We open with a prologue once again, as Kid Amazo's family, better known as the Super Duffy's, take down Titano - The giant cyborg gorilla. These events take place a few months ago. In the present, Superboy is attacked by Batman in the woods, while Robin is thrown around by Superman at the warehouse they came across last week. During the fight, the boys both realize that they are fighting robots rather than the actual Superman and Batman. During the battle the boys are brought together, and almost immediately begin to argue with one another, making the robots lower their guard, as they attack and try to take them down. Proving unsuccessful, Kid Amazo's sister, whom Superboy came across earlier, orders the robots to "stop" and "put them down". She explains that she can control machines, and the boys head back to the warehouse with her in tow. Meanwhile the two robots acting as Superman and Batman, fall apart, and reassemble to become versions of Jon and Damien. Amazo's sister explains Kid Amazo's powers, and explains what she's been through because of her brother. The boys begin to argue once again, as Amazo's sister appears to get possessed by her brother. She explains that she too is a robot, and that she managed to wrestle control of the robot form because of her powers. She tells the boys that she is an Amazo-Bot with her personality and her family are safe for now, but fears that her brother will kill them for real soon, if he so chooses. We end with the boys overwhelmed by many Amazo-Bot versions of Superboy and Robin. As they seem to be on the losing end of the battle.

We open with Jon accommodating the Teen Titans in his home after the events of last issue. Meanwhile Damien is struggling with his advanced aging, namely of the bathroom kind. The Teen Titans decide they need to go back out and find the beings that defeated them to stop them, as well as find a way to reverse Damien's condition. They ask that Jon join them, to which even Damien is in agreeance with. We cut to the mastermind behind the whole mess, a low level magician name Kraklow. He was visited upon by his future self, who gave him the means to create the beings that took down the Teen Titans. He created the trio of Atom Master, Time Commander and Faceless Hunter from clay blessed by real magic. All this is in the hopes of him becoming infamous. He sends his trio out to finish the Teen Titans, just as they burst into Kraklow's lair. A battle ensues, and the trio unleash their power onto the teenage heroes, but it appears that Jon is much more powerful than he is given credit for, and manages to turn the tide against them. The Teen Titans take care of the trio, as Robin catches up with the Time Commander, to reverse the effects of the rapid aging. The rest of the trio start to decompose back to clay, and the team apprehends Kraklow. Before the Teen Titans leave, they all have some encouraging words for Jon, and Raven tells him that he is always welcome back to the Teen Titans, even though he is not yet a teen. Damian tells Jon not to get too cocky, and that they are more impressed with the "S" he wears on his chest, than anything else. Both boys grab samples of the clay for Damian to study back at the Batcave. As the two boys bicker over whether Damian is meant to be Jon's trainer and mentor, something seems to open up in the background, breaking through possibly time and space...

"Planet of the Capes" - Part 3
Writer: Peter J. Tomasi

Inker: Jorge Jimenez
We open from where we left off last issue, with the boys being sucked into another dimension after having defeated Kraklow and his super powered henchmen made of "magical clay". The boys are immediately attacked by a large creature with tentacles. Jon uses his powers to try and get himself and Damien free. He is suddenly helped out by two girls, Hard Line and Big Shot, who not only free them from the creatures' grasp, but also help them find some sanctuary. They head back to a small village where Hard Line and Big Shot live with more of their people. The girls explain how their world, called Eoroe, was taken over by a being called Ygarddis, who turns out to be the being that the girls saved Jon and Damien from. It turns out that Kraklow in this dimension was a great wizard and helped Hard Line and Big Shot escape from doom when Ygarddis attacked and took over. This comes as a shock to the boys, as they had just faced Kraklow on Earth and he was no hero there. Jon however recalls that his father once told him about how there are many Earths, with many different versions of the same people, and that this may have been the case with Kraklow. Damien tries to come up with a plan for him and Jon to return to their home dimension. Jon is more concerned about helping Hard Line and Big Shot and what remains of their people, from Ygarddis. Later, Damien returns from reconnaissance, he tells Jon that he had been exploring their surroundings and has learned much about the landscape. Jon tells him of his own theories regarding Kraklow and the "magical clay" that Kraklow used against them back home, and how it may be what Ygarddis was really after when he attacked Eoroe, and that the Kraklow of this world gave the clay to the Kraklow of Earth, thinking he too was a powerful wizard and one of the good guys. Suddenly they are attacked by Ygarddis and a legion of super powered beings that he has created himself from the "magic clay"... "Other worlders... Call me Ygarddis... The Macrocosm... The Biomass... I am this planet... And this planet is my army... It is time to feed"...
