Appearing in "Fever Pitch"
Synopsis for "Fever Pitch"
Superboy positions himself between Roxy and the Titans so that they can't get to her. Nightwing demands Superboy stand down and let them bring Roxy in for treatment. Roxy, however, still not feeling quite like herself, does not want their help and starts flying away. Jesse Quick takes after her while Tempest freezes Superboy in mid air. At that point, however, Guardian and Heat Wave show up and Heat Wave frees the kid. Nightwing attacks Heat Wave on sight and manages to take his heat gun away from him, which he tosses to Arsenal, who in turn turns it on Guardian to keep him at bay. Guardian is still recovering from the injuries inflicted by Ripjak but is able to help Superboy double time Troia after evading Arsenal.
Jesse closes in on Roxy but is batted away in the skies and starts falling like a stone. Superboy lets go of Troia who goes and rescues Jesse. Arsenal fires a fire extinguishing arrow at Roxy but it is intercepted by SB. Argent takes the opportunity to imprison Roxy in a solid energy bubble. Superboy is getting ticked off and is ready to pull out all the stops when Doc Angel and Dr. Sarah Charles show up and explain that Roxy has been possessed by some kind of alien life form. Superboy and Nightwing call a truce and Kon talks to the possessed Roxy, explaining how much he cares about Roxy and how much he wants to help her. Argent calls off the energy bubble and the alien being rips itself free of Roxy. The alien being (whom Roxy identifies as Pyra) flies away unmolested.
The Titans go back to Project Cadmus with the rest. Nightwing tells Heat Wave that he's going to ask the Flash to keep an eye on him just in case. Guardian finds out that he's the great-uncle of Arsenal and they decide to catch up. Doc Angel and Dr. Charles reconcile with one another. Superboy visits Roxy and tells her again how much he cares and loves her like his own family. Roxy tells him that she and her father Rex will be leaving to patch things up but she promises to come back and turn his world upside down again when he leasts expects it.
