Cruel And Unusual Punishment In The Final Issue Of Teen Titans (SPOILERS)

***SPOILERS ***SPOILERS ***SPOILERS ***SPOILERS ***SPOILERS ***SPOILERS ***

In the final issue of Teen Titans before the relaunch, issue 100 out today, we see the conclusion of, well, pretty much every storyline. And specifically the life and times of Superboy Prime. Just as he was responsible for punching reality and causing all sorts of continuity amends and subsequent headaches, so this time reality punches him, in the form of the Teen Titans and leaves him, well, out for the count rather.

But it's his punishment that seems rather cruel and unusual. As we've seen, capital punishmnt is beyond the Teen Titans. Hell, they can't even order a beer, condemning one of their peers seems a bit much. So how do the creative team decide to conclude this final history before relaunch reboot and the Teen Titans slate get wiped clean, getting Superboy permanetly out of the way?

Crucifixion.
