Synopsis for "The Insiders, Part I of IV"
Superboy is at odds with the notion that the human elements of his cloned DNA were culled from Lex Luthor. For weeks now, he has been growing concerned that he may have inherited a portion of Luthor's corruptive influence. Suddenly, a signal goes off in his head and he shaves himself bald and carves the letter L into his shirt. Red energy begins seeping out of his eyes.
Like a zombie, Superboy lumbers downstairs. Without saying a word, he attacks the rest of the Titans. His teammates try to restrain him, but they are greatly outclassed. It quickly becomes obvious that Superboy is no longer in control of himself. He flashes Raven with an intense burst of heat vision and tears Cyborg into pieces. He then throws Cassie outside and slams her viciously into a tree. Robin tries to contain Superboy, but Conner breaks Robin’s arm. Broken and bleeding, Robin calls for help. He calls the Outsiders.
At the Outsiders HQ, the team receives Robin’s message. Suddenly, Indigo goes berserk and turns on the group. She declares herself to be Brainiac 8.
