Sterling Gates' four issue team-up arc featuring the young heroes who have stepped into the breach during the absence of the apparently dead Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent, off on New Krypton keeping an eye on Zod.
Everybody loves a good team-up but this collection just isn't as fun as it should have been. The new Kryptonian Nightwing and Red Robin kick off the show taking on the Kryptonite Man and, contrary to the back cover synopsis, The Penguin. The erroneously billed Mr Freeze doesn't turn up until the following issue, with his new side-kick The Toyman matching up against Guardian and Robin. Supergirl and Batgirl pick up the baton for the penultimate issue before the grand finale team-up of the Dick Grayson Batman and Supes. Considering the line up and that giant composite robot, there really should have been enough going on to have some real fun but it never really sparks. Gates finishes off by including a couple of classic issues that inspired him to write this book: a nifty Geoff Johns character piece showcasing The Toyman and a Dick Grayson Robin and Superman team-up by the team-up meister himself Gerry Conway. Gates' issues don't stand up too favourably compared to either.
