Killer Moth

Titans Tower File Photos:

With no superpowers of his own, this ordinary guy relies on superior training, intellect and a high tech utility belt to battle his foes. Sound familiar? But unlike Robin, Killer Moth is a bad guy with an army of monstrous genetically mutated moths.

The creepy criminal threatened to destroy the city with a flying army of mutant moths, unless … Robin took his spoiled-rotten teenage daughter Kitten to her junior prom.   So while the other Titans were scouring the city in search of Moth’s secret hideout, a reluctant Robin has no choice but to go along with the villain’s bizarre demand. When the Titans located Moth’s base, Robin was free to dump Kitten – much to Starfire’s satisfaction.

Unknown to his fellow teammates, Beast Boy kept one of Killer Moth’s worms as a pet at Titans Tower. Starfire immediately adopted the weird mutant silkworm – who she named “Silkie” – as a pet of her own.

Killer Moth tracked down his experiment and forced his creation to attack the city as a giant moth. Starfire pleaded with Silkie to break free from Killer Moth – and the mutant creature remembered Starfire as its kind caregiver. Silkie’s next mutation led to explosive results – and reverted the worm back to it’s original, ? compact form. Starfire requested to keep Silkie as a pet at Titans Tower, and Robin agreed.

  • Will Friedle – voice of Fang – also provided the voice of Terry McGuiness on “Batman Beyond.”
  • Killer Moth’s house is an exact replica of the house from the “Brady Bunch” – complete with the same decor.
  • The worm that Beast Boy adopts at the end of DATE WITH DESTINY is seen in later episodes.

Killer Moth is actually a Batman foe, not a Titans foe. He’s a low-level criminal that dresses like a giant moth. He later turned into a monsterous insect form at the hands of the demon, Neron.
