Jericho called up the Teen Titans aboard their wing plane to tell them he was going to kill the Titans and use them to do it. They kept him on the phone to trace his call, and this allowed him to infect the wing 's computer system with a worm that gave him control over it. Jericho flew the wing to NYC and used it to attack the Titans. The Titans and Teen Titans managed to disable the T-Wing and crash it into the East River without anyone getting injured. Ravager was stowed away on the T-Wing, and told the Titans she waned to help them stop her brother without him getting killed. She also argued with Wonder Girl when she saw Bombshell on the team. Ravager wanted to know why she caught hell for being a former traitor if they d let other ex-villains on the team. Jericho possessed Raven and spirited away his sister. He told her he was trying to kill he Titans, but only because of the voices in his head. He asked for her help, and she turned him down.

He returned her to the Titans and fled to Time Square. The Titans spotted Vigilante, who was following them, and subdued him, though Ravager wanted to keep beating him for trying to kill Jericho. Vigilante promised to not kill Jericho if they promised that Jericho s killing days were over. Jericho entered the Hamilton Grande, prepared for a slaughter. He announced that he had rigged explosives throughout the restaurant, and every wealthy patron was his hostage.

The Titans confronted Jericho, and tried to reason with him, but he as having none of it, telling them he d succeed in killing them here his father failed, finally allowing him to overshadow his dad. He d strapped explosives to his hostages, and held the trigger, guaranteeing that the Titans would die trying to save them. He offered Ravager a chance to escape, but she wasn't abandoning her teammates. They tussled, and Jericho set off the detonator, and escaped. News crews filmed what appeared to be the dead Titans. Raven had actually created the illusion of the Titans death, and Miss Martian disguised herself as Deathstroke to confront and confuse Jericho. The Titans reached out to Jericho, and Raven tried to enter his mind to heal him, but all she found was darkness. They defeated him, but Vigilante made his presence known, and drew his guns, saying Jericho would kill again if not stopped. Ravager reminded him of his promise, and he slipped away.
