Letters Column: Tell it to the Titans

Known Justice League villain Doctor Light calls together a new team of super-villains, the Fearsome Five. The team consists of himself, Psimon, Mammoth, Gizmo and Shimmer. Doctor Light decides to prove the team's value as a force to be reckoned with by destroying the New Teen Titans.

The Titans meanwhile take a moment to relax at Donna Troy's new apartment. Donna invites Starfire to live with her as her roommate. Starfire tells her new friends about her youth and how she was sold into slavery in order to stalemate a centuries-long war between the people of her homeworld and the conquering forces of the Citadel. Raven suddenly appears before him and warns them of a new mission. Robin doesn't like the idea of snapping to attention every time Raven summons them, but his vocal protest earns himself the ire of teammate Kid Flash who has recently become extremely defensive when it comes to Raven. Tempers simmer and Raven tells the Titans about the threat of the Fearsome Five. Raven leads the Titans to the Fearsome Five's present locale. The two teams fight one another, but the Fearsome Five succeeds in evading capture.

Elsewhere in the city, Silas Stone visits the rundown apartment where his son Victor lives. Vic wants nothing to do with the old man and tells him to stay out of his life. Silas leaves without ever telling Victor that he is dying.

Shortly thereafter, all of the Titans receive a postcard telling them to meet on an island just off the East River. When they arrive, they discover a giant t-shaped tower which has been provided for them as their new headquarters. The Titans are incredulous of such a base of operations, mostly because they don't know who built it and why. Kid Flash races through the tower checking for booby traps.

Raven appears before the team once again and alerts them to another of her premonitions. This time, Robin insists that she gives the Titans a reason to trust her. She tells them of the threat of a demonic entity named Trigon the Terrible. She also reveals that in order to stop Trigon's forthcoming invasion of Earth, they will need to take arms against their allies the Justice League of America. The Titans have no idea what the Justice League has to do with any of this, and are extremely reluctant to put much stock in Raven's premonition.

Meanwhile, at the Fearsome Five's headquarters, Psimon reveals that he has been secretly manipulating his colleagues and is the reason for the group's formation to begin with. Psimon is actually an agent of Trigon who has been granted great psionic abilities in order to serve Trigon's goals. The Fearsome Five bait the New Teen Titans into a rematch, but this time they prove victorious against their young foes.
