This is from Titans #28 by Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino.

The Titans are hired to break the Mad Hatter out of Arkham. A guard is helping them sneak in in exchange for money.

Slade leaves Osiris alone with the guard, telling him to make sure they have an escape route. While they're alone, Osiris asks the guard why he's helping them.

The lightning hits the guard's remote, setting all the inmates free.

Meanwhile, Ray Palmer is helping Ryan Choi's girlfriend Amanda look for him.

Never much liked, or got the point to, the Marvel/Black Adam family.

The Marvel Family (the "good" ones) have a very clear appeal (one that sold millions in the 40s/50s) - old fashioned wish fulfillment. Ordinary kids next door types (to the point where Mary Marvel was originally modeled after young Judy Garland) are granted literally god-like powers (and age to adult when they do so) which enables them to defeat aliens, evil scientists and Nazis.

The Black Adam Family was supposed to be the flip-side. But because people at DC (aka Geoff Johns and Dan Didio) love Black Adam and love blood/gore and darkness, Black Adam has suddenly become the main Marvel and Billy, Mary, Freddy have faded - which dilutes the whole premise of the franchise's mythos in the first place.

Yeah but they were created in order to be killed so Black Adam would get all angsty and go all genocidal and start a World War. Seriously that was originally their whole point. Later on they brought Isis back and she killed people and now they've brought Osiris back and HE'S killing people. This is what DC thinks of the Marvel Family franchise.
