Robin is first seen alongside Batman fighting Mr. Freeze in a Gotham City park. Soon afterward, he along with Aqualad, Speedy and Kid Flash receive a tour of the Hall of Justice, the Justice League's faux headquarters. But Speedy soon informs them of the real headquarters: the Watchtower, an orbiting satellite and voices his distaste of being treated like a sidekick. Soon after Speedy's departure, the young heroes decide to infiltrate Project Cadmus where they uncover the hidden genomorph project. They then investigate Project Kr (chemical symbol for the element krypton) and discover a pod containing Superboy whom they release and end up being captured by.
Mark Desmond is advised by Cadmus' board of directors to clone and dispose of the heroes, thereby safeguarding their hidden activities from being known by the public and gaining spies close to the Justice League. As the cloning process is being administered, Superboy arrives and frees the heroes for the four of them to make their escape. Robin out smarts Mark Desmond which gives them a head start. After they make it to the top floor, they are confronted by Desmond, who mutates himself into the villain Blockbuster who tries to stop them from escaping. During the battle, Robin has the heroes destroy the pillars supporting the ground facility of Cadmus, collapsing the building on themselves and Blockbuster. After the battle, the young heroes confront their mentors about the way they have been treated and demand a change. Soon after, Batman gives the heroes their own headquarters in Mount Justice and introduces them to their fifth member: Miss Martian.
