The latest installment of Titans season 3 paves the way for a brand new team leader, further suggesting Dick Grayson will become Batman.
Titans season 3 could be readying Donna Troy to take over leadership duties from Dick Grayson. Across the show’s 3 seasons thus far, Titans has featured different eras and incarnations of the titular superhero group, from the original lineup of Robin, Hawk, Dove, Wonder Girl and Aqualad to the current roster of Nightwing, Superboy, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and whoever happens to be following them around at the time. As the sole common thread throughout the years, Dick Grayson has consistently acted as the undisputed leader of Titans Tower, despite making a few very unpopular decisions along the way.
Though Dick’s Nightwing is the only OG Titan left standing in season 3, he’s about to be joined by another from that first generation – Wonder Girl. Donna died in rather unspectacular fashion during Titans season 2’s finale, before eventually cheating the Reaper in season 3’s “Souls,” courtesy of Hawk and Tim Drake. With the stench of death still in her hair, Donna makes a bee line for Gotham City to lend a hand against Scarecrow and Red Hood in “Troubled Water.” Her journey takes an unexpected detour when Lydia decides to test Wonder Girl’s resurrected muscles, but more than just giving Donna a pre-match warm-up, the sparring session foreshadows a brand new leader for the Titans.
