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 animated series, Terra was a girl who had trouble controlling her powers and was brought on by Slade to betray the team, but ultimately she turned on him and was going to join the forces of good before she got turned to stone and and reappeared in 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 sociopath and a sadist, and she was 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 nuts and basically killed herself in her rage, buried under a pile of earth that she had created. Oh yeah, and she also slept with Deathstroke. I did mention she was fourteen years old, right?
