Synopsis for "Kidnapped!"

In the midst of official investigations into the Titans' battle with Brother Blood and his cult, Starfire is affected by a Gordanian mental probe and goes wild. She is then taken captive by the Gordanian slavers under the command of her renegade sister, Princess Kornand'r. After battling the aliens, the other Teen Titans, with the help of Aqualad, restore and commandeer two Gordanian ships and follow their foes to their orbiting mother ship. There they are overcome by robotic drones and hurled into space, where Raven's soul-self sustains them until they can be rescued by Superman who uses a tractor beam from the Justice League satellite. However, Superman is unable to aid the Titans' rescue mission, since his powers were halved (as seen in Action Comics 534-541) by magical enemies, and the Gordanians escape with Starfire.

Notes

  • The Justice League Satellite is empty because the Justice League are away on a mission taking place in Justice League of America #207. However, this causes an irreconcilable continuity conflict with Action Comics #536, as the figure in the Justice League Satellite who greets the Titans when they arrive is Superman (or rather the non-invulnerable half of Superman separated by Lord Satanis and Syrene and trapped in the 20th Century), but a complete, non-separated Superman, with full access to all his powers and the capacity to time-travel under his own power, is concurrently involved in the JLA issue. By this issue's attempt to assert that both Justice League of America #207 and Action Comics #536 take place simultaneously, it makes it so Superman must be present in two separate missions at the same time under two entirely different sets of conditions, which is impossible given the circumstances.

Trivia

  • While in octopus form, Changeling refers to himself as "Octy Octopus" and wonders if he can sell the name to the Zoo Crew.
