The Prof was one of three criminals who shared the super-villain identity Trident. He had been a weapons designer for H.I.V.E. until he struck out to commit crimes on his own and fight the Teen Titans, sharing his alter-ego with enforcer Sammy Jaye and an unnamed black man. During this time, the Prof was known to have personally fought Donna Troy and Raven, although he escaped. Prof and his other partner eventually murdered Sammy Jaye for holding out on them after a particularly large score, which led to the Titans hunting them down and arresting them for his death. His real name is still unknown, only called an abbreviation of professor.[1] His unnamed partner is later broken out of prison by the Wildebeest Society to commit further crimes, although the Prof seemingly remains incarcerated.[2]

  • This version of Prof (New Earth), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
