Mash-up any era of Teen Titans with ANYthing – a movie (Teen Titans in the Hangover), another comic book (the Teen Titans as the cast of Saga), a TV show (the Teen Titans as the cast from Saved by the Bell), a novel (Teen Titans in Pride and Prejudice), a video game (Teen Titans in Mortal Kombat), whatever you’d like! Go nuts!
