We’ve already seen that the main Flash title will be crossing over with Batman in April/May, and have seen the other May solicitation for The Flash. Now Comics Alliance is reporting a May crossover between the Titans, Teen Titans, and Deathstroke books, called “The Lazarus Contract”. The name’s an obvious reference to the classic Deathstroke/Teen Titans story “The Judas Contract”, but this one will at least partly pivot around the original Wally West: apparently Deathstroke has learned that Wally’s return will help bring back his son Grant from the dead. And through this, the Titans and Teen Titans both get involved.

One wonders how Deathstroke will acquire speed, and what he’ll do with it. It’s no surprise to see him pursuing the Titans and Teen Titans to get what he wants, as he’s traditionally been one of their greatest enemies. So he’s a natural villain for the first meeting of the two Titans teams in the Rebirth era, and hopefully the crossover between the three books will feel properly organic.
