Synopsis for Teen Titans: "A Swingin' Christmas Carol!"
This story is reprinted from Teen Titans #13.
It's a few days before Christmas and the Teen Titans are relaxing in their headquarters. While the other members of the group are satisfied reading comic book adventures of their older counterparts, Robin is reading Charles Dickens classic book "A Christmas Carol" completely unaware that their next adventure would have similar parallels to the story itself.
Elsewhere in the city is Junkorama owned by the miserly Ebenezer Scrounge, who employs Bob Ratchet as his accountant (Bob is also saving money for his sick son Tom) Ebenezer is forcing Tom to work on Christmas Eve. Left alone, Scrounge goes off to sell some scrap metal to thugs who work for a man named Mr. Big. Tom Ratchet goes to visit his father and snoops on Scrounge's transaction and finds the whole exchange strange. When Scrounge leaves the scene, Tom secretly witnesses the men use a device that turns the scrap into "new" items for them to sell for even more. Tom decides to go and tell his father. When Bob confronts his boss about it later, Ebenezer threatens to fire him if he tells the authorities about the illegal operation.
Tom meanwhile gets in touch with the Teen Titans who agree to investigate the matter and sneak onto the property. After knocking out Mr. Big's goons, the Titans disguise themselves as the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future causing Ebenezer to break down and repent his miserly ways and tell the Teen Titans where they can find Mr. Big.
Finding the location of Mr. Big's hideout the Titans try to stop him and make short work of his men until Big uses a giant magnet to magnetize a pile of junk to trap his foes. They are saved at the last minute due to the timely intervention of Tom and Ebenezer who turn off the magnet, allowing the Titans to easily defeat their foes. After the battle, Ebenezer uses Mr. Big's device to transform a pile of junk into a new electric wheelchair for Tom.
With the caper over, the group all decide to celebrate their victory, and Christmas as well.
