Based on the upcoming hit animated show from Warner Bros. debuting on Cartoon Network! Robin, Superboy, Kid Flash and Aqualad star in this explosive issue kick starting an all-new ongoing series! They're four young superheroes learning how to be a team ... and maybe doing a bit of growing up along the way – but only just a little bit!
After the battle at Cadmus on July 4, the young heroes, along with the newly discovered Superboy demand to all be allowed to continue working together as a team. Batman then requests three days in order to make up his mind on this life changing choice.
During a swim together, Aqualad apologizes to his King, Aquaman, over his behavior after dismantling Cadmus on the surface. Aquaman demands no apology, instead praising his protégé for his wise words regarding a young team-up.
Fed up with her son, Mary West shuts down the TV. She gives Wally the credit card that came in the mail for him and kicks both boys out of the house. There is a note attached to it from Batman that read: "for expenses", so they decide to buy Superboy some new clothes. He has been wearing his damaged solar suit for three days now.
Angry and impatient, Dick Grayson waits for Batman to come up with the solution he promised. Two-and-a-half of the three days have already gone by, and Batman spent most of them alone in the Batcave. Alfred reassures Dick that Batman will keep his word.
Tommy and Tuppence Terror decide to rob Gemini Gems over a $2,000 necklace. They smash the casings and throw a security guard out of the window.
At Forever Sixteen, Superboy picks out a whole rack of identical black T-shirts with a red Superman logo when they hear the ruckus nearby. Disguising themselves with bandana face masks, Superboy and Kid Flash try to stop them. They appear to be evenly matched until the fight moves outside, and the Terror Twins are scared away by the sudden arrival of Flash and Superman. Superman chases after them, but Flash tells the two young heroes to go home and get some sleep, because Batman has made his decision.
Kid Flash, Robin, Aqualad and Superboy are brought to Mount Justice. Batman says that he will allow the young heroes to continue fighting the "good fight", as long as it is on League terms. Red Tornado will be their supervisor, Black Canary will be in charge of training, and Batman will deploy them on covert missions. The Justice League will handle obvious threats, but the five young heroes will operate on the sly. Robin is surprised at the number, and wonders who the fifth member will be.
A stopover is an interruption in a journey; it shows how the three days only hinted at in "Fireworks" passed for the Team.
Two scenes from the end of "Fireworks", the second episode of the TV series, are recreated in the comic: the scene shortly after the battle at Cadmus, in which the young heroes request to be allowed to continue putting their talents to good use; and the start of the final scene at Mount Justice, in which Batman tells them they will be formed into a team, but before the introduction of Miss Martian. The remainder of the comic takes place between these two scenes.
Alfred Pennyworth: I believe, Master Dick, that the Batman asked for three days... Dick Grayson: Demanded is more like it. And it's been almost two and a half! Alfred Pennyworth: When Master Bruce says three... he means three.
Tuppence Terror: Son, you do pack a wallop... Superboy: Lady, I'm not your son. Tuppence Terror: And I ain't no lady.
