Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and Aqualad are in attendance, at a Command Performance, for the Queen of England, in Buckingham Palace. Suddenly, the Mad Mod appears, to steal the Royal Scepter. Kid Flash races up the stairs to nab the Mad Mod, only to be beaten back by a beefeater. Wonder Girl momentarily gets a hold of the Mad Mod, but a blow to her head, from the Royal Scepter, sends her crashing back down to the floor, on top of Aqualad. The Teen Titans had come to England, at the bequest of the Queen, to attend the Command Performance. Upon arrival, they were presented with dress costumes. While Wonder Girl, Kid Flash, and Aqualad partook of London's social scene, Robin toured the city's historical sights. By happenstance, the Boy Wonder is accidentally locked inside the Tower of London, and thus is absent for the Command Performance.Kid Flash races after the Mad Mod's getaway van. Strangely, Kid Flash is quickly overcome with fatigue, and resorts to stealing a motorbike, to continue his pursuit. Aided by the London fog, Kid Flash is able to keep out of sight, as he chases after the Mad Mod. Unfortunately, the lack of visibility cuts both ways, as Kid Flash crashes into a haystack. On foot, Kid Flash catches up with the Mad Mod at the Chalk Charger, a seedy pub. Eavesdropping on the Mad Mod's conversation, Kid Flash learns that the Royal Scepter has been buried in the "ear" of an enormous chalk carving of a horse. Kid Flash retrieves the Royal Scepter, only to be brought down by the Mad Mod. Kid Flash radios the Teen Titans that the Mad Mod plans to bring the Royal Scepter to Loch Ness. Aqualad closes in on the Mad Mod's submarine, and retrieves the Royal Scepter from it's hiding place, within a large vase.Fatigue, too, overwhelms Aqualad, who is unable to swim fast enough to escape the Mad Mod's net. The Mad Mod ties Aqualad up, within a tower, leaving him to die, from dehydration, when his hour out of water has elapsed. Aqualad summons the Loch Ness monster to the tower....
