Where does Beast Boy come from?

Beast Boy

Beast Boy is known for his ability to shapeshift into different animals, both real and imaginary. He is easily recognizable by his green skin and hair, which is consistent in all of his animal forms as well. Created by Arnold Drake and Bob Brown, Beast Boy made his first appearance in a 1965 installment of The Doom Patrol series.

Born Garfield Logan, Beast Boy’s origin story includes the death of his parents soon after he was given his powers by an experimental serum administered during a childhood illness. Beast Boy was adopted by the ragtag members of the Doom Patrol and served as its youngest member until the death of the rest of the group. Beast Boy later joined the New Teen Titans, a DC comic-book series that attained great popularity in the 1980s, and which continues to this day. There, he was first known as Changeling before eventually reclaiming his original title.

Beast Boy’s other incarnation appears in Cartoon Network’s popular TV program, Teen Titans. Here, Beast Boy is one of five main cast members, and he often plays the role of the comic relief. The show strikes both comedic and serious notes, and it is known for its complex character development within a format accessible to younger viewers. Beast Boy was a popular character during the show’s run (2003–06), where he was voiced by Greg Cipes. He currently appears in Teen Titans Go!, a follow-up series from Cartoon Network featuring the same characters from the Teen Titans show.

Due to various retcons and reboots, [Starfire’s] the only adult member, while her former peers Raven and Beast Boy are teenagers again. That’s what kicks off the issue, as a misunderstanding leaves Starfire feeling excluded by her teammates.
