Brief Synopsis: Brother Blood and his Brotherhood of Evil defeat the Titans with relative ease, causing a worried Magenta to call in help.

ISSUE ANNOTATIONS

Page 29, panel 1
Fearful that the Titans may be dead and Brother Blood unopposed for world domination, Magenta uses the Titans' computer to summon aid. The computer contacts an unexpectedly eclectic crew consisting of Batman, Booster Gold, Doctor Midnight, John Stewart, Katma Tui, and Skyman. (Batman is mentor to Nightwing and Robin II, so his presence is expected. Skyman and Doctor Midnight are members of Infinity, Inc, a group closely tied to the Titans, as they are also a team of second-generation super heroes. Stewart and Katma Tui are presumably the only Green Lanterns near enough to respond. Perhaps Booster Gold is present, as Jason Redfern noted in Booster Gold, Vol. 1, #6, simply because he is uncommonly straightforward and more accessible to the public than most other DC Universe heroes.)

Booster is wearing a gold cape. His short haircut and gold star on his chest would tend to indicate that this story takes place after the events of Booster Gold, Vol. 1, #11, but since there is no time in Booster's title for these events to have taken place, they must have occurred after Booster's trip to the future in Booster Gold, Vol. 1, #15. Note that when Magenta asks if anyone is willing to sacrifice their lives to save the Titans, it is Booster who immediately responds in the affirmative.

ISSUE REVIEW

Boosterrific Review: Tension and danger are palpable in this well-crafted tale of the fall of the Teen Titans. However, in a title that already has too many characters in play against a seemingly never-ending series of insurmountable world conquerors, is it really necessary to add more characters to "help" the situation? A minor quibble in an otherwise good issue.

Boosterrific Rating:

Worth Its Weight In Gold.
