Even as they fight for the fate of the world, the Titans know that small victories matter as much as any other.

Not many members of the Titans team remain after the Four Horsemen of Apokalips were unleashed on the world, each claiming a team member as their unwitting host. The most recognizable of them all is Famine inside Wally West’s body. His particular reign of terror has already claimed the lives of several other speedsters, including Kid Flash. While the surviving Titans may no longer have a home or complete faith in one another, there is no time left to attempt to repair the bridges. They have one shot left to take down the Riders, and the time to do it is now. On the battlefield, Crush, the daughter of Lobo, is enraged by the enormous Pestilence. Pestilence has settled into the body of her friend and teammate Roundhouse. Knowing that there is nothing left of him, Crush doesn’t have to worry about holding back at all. While Cy-Beast tends to Famine, Crush gets a tedder that leaves Pestilence literally vomiting her guts. At this moment, she lets out a triumphant “Booyah”.

First introduced in 2003 Teen Titans Cartoon Network television series, “Booyah” was the catchphrase of none other than Cyborg himself, and the typically happy or boisterous exclamation quickly became synonymous with the character. The catchphrase followed Cyborg from the beginning. Teen Titans series to Teen Titans Go! spin-off, and was even uttered by Ray Fisher when he played the character in the 2017 live action League of Justice. While that particular expression turned into something of a controversy, no one was disappointed when the character finally picked up the catchphrase in the comics relatively recently.

Seeing it come from someone other than Cyborg might be a bit strange, but it’s more than reasonable that one of his teammates has acquired it himself over the years. Then again, it could be indicative of a deeper relationship between Crush and Cyborg, or even his currently fused Cy-Beast form that he shares with Beast Boy. The two may not have more in common, but they’ve both been outsiders in ways the rest of the team haven’t. The idea that Crush found in Cyborg the mentor or role model he needed is not just a comforting thought, but a very real possibility. Whatever the case, it’s good to see that the beloved catchphrase is still alive, even if it’s in the worst future the DC Universe has seen thus far.
