Synopsis for "Human Resources"
A group of teenagers swallow a pill of a new drug developed by S.T.A.R. Labs, Red K, giving them random meta powers they want to use to have fun, with the guarantee that one of their parents, a judge, will just solve any consequent problem. Meanwhile, the Teen Titans discuss the proposal they received to join S.T.A.R. Labs: Tim Drake is convinced the timing of the proposal and the resources that Manchester Black want to give them are too good to be true, and wants to investigate while giving Black the impression they want to join. He sends Beast Boy to look into the thing with some stealth action.
Outside her apartment, Cassie Sandsmark is talking with her mother about her life and the fact that Helena doesn't want her to be involved in superhero action: all this happens with a gang of several girls following Cassie in super-hero gear, a thing that Wonder Girl does not like too much. As she is walking by a building, a girl apparently on fire falls down from the roof and Cassie saves her. What she does not know is that she is part of a group of four kids who just took a drug giving them random meta powers. As she shouts to her fan-girls to bring her mom away and keep her safe, she calls for the help of the rest of the Titans.
The team, without Gar, fights the four punks while Manchester Black and Josiah Power watch the whole thing, fascinated by the skill and the abilities of the young heroes. Gar reports everything to Tim but while this happens, one of the drug-powered guys throws a truck towards Helena, trying to kill her. One of Cassie's fan-girls saves her, apparently sacrificing herself. In a blast of rage, Cassie knocks out the kid but soon the Titans discover that this girl is not a victim, but quite a powerful hero herself!
