DC Universe's live-action Titans series will be packing some serious power in its sophomore season, with Joshua Orpin (The Blake Mysteries: Ghost Stories) joining the streaming service's series as "The Boy of Steel" himself, Conner Kent aka Superboy. Orpin joins series stars Brenton Thwaites (Richard "Dick" Grayson / Robin), Anna Diop (Koriand'r / Kory Anders / Starfire), Teagan Croft (Rachel Roth / Raven), and Ryan Potter (Garfield "Gar" Logan / Beast Boy) in a key season 2 role.

Orpin's Conner Kent/Superboy is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.

Because you're not a real movie or television show if you don't have your own end-credit teasers, Titans fans who know you don't turn off an episode until the next one starts or you've run out of episodes were treated to a major game-changer at the very end of the season 1 finale:

Tell me if this sounds familiar: we're in a lab in Metropolis – or at least what used to be a lab. Now a scene of utter destruction and chaos – with alarms at full blast and bodies of doctors and scientists strewn everywhere – there appears to be only one survivor.
