History: Beast Boy's parents were biologists who spent most of their time in the African bush. As a young child there, he contracted a rare disease which was nearly always fatal to humans, but which some species of animals were resistant to. Out of desperation, his father administered an experimental vaccine which did cure the boy, but with the unexpected side effect of turning his skin and hair bright green...and, they would later discover, destabilizing his genetic structure and granting him the ability to shape-shift into any animal he could imagine! Some time later, his parents were killed in a boating accident. Believing that he had possessed the power to save them, Beast Boy resolved to spend the rest of his life using his unique abilities to help others. Not long after that he joined the Doom Patrol, an adult team of costumed heroes, and was legally adopted by two of their members, Mento and Elasti-Girl. However, during a mission against the Doom Patrol's arch-enemies, the Brotherhood of Evil, Beast Boy disobeyed Mento by refusing to sacrifice his teammates' lives in order to stop the Brotherhood's leader from escaping. Seeing this as an indication that his adopted son wasn't ready to function as a member of the Doom Patrol, Mento kicked him off the team. Fortunately for Beast Boy, it wasn't long before he found some new friends, closer to his own age...
Powers/Abilities: Beast Boy is able to rapidly change his physical shape into that of any animal, living or extinct, that he can imagine. In the process he adopts any and all of that animal's physical traits, characteristics and abilities, but he remains the same distinctive shade of green regardless of what form he adopts, so in most cases it doesn't make for an effective disguise. His sense of smell and hearing are also particularly acute, even when in human form.
