The storyline in Superboy comics, written by Scott Lobdell, in the new DCU, has been building up since the first issue to a showdown between the title character and the young superpowered types known in their own book as the Teen Titans, with Superboy working for a shady quasi-governmental group known as Project N.O.W.H.E.R.E., a name that should not inspire loyalty in any universe, but I guess the writer wanted no doubts as to their nefariousness. Pegged as the most powerful of the rogue youths by the Project (or possibly the one that would hold Superboy's interest), Cassie(Wonder Girl)Sandsmark is tracked down by the young clone on New Year's Eve.
Meanwhile the other targeted teens are getting a chance to bond, beginning with Kiran and Miguel:
Conveniently enough, the battle will take place in the also-Lobdell-written Superboy, which is annoying if the reader isn't purchasing that book as well, but that's the comics business! More next month!(Art by Brett Booth)
