Bumblebee (DC)
Real Name: Karen Beecher-Duncan
Search for 'Bumblebee (DC)' on Amazon

Her abilities are derived from her scientific super-suit. The suit enhances her strength, acts as body armor and allows her to fly and create painful sonic blasts.

Scientist Karen Beecher was the girlfriend of Mal Duncan (a.k.a. the superhero Herald). In order to help make Herald look good in front of the team, Beecher secretly made herself a bumblebee-themed super-suit and attacked the Teen Titans. She escaped without this ruse being revealed.

When she later explained to Mal and the Titans what she had done, they were impressed enough to offer her membership, which she accepted. She and Mal subsequently moved to the new Titans West team, having relocated to San Francisco. When the Titans team dissolved for a time, Karen and Mal married and 'retired' from super-heroics. Karen took a job with S.T.A.R. Labs, where she designs non-lethal weaponry.

They have returned to crime-fighting from time to time to assist the team, most notably during a short-lived revival of Titans West and the JLA/Titans event, which reunited everyone involved with the team. Following this, Mal and Karen briefly joined the latest incarnation of Titans West (now called Titans L.A.), but this incarnation of the team never really formed.
