The most disappointing element of the tale is how brief the roles of Bart Allen and Cassie Sandsmark are. Indeed, the resolution to the crossover with the Titans and Teen Titans all happens early on, and the story is more concerned with the aftermath of those events.
Fortunately, the aftermath is interesting enough to carry the rest of the tale, and whatever irritation I felt about the small roles of the former Young Justice members was smoothed over by the quality of the later scenes.
And I will use that as a tidy segue to pointing out the quality of the art. I am not an artist, not in any way, and I wish I was better able to express why I like and dislike various works. Sadly, I am usually just confined to stating “yes, I loved it,” or “no, I didn’t.” This issue gets a big yes.
Superman and Batman play important roles in the aftermath, but the events of the storyline have clearly served to bond their sons even more strongly. At the moment, neither father is certain that’s the best thing.
Towards the end of the story the Teen Titans vote on admitting Superboy. That does not go the way I had expected, but it’s well written, and the motivations for the votes makes sense.
So this doesn’t go the way I had thought it would, but I am not at all bothered by that.
