The new Teen Titans is great.... they just need to kill off Skitter ^_^

So, with the New 52 (which I love, btw), obviously some past events are still canon while others have been removed.
Based on what I've read, I'm curious ... which incarnation of the Teen Titans are we on now? The 1st or 2nd? There seems to be some conflicting evidence...
Exhibit A) In TT#4, Red Robin announces the name of the team as if it is something he just came up with. His teammate, Bunker, also reacts as if it is a name he's never heard before...
RedRobin: "I was thinking something like... Teen Titans."
Bunker: "It's sexy. Alliterative. I like it."
Exhibit B) In RHATO#6 we see a flashback in which Nightwing is leading Starfire and Arsenal in battle. Arsenal refers to Nightwing as "boss." Could this possibly be any scenario other than a previous incarnation of the Teen Titans??
Thanks in advance for all info and/or theories!!
yea, that did help. thanks!
the more I dig in to this the more I realize that, like it or not, the New 52 or whatever it's called basically means all bets are off. in other words, the only things that definitely happened are what new issues says happened. I mean, if I'm not mistaken, Superboy and WonderGirl are like BRAND NEW characters in the New 52. So obviously that renders a LOT of backstory involving Time Drake non-canon. right?
I'm sure basic elements still exist (Jason was the 2nd Robin, Joker killed him, Talia found him and used the pit to revive him, he trained, he pissed off the Bat family for a bit, then came to his senses and here we are). But beyond that, it's all up to the new writers which is why things like the flashbacks in RHATO are so important.
I'll keep poking around and hopefully these questions don't get too annoying. but I think I am finally on the road to clarity!
OK, so, I just devoured a bunch of old Jason Todd stories.
It seems like the last JT sighting before RHATO was at the end of Battle for the Cowl, no?
At the conclusion of that arc, he is still a raving psychopath messing with (and in some cases trying to end) the lives of the bat family. So how does he go from that to the reasonably level-headed character in RHATO? Plus, in issue #8 he is like pals with Tim Drake. Where as their previous encounter (in Battle for the Cowl) was Jason stabbing Tim with a 'rang and leaving him for dead.
Can anyone shed some light on these apparently missing links?
Been a long-time off-and-on follower of Tim Drake and now I've really started to get in to Jason Todd via the RHATO book. I just finished the latest issue and I have 2 possibly simple, perhaps n00bish questions ...
1. I just assumed Jason custom built his armored under-suit. The one with the red bat logo on it. But it appears in issue #6 that Kori gives him the suit having belonged to someone else (Dick?) previously? Has that suit actually been worn by someone before? If so, who? If not, where did it come from?
2a. I was thinking of going back and reading some of the older Jason stories. Do we know which ones have been confirmed as canon in the new continuity?
2b. I know Arsenal used to be Speedy and was in the Teen Titans with Dick, but where does he know Jason from? It seems like they are already long-time friends by the time Jason breaks Roy out of that prison camp.
Thanks in advance for any helpful information!!
