The HIVE Master had gathered seven other unnamed criminal scientists to take over the world and eliminate their enemies in the form of Superman and the Teen Titans. HIVE's first known plot was the kidnapping and memory removal from Lois Lane, followed shortly by an attempt at finding out the secrets involving the return of Superman Island from space and the hiring of Deathstroke the Terminator to kill the New Titans. It was also responsible for the procedure that made Deathstroke's son Grant Wilson into Ravager.
The HIVE Master is later killed and replaced by the H.I.V.E. Mistress, who re-enlists Deathstroke to help them out.
