Killer Moth is a super villain bent on taking over the world with his mutated moth creations. He was judged his whole life for his looks which later drove him to become a supervillain. At some point, Starfire took on one of his creations, Larva M3-19, as her own pet and named it Silkie. Ever since then, Killer Moth has offered a cash reward for the return of Silkie. Eventually, Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg discovered the reward flyer. They decided to "do the right thing" and returned Silkie to Killer Moth. Just as he launched a horde of moths from his cocoon hideout under a bridge, the T-Jet smashed through them and "parked" in it. Killer Moth was overjoyed to be reunited with Silkie and begrudgingly wrote the guys a check for a lot of money.

When Starfire realized what happened, she was sure Killer Moth had some evil plan in store. Fed up with Starfire's obsession, Raven took her to Killer Moth's hideout and Starfire was right. Killer Moth bathed Silkie in a pool of chemicals designed to mutate it into his harbinger of death. However, it only made gave Silkie the power of flight, larger, and cuter. Killer Moth was dismayed by his failure, having exhausted his life savings. He gave up and went to bed.

Killer Moth rampaged through Jump City atop a giant purple larva. Opposed by the Teen Titans, Killer Moth leaped down to their level but became curious about the new member on the team. The Titans insisted it was Beast Boy, in a new form, unaware it was actually Silkie's friend Chuck. Soon the Titans and Moth became embroiled in a discussion about looks. The Titans realized Beast Boy should be with his own kind, the gross, and left him with Killer Moth. Moth was inspired to show them a world where everyone looks like him and Beast Boy and therefore, looks wouldn't matter. He returned to his coccoon hideout and invented the Bug Beam, a device capable of mutating organic lifeforms inton insect humanoids. He planned to mutate the world and eliminate the impossible standards of beauty. He fake a distress call and lured the Titans to his hideout then mutated them first. Annoyed with the Titans' superficial attitudes, Moth instead gave up, concluded they would never learn and went to bed. He refused Robin's request for an antidote.

Killer Moth later helped the Titans cheer up the sad cloud raining on Jump City with a game of Head's Up Seven Up for chocolate milk. During Crime Season, Killer Moth went after toxic waste stored on a train. The Titans tried to stop him to win Crime Season but he dodged their attacks because in part it wasn't his first train fight. He detonated a train car with a bug-shaped explosive and dropped his pet into the toxic waste. It turned into a giant mutant and defeated the Titans. Killer Moth gloated and proceeded to destroy Jump City. Robin formed a new team of Titans and tried to defeat Moth again to win Crime Season. After bashing Kid Flash's knee, Robin led the Titans in a unified punch that destroyed the mutant.
