That's the focus on the new Titans (Rebirth) series - which is something of a surprise.
I expected this series to focus more on the characters (since they're old friends) and on the universe-shaking revelations that were revealed in the first DC Universe Rebirth story.
Instead they're thrown into a battle against the newly-revived Flash villain, Abra Kadabra, a magician from the far future whose advanced science looks like magic to us.
The issue, written by Dan Abnett, is given over to the classic "battle of magically-created doubles" - in this case, a throwback to the same team lineup as they were when they were the Teen Titans.
So, lots of over-the-top action as drawn by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund, and a cliffhanger ending.
So it's a decent start for this "reborn" series, but I'd still like to see more of the personalities of the heroes coming through (at least Linda Parks gets a few moments in the sun).
