Synopsis for "The Vanguard"
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This book was first published on June 13, 1985.
- Due to the Post-Crisis reboot of material relating to Superman, the events from this issue have been removed from canon continuity and are considered apocryphal.
- The events from this issue take place in flashback. The framing device featuring Jericho takes place after he joins the Titans in Tales of the Teen Titans #58 and before the coming of Trigon leading to the destruction of Titans Tower I in New Teen Titans (Volume 2) #1.
- The events of the flashback are difficult to place. It must take place after New Teen Titans #31, when Terra gained the Titans' trust and was made a full member, and before the start of the Judas Contract storyline in Tales of the Teen Titans #42. Superman seems to be encountering Brainiac's robot form for the first time in this story, which would place it before his team-up with the Titans to fight Brainiac in Action Comics #546, prior to the Titans' team-up with the Outsiders in New Teen Titans #37. On the other hand, Robin took a leave of absence and Kid Flash quit altogether in New Teen Titans #39, which may explain why they are absent.
- Inconsistencies with established continuity may be explained by Jericho imagining things happening differently, the record itself being faulty, or, of course, Hypertime.
- Anti-Matterman is not to be confused with the Justice League of America villain Anti-Matter Man.
- Robin (Pre-Nightwing) and Kid Flash are the only members of the Teen Titans who do not make appearances in this issue.
- Cyborg mentions a battle with a villain called "the Corruptor" before the Titans met Jericho. This has never been expanded upon. Cyborg may simply have been joking and no such villain exists.
