So these are the last two issues of Titans, by Eric Wallace and Travis Moore. After the Flashpoint reboot, Ryan Choi will be alive again and Lian will apparently have never been born, so I don't know how much of this will be sticking.

Deathstroke uses the Methuselah Device to cure the dying Jericho.

Osiris asks if the machine could restore Adam as well. Slade says he doesn't know, but he thinks it's worth finding out.

Ink, Jade, and Osiris want to use the machine. Roy and Cinder don't.

Titans #38 begins with Ray Palmer meeting with Ryan Choi's girlfriend, Amanda, before his funeral. It's revealed that's she's recently given birth to their son, Ichiro.

Slade's reasoning doesn't really make any sense; it's not like his Titans were a public superhero team using the name of its heroes like the Dark Avengers.

Roy punches Slade, saying he's nothing like him and that he's realized the ideal Slade's been trying to corrupt is still important to him, which is why he'll be leading the Titans from now on. Slade kicks him and tells him to "keep your damn team, Roy. I've had enough of you all."

Cinder flies into the Methuselah Device, causing a plasma annihilation reaction with its heart. Osiris grabs Sivana and flies out. The others prepare to leave, though Deathstroke is missing.

Jade tries to stay behind, asking Roy what good is living without Lian.

Roy shakes his hand. "How about we take it one day at a time?"

Ray speaks at Ryan's funeral.

"Crazy town."

And that's it; the series is over. While it wasn't the greatest series, I'm glad Osiris never became an evil villain like I had feared. He generally remained a sympathetic character, at worst being an idiot for trusting Slade (though who knows, maybe the Methuselah device would have restored Adam?).  I just hope the Black Marvel Family will still be around post-Flashpoint.

Yeah Roy's "Okay, I'm all better now" was a serious "HUNH?" moment.

Yeah, it was like, "Oh, I can have her back? Really? The only thing that made my life worth living -- I can have that back? ... Eh, no thanks. I'm good."

That wasn't even the part I was thinking of (though that is as bad) Given that Roy has been on an emotional plummet for over a year now, including, it would seem, frequent addictive drug use, he's suddenly thinking clearly and fluently, with a positive mission statement? Seems improbable at least.
