Justice League: Cry for Justice #5 (January, 2010)

Donna Troy tagged along with her Titans bestie Koriand'r for a swim in her 52 co-star Buddy Baker's family pool. Buddy's son Cliff wanted to swim too, but wife Ellen argued, "Kory and her friend are out there, and it's always a gamble if Kory will have her clothes on.

Donna thanked Ellen. "You're being a very generous host. Letting us hang out here... catch up, away from all the craziness." Ellen basically said that Kory was always welcome, "And if you're a friend of hers, you're welcome too."

The doorbell rang, and outside Ellen found the blue-skinned Starman (Mikaal Tomas) and Buddy's old teammate in the Forgotten Heroes, Congorilla. After suffering personal injuries through the machinations of the villain Prometheus, the pair had begun working together to track him down. The trail having gone cold, they were now seeking help from former allies. Animal Man agreed to join them, so long as they were out for justice, not blood. Starfire had worked with Starman in the "Justice League of Aliens," so she was happy to help if needed. Donna added, "Need us or not, I'm in. This all speaks to something bigger that's brewing. I'm wondering if I should call in the Titans." Possibly, but in the meantime, the quintet paid a visit to the Justice League Satellite. It turned out to have already been infiltrated by Prometheus, who had severed the right arm of Donna's former lover, Roy Harper...

The fifth chapter of Cry For Justice, “The Lie” was by James Robinson, Mauro Cascioli, and Scott Clark.
