Storyline: Princess Koriand'r escaped a Gordanian slave ship and made the jump to hyperspace.
Dick Grayson woke up to the girl who'd been haunting his dreams - Raven. She told him a new Teen Titans must be created and asked that he contact Kid Flash. Wally West refused to join him - he was a full time college student and had quit the hero business. Raven asked Robin to find Wonder Girl. He and Beast Boy (now wishing to be called Changeling) found her at a burned-down apartment building. As they talked, Kid Flash arrived - ready to join. They headed off and arrived at their next destination. Raven was at a track where once-athlete Victor Stone (now half-human, half cybernetic) joined the team as Cyborg. Raven told them their final member was about to arrive on Earth and would need a rescue. They fended off a small alien invasion (the Gordanian slavers), but Raven could not find the final member. The rest followed her to a nearby apartment were more of the Gordanians were attacking. They'd found and captured Koriand'r - their prey. The Teen Titans were able to get onto the Gordanian ship. Working very well together, they saved Koriand'r and destroyed the ship.


Issue #2

Cover Date: December 1980
Subtitle: Today...the Terminator
Writer(s): Marv Wolfman
Artists(s): George Perez, Romeo Tanghal
Storyline: The HIVE brought in Deathstroke, the Terminator for a contract on the Teen Titans. He refused since they refused to pay him up front. The HIVE planned to create their own "terminator" from the readings they got.
The Titans set up a new apartment for the girl who's they destroyed saving Starfire (Koriand'r). After, they took down some robots which were stealing pharmaceuticals. Deathstroke watched.
Grant Wilson, ex-boyfriend of the girl who'd had her apartment smashed by the Gordanians, began going through scientific experiments conducted by HIVE.
The team relaxed at Garfield Logan's pool, while Cyborg took the remaining robot to his father's lab. A man calling himself the Ravager (Grant Wilson) attacked Cyborg. Deathstroke grabbed him and vanished after he'd disabled the Titan. The Ravager escaped Deathstroke and went back after the Titans. He died in battle - the HIVE knew he would. Raven let Deathstroke take his dead son away. He took over the contract.
