Fictional character biography

Teen Titans

Toni Monetti was the daughter of a former U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Around the time she turned sixteen, Toni's skin gained a silver sheen to it. At a pool party for her sixteenth birthday, Toni was mysteriously teleported away. Toni, along with a few other teens, learned that they were half-alien, and their mothers were impregnated by an alien race called the H'San Natall years ago. The teens were part of a sleeper agent program created by the H'San Natall to defeat the super-powered beings already on Earth. The group of teens stayed together, and with the funding of Loren Jupiter, became the newest incarnation of the Teen Titans. Toni’s ability to control bursts of silver plasma energy earned her the codename, Argent.

Argent in "Calling All Titans"

Argent appeared in Season 5 of the Teen Titans animated series in the episode "Calling All Titans" in which she meets Starfire and becomes an honorary Titan, but she is soon captured by General Immortus of the Brotherhood of Evil. Argent can fire crimson energy beams, and use that energy to form objects. Unlike the comic book version of the character, this version of Argent appears to hail from New Zealand (in the comics, she is Italian); the character speaks with a New Zealand accent and her clothes imply a gothic origin, and Robin received her distress call from a small island similar in appearance to New Zealand. When Más Y Menos unfreeze all of the captured titans during the final battle of "Titans Together", Argent joins the fight. She is seen sending two energy beams in the form of hands after a fleeing Johnny Rancid. Later she is seen in the Titans Tower and before the "battle" against Dr. Light.
