Very few superhero groups in DC have achieved the status and attracted as many “A-List” characters as the Teen Titans. Just one quick glimpse at the roster could leave anyone in awe and disbelief as to how impressive it is.
- Beast Boy
- Blue Beetle
I’ve often found myself sitting back and wondering who is the most powerful member of the Teen Titans. I mean, with so many superheroes on the roster, which member could single-handily change the course of any battle simply with their presence. To ease my mind, tension, and the stress this thought brought me, I sat down one night and created a list of who I thought was the most powerful. If you’ll permit me a moment, I’d like to share it with you.
Here are the most powerful members of the Teen Titans.
List of the strongest Teen Titans
On a scale based on sheer power, Arsenal doesn’t even come close to the others on this list. In fact, he’s as powerless as they come. So, why then is he here?
Arsenal is on this list because he’s as masterful with a bow and arrow as Elton John is with a piano. Arsenal has shown that with practice and patience, anyone is capable of great feats. For example, he’s so proficient in archery that he has shot droplets of water dripping from a faucet.
While Arsenal doesn’t possess any inherent powers that make him powerful, his ability with a bow and arrow could be considered a power. Under this logic, he cracks this top 10…barely.
Similar to Arsenal, Nightwing doesn’t possess any inherent powers. Instead, he has trained to become the best version of himself and that version cracks this top 10 most powerful members of the Teen Titans list.
Nightwing was trained by Batman. That should be enough to convince anyone of his worthiness. If, however, it isn’t, remember this. Under Batman, Nightwing became a world-class detective, one of the best fighters in DC, a phenomenal leader, and someone capable of stepping in as Batman should the need ever arise…and all that is in addition to his naturally acrobatic abilities.
Nightwing is the leader of the Teen Titans and rightfully so. He’s the voice of reason, the guiding light when there isn’t one, the one that his fellow members look up to, and the one entrusted with making the most difficult of decisions.
8. Wonder Girl
Donna Troy, like Wonder Woman, is an Amazonian who possesses incredible speed, endurance, durability, and strength. She can fly, manipulate energy, and control the animals around her. Donna’s powers are so advanced that she is capable of standing tall against Wonder Woman…something she has done in the past.
No different than most Amazonians, Donna Troy underwent a rigorous training program that taught her armed and unarmed combat. She possesses the ability to heal quickly, carries the Lasso of Persuasion, can perfectly mimic any voice she hears, and if she absolutely needs it, has an indestructible sword and shield at her disposal.
7. Miss Martian
When you’re the female equivalent to one of DC’s most powerful characters, you’re bound to appear on any top 10 most powerful members of the Teen Titans list.
Like Martian Manhunter, Miss Martian is immensely powerful. Miss Martian can shapeshift, turn herself invisible, can phase through objects, has superhuman strength, speed, durability, and stamina. In addition, she possesses regenerative powers, can fly, is able to use telepathy, has enhanced senses, can read and manipulate minds, create new memories, and cast illusions. Finally, Miss Martian possesses telekinesis…a power that she uses to project blasts, grip objects, choke her opponents, and create shields.
As a result of her incredible power level and if she ever chose to, Miss Martian could cripple almost anyone in the DC Universe.
6. Blue Beetle
Blue Beetle would easily rank higher on this list if not for Jamie’s unwillingness to give up control to the Scarab. Even at a percentage of his power, Blue Beetle is a force to be reckoned with.
The Scarab that gives Jamie his power grafted itself onto his spine. Although it’s always there, it typically surfaces when it senses Jamie is in danger. When this happens, it generates and encases Jamie in a high-tech suit of armor. With the armor around him, the Scarab is able to mold itself into almost anything. Most commonly, it molds itself into swords, shields, energy cannons, and other weapons capable of mass destruction. The Scarab is also able to discharge magic-neutralizing energy from Jamie’s hands, force extra-dimensional objects to appear, it grants flight, and if the situation calls for it, transforms itself and Jamie into Infiltrator Mode. When in this mode, the suits grows taller, adds bulk, and fights without any sort of conscious input from Jamie.
