Synopsis for "The Fifth Titan"

The Beast Boy once more makes an attempt to try and convince the Doom Patrol that he is worthy of their membership by using his shape changing powers to try and trip them up. All he succeeds in doing is annoying the Patrol members who once more reject his request for membership with the group. Since he has once more been rejected by the Doom Patrol, Beast Boy decides instead to try and get membership with the Teen Titans, sending out a message to the group to meet with him.

Revealing his identity as Gar Logan, Beast Boy explains to them that the Doom Patrol has refused him membership because he cannot get his guardians consent to join the group and hopes the Titans will take him him. Robin regretfully informs him that the Teen Titans also operate in the same fashion and that he'd still need parental permission to get into the group. Once more rejected, Gar calls himself a freak and angrily flees the scene. Later he comes across a truck owned by animal trainer Baltzer the Beast Master, who's hit bad times and cannot afford to buy decent animals. Hoping to make use of his powers, Beast Boy reveals himself to Baltzer who agrees to make him part of his show.

As expected, with Beast Boy a member of the circus Baltzer's act becomes a hit and Beast Boy gains the recognition he craves. However, things are not all well at the circus as Baltzer is less than on the level and has his mystic Vorna hypnotize Beast Boy into becoming a rare Albino Baboon that has mesmerism powers and is able to put the entire audience into their thrall and allow the circus to steal all their possessions. They then send out the crowd to loot the nearby town for them before restoring Gar back to normal, Gar has no memory of the incident and Baltzer exploits the boys feelings of acceptance.

Meanwhile, the Teen Titans are called in to deal with the hypnotized masses and learn that they are under a hypnotic spell. Snapping the crowd out of it, they note that the circus troupe which Beast Boy has joined up with is in town and find it a little convenient. Disguising themselves as acrobats known as the Masked Mazeppas and get hired by Baltzer who is none-the-wiser that they are really the Teen Titans in disguise. When Baltzer and Vorna try the same attempt the Titans hide in an safe used by an escape artist so that they are immune to its effects. However, Baltzer, having grown suspicious of the Titans over hears them and traps them in the safe and commands Beast Boy to toss the safe into a pool of water.

However, the Titans manage to get free when Kid Flash vibrates through the wall of the safe with Aqualad who breaks open the safe so that Wonder Girl and Robin can escape. Baltzer and Vorna send the hypnotized Beast Boy against the Teen Titans. Baltzer inadvertently brings about his own defeat when he tries to enter the fight. Launching himself out of a cannon and spinning torches in his hands, the spinning flames snaps Gar out of his hypnosis and he easily captures Baltzer and Vorna, who are fail to command the audience to forget what happened and they are turned over to the police.

Afterwards, the Titans realize that Gar was exploited because nobody accepted him and debate on if they should wave the parental consent clause in their membership, however instead of making a decision the Teen Titans appeal to the readers and ask them to write in and make the decision for them.
