Two who are now … just one!
Warning: spoiler alert!
The new DC event in the comics, Future State makes several changes to the publisher’s most diverse characters, and now the Teen Titans have changed their squad as well, with two great heroes “merging” and sharing a body.
In Future State: Teen Titans # 1, readers got a big surprise when it was revealed that Beast Boy and Cyborg now share the same body. HQ reveals that, in the future, several heroes on the team died, while others gained new names.
At HQ, we see the world completely devastated and the Island of the Titans completely destroyed. An exact explanation of what happened is not given, however, it is quickly discovered that several of the Titans are dead, some less well known, like Jamanta, Summer Zahid, Matt Price and Lucas La Porte. However, it is also revealed that Donna Troy, Wally West (the Flash) and Wallace West (the Kid Flash) are also dead.
On top of all the deaths, the team also had an additional cut, with the Cyborg and the Beast coming together in one body. HQ does not explain how this happened, but it is implied that the “merger” occurred at the same time that the other Titans died. The new hero has the combined personalities and qualities of the two heroes.
Called “Cybeast”, the hero is still an important part of the team and would be on a mission, in search of the spear of fate, to stop the villains of the plot, called “Four Riders”.
