Default Kyle in TITANS?!?

He was a member of that weird 90's era Team Titans along with Damage, Supergirl/Matrix, and Impulse... and he was pretty good friends with Roy Harper and dated Donna Troy.

Should he show up?

I honestly think it'd be more entertaining than everything else going on in the GL titles, including the JL book.

Well, I'd probably pick it up if he did. I read Titans Hunt, but wasn't grabbed enough to pick up the Rebirth Titans title.

I think he kind of fit with those characters in the 90s. Maybe it was due to his age seeming to be similar to the original Titans ages. To me it made him kind of a peer of theirs, even if he didn't have the experience they had at that point.

Now? These aren't even the same characters or the same history. I don't think it would work now.

^This is all true, but the same argument could be made against the book even existing. After all, Dick and Roy are in Titans and they are pretty experienced and world-weary.

Part of me just wants all those 90's characters to return and start another original team honestly. Impulse, Damage, Superboy [the clone], Kyle, etc...

Kyle in the Titans or another team like the Challengers From Beyond would interest me more at this point than Kyle being used as a plot device in GL titles with the new ring gimmick still sticking around. "Another new ring you say?!?" God knows we haven't seen that in like... what, two months?

He doesn't seem to be doing anything better at the moment, so I don't see him joining up with them as a bad idea. It would honestly probably help him more than sticking around the Green Lantern books. Meaning that I think he'd have more opportunities to be a worthwhile character that gets decent characterization and development.

I think that's an excellent idea.

Go over to CBR and start a thread that proposes that idea. Maybe someone at DC will see it. Having him in Titans as a Green Lantern is much better than having him in Hal's comic as something else.

At the beginning of the new52 I proposed the idea of Kyle and Carol when the black and white cover of New Guardians #1 was released on here and Geoff's forums. They just need to give a brother a job already.

I kinda wish they'd bring the clone Superboy back and throw him in Titans.

I proposed there a year ago that they go to twice-monthly publishing, that they bring the real JSA from 1951 to the present as fish out of water, and that they publish a Flash team title. All three suggestions got approved. I think they're also going to launch the Charlton team title that I proposed. So stuff over there does get seen, and if it's good then DC will actually do it.

At this point putting him in the Titans is the best thing to do with Kyle, and I bet if you'd make a good case they'd do it.

For me, it's Donna and Roy having ties to Kyle pre New52/Rebirth and him really just melding with that group of in between heroes that aren't Teen Titans but they're not League either. Now that Wally is there I REALLY wanna see Kyle show up. Maybe his White Lantern powers let him remember bits of the universe before it was altered?

Either way, if Donna isn't already getting close to one of the boys Kyle needs to return to Earth. The main draw for me was his relationships with other legacy heroes.

I wouldn't get into a lot of details with it, and give people details to quibble about. Just go over there and start the thread, and say that with Wally coming back and Donna there, Kyle as a GL in Titans makes perfect sense.

But if DC uses your idea, don't expect them to thank you for it. Just do it because it's what you want to see. They haven't thanked me, even though they've already made a fortune from twice-monthly publishing. Pretty classless, IMO.

While you're at it, why don't you propose on CBR that DC do this too? I bet they'd do it.

He could show up for an arc, but not as a full-time member. WL Kyle is still older and wiser in the post-Rebirth continuity, so he doesn't really fit with youngsters like he did in the 90s. I like the idea of DC using him as an ace in the hole for the GLC, JL, or any other teams facing down a powerful threat.

Kyle is still the youngest of the Four Musketeers [Hal, Kyle, John, and Guy] so I don't think his age would be a problem. And didn't Starfire just go from being super hot and looking to be in her 20's back to being a 'teen' Titan? With Kyle's level of power, if the guy ever got to go back home to Earth, maybe he'd realize a disturbance too.
