The Titans are back in New York City — or at least they were for a few hours.
Vic Stone, a.k.a. Cyborg, is ready to revive the Titans on the East Coast (the current Teen Titans moved out West several years ago), and after getting rejected by longtime members like Nightwing, The Flash, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and others, he sets his sights in a new direction.
Thus is born a team made up of Hawk and Dove, Power Boy, Little Barda, Anima, Son of Vulcan and, ahem, Lagoon Boy.
But on the their first training mission — a war game where the new squad tries to capture Power Boy — tragedy strikes and the new team is attacked and left bloodied and broken.
Who will be left to pick up the pieces?
After a pretty solid setup issue, readers now have to wait for the answer in the all-new Titans #1, featuring the return of some of those longtime members mentioned earlier, coming sometime (don’t ask me when) in 2008.
