Beast Boy was an animal shapeshifter and a longtime member of the Teen Titans.
During one fateful day, Beast Boy was playing around with teammates Kid Flash and Superboy in Metropolis. Meanwhile, in Metropolis, Superman was tricked into killing Lois Lane, whose heart had a detonator. Superboy tried to shield Beast Boy, but failed, causing Beast Boy's death.
It was revealed that Beast Boy was in Metropolis when the Nuke detonated killing everyone, Beast Boy died in the blast and recovered by Superboy, who survived the blast
Beast Boy was briefly mentioned by Cyborg as one of his friends he lost in Metropolis. Beast Boy is shown in Starfire's ending as a dog eating pizza, as she mentions that he is missing and most likely dead, meaning she is unaware he was killed when Joker bombed Metropolis.
Powers and Abilities
- Terrestrial Metamorph: Beast Boy has the ability to morph into any animal he knows of. He can change into extinct animals and even animals from different planets. When he changes, it only takes a couple of seconds. It does not matter how big or small. It does not put strain on him to do this. He can stay in an animal's form indefinitely. He has changed into multiple animals such as a swarm of fireflies and a group of barnacles. The only problem is no matter what form he takes the animal's skin and hair color will always be green. Beast Boy can also change into a hybrid, which has all the animals' powers rolled into one. He cannot control this so he does not turn into a hybrid unless absolutely needed. He has demonstrated the ability to transform into animals many times larger than their actual forms: among others, he has been seen transforming into a human-sized tarantula and a giant snake. He has also been seen transforming into mythical animals such as a phoenix and a dragon. Whether this is a progression of his abilities or a new power altogether is unknown.
- Animal Mimicry: Beast Boy has the power to mimic the abilities of any animal he knows of while he is in their form. The ability apparently gives him intuitive understanding of the animals and what abilities they have that may be useful in the situation.
- Animal Empathy
