The Teen Titans watch a robbery in progress. As soon as the three men successfully break into the pawn shop, Roy Harper, Mal Duncan, and Wally West move in to confront them. After overpowering West, one of the men, Kevin Murphy, flees. Racing into traffic, Murphy runs headlong into a passing automobile. The next day, on assignment from Mister Jupiter, the Teen Titans approach Hargood P. Tout, regarding a charitable donation. Tout, angrily throws them out of his office.
Upon seeing the news that Murphy, long thought dead, is still alive, Tout becomes even more enraged. A pair of assassins arrive at the hospital, to kill Murphy. The Teen Titans, checking in on Murphy, encounter the assassins. Donna Troy & Lilith Clay beat the assassins into unconsciousness. Questioning Murphy about the incident, Murphy accuses Tout of sending the assassins. Over a decade ago, Murphy and Tout pulled a successful bank heist, and escaped clean.
Tout invested his share of the loot, becoming one of the most respected businessmen in the city. Two years later, he began sending men out to kill Murphy. Murphy faked his own death, in an arson fire. It's worth more to Tout to keep his pristine reputation as a hard worker who rose from nothing, than risk Murphy revealing the truth about him. The Teen Titans realize they'll never get a donation out of Tout, now that he'll be needing his money to hire a good legal defense team.
