"The Fifth Titan"
*Frustrated in his efforts to be accepted by the Doom Patrol, Beast Boy tries out for the Teen Titans only to find that being underage, he cannot join either team without his guardian's permission. Unwilling to share his secret identity with his guardian Nicholas Galtry, Gar becomes disgruntled. He joins a carnival run by Baltzer unaware that the crooked animal-trainer and his hypnotist henchman are using him as part of a scheme to rob their audiences. Investigating, the Teen Titans disguise themselves as an acrobatic team called the Masked Mazeppas and join Baltzer's troupe in order to uncover evidence against him. When their true identities are revealed, the Titans are forced to battle a hypnotized Beast Boy in his many animal forms. They eventually break Gar's trance and team up to stop Baltzer. *Source: Official Teen Titans Index #1 - Published by ICG
