If I had written Titans#4....
Beast Boy: "I gotta say -- I really didn't see this coming. Did you guys see this coming?"
Donna Troy: "No."
Flash: "I don't think any of us did."
Nightwing: "Well, I did! In fact, I was prepared for SIX HUNDRED FIFTY of those Trigon brats showing up here. Not only that, but I had devised THREE HUNDRED strategies to beat them, TWENTY-TWO of which involve only a can coolie, a roll of duct dape, and a bag of oregano! And you want to know WHY? Because I was trained by the GODDAMN BATMAN!!!!!"
That's how I would have done it.
