The Illusive Mystery (most often referred to as Misty) is a ninja alien hero (who later revealed her true villainous side) with ghostly psychic powers.
Misty's powers are primarily psychic in nature, with the ability to read and control others' minds, as well as an ability to turn into a cloud of ghostly mist, appropriately enough. She also has advanced martial arts skills and is referred to as a ninja.
Misty makes her first appearance in "Teen Team Time," as a member of the Teen Team. As the Teen Team's is a parody of the Teen Titans of DC Comics, Misty is a rough analogue in powers and temperament to Raven. However, Misty has a bit of a mean streak — she doesn't like to relate to "normals", only does her heroics/villainy for pay.
In "Teenage Mutant Ninja Troubles", she attends Jenny's school but quickly gets expelled when she goes a little too far when pranking and getting revenge on the Crust Cousins, becoming megalomaniacal and sadistic.
Later, in "Mist Opportunities", she and Jenny clash and seem to become enemies when Misty reveals that she is actually quite villainous, greedy, reckless, uncaring, and cruel. She performs heroic deeds only if she is paid, and doesn't truly care about the citizens of Tremorton. She nearly let the city get completely destroyed by a monster, with absolutely no remorse, and became reckless, threatening to use a school bus full of children to slam the monster against a hospital building. Jenny and Misty get into a fight over this, with Misty nearly destroying Jenny out of anger. When Jenny sadly mentioned that she thought they were friends, Misty flew away in a huff, furiously stating that the only reason she doesn't destroy Jenny is because no one is paying her to do it. Misty is never seen again in the series after this.
Misty has a scrawny body, with pale lavender skin, purple hair and pink eyes. She wears purple and black karate clothes, with gloves and shinobi footings.
Sometimes her color scheme consists of red hair, red pants, orange arms, and tan skin.
Mischievious, hot-headed, reckless, violent, ghostly, selfish, greedy, megalomaniacal, sadistic, and easily offended.
