This is all on Dick and his plan. He had to know that if anyone got a chance to take down Aqualad they were going to and they were going to do it hard. It actually a good thing it was MM and not Superboy because he might have beaten Aqualad half to death or worse. Like Gamer said Dick was trying to be Batman and screwed up and now two of his friends are a mess. I am wondering how its going to go down when Superboy finds out one of his "best" friends didn't trust him.
