Michael Beldon is the son of 'Brains' Beldon, a criminal genius that had tangled with Batman. 'Brains' wanted a seat in the criminal organization, the H.I.V.E. To prove himself, he created a high-tech costume that could disrupt the natural flow/order of things. Meanwhile, his son Michael constantly sought his father's approval. In a bid to earn the respect of his father, Michael wore the costume and called himself The Disruptor. At the H.I.V.E's request, he hunted down members of the Teen Titans. If Disruptor could kill them, the seat in the H.I.V.E. would be given to 'Brains' Beldon. Disruptor was effective in combat, almost killing Cyborg, Changeling, and Wonder Girl with his disruption powers. Kid Flash himself was captured by him and his father. The Titans counterattacked, only to have the Disruptor turn their own powers against them, until he was defeated by Raven's soul-self. Upon his defeat, the H.I.V.E. rescinded their offer to 'Brains' Beldon. Michael went to jail, took the rap for his father only to be rebuffed by him, and leaving himself devastated. Later, Wildebeest and The Puppeteer sprang the black Trident, Gizmo and Disruptor from jail, but these villains were eventually recaptured (except for Wildebeest and Puppeteer) by the Titans. Disruptor resurfaced later to battle Arsenal's team of Titans, but he was defeated once again.
