Giving new meaning to the phrase "Move like a butterfly, sting like a bee," former Teen Titan Karen Beecher-Duncan always keeps things buzzing.
Karen is the very definition of a self-made hero. She designed and built her very own super-suit—a technological marvel that imbued her with the ability to fly on insect-like wings and shoot powerful "stinger" blasts from her hands. Under the name Bumblebee, she joined the Teen Titans alongside her partner, Malcolm Duncan.
Karen's scientific know-how not only made her a superhero, it netted her a job at S.T.A.R. Labs, where she worked as an engineer when she briefly retired from saving the world. Brilliant, unflinchingly loyal and ready to adapt to whatever the job might throw at her, Karen has, over the years, become a versatile member of both the Titans and the Doom Patrol.
