Titans beginning with this issue and was published December, 1988.

eBay - Not a great selection for this issue also. Most are in comic lots but they are pretty cheap. As expected no CGC at the time of this writing.

mycomicshop - VF copy and FN copy are the only two available here so far. No CGC yet.

NewKadia - NM copy in stock here. Two other copies also available, both high grade.

Wonder Girl becomes Troia

After Donna's retconned origin, she assumes the codename Troia in this issue, and she also gets a new make over and look. This comic issue ends the five part story arc that started with issue number 50. It is a definite sleeper for now and pretty affordable for sure. June, 1989 was when this comic was published.

eBay - A few unslabbed options here, but most are in comic lots. No CGC also.

mycomicshop - Only a VF and VG located at the time of this writing. Both copies are in stock and not on consignment however.

NewKadia - Four copies of this issue in stock. The highest is a NM copy.

Okay one more part to this Teen Titans key comics list and that will be all. As you can see, most of these are minor keys and or sleepers at the moment. PART 11 is already ready so just click the link below to continue on.
