The New Teen Titans – The Judas Contract
"The Judas Contract" was a four-part storyline originally printed in issues #42-44 of Tales of the Teen Titans and concluded in the 1984 Tales of the Teen Titans Annual. The story was written and edited by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez with artwork by Pérez, Romeo Tanghal, Dick Giordano, Mike DeCarlo and Adrienne Roy. Lettering was provided by Ben Oda, Bob La, John Costanza and Todd Klein. All four issues were collected in the 1988 New Teen Titans: The Judas Contract trade paperback. Amongst readers, this storyline is often times cited as the pinnacle of Wolfman and Pérez' run on the title. "The Judas Contract" is the culmination of a sub-plot that began as early as New Teen Titans #2 with the introduction of the Terminator and the H.I.V.E.
 
History (slight spoilers)
"The Judas Contract" is significant for several reasons. Firstly, it reveals the secret origin of Deathstroke the Terminator, arguably the Titans' most notorious adversary. It also brings to a close the Terminator's extended contract with the H.I.V.E. The destruction of the H.I.V.E. is revealed soon after in a follow-up story which takes place in Tales of the Teen Titans #45-47. Deathstroke's partner in crime in this epic, Terra, was introduced in the pages of New Teen Titans #26. She made regular appearances throughout the title and had just been approved for membership to the team when it was revealed that she was secretly working for the Terminator. One of the more controversial elements revealed in this story was the fact that the Terminator and Terra had been having a sexual affair with one another (it should be noted that while the Terminator is obviously a middle-aged man, Terra is only sixteen-years-old). "The Judas Contract" is also noted for the introduction of Deathstroke's ex-wife, Adeline, but more importantly, it introduces his second son Joey Wilson. Immediately following the events of "The Judas Contract", Joey Wilson adopts the code name Jericho and becomes a regular member of the Teen Titans. Adeline Kane remains a stable supporting character and has made frequent appearances in both New Teen Titans (Volume 2) and Teen Titans Spotlight. In addition, this storyline presents the first appearance of Dick Grayson under his new costume and code-name Nightwing. With the legacy of Robin forever behind him, he maintained the Nightwing identity until recently becoming Batman.
 
 
Enjoy!

Probably my favorite Titans story.  And the reason I will only steal DC's cartoon movies, never pay for them until they make right and do this story in cartoon form like they originally said they would.
