Otto Von Furth was employed as a miner and was excavating radium when he was trapped in a cave-in. Over the seven days Von Furth was stuck, he was exposed to the radioactivity of the minerals but survived, unlike his co-workers. While recovering at a Jump City hospital, he mutated into a monstrosity known as Plasmus and went on a rampage. The authorities discovered that if Von Furth was kept asleep, he would remain human and Plasmus would be inert.

The Teen Titans fought Plasmus on a distant planet but it began punching the delicate core. As the others charged at Plasmus, Beast Boy pondered what animal form to take on. Plasmus punched the core and destroyed the planet. The Titans made it back to Earth on a some debris. Plasmus later returned to Earth and fought the Titans again in Jump City when Jayna of the Wonder Twins was a member. Zan and Beast Boy were plotting against her. After Jayna took on a kangaroo form, Zan quickly took the form of ice and she slammed into the Titans. Plasmus was one of the beasts defeated by Robin's elite Titans team after he used the Mysterious Prism. Plasmus 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. Plasmus dressed as a fairy for Halloween.