When your the cloned offspring of Lex Luthor and Superman, you’re easily part of this top 10 most powerful members of the Teen Titans list.
After Doomsday and Superman shocked the world in 1993 a void was left in all of humanity. That void was soon filled by Project Cadmus when, unbeknownst to anyone, the genetic information of Lex Luthor was combined with that of Superman. The creation, Kon-El was aged to his mid-teens and given all the biological information required by someone of that age group. Shortly thereafter, the new creation embarked on a world tour to establish his own identity.
Superboy, through what’s known as Tactile Telekinesis, possesses most of the well-known and not so well-known Superman powers. Some of these include invulnerability, telepathy, heat vision, x-ray vision, telescopic vision, flight, freeze breath, wind breath, super strength, and super speed.
Starfire is an alien from the planet Tamaran. She is the daughter of the Royal Family of Tamaran and as such, royalty. Although she was second in line to assume the throne, through a series of events her older sister was deemed unfit to rule. As such, Starfire was hailed as the next Queen of Tamaran. This, however, wasn’t meant to be.
After her sister led the sworn enemy of Tamaran inside the walls, Tamaran fell and Starfire was ordered to be executed. What nobody foresaw was that the Psions were about to invade and take captive the two sisters. While in captivity, Starfire was experimented on and given a set of completely new powers.
Starfire is very powerful. She possesses superhuman strength, speed, durability, agility, reflexes, stamina, and is nearly invulnerable. She is also able to fly, is long-lived, has immunity to cold and heat, can survive in space, is able to manipulate ultraviolet energy, absorb and project energy, and emit supernova-type energy.
3. Kid Flash
I’ll be honest. I had a very tough time placing Kid Flash ahead of Starfire as I feel that neither is more powerful than the other. To make this decision, I based it on what they could do with their power and at the end of the day, I believe Kid Flash can do more with his than Starfire can do with hers.
Kid Flash is the fastest superhero in comics. As with the many other DC Speedsters, he has the ability to tap into the Speed Force and use it to do things very quickly. Where he differs from all the other Speedsters is that he doesn’t just tap into the Speed Force, he becomes one with it. After becoming one with the Speed Force he is granted super speed, can read and process material as quickly as he runs, can phase through objects, can time travel, can dimensionally travel, has heightened senses, can give and take speed away, possesses electrokinesis, is able to manipulate time, and create vortexes.
If that doesn’t convince you, understand that Kid Flash is more powerful than The Flash and actually took over for his mentor after Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Now we’re talking power. Of all the most powerful members of the Teen Titans, only one is more powerful than Tempest…and we’ll get to her.
But before we do…
Tempest is power defined. Aside from the fact that he possesses superhuman strength, stamina, and speed, utilizes hydrokinesis and is amphibious, he can also see long distances underwater and in the dark on land, can instantly freeze and heat almost anything, is able to astrally project, teleport, and trans dimensionally travel.
None of that, however, comes close to his abilities with Magic. Tempest has purple eyes and purple eyes mean that he can access Atlantean Magic…some of the most powerful magic in existence.
It’s well documented that Raven isn’t just the most powerful character in the Teen Titans but she’s also one of the most powerful in DC. Raven inherited her power from her father, Trigon. Trigon, for reference, is one of the most powerful beings in comics. By the time he was a teenager, he had enslaved millions, destroyed planets, and asserted himself as a force to be reckoned with.
Raven is a wielder of magic. As a wielder of magic, she controls shadows that attack her enemies, can heal wounds and reduce the recovery time of said wounds. Raven houses an entire world within her and due to this is able to teleport, use telepathy and telekinesis, astrally project, manipulate the emotions of those around her, fly, see into the future, cause hallucinations, has extensive knowledge of the supernatural, and can manipulate time and space.
Raven is so powerful that she could take on the entirety of the Teen Titans at once and walk away as the victor.
And that’s it. The most powerful members of the Teen Titans. What do you think? Who would make your powerful members of the Teen Titans list?
