The first task is complete... master. The message has been sent. The inscriptions are in place, she knows what she must do. The Prophecy will be fulfilled.
TRIGON
Then the world of mortals shall be ended.

So who's the bad guy for the day? Gizmo, Mad Mod, Killer Moth?
STARFIRE
The reports say there's an intruder.
BEAST BOY
Well, whoever it is, we're totally going to kick their...
ROBIN PUPPET
[sees Slade] No!
SLADE
It's been a long time, hasn't it, Titans? A month, a year, a millennium? Far too long for my tastes anyway. I was beginning to think I'd never see you again!
CYBORG DECOY
You! How did you survive?
BEAST BOY
Terra took you down! Way down!
ROBIN PUPPET
Slade! I don't know where you've been but you shouldn't have come back! I'm still ready.
SLADE
That's touching Robin. But I didn't come back for you.

SLADE
Hello, Terra. Remember me?

SLADE
Only a minor set back. Nothing two old friends can't handle.
ROBIN PUPPET
I am not your friend.

SLADE
Hurry, young Titans, you're running out of time.
ROBIN PUPPET
[the door explodes and Robin enters] Actually we just went into overtime.

ROBIN PUPPET
[wondering what Slade's motives were for helping Trigon take over the world] So, why did you do it? For money? Status? Those dark powers?
SLADE
Not everything is so... cut-and-dry, Robin.
ROBIN PUPPET
Selling out our world for your own personal gain seems pretty cut-and-dry to me.
SLADE
With or without me, there was no stopping this.
ROBIN PUPPET
But you played a part; And just like everything else you've ever done, it's made people suffer.
SLADE
It's what I do best.

SLADE
Who knows... I could become like a father to you.
ROBIN PUPPET
I already have a father. [Bats fly off and Batman music plays]

You cannot hope to defeat pure evil.
SLADE
Actually, I'm not such a nice guy myself.

ROBIN PUPPET
Slade. We're ready for you.
SLADE
Give me the girl!
ROBIN PUPPET
No way!
SLADE
You don't really have a choice. I'm taking her.
BEAST BOY
Oh, yeah? You and what army? [an army of fire creatures appear and then Beast Boy screams]
CYBORG DECOY
You just had to ask, didn't you?
