NETFLIX’S Titans has kicked off for a second season and the superhero drama might already be building to its darkest twist yet – with Robin turning evil.
The first season of the show saw the ragtag team of young superheros put aside their differences and create the team to fight supervillians.
But their new family could be at threat in season 2 with the introduction of villainous assassin Deathstroke, played by Esai Morales.
While the character poses a dangerous threat to the team, it’s his past with Robin that might cause the biggest rupture in the Titans.
Robin (Brenton Thwaites) could end up betraying his new team of Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).
In the show Teen Titans – of which this new series is loosely based on alongside the popular comics – Robin betrays the team by siding with Deathstroke, known as Slade Wilson, to become the evil persona Red X.
As Red X, he fights his team and steals for Deathstroke – but luckily, it’s all a ruse to get closer to the villain and stop him once and for all.
However, Robin doesn’t tell his team of his plan and loses their trust when he’s found out. Will the same happen to Robin in the show? Or will he really join the assassin’s side?
Of what we know already, Deathstroke is the biggest threat the Titans have ever faced.
Donna Troy (Wonder Girl, played by Conor Leslie) tells Dick in the trailer: “Slade Wilson is the reason we shuttered this place. Sooner or later, he’ll come knocking.”
Slade’s character bio confirms how deadly he is too, reading: “Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin.
“While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge.
“To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.”
With an enemy as formidable as that, it looks like more heartache is in store for the Titans.
