History


Disruptive Behavior

Angelica Smith’s life of abandonment began after she took her first breath. Found as a baby in a trash can, Angelica was placed in a series of dilapidated group homes left to fend for herself. Hardened by life, young Angelica would bully the other children and steal their money. Her rage over her abandonment issues would also cause her to get into fights with other children.

Angelica was also placed in a series of foster homes, none of which lasted very long, probably due to Angelica’s disruptive behavior. Enraged at the happiness shared by one set of foster parents, Angelica murdered the woman and tried to claim the man for herself. After spending some time in jail, Angelica was approached by the Clock King.

Playing on her feelings of abandonment, Clock King fabricated a story and told Angelica that she was the daughter of the two-bit criminal known as the Disruptor. Rescuing Angelica from a life of misery, Clock King gave her a super-powered uniform and persuaded her to join his Terror Titans as the new Disruptor.

Permanent Disruptions

After joining the Terror Titans, Angelica began a romantic affair with Clock King. For the first time in her sad life, she felt as if she found somewhere to belong.

Angelica’s new “home” was threatened when Clock King took an interest in Ravager, who shared his precognitive abilities. Jealous of Ravager, Angelica constantly tried to turn Clock King and the other Terror Titans against her. Clock King eventually ordered Disruptor to leave Ravager alone, a seemingly impossible task for the vengeful Disruptor.

Meanwhile, Clock King created his own meta-human militia of brainwashed super-teens, and ordered them to cause senseless destruction in Los Angeles. But once Ravager and MIss Martian freed the enthralled super-powered teens from Clock King’s control, only the Terror Titans remained allied with the temporal-powered mastermind. Disruptor tried to murder Ravager, an act that drew the ire of Clock King. For failing to follow his orders, Clock King subsequently murdered Disruptor and abandoned the remaining Terror Titans.
