I started writing because of my love for comics, so it's great fun to realize that so many of my characters have been turned into movies, TV, toys and animation. Fact is, Ive been told that Ive created more characters that have been adapted into movies, TV and animation than any other comics writer with the exception of Stan Lee.
The New Teen Titans, which I co-created with artist George Prez back in 1980, has been a major hit on the Cartoon Network for five seasons. Although different from our comic, aimed more at the younger crowd than the high school/college age audience we were aiming at, it still features our characters, Starfire, Cyborg and Raven as well as Titans greats such as Robin and Changeling. I, for one, could not be more proud.
Many of our villains appear in the series, as well, from Trigon to Slade Wilson - Deathstroke The Terminator, The Hive, Mammoth, Gizmo, Thunder and Lightning and many, many more. And speaking of the music, the show has one of the best cartoon theme songs in years, written and performed by singer-song-writers, Puffy AmiYumi.
