Onomatopoeia is a serial killer whose preferred victims are non-powered superheroes. He earned his name due to imitating any sound he hears.
Onomatopoeia first appeared inside a mover's truck on a ferry, the vehicle packed with explosives, seemingly wishing to blow up the ferry. However, Red Arrow arrives on the scene, apprehending him on the ferry and driving the truck into the ocean. This was all apart of his plan however, as the fusion bomb in the truck soon detonates in the water, setting off a massive tidal wave that headed straight towards Star City.
While the arriving Teen Titans and Red Arrow worked to save the city from the incoming tidal wave, Onomatopoeia broke into Queen Industries in the chaos, stealing high-grade weapons. As the team eventually saves the city, the serial killer then began to open fire down onto them with the weaponry he stole. However, Robin and Kid Flash were able to get around the firing bullets and defeat him.
Once Robin's illegal prison was discovered, Damian decided to brainwash his prisoners, including Onomatopoeia, into becoming citizens using the magic of Djinn. This magic would wear off however once Djinn was imprisoned within her ring by fellow member Roundhouse.
After this plan failed, Onomatopoeia was not long after defeated once again by the Teen Titans and was properly arrested.
