Synopsis for "Kidnapped!"
In the midst of official investigations into the Titans' battle with Brother Blood and his cult, Starfire is affected by a Gordanian mental probe and goes wild. She is then taken captive by the Gordanian slavers under the command of her renegade sister, Princess Kornand'r. After battling the aliens, the other Teen Titans, with the help of Aqualad, restore and commandeer two Gordanian ships and follow their foes to their orbiting mother ship. There they are overcome by robotic drones and hurled into space, where Raven's soul-self sustains them until they can be rescued by Superman who uses a tractor beam from the Justice League satellite. However, Superman is unable to aid the Titans' rescue mission, since his powers were halved (as seen in Action Comics 534-541) by magical enemies, and the Gordanians escape with Starfire.
