Thirty years into the future, the world is peaceful, and mostly ridden of crime. The Titans have retired and are now living separate lives. Beast Boy and Cyborg, however, wasted thirty years of their lives with a staring contest over a piece of pizza, and couldn't handle all of the responsibility that attributed with adulthood.
They built a time machine, went back thirty years, and instead of staring at the pizza, they split it in half. This single change in the timeline altered history's events incredibly. Somehow, this worked to the advantage of the Robot Overlords, who managed to take control over the Earth and unleash their hoards of minions onto the planet's inhabitants.
Robot Overlords are giant robots with red and blue plating.
- Staring at the Future (debut & only appearance)
- The Robot Overlords are the second villains to defeat the Teen Titans, the first being the Cironeilian Chrysalis Eater.
- The Robots look strikingly similar to the Manhunters, a race of androids created by the Guardians of the Universe (the ones in charge of the Green Lantern Corps.) in the comics who eventually become important members of the Sinestro Corps.
