Cover Description: The Titans fight among themselves. (No Booster Gold.)

Brief Synopsis: Arsenal comes to terms with his recent past with Deathstroke and the Titans.

Issue Summary:

Joseph tries mentally to force Deathstroke to confront his own flawed motivations for forcing the Titans to play at being gods. When Joseph fails, Arsenal takes a more physical approach. Cinder destroys the Methuselah device, settling the question. With no further reason to fight for or against Deathstroke, the team dissolves permanently.

Meanwhile, Booster Gold and many other heroes attend the funeral for Ryan Choi. Ray Palmer delivers an emotional eulogy for his fallen comrade.

Boosterrific Review: This book simultaneously feels rushed and unnaturally decompressed (especially the dialogue). It is a jumbled mess of intra-squad violence, placid denouement, and character posturing for the post-Flashpoint DCnU. To be fair, it really isn't a terrible book of its own accord, but it is clearly the final product of some really bad stories preceding it; after all, a desert can only be as good as its ingredients.
