Success! The Titans finally got their movie and all the fame and glamor that went with it. But are they doomed to wallow after their 15 minutes of fame are over?

Scooby and the gang have faced yetis on distant mountain peaks before… but on a fitness center’s climbing wall in the middle of the city?! Our heroes will have to scale the heights to get to the bottom of the mystery of the Abominable Indoor Snowman – if they can conquer Shaggy’s fear of heights, that is.

The Challengers tackle undead barbarians and a zombie-dinosaur stampede way down under in otherworldly Skartaris. Good thing they find that flock of pterodactyls, too-turns out to be handy against rogue agents setting up a super-weapon! Unfortunately, the Challengers also find their HQ destroyed and their predecessors missing. Plus, their borrowed time might be up, because the hourglass tattoos are on the fritz. All in a day’s work for the Challengers! (Face palm!)

Then, the fate of the world hangs in the balance as Starro and the Red Lanterns head toward Earth bent on destruction. Beetle, Booster and the Titans are in hot pursuit. Following close behind is Lobo, armed with a weapon that may ultimately do more harm than good.
