"Before" and "after" of The Teen Titans.   These characters were sidekicks of the established heroes in the DC Comics universe.   The 'after' is when they were no longer teens, and took on new names and costumes.

Before (clockwise from top)  Aqualad (Aquaman's sidekick),  Wondergirl (Wonder Woman's sidekick), Speedy (Green Arrow's sidekick), Robin (Batman's sidekick) and Kid Flash (Flash's sidekick).

After (clockwise from top)  Troia (Wondergirl),  Tempest (Aqualad), Flash (Kid Flash), Nightwing (Robin) and Arsenal (Speedy)

What is a meeple?

A "meeple" is a little wooden (or plastic) pawn used in modern day board gaming to represent a player. It originated in the wonderful tile-placement game Carcassonne. "Meeple" is believed to be a combination of the words "my" and "people."

There was a line of meeples in the images of DC super heroes, so I managed to collect a few.

you click the images to make them bigger.





this container is shaped like the Hall of Justice, and holds 7 super meeples.  Bottle of spring water used for size comparison.

Are they called Meeples because they're in the shape of an M?

Usually players in games will have groups of them and refer to them as "meeples" instead of saying "my people".

Two of my Madonna albums came loose, and since I initially hung them on the wall, she released two other albums, I needed to take down the ones that were still up, and then rearrange them into a new pattern on the wall.

I finally got everything done this evening. 

I didn't hang them slanted, my phone was tilted slightly when I took the pic, and didn't want to retake it.  LOL

I was never able to find any confirmation of that.  I know they're in the movie together, so it could be.
