Titans Rebirth - RAVEN!

DC Multiverse - Titans (Beast Boy Series) - Raven - McFarlane Toys 2023

I remember being pretty young the first time I saw Raven in the pages of The New Teen Titans and being inexplicably scared of her. The funny thing was that it wasn't her hooded, shadowed-face look that spooked me, but rather her uncostumed visage with a pronounced widow's peak and stark features. My reaction made no sense, but it oddly lingered into adulthood. Her quirky revamp in the Teen Titans animated series from 2003 seemingly opened the floodgates for new interpretations of the character. And I've honestly loved every version of her since (I was particularly fond of the feathered "Black Bird of Terror" look in the New 52). This figure represents a newer look that I believe debuted in her 2018 Daughter of Darkness solo series. I love that this version blends the classic 80s look with some newer details like pink hair, prominent red medallion and belt, and "feather-cut" cloak. It's a fun modernization while still being very recognizably Raven. Let's check her out below!

Raven comes with two translucent pink power effects, a figure stand, and a collector's card.

She also comes with the Head and Hands for the Collect-to-Build Beast Boy figure.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Raven with her wave-mate Donna Troy.

And here is the entire Titans wave with the Beast Boy figure assembled.

And swapping in the normal-sized Walmart-exclusive Beast Boy.
