10. Should Join: Kyle Rayner

Kyle Rayner is a part-time Titan in the comics — he has also been Donna Troy’s boyfriend in some arcs. As a Green Lantern, he wields immense power, making him an essential component in any fight. In the current comic’s run, Kyle has joined forces with the team again as a heavy-hitter, and he has brought with him all the charm that is missing with Dick Grayson being out of the picture.

One can imagine him being a direct rival for Dick on the show as he sweet-talks his way into the team’s good books. The biggest challenge with a character like Kyle will be rendering his powers effectively. The last time DC tried to bring a Green Lantern to the screens… didn’t end well.

9. Please Stay Away: Terry Long

If you’re reading this and wondering, ‘Terry who?’, count yourself lucky. Terry Long was Donna Troy’s boyfriend in The New Teen Titans, and there was always something off about him. Terry was 10 years older than Donna when they started dating – she was 19 at the time.

She was also his student, which is legally an issue. While Terry was very supportive of Donna’s superhero life and the two even got married, he eventually left Donna and unfortunately died in a car crash alongside his and Donna’s son, Robert.

There was an air of normalcy that DC tried to maintain with their relationship throughout the 80s, which would not hold up in today’s age.
