Matthew "Matt" Price is a new student at Teen Titans Academy.
Last year Matt woke up in the med bay of the U.S.S. Eisenhower. The Captain said he "fell out of the sky". Matt was lucky they were there to fish him out of the Atlantic and save his life. Waking up on that aircraft carrier was his first memory, everything before that was a total blank. Matthew Price is from an old poem though he only really remembered this name-- and since he needed one, he took it.

- To his frustration, he is often confused for a Superboy because of his Kryptonian-like powers, black hair, and blue eyes. Despite the similarities, he does lack many Kryptonian abilities such as super-breath.
- The fact that he has the Omega Beam ability, hints that Matt may be from Apokolips and have connection to Darkseid, though it's still unclear.
