The surprising HBO Max Romance of the Titans arrives in the comics
An Official Preview of DC’s Titans United # 3 delivers his take on one of the most surprising romances in HBO Max’s Titans series.
One of the most surprising romances of the HBO Max live-action DC TV series Titans makes its way into the comic book world in the third issue of DC Comics’ United Titans.
In the recently completed third season of Titans, Superboy (Joshua Orpin) begins a relationship with none other than Starfire’s sister, Komand’r, better known as Blackfire (Damaris Lewis). This unexpected connection is echoed in an official preview for United Titans # 3, which is set to hit comic book stores this Tuesday, November 9.
United Titans is a seven-part limited series set in the DC comic book universe, but also serves as a companion to HBO Max Titans, bringing certain elements of the screen back to the page. Written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Jose Luis and Jonas Trindade, United Titans # 3 features a main cover by Jamal Campbell, as well as a cover variation by Kael Ngu.
In the preview provided by DC, Superboy was held up by someone he didn’t recognize at first, but quickly (and with some pretty big clues) deduced that it was Blackfire. “I prefer Komand’r … But I forgive you, just this once,” Blackfire said. “You are intriguing, me little Kryptonian.”
Blackfire then kisses Superboy, who is surprised by the action. Nonetheless, Superboy states that he is not a Kryptonian – although Blackfire infers that he is not exactly human either. When the Tamaranean asks if Superboy is the “best of both worlds”, Superboy replies: No … Worst.
As with the rest of the issue, the full synopsis for United Titans # 3 explains that while an off Superboy gets to know Blackfire, “Raven, Red Hood, and Donna Troy are on the trail of cold-hearted slayer Lady Vic.” Meanwhile, there’s Best Boy, who wants nothing more than to “enjoy his milkshake in peace”.
