The first Tara Markov was a troubled girl who joined and betrayed the Teen Titans before killing herself with her earth-controlling powers. Years later, another Terra appeared, claiming to be an adventurer from the future who had surgery to resemble the original Terra. However, she is indeed the original, somehow rescued from death by the villainous Time Trapper. Only her brother, the Outsider Geo-Force, knows this. Terra has control over the earth and can levitate stones for flight. She can cause earthquakes, create lava bursts, and create shapes out of solid rock.
