This cover lieeeees.

Picking up from last issue Red Tornado and Kathy quickly realize Traya was no longer in the collapsed house, dead or alive and Vixen's friendly animals tell her that it was Red Inferno who took her from the house. 



 

A neat little character quirk for her and kinda makes sense given she's water and water hates being contained. I think I've mentioned her claustrophobia in my prior posts as it was obvious even from the prior issues but only here was it fully confirmed by Red tornado. 

Tornado catches up to Volcano and begins his fight as Torpedo while Torpedo does her best to cut Volcano off from the ley Lines feeding his power.

 

Meanwhile Traya and Inferno/Seth chat, with Inferno clearly having some trauma he's trying to reconcile finding out he's an android, having his parents die all in the same day/time span (I think it's all in this same day)



Back at the battle Tornado's been having a rough time with the extra superpowered Volcano when Volcano suddenly feels something's wrong (his connection to the Ley Lines vanishing) and believes Tornado did it somehow. Torpedo makes it clear Tornado wasn't the one who did so.

 

On the brink of total defeat Volcano uses his powers to destabilize the cavern they're all fighting in forcing Torpedo and Tornado to flee, though Tornado has to give her a hand as she becomes paralyzed with the fear of being crushed by the falling rocks. Thus allowing Volcano to return again in the future.

            

Back with Seth and Traya Seth is taking out his anger at Traya, yelling at her that likely Tornado and Kathy are dead like his parents are and that that can't be changed. Only for Kathy, Vixen and shortly after Tornado himself to show up. Tornado invites Inferno to join the family or at least to give him help but Inferno doesn't want any of that.



Seth, I know you've got a lot of trauma but WHY even as a thought would you want to go get help from Volcano of all people? Oh well.

 

Admittedly the mini did throw me for a loop concerning Tornado's secret identity since I thought it was public knowledge but the mini seems to imply folks don't know John Smith is Red tornado. Hmmm. Ah well. A cute ending in the end. I liked that Red Tornado getting robo relatives didn't make him force a choice between either his human family or them, though Volcano did try a bit.                           

Wait a sec...

None of the Reds got blown up in this issue? Asides Volcano? They're all in one piece? ANd setting out to find who they are... in one piece?

I guess the writers wanted to go against the DC tide and not create characters only to kill them off gruesomely (Geoff Johns is particularly apt at that - Bushido, Nemesis, etc.). If the reboot hadn't happened we probably could have seen the other "reds" pop up again.

Just because you've come to terms with who you are doesn't mean your collar won't block people's vision. Down in front!

I keep expecting Red Inferno to come back and kill some Teen Titans.

Sorry, not buying it.
"RT, the troubled and mentally vulnerable teenager is leaving to go look for help from the super villain who destroyed a city just to kill your family! You should stop him!"
"Nah, I feel like maybe that's for the best."
