What’s going to happen in the final season of Titans?

Titans, the HBO Max superhero series,  is about to premiere its final episodes on April 13, and fans are wondering what will become of the titular heroes. After almost four seasons of battling demonic cults, superpowered assassins, and evil scientists, the Titans must finish facing their greatest threat in Brother Blood and Mother Mayhem.

With just six episodes left and multiple plotlines still unresolved, it is likely that the following predictions for the fourth season will become a reality.

Donna Troy returns … with Arsenal

Though she briefly died in season 3, Donna Troy came back from the dead at the beginning of season 4 and decided to join ARGUS and work alongside Roy Harper, whom many comic book fans known as the protégé of the Emerald Archer, Green Arrow. Considering the power that Brother Blood and Mother Mayhem possess, the Titans will likely need the help of the superpowered Amazon to level the playing field.

It also wouldn’t hurt to have a skilled archer join the fight (just ask Hawkeye), and it would be a treat for fans to see Arsenal make his on-screen debut in this show.

Dove flies back home and rejoins the Titans

Though she was a prominent ally of the Titans for most of the series as the vigilante dove, Dawn left for Paris in season 3 after inadvertently causing the death of her partner/boyfriend, Hank. Such a trip was meant to help her process her grief after her traumatic loss, but she should reappear before the series ends, having achieved some closure. This seems likely as Donna intended to share a message she received from Hank from beyond the grave.

Red Hood joins the fight

Jason Todd walked down a dark path in season 3 after Scarecrow resurrected him and drove him to become the ultraviolent vigilante known as the Red Hood. But after overcoming the effects of the villain’s anti-fear gas and defeating him in the finale, Jason opted to continue fighting crime on his own, regretting all the horrible things he did as the Red Hood. B

Since he is still on good terms with Dick, Jason could return to help him and the Titans defeat the Church of Blood, giving his character a complete and more satisfying character arc.

Trigon returns

Trigon is the evil catalyst for everything in this series, and his influence is still felt in his followers in the Church of Blood, now led by his son, Brother Blood. It only makes sense for Trigon to have a second coming in the show’s final episodes.

The villain suffered a lackluster defeat at Raven’s hands at the beginning of season 2, and after the show had built up so much hype for his appearance, fans felt that he deserved a better confrontation. And since he isn’t technically dead, his followers could somehow have him return to Earth, allowing the Titans to face Trigon in a battle that’s both fitting for the demonic tyrant and the series’ conclusion.

Conner meets Superman

Conner Kent was supposed to meet with his biological father, Superman, at the start of season 4, but the Man of Steel was forced to cancel at the last minute to deal with some crisis in another galaxy. Despite this disappointing bait and switch, the show is clearly setting up an actual appearance by Superman.

The hero may be busy, but given the threat that Trigon and his followers are to the cosmos, it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise if he swooped in to help the Titans defeat them once and for all. But when everything is said and done, Conner should finally get to meet his dad.

Raven will die

Rachel spent most of the first half of season 4 deprived of her powers. Fortunately, her magic abilities were restored during a battle against Mother Mayhem, with Rachel achieving her “White Raven” form. Those familiar with the comic book lore know that this is Raven’s strongest and purest form, as she is liberated from Trigon’s dark influence when using her power.

But if her fiendish father does return to wreak havoc on the universe, she might have to make the ultimate sacrifice to finally stop him. Since the show began with her, it’s only fitting that it ends with her.

Tim Drake becomes the Titans’ new leader

Tim Drake fulfilled his dream of becoming the new Robin at the end of season 3, but he may soon follow in the footsteps of his comic book counterpart and take Dick’s place as the Titans’ leader. Though Tim is still new to the role and has yet to debut his look as Robin, Dick has begun to overcome his fears of having others carry his responsibilities as a crime-fighter by deciding to train Tim.

This may very well lead to Dick completely passing the baton onto Tim, as the visions Dick and Kory had of their possible daughter hint that he may decide to settle down and start a family while letting Tim lead his team.

Nintendo’s Zelda movie needs to be nothing like The Super Mario Bros. Movie
Link pulls out the master sword in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

The long-rumored The Legend of Zelda live-action movie is actually happening, with Nintendo confirming that it's officially in production. It’s a logical move following The Super Mario Bros. Movie, one of the year’s highest-grossing films. Video game adaptations appear to be in fashion more than ever before -- seemingly dethroning superhero movies in the process -- and it’s undeniably exciting to see more and more of my favorite franchises make their way to the big screen.

But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried.

5 best Batman villains ever, ranked
Joker and several other Batman villains in comic book art for Hush.

Is Batman the greatest character in comic book history? Arguably, yes. The Dark Knight is among the genre's most complex and layered figures, a fascinating study of trauma, grief, and unwavering loyalty. Batman's storylines, set against the bleak backdrop of the morally bankrupt cesspool that is Gotham City, are all about the struggle to save a corrupt city from itself. Gotham is more than willing to descend into chaos and madness, often led by one or more of Batman's most iconic villains.

Indeed, part of what makes the Caped Crusader such a fascinating and enduring figure is his collection of deranged enemies, all of whom have a tight grasp on the city, even from the confinement of Arkham's walls. Batman's villains are dark reflections of the Dark Knight, representing the darkest corners of his broken and dangerous psyche. Perhaps that's what sets them apart from the usual brand of over-the-top-bordering-on-ridiculous comic book villains. Batman's foes have panache to spare, but they also have that which eludes so many other comic creations: gravitas. And while Arkham Asylum has more than its fair share of noteworthy residents, a few stand out as the best Batman villains of all time.
