The “Titans” Series Villain Is The Acolyte

A casting call for the upcoming live-action “Titans” series has seemingly unveiled new details about the show’s villain – one that will be familiar to those who read “Young Justice” in the 1990s.

The Hashtag Show, who broke the casting news on Hawk and Dove serving as characters in the show, have learned a key role will be that of The Acolyte. In the series he’s an African-American male in his forties looking to capture and steal Raven’s powers after murdering her adoptive mother Angela in a failed kidnap attempt.

In the comics, the Acolyte is seemingly a blue-skinned, horned demon with a wide array of mystical powers until its discovered he’s really a human with clever tricks and prosthetics to make himself appear to be more than he really is.
