Synopsis for "Baptism of Blood!"

While Raven's soul-self distracts Brother Blood, Terra uses her earth-powers to free the Teen Titans. After they battle and defeat his monstrous creatures, Blood offers to meet the Titans in personal combat. Instead, he attacks them with robots and missiles, which the Titans manage to repel. An explosive holographic image of the villain, however, dispatches all the Titans but Raven and Cyborg, whom Blood himself easily defeats. Even as Zandian President Marko declares a state of war between his government and Brother Blood's church, Blood orders a mind-controlled Dick Grayson to activate a laser cannon which will kill his six teammates. Starfire's protestations of love for him enable Dick to break free of his trance and release the Titans. Before Brother Blood can act, President Marko's forces attack, bringing his temple down around his ears and causing the laser cannon to collapse, seemingly crushing the villain. The Titans escape the holocaust, but with Blood an apparent martyr, belief in his cult flourishes and world governments condemn the regime of Marko, his political enemy.
