     Joto / Hotspot

AKA: Isiah Crockett
Abilities: Flight, Generating and sensing heat.

Formerly known as Joto, he is an human-alien hybrid with the ability to sense & generate heat. His physique has drastically altered and he has taken on the name Hot Spot.

  • Back from the Dead: Coupled with Heroic Sacrifice. He dies saving the team during volume 2, but is reanimated by the H'San N'tall to fight against his team of Titans. He's fully resurrected by the end of run, thanks to Prysm helping restore his mind and soul to make him remember who he was.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: His biological father was one of the H'San N'Tall aliens, which caused him to gain his ability to generate heat.
  • Playing with Fire: Isaiah possessed the ability to generate intense thermal energy from his hands. In appearance, the power was very similar to pyrokinesis, but he could not generate actual flame. However, Isaiah's heat generation could quickly cause combustible materials to catch fire.
  • Ret-Canon: Suddenly began sporting the look and powerset of his animated counterpart (outright fire instead of heat) during the 52 mini-series and later cameos. His name was also changed to "Hotspot" as "Joto" (though meaning "heat" in Swahili) is a derogatory term for homosexuals in Spanish.


AKA: Audrey Spears
Abilities: Made of living crystal, flight, refracts light as a crystal.

Prysm is a half-human half-H'San Natall member of the Teen Titans. Able to capture and reflect light, she later departed to space with fellow Titan Fringe.

  • All There in the Manual: According to Dan Jurgens and early promotional material for volume 2, her real name is "Audrey Spears". This is never brought up in the series itself, where she's usually referred to her by her codename or the nickname "Prys".
  • Flight: As an extended application of her energy processing powers, Prysm can fly through the force generated by the energy that she absorbs.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: The most obvious case of the four Titans in Jurgens' run. She never got to see her actual appearance until she was freed from her deprivation tank, and only wished she looked fully human. Even so, she opts to stay in space with her alien father and her mother (who was taken as a queen to the species) by the end.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Prefers to go around naked most of the time due to her crystalline nature, but sometimes will wear clothing as a civilian.
  • Light The Way: Her crystalline body structure allows her to capture and project light.
  • Logical Weakness: Audrey must consistently absorb solar radiation or else her physical form will darken and she will grow extremely weak.


AKA: Cody Driscoll
Abilities: Super Senses, enhanced reflexes, strength and durability

Risk is a human/alien hybrid who received his powers on his 16th birthday.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Got one arm torn off by Superboy Prime during Infinite Crisis. Got the other torn off again by Superboy Prime in another event.
  • Dumb Muscle: Downplayed — he's got Super Strength and Super Toughness, but is impulsive and tends to not think things through. Exaggerated after Infinite Crisis, where during a theft on a local store he tells the Native American store owner to "Go Back to India".
  • Face–Heel Turn: In Teen Titans Volume 3. After he lost his arm in Infinite Crisis, he was basically forgotten by the Titans until Slade found him and forcefully recruited him for Titans East.
  • Healing Factor: He breaks his leg during an adventure in Skartaris and it heals much faster than expected.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Due to his actual father being of the H'San N'Tall.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: When Geoff Johns brought the character back after his brief appearance in Infinite Crisis as one of the Titans, Risk has turned into an addict who robs people, forgotten just about completely by the Titans, with no arm, still living in a trailer park. A vast change from the original version of the character.
  • It's Personal: Averted and Discussed with Cyborg after his Face–Heel Turn; he's got no grudge against Cyborg in particular, but he could really use a punching bag and Cyborg's available.
  • The Needless: Risk can operate at full capacity for extended periods of time without tiring. He is also physically healthier than a normal human being and his biology can withstand exposure to viruses or poisons.
  • Super Reflexes: Risk's reaction time is many times greater than the average human being.
