Private Hive

Titans Tower File Photos:

Atten-shun! Private Hive – armed with a shield and a gung-ho attitude – is a sinister soldier of supervilliany. The Private studied at the Hive Academy under the tutelage of Brother Blood – where he met other students who shared his taste for treachery.

Private Hive teamed up with fellow undergrads Jinx, Gizmo, Mammoth and See-More to form the “Hive Five” – a group of criminally inclined kids. It didn’t take long for the Hive Five to clash with the Teen Titans!

  • See-More and Private Hive appeared briefly in DECEPTION; MOTHER MAE-EYE features their first ‘full’ appearance – as members of the “Hive Five.”
  • Mammoth, Jinx, Gizmo, See-More and Private Hive form the “Hive Five.” In the comic book series, Mammoth, Gizmo and Jinx were members of The Fearsome Five – a criminal group that battled the Titans.
  • Greg Cipes – voice of Beast Boy – provides the voice for Private Hive, although his name does not appear in the credits.

Producer/Story Editor  David Slack on the Hive Academy kids: “All those characters were used in season three’s DECEPTION. So we had all these designs. It’s hard to design great characters and those were all such great designs. They were sitting there waiting to be used. Kevin Michael Richardson did the voice for Seemore, and I think that’s what made Seemore just so funny. He got even funnier in my opinion, because of Kevin. It seemed like, if we were going to be doing an episode about a mother hindering her kids, we needed evil kids. And there were the Hive kids.”

Private Hive did not appear in the comic books; He was created for the animated series
