|Animal Boy! YAAAY! This is were you can see the updated suit any time I change it!|
Animal Boy was a teenager that knew what it was like to have responsibility before he had power. After his father’s death, and because his mother was always away, he was left in charge of his little sister from a young age. His sisters were away at college and weren't able to be home to help.
Then, he received his power. In a freak accident he accidentally turned into a tiger trying to help his friend who was being bullied. He then skipped the rest of the school day to get a hold of himself. After he read his deceased fathers journal, and learning that his father was Captain Omega, one of the greatest heroes that ever lived, he began training. He spent a year working as a silent protector, until the Psi-Void invasion. He worked on the front lines, defending the world from Psi-voids robot attackers. Trigger, Arch-nemesis of Captain Omega, seeing Animal Boy as a potential threat, targeted him.
In the next year, Animal Boy was attacked by Trigger and almost demasked in front of his entire school body, but then RAPTOR intervened. Soldiers sprang through the windows, coming to his aid and forcing Trigger to leave. Animal Boy followed RAPTOR back to their base, and found his mother working there. She explained to him that she had a very important mission to attend to and that he was to be the Director of RAPTOR. He accepted unwillingly.
Animal Boy led RAPTOR through one of it’s most trying times during the Freedom War in Summer 2012, when the government tried to force the superhuman community to be trained in order to be a hero. While not fully agreeing with what had to be done, Animal Boy was stuck in a rock and a hard place, in which he had to fight for RAPTOR. The Freedom War allowed Animal Boy to make many friends, as well as a few enemies within the Superhero Community. After the Freedom War, Trigger attempted to take over the world, along with many of the super villains Animal Boy had fought over the course of that year, but was ultimately stopped when Animal Boy’s mother returned. Triggers body was destroyed, with only his cyborg head being left behind. His daughter, Empress Zero, then stole his head and put it into a stasis chamber.
In 2013, Animal Boy joined the reformed Thunder Force team under the guidance of Wildman. Wildman helped Animal Boy train his abilities in a more formal setting. Near the beginning of the year, Animal Boy had a few jump scares in the middle of the night, when gold, glowing streams of energy left his mouth. He confronted his mother who had his power before him, who eventually told him the origin of their powers. As the story goes, the powers that have been passed down for generations stemmed from a device that the biblical Noah created before the flood, through advanced technology made from resources completely destroyed in that flood. The device stored the DNA of every kind of animal in the world, and recorded them for later use. After the flood, one of Noah’s sons dropped the device and the entirety of the DNA from the device was put inside of him. He passed the powers it gave them to one of his children, who passed it down to one of his children, and so on. But since Animal Boy’s father had superpowers as well when he was conceived, somehow the powers were ingrained in his blood. The powers in his blood, as well as his mother passing the same powers to him like their ancestors, caused interference with his powers. He had to get rid of the stream of DNA that his mother passed him. He and his mother traveled to the remains of the Ark, where he found the device, and stored the powers inside of it.
Later that year, the powerful being called Omega attacked and nearly destroyed the world. Animal Boy helped thwart his attack with the Thunder Force team. During Omega’s destruction, however, his father Captain Omega came back from the dead mysteriously.
