Prysm is a DC Comics fictional superhero. She first appeared in the second series of the Teen Titans comics in issue #1.

Fictional character biography

A hybrid of H'San Natall/human heritage, Barry Spears was raised by her H'San Natall captors in a virtual reality environment, based on 1950s black-and-white television shows. When her fellow hybrids Isaiah Crockett, Toni Monetti, and Cody Driscoll are abducted by her alien captors, they accidentally destroy Audrey's simulated world. Audrey is horrified to find her life a lie. Her hybrid "siblings" took the poor girl in after they escaped the H'San Natal. The four teens join with the recently de-aged Atom to form the new Teen Titans. Because of her glass-like skin and ability to control light, Audrey assumes the codename "Prysm".[1]

As a Teen Titan, Prysm felt like she actually had a family again, but when Isaiah (then called Joto) "dies", the team is disbanded.[2] Looking for a kindred spirit, Prysm seeks out Cyborg went insane and tries to collect every member of the Teen Titans.

Prysm's current whereabouts are unknown.

A future version, part of a conquering team of Titans, appears in "Teen Titans" #53, (Jan 2008). This team is attacked by Starro. [5]

Prysm was one of the Titans summoned to help in a battle against Superboy-Prime. [6]

Powers and abilities

Prysm has skin composed of a glass-like organic crystal, which absorbs and refracts light. She can manipulate light to fire laser beams from her eyes, project concussive photon bolts from her hands, generate searing heat by affecting infrared lightwaves, and fly by "riding" ambient lightrays.

Due to her unusual physiology, Prysm cannot see color, and views the world in black-and-white.
