A mysterious costumed figure invades the Teen Titans lair, then purposefully tips off his presence. The Teen Titans are first lured to their training room, where they discover a jack-in-the-box has triggered their alarm. Hearing sounds coming from their meeting room, they double back to find the costumed man, Joshua, waiting for them. Speedy reaches for Joshua, only to be repelled by an electric charge.

Slipping on a pair of insulated rubber gloves, Robin confronts Joshua, offering to hear his story. Joshua informs the Teen Titans that a group of teenagers are planning to demonstrate, outside a local police station, on account of one of their friends being arrested. Joshua's sources say the teenagers plan on coming to the demonstration armed. Joshua leads the Teen Titans to the teenage gang.
