Synopsis for "The Human Zoo"

No longer content with operating as a "small-time" hero, Buddy Baker strives to make in the big leagues. He begins practicing his powers by tapping into the physical characteristics of cats, fish and spiders. To further promote himself, he makes an ill-fated guest appearance on the Dick Griffith Show. Griffith humiliates him on national television and Buddy decides to beef up his look by adding a leather jacket to his costume.

Later, he responds to an emergency at S.T.A.R. Labs. S.T.A.R. Labs scientst, Doctor Myers, tells him that he was actually hoping for Superman, but will settle for Animal Man regardless. He shows him one of the lab's animal testing facilities. The lab has been ransacked and there are broken cages and emptied medical containers all over the floor.

Meanwhile, B'Wana Beast arrives in San Diego. He appears to be in great discomfort and accosts a mugger in an alleyway.



  • This story takes place in the month of May.
  • Buddy Baker is twenty-nine years-old at the time of publication.
