Raven Returns in the New 52

The once former Teen Titan is ready to make her debut.

"Where is ___ in the New 52?"

This is a question I get a lot. We all know there are several characters that haven't been see yet since the New 52 started over a year ago. One of those MIA characters is Raven. Fans can rejoice as it appears she will be making her appearance this month.

The solicit for THE PHANTOM STRANGER #1 (due out this week according to but not on Previews' release list) mentions the following:

The Phantom Stranger strikes a bargain with Lord Trigon that will have serious repercussions in the DC Universe!

ComicsBeat pointed out an announcement from Scott Lobdell at this weekend's Las Vegas Comic Expo New 52 panel. Apparently he will be writing a Teen Titans spinoff with Raven leading the team. Lobdell has hinted over the return of Raven pretty much since the New 52 started.

As for who would appear on her team, exactly how old Raven is and what, if any, connection to Dick, Kori and Roy exists remains to be seen. But at least that's one more missing character making their return.

You can catch some of the previously posted discussion in the forums HERE as well.
