Titans Season Four Villains – Who Are The Players And Who Are The Characters?
The new faces are both seasoned veterans and fresh faces of recent years. Morgan is best known as Klaus Mikelson from both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. Potente is best remembered in such films as Run, Lola, Run, The Bourne Identity, and The Bourne Supremacy. She’s also starred in TV shows like Claws, Taboo, American Horror Story and Copper. And finally, Ambalavanar has starred in The Doctors and The A List.
However, longtime fans of The Teen Titans in both comic and animated formats remember their characters well. Sebastian “Brother” Blood is the occultist leader of The Church of Blood, the latest in a generational succession to bear that title and birth name. The Titans have battled both Sebastian Blood VIII and IX, the latter created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez during their Tales of The Teen Titans run. Both have possessed supernatural powers. His first live-action appearance was in the second season of The CW series Arrow as a lieutenant of another Titans antagonist, Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke. This version of Blood was played by Kevin Alejandro, whose grand ambition was to orchestrate a massacre of Starling City’s undeserving with a super soldier army and rebuild it as its mayor. Another incarnation was found in the Teen Titans animated series, voiced by John DiMaggio. This Brother Blood was more of Cyborg’s enemy as the leader of the organization H.I.V.E and possessed the power of mind control, telekinesis, energy blasts, and teleportation to name a few. He was also a minor antagonist introduced in the first act of the DCAU feature Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, voiced by Gregg Henry.
In the cases of Jinx and Mother Mayhem, however, this will be their official live-action debuts. Little is known about Mother Mayhem other than the face that she is the wife of Brother Blood in the comics, who birthed a daughter to Sebastian Blood VIII. As for Jinx, she was also created by Wolfman but designed by Chuck Patton in 1985. She is an Indian-born elemental sorceress that must retain connection to the ground while spellcasting. She also has precognitive abilities and is able to speak to the Earth itself. She is also the leader of The Fearsome Five. Her only appearance outside the comic is in the animated series as leader of the H.I.V.E. Five, but her powers were changed to affect probability like Marvel’s The Scarlet Witch. She was voiced by veteran voice actress Tara Strong.
There is currently no release date for the fourth season of Titans.
