The Teen Titans * The Justice League of America
Mal Duncan first met the original Teen Titans when they helped him fight a street gang. He joined the team on their request. Later he adopted the identity of the new Guardian, imitating the original hero of that name. Still later, after apparently having a vision of angels, Mal gained a seemingly magical horn and called himself Hornblower. After the horn somehow vanished, Mal returned to his Guardian identity. When the original Titans disbanded, Mal retired as a super-hero and married Karen Beecher, the former Titan called the Bumblebee. Mal is now a successful novelist.
