HIVE is a terrorist organization led by HIVE Master.
HIVE is a militaristic organization that intends to convince or coerce people (usually the young) into joining a social hierarchy that is reminiscent of bees in a hive. They try to achieve this with acts of terror like large explosions in major cities or massed attacks in the streets accompanied by loud hailing of slogans. One of these is, "new social behavior is the only true hierarchy," and they consider free will to be a disease
Its foot soldiers are well equipped and wear armored battle suits that have an 'H' on the chest and which can sometimes be fitted with a rocket pack to enable them to fly. The gold-and-black color scheme, the insect-shaped helmets, the HIVE name, and their beliefs all reinforce the identification with bees.
This is continued by their bipedal armored fighting vehicles which are bee-like in shape and are able to fly.
The one used by HIVE Master can shoot a sticky substance to trap its targets that has the look of honey.
Their bases are always hidden - sometimes with an invisibility cloaking device - and are defended by heavy armament including missiles.
- From elsewhere we learn that their name is an acronym for Hierarchy of International Vengeance and Extermination - but other renderings are possible.
- This HIVE appears to be based off of the corrupt organization from the Arrow TV series and not the group from the Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go animated series, although both do appear to take influence from the Teen Titans shows.
