Synopsis for "Teambuilding Exercises"

Day 1:
In Metropolis, Natasha Irons begs Lex Luthor to let her friend Eliza Harmon back on his newly formed superteam, claiming that Eliza has stopped taking the drug Sharp. When he agrees, Natasha tells Eliza, who is elated. She hopes to eventually join the Teen Titans and become the new Kid Flash.

Day 2:
Ralph Dibny, along with the Helmet of Nabu, has entered the Netherplains. Ralph feeds the demon Xolotl a dose of gingold while it sleeps and ties its body into a knot, refusing to free the beast unless it grants him access to the Underworld. It reluctantly agrees, warning Ralph about the dangers he will face in the journey ahead.

Day 3:
Luthor has carefully crafted the media debut of his super-hero team under its new name, Infinity, Inc. The six young heroes, Fury, Nuklon, Skyman, Everyman, Starlight, and Trajectory, are to defeat the new Blockbuster in Las Vegas. They are successful, but are approached by the Teen Titans, who question the use of the Infinity, Inc. team name and begin cleaning up. While the two teams exchange words, Blockbuster manages to free himself, and Trajectory rushes off to stop him. However, Luthor shuts off her powers in the middle of the fight, and she is killed.

Day 6:
In Manchester, Alabama, Trajectory's funeral is attended by members of both teams. John Henry Irons also attends, hoping to reach out to his niece, but she tells him to leave her alone. Beast Boy asks John if there is anything the Titans can do to help him.

Day 7:
In Australia, a young mechanic named Johnny Warrawa has pieced together a very rough new android body for the head of Red Tornado.


  • This issue shipped on September 27th, 2006.
  • This issue is unusual for 52 in that it does not include a backup feature.
  • A character who appears on the cover of this issue does not seem to appear within it; he is presently unidentified. On the cover, he appears in the left-middle golden shard. The other six characters in the shards are the Teen Titans who appear in this issue.
  • The character of Gerome McKenna is given the name Nuklon here; however, in Week 9, Starlight calls him "Herakles". This can be read as either an early code name that did not stick or, as indicated by rough-sketch promotional materials, the original name that 52's writers assigned to him.


  • No trivia.
