The Titans team will slowly but surely start to assemble (are we allowed to use that word here?) when the DC Universe streaming service debuts its first original series on Friday, Oct. 12.

Releasing new episodes weekly, Titans finds Dick Grayson (played by Pirates of the Caribbean 5‘s Brenton Thwaites) toiling as a Detroit police detective, having put an apparently rocky break-up with Gotham City billionaire Bruce Wayne aka Batman behind him.

Close - Harrowing - Episode - Skirmish - Rachel

At the close of a harrowing Episode 2 skirmish, Rachel is pulled into the orbit of “Kory” (aka Koriand’r aka Starfire), a badass who boasts her own out-of-this-world origin story — though she sadly isn’t aware of it at the moment!

“In the pilot episode, Starfire wakes up having lost her...
