Meanwhile, the remaining Teen Titans decide to hold a recruitment drive for new members on the roof of a popular Metropolis arcade called The Stain. People who show up for the event include Captain Marvel, Jr., Arsenal, Fringe, Superboy, Supergirl, Robin and many others. In the middle of the auditions, the Veil attacks the building and a huge fight breaks out. The assembled heroes manage to drive the The Veil away and the Titans acquire two new members - Captain Marvel, Jr. and Fringe.
After everything settles down, Superboy alerts the other Titans that Cody Driscoll is at the Slab.
