Issue #2 - Heir Apparent

While Blue Lantern and Omega Knight sought for the source of Toymaster’s experiment (which will help defeat the super-powered tyrants), Terra worked alongside her brother Geo-Force to prepare to expose and humiliate the very first tyrant, who also happens to be the one who betrayed their family in the behalf of Vandal Savage and Slade: their other brother Gregor Markov.

Issue #3 - Blue Hope Valentine

Since she learned of Superman’s whereabouts after the battle with Ares’ forces in Athens, Wonder Woman became a calmer and more optimistic fighter who turns her foes’ rages into their greatest weaknesses.

Issue #4 - The Way of All Flesh

While the Justice League were busy with random threats and Terra was banding together her team, Lois Lane was at the time given by Lex Luthor a membership in his business empire's community, which she refused. Arrogantly reluctant to take No for answer, Luthor once threatened hers and her daughter's lives by hiring Metallo to capture and hurt them, but Luthor and Metallo were the ones in trouble when they learned that Lois was given her own bodyguard: not Superman or Supergirl, but someone else far stronger than Metallo... and also immune to Kryptonite. Along with her origin story, this issue also reveals more details about Caitlin Fairchild's loyalty to Lois as well as her faith and trust in Superman.

Issue #7 - Rao's Rage

After losing his place in the great U.S.A. Community following the Justice League's battle with the Reach, Lex Luthor attempted to win back the world leaders' trust by inaugurating a new "community research facility" (actually another weapon arsenal factory with protocols to needlessly use against the superheroes) in the top of a mountain in a abandoned island. But Terra and her team had other plans to destroy his image. Which would humiliate Luthor in front of a entire crowd and set his new creation... in flames!

Issue #8 - Overcome Fear

Following the first step of the Knights of Rao’s hunt for tyrants, Lex Luthor, desperate to stop them from trying to destroy his reputation and unable to rely on the superheroes’ assistance, enlisted the Teen Titans’ archenemy Slade for help with the situation. But the Knights of Rao’s young leader was more than just ready… as the one eyed evil mastermind was soon going to discover.

Issue #9 - Old Faces

Regarding the arrests of numerous tyrants across the world and Luthor's expulsion from the National Community, Batgirl visited the Teen Titans in the purpose to know if they had any knowledge about the Knights of Rao. The Titans were at the time unfamiliar with the new heroes... but they knew the Knights' leader. While the Titans and Batgirl talked about the situation and fought some of their old foes, the Knights of Rao took a break off their Tyrant Hunting Season for a relaxing evening while Terra visited another good friend of hers and shared with that friend the lessons she learned with her mentor.

Filled with higher confidence following their encounter with Lois Lane, the Knights of Rao decided to trust in the Justice League's help with their goal to bring tyrants to justice. While the two superhero factions work together to overcome new threats, Harley Quinn tried everything to help with the Joker's seemly impossible recovery from the Knights of Rao's attack on him. But what price did she have to pay for helping the psychopath who never loved anything but himself? The answer could only be found by Red Hood. But did he grant Harley that answer for what she and the Joker committed together?

Issue #12 - The Ocean Book

Following her happy reunion with her childhood heroine Wonder Woman, Terra befriended a young girl who developed a special connection with the ocean and the orcas.
