Season 4 of Titans kicks off from where Season 3 ended. The Titans are having a good time at a bowling Alley. Suddenly Dick gets a call from Bruce Banner, who informs him that Superman wants to meet Conner Kent. He also told him that STAR labs could also help the rest of the Titans polish their powers. However, unfortunately, Superman left for an emergency before the heroes’ arrival, leaving a note for Conner.
After exploring the lab, when the Titans were leaving Metropolis, Lex contacted them, asking Conner to meet him. Everyone gets suspicious about his plan, so Starfire approaches Lex, where she spies on him, due to which Tim and Dick are able to hack his computer system. However, nobody can make a fool of him, so he sends some ninjas after Tim and Drake.

Suddenly, he coughs blood, and from his mouth, a giant snake pops out. When the snake moves toward Conner, the superboy killed it. However, he gets arrested for murdering Lex while sitting beside the lifeless body.
