Fed up with her son, Mary West shuts down the TV. She gives Wally the credit card that came in the mail for him and kicks both boys out of the house.

Tommy and Tuppence Terror are at the Central City Mall at the same time as Wally and Superboy—the former two check out Gemini Gems, while the young heroes are at Forever Sixteen Suburban Outfitters.

Gotham City

Angry and impatient, Dick Grayson waits for Batman to come up with the solution he promised. Two-and-a-half of the three days have already gone by, and Batman spent most of them alone in the Batcave. Alfred reassures Dick that Batman will keep his word.

Central City
July 7, 10:13:16 CDT

Tommy and Tuppence Terror decide to rob Gemini Gems over a $2,000 necklace. They smash the casings and throw a security guard out of the window.

At Forever Sixteen, Superboy picks out a whole rack of identical black T-shirts with a red Superman logo when they hear the ruckus nearby. Disguising themselves with bandana face masks, Superboy and Kid Flash try to stop them. They appear to be evenly matched until the fight moves outside, and the Terror Twins are scared away by the sudden arrival of Flash and Superman. Superman chases after them, but Flash tells the two young heroes to go home and get some sleep, because Batman has made his decision.

Mount Justice
July 8, 08:05:16 EDT

Kid Flash, Robin, Aqualad and Superboy are brought to Mount Justice. Batman says that he will allow the young heroes to continue fighting the "good fight", as long as it is on League terms. Red Tornado will be their supervisor, Black Canary will be in charge of training, and Batman will deploy them on covert missions. The Justice League will handle obvious threats, but the five young heroes will operate on the sly. Robin is surprised at the number, and wonders who the fifth member will be.


A stopover is an interruption in a journey; it shows how the three days only hinted at in "Fireworks" passed for the Team.

  • Two scenes from the end of "Fireworks", the second episode of the TV series, are recreated in the comic: the scene shortly after the battle at Cadmus, in which the young heroes request to be allowed to continue putting their talents to good use; and the start of the final scene at Mount Justice, in which Batman tells them they will be formed into a team, but before the introduction of Miss Martian. The remainder of the comic takes place between these two scenes.
