Minion (real name Jarras Minion) is a fictional DC Comics superhero best known as a member of the Teen Titans and for giving the Omegadrome armor to Cyborg. He first appears in New Teen Titans #114 (September 1994), and was created by Marv Wolfman and Rick Mays.

Fictional character biography[edit]

After Jarras Minion's home planet of Talyn (and its long-adversarial sister planet, Kallas) were destroyed by an energy force, he set out to find the party responsible. He had cybernetically bonded with the morphing Omegadrome battlesuit--which had been developed by his parents--to survive the destruction. His search for a cause of his planet's demise led him to Earth and ultimately to the party responsible, Teen Titans villain, Psimon. Donna Troy convinced Minion not to kill Psimon, who was then taken into custody by the Darkstars.[1]

Leaving repeatedly to travel the galaxy, Minion returned to help Phantasm defeat an evil version of former Titan, Raven, who was intent on planting the seeds of Trigon's unborn children into new vessels. With the help of Minion, the Titans finally defeated Raven. Minion then stayed with the Titans and became a member in The New Titans #123 (1995).

After a second battle with Raven, Raven, Minion and Garfield Logan elected to remain in space as traveling companions to Victor Stone, then known as Cyberion. Minion eventually decided to leave the Omegadrome suit to Cyberion, who would eventually be forced to "download" himself into the Omegadrome suit, becoming Cyborg.

After this, Minion continued traveling the galaxy, without the Omegadrome, and seemingly having re-embraced his pacifist beliefs.
