The Titans are like a family; they always look after their own.

Even the black sheep.

When former long-time Titan Joey Wilson, a.k.a. Jericho, returns to the fold with a major problem – his super-human ability to take over people’s bodies has left him stuck in the Bizarro Superboy, Match – his friends are quick to help.

When things quickly go wrong and Jericho – who has a history of sociopathic behaviour, including trying to kill the Titans before – leaves Match and possesses one of the Titans, things get very complicated.

With the identity of who is possessed a mystery, the eight Titans agree to lockdown their headquarters and try to figure out in whom Joey is hiding. But when the Justice League shows up to take them all in to help secure Jericho, he’s not interested in going quietly and he doesn’t care if he has to jump into every single Titan and battle every single Leaguer to break free.

All this and a tearful farewell for a founding member off to bigger things in an entertaining and fast-paced second collection of this solid new Titans series by writers Judd Winick and Sean McKeever and artist Howard Porter.
