Stand By T by BillWalko Stand By T by BillWalko
"You guys want to see a dead body?" It's a Stephen King Comic Book mash-up... "Stand By T" (T as in, Teen Titans)

Done for "THE LINE IT IS DRAWN #107 COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS MASHED UP WITH STEPHEN KING STORIES!"
[link]

Since so many have asked, here's a reasoning of the character match-ups:

Jerry O'Connell (Vern) is Aqualad: The insecure member of the group had to the Silver Age era Aqualad, since he suffered from an inferiority due to his power limitations. Like O'Connell, Aqualad later came into his own (as Tempest) and married a hottie (Rebecca Romijn/Dolphin)

Corey Feldman (Teddy) is Robin: This is causing concern to some, but Robin has to be Teddy due to the abusive father angle - a role Batman is most apt to fill. Plus, the glasses doubling as the Robin mask is too good a visual.

River Phoenix (Chris) is Speedy: Swagger. Bad boy attitude. Chris is very close in personality to Speedy, so this was a natural fit. I considered Speedy as Teddy, but the River Phoenix character suits neither Robin nor Kid Flash. Nope, River Phoenix is totally Speedy, no question.

Wil Wheaton (Gordie) is Kid Flash: At first it seems natural to place Robin in this role, but Gordie doesn't share as many character traits with Robin as he does with Kid Flash. Skinny Midwestern kid from a normal family? That's the Silver Age Kid Flash!

Not liking the notion of Batman as abusive father, to be honest. He can be a taskmaster yes, but he'd jump on top of hand grenade to protect one of his kids without even a second thought, that's the antithesis of absive parenting, IMHO.

Just to let you know, I'm mentioning this cool mashup on my blog in a post on River Phoenix that is going up October 15.

Love the thought you put into this Bill.

You make a great case for a Teddy as Robin. Teddy's completely misplaced admiration of an abusive father really fits him best. It is an incredibly tragic and depressing view of Robin, but it makes a lot of sense.

Chris has to be Roy. Completely natural fit.

Thanks, Sean. Yeah, it's the only way it fit -- even if it makes Robin pretty tragic.

They're as they should be in the roles you put them.
