Synopsis for "Kissing on the Apokolips"
Robin and Superboy are at each others' throats, with the rest of the team looking on. Robin questions Superboy's judgement in bringing them to the planet Apokolips. This of course brings to the fore the reservations that some of the team have about Robin - Batman had files on how to disable his JLA team-mates, does Robin have the same? He says no, and reveals a little of the tension between himself and his mentor to the group. He then brings them all into focus - sending half of them off to track down the person they came to Apokolips for, while he leads the others in an attempt to fix their ship, which is in a bad way. It got there because as they were on their way to retrieve the fallen Suicide Squad from the moon, they had a brief encounter with the Black Racer who, they discover, has Steel in tow. Superboy wants to pursue to rescue Steel, while Lobo simply has a score or twenty to settle with the Racer. Against their orders and Robin's judgement, they pursue to Apokolips, where they had a somewhat rough landing.
Lobo begins repairs on the ship while Robin, Empress and Secret look for spare parts in a small ship port that Lobo spotted as their craft was coming down. At the ship port, which is more like a junk yard really, they come under attack from a horde of Parademons, beings which have no sense of fear or individuality and so just keep coming - even when Robin calls in Lobo to help them out. Unfortunately, it seems that although the Parademons are happy to capture the humans, they simply want to kill Lobo, firing everything they have at him. To his credit, Lobo takes a number of them out with him, but in the end, the Black Racer arrives on the scene.
