Comic readers love to debate which hero or villain is the strongest, but physical strength doesn't;t always make one more powerful than another. As an example, we can look at DC Comics' current Teen Titans team. Sure, Crush (Lobo's teenage daughter) is able to prevent Robin, Kid Flash and the rest from being, well, crushed under the debris of a fallen building, but when it comes to actually saving her new teammates, the half-Czarnian's abilities fall short.
Robin can't get the young heroes out of this predicament, nor can Roundhouse, and Kid Flash's powers would likely only make the situation worse. This time, the team needs the help of one of its missing members, Djinn. A new addition to the DC Universe, Djinn is a hero with magic-based powers, who may be an actual genie. Not only can she fly, shape-shift and literally possess other beings (among other powers), the immortal Djinn is also able to teleport herself and others. In other words, she's the perfect solution to the Titans' current problem -- if Crush can hold out until Damian is able to contact her, that is.
