If a character appeared in Young Justice, that interpretation is likely my favorite (with a few small exceptions; Zatanna, Riddler, Freeze). If not from Young Justice, go Arkham-verse. If not Arkham-verse, go DCAU.

@deathstroke19: I was furious when it took the place of YJ too, but then it turned out hilarious... On the other hand I would most definitely want YJ back with the cost of letting TTG go. However that's not what DC plans to do, so, what can I do? :/

#25 Posted by Deathstroke19 (3799 posts) - - Show Bio

@hastalavista: I was talking more about the original Teen Titans but YJ was still way better then that new teen titans crap.

A large majority of the DCAU characters, plus Young Justice and GL TAS

@deathstroke19: I see. I only watched the first season of the original Teen Titans.

Nightwing (DCAU): His appearance in the animated show was the reason why I started picking up comic books.

Static (DCAU): This show was awesome and I loved watching him grow as a hero. His first meeting with John Stewart is probably my favorite episode from that series.

Terry McGinnis (DCAU): I like this guy almost as much as I like Bruce.

Batman (DCAU): He was so OP in JL/JLU that it was hard not to root for him.

I'm going to add Slade from Arrow as my favorite non comic version of him.

Jason Todd/Robin/Red Hood (If Mark Hamil and Kevin Conroy have made iconic voices, than Jensen Ackles has done the same for this character)
Flash (Justice League...Michael Rosenbaum did a great job bringing Flash to life)
Superman - Smallville (Tom Welling) Louis & Clark (Dean Cain)
