The group Teen Titans unofficially made their first appearance in The Brave and the Bold #54 (July 1964) as a young Justice League featuring Robin, Kid Flash and Aqualad. Sidekicks of more famous adult superheroes, the group made its first official appearance under the name of "Teen Titans" in The Brave and the Bold #60, joined by Wonder Girl and eventually by Speedy. The team uses Titans' Tower as their base in New York City. Their regular comic series, Teen Titans, went on hiatus, returning as The New Teen Titans. From issue #50, the series took the name The New Titans without the "Teen" prefix, as the characters were no longer teenagers. Some members work with the team known as "Titans West". A short-lived spin-off comic was Team Titans. DC now publishes both Titans and Teen Titans (featuring the "Young Justice" and other characters) as related titles.
