As of this point, Titans has largely stuck to the core group of characters from the classic run. We’ve gotten Robin/Nightwing, Starfire, Wonder Girl, Changeling and Raven. Even Hawk and Dove have shown up. In the post credit scene for the season finale, a potential Titans new member is teased. And this character shows the series might be falling in line with Young Justice to a degree.
Titans has largely avoided doing post-credit scenes to the point I didn’t even expect it after Dick Grayson. But with an extra three minutes in the credits, I figured it was worth checking out. Good thing I did.

While Trigon has lured Dick Grayson to his clutches, somewhere in Metropolis, a Cadmus lab had a problem. A young adult that was formerly in Cage 13 emerges in naked Terminator style.
If you missed that nod, there’s also a white dog in a cage with a red collar. The mystery figure comes to the cage and frees the dog, whose eyes glow red.
So it looks like Titans is going to also feature Connor Kent next season. That’s exciting as this should set up some sort of connection with Superman as well. Connor and Dick are best friends in Young Justice so I’m curious how Titans plays it.
In an interview with CBM, Titans showrunner Greg Walker said ‘It’s still brewing. What I can say is that we still want to take the same dimensionalized and psychologically grounded approach that we do with the other characters and apply that same pressure to Conner Kent and see what shakes out when you put a character like that through that test. You know, questions of identity, questions of powers, questions of your place in the universe. These are all questions that are interesting for any kind of Superman character, and are really interesting for Conner.’
What do you think of this reveal? Excited to see Superboy in Titans next season?
