    History of Beast Boy

    Beast Boy, also known as Garfield Mark Logan or Gar Logan, is one of the most prominent members of the Teen Titans and has been a part of the DC Comic book industry since 1966. He was created by Arnold Drake and Bob Brown and first appeared in “The Doom Patrol” #99.

    Gar Logan was the son of a circus performer named Jack Logan. His mother died giving birth to him, and he grew up living in the woods with an aunt who treated him poorly. When his father came back into his life, Gar asked about where mommy went; but his dad didn’t know that answer either.

    One day while he was in the woods, he came across a group of scientists experimenting on animals. He first saved some birds from being experimented on and then later found out that they were testing to see if anyone could go into animal form for an extended period of time. The incident gave him temporary powers but also left him with dangerous side effects!

    He soon joined the Teen Titans, where he met Robin and Beast Girl. He was also later known as “The Changeling” for being able to change forms into animals, but now he can only turn into green-skinned creatures like himself!

    Powers and Abilities

    Beast Boy’s powers come from an experiment when he was a young boy. He has the ability to turn into any animal, as long as there is some connection between that animal and himself (e.g., if he eats it or once had contact with its blood). The link doesn’t have to be personal; for example, animals who are part of his biological family are also ones he can turn into.

    Beast Boy’s powers are only limited by the imagination of the writer and artist. He has been known to transform into a variety of animals, including apes, cats, dogs, dinosaurs, and even fish!

    The power is not always with Beast Boy; it only takes effect when the situation calls for it. For example, if he wishes to fly as an animal, he can do it. He usually turns into a green-skinned creature like himself!


    Beast Boy has affections for Raven, a fellow member of the Teen Titans.
