The Recombatants are a team of scientifically created superheroes created by Dayton Labs. They were considered to be failures, as the scientists had found a way to improve upon their design.
When the Recombatants did not want to be destroyed, they escaped. The Titans were called in to track them down, with the excuse being that they were 'murderous experiments gone wrong', but the Titans find out the truth and befriend the Recombatants and try to defend them. After finding out more of them were going to be made, they decided to destroy the lab and the research, taking themselves out in the process to ensure that no more like them would be made by such evil people.
The team was likely created to cover several the bases of superpowers, one strong invulnerable member, one energy blaster, one illusion controller and one shapechanger.
The Recombatants story was done as an unofficial crossover with Eclipse's DNAgents, in a similar manner to the Invaders / Freedom Fighters crossover of the 1970s, where both wartime teams had in the same month in their respective comics encountered a group called the Crusaders (Marvel's / DC's) whose members were thinly veiled analogues of the other company's team. In this instance, the Recombatants matched to the DNAgents, both in name and appearance: Dreadnaught was Tank, Pseudos was Sham, Topaz was Amber and Aurora was Rainbow. Meanwhile, the same month, the DNAgents encountered Project: Youngblood, whose members were Roboto (Cyborg), Black Owl (Nightwing), Celestia (Starfire), Amazing Girl (Wonder Girl) and Heartstring (Jericho). In both comics the plots mirrored one anothers: the Teen Titans / Project Youngblood were asked by Dayton Labs / Matrix Incorporated to recapture the Recombatants / DNAgents, the teams fought but then the Titans / Youngblood realized they'd been duped and their targets were not the villains they'd been painted as, and the teams combined forces to stop a nuclear meltdown, with one team (Youngblood in DNAgents / Recombatants in Teen Titans) sacrificing their life to prevent disaster.
