1->''Those of you familiar with the animated series are most likely in the know about the tragedy of the character of Terra... but things were a bit different in the comics. In the [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans animated series]], Terra was a girl who had trouble controlling her powers and was brought on by [[ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} Slade]] to betray the team, but ultimately she turned on him and was going to join the forces of good before she got [[HeroicSacrifice turned to stone]] and and reappeared in [[MandatoryTwistEnding one of the most frustrating and annoying finales in a kid's show]]. In the comics, Terra was a monster... plain and simple. She was a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] and a {{sadist}}, and she was [[TeensAreMonsters only fourteen years old]]. She played with the emotions of the Titans, and happily betrayed them to Deathstroke and the H.I.V.E., learning all their weaknesses and even their secret identities. When she thought that Deathstroke had turned on her, she went [[AxCrazy nuts]] and basically [[SelfDisposingVillain killed herself]] in her [[UnstoppableRage rage]], buried under a pile of earth that she had created. Oh yeah, and she also slept with Deathstroke. I did mention she was [[{{Squick}} fourteen years old, right?]]''-->--'''[[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]''', on [[Comicbook/TeenTitans Terra]] in ''March of the Titans: Team History, Part 1''->'''Piccolo:''' I'm here to help.\'''Goku:''' [[LampshadeHanging Aren't we enemies?]]\'''Piccolo:''' [[SequelDisplacement Nobody watched ''Dragon Ball''.]]-->--''[[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged Dragon Ball Z Kai Abridged Episode 1]]''->''"Like Slider from "Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}".
