Stray as a teen former Teen Aegis. The team is made up of Rottweiller aka Stray, Quarrel, and Heavy Metal. The team of three work well together but they are still learning. These are teen heroes fairly new to the game. Certainly new to being on a team of teens. The team though does come across as a cheap version of the Teen Titans. There is some humor here but not much. The art is done well bringing across Stray as a street level hero. Than as a teen hero in the flashback. The adult super-heroes we see are presented as stern tough role models. Stray this issue starts out slow but the character is a good one and hopefully future issues will use his full potential.

A look back shows Rodney aka Stray at a school filled with super powers. Him and his partner are there undercover. The faces of the students in school are drawn elongated. The story moves along slowly and it focuses more on teen drama than super powered teens. The super powered teens at the school are shown but who they are and what their powers are is not gotten into enough. Plus of course the why? Stray or Quarrel as he was known at the time of this look back is a character that could be used better and if so he could be great.
