Fictional character biography

First Disruptor

Michael Beldon is the son of "Brains" Beldon, a criminal genius that had tangled with H.I.V.E. and to prove himself, he created a high-tech costume that could disrupt the natural flow/order of things. Michael constantly sought his father's approval and, in a bid to earn the respect of his father, wore the costume and called himself the Disruptor.

At the H.I.V.E.'s request, the Disruptor hunted down the members of the Changeling and Wonder Girl with his disruption powers. Kid Flash himself was captured by the Disruptor and his father, "Brains" Beldon. The Titans counter-attacked, only to have the Disruptor turn their own powers against them, until he was defeated by Raven's soul-self.

Upon his defeat, the H.I.V.E. rescinded their offer to "Brains" Beldon. Michael went to jail, taking the rap for his father. Nonetheless, his father rebuffed him, leaving Michael devastated.

Some time later, Wildebeest sprang Black Trident, Gizmo, Puppeteer, and Disruptor from jail. These villains were eventually recaptured by the Titans (New Teen Titans, vol. 2, #41-42 (1988)). The Disruptor resurfaced later to battle Arsenal's team of Titans; he was defeated once again (Titans Secret Files #1, 1999).

Second Disruptor

A new Disruptor appeared in Teen Titans #56 as a part of the Terror Titans. Her civilian name is Angelica, and her suit was given to her by Clock King, who brought her in from a dilapidated group home, and with whom she is having a sexual relationship. [1] Angelica believes that she is the daughter of the original Disruptor (this is later revealed as a lie told to her by Clock King). [2] She was found in a trash can as a baby, and growing up had a violently irrational hatred for other females. She was once taken in by adoptive parents, but later killed her adoptive mother, feeling that she was competition for the adoptive father's affections. She was put into prison soon afterward.[3] Angelica has gained a particular hatred for Ravager, amplified by Clock King's fascination for the former Teen Titan, and his growing disdain for herself. Subsequently, Angelica has tried to have Ravager killed several times, but failed each time. When Clock King puts his plan of destroying Los Angeles in motion, Ravager attempted to stop him, leading Angelica and the Terror Titans to attack her.[4] Ravager manages to turn the tables and use Angelica as a hostage, at the same time Miss Martian freed Clock King's army of brainwashed metahumans, forcing the Terror Titans to retreat. Clock King punished Angelica for her failure by killing her, using her own suit to incinerate her body.[5]

Powers and abilities

While wearing his high-tech suit, the Disruptor has the ability to "disrupt" the natural flow of things. This includes stopping electrical power and other forms of energy, as well as disrupting super-powers. The Disruptor has no natural super powers.
