History

In the series, Beast Boy plays the role of the light-hearted jokester of the group, though he often ends up the butt of many jokes himself. He wears a black and purple Doom Patrol uniform, complete with gray gloves and purple sneakers. Though he appears to be the youngest member of the team, he believes himself to be a ladies man, and sees his pointy ears as being one of his attractive qualities.He is a full-vegan vegetarian, having been most of the meat-producing animals[1]. He's also enjoys playing pranks, and is prone to causing much of the mischief around Titans Tower, such as the time he kept a large mutant moth larva hidden in his bedroom[2]. The larva, which he dubs Silkie, devours much of the Tower while the team is on a mission fighting Johnny Rancid. Beast Boy entrusts Silkie to Starfire to hide his pet from the others, but she ends up adopting the creature.

Beast Boy had a romantic relationship with a girl named Terra who had the ability to control earth. As in the comic book, Terra betrays the Teen Titans as an ally of Slade. Ultimately, she receives redemption in helping the Titans defeat Slade, but is turned into stone in the process. In a departure from the comic book, Beast Boy retains feelings for Terra until he finds her reborn with seemingly no memory of him or her time as a Titan, and he finally accepts her loss[3].

Season 5 of Teen Titans is focused on Beast Boy and his history as a member of the animated series' incarnation of the Doom Patrol. In the second episode of the fifth season, Beast Boy becomes the first male Titan in the series to be explicitly referred to by his real name (Garfield Logan).

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Animal Mimicry: Through an act of will, Beast Boy can transform his body into any known animal on the planet Earth. When assuming the form of another animal, he also adopts that particular animal's physical characteristics. If he turns into a bird, he can fly. If he turns into a gorilla, he gains enhanced strength, etc. Beast Boy can always revert back to his human form at any time of his choosing. It can be proven that these are animals that Beast Boy has only learned about and/or seen. This is proven in the episode "Betrothed" when he sees an alien animal early in the episode, then turns into it later in it.
  • "Mutated Mode": On an episode where he encountered Adonis, he was covered with a mutating slime that first changed his personality, then later gave him a new animal to turn into. This is considered to be his most powerful transformation.

Notes

  • This version of Beast Boy is exclusive to the continuity of the Teen Titans animated series and the Teen Titans Go! comic book adaptation.
  • The role of Beast Boy was voiced by actor Greg Cipes.
  • This version of Beast Boy has slightly more animalistic features than his comic book counterpart. Whereas the DC Universe version of Beast Boy is completely human in appearances (aside from his purple and/or green skin), the animated version of Beast Boy has pointed ears and a snaggletooth while in his primary form.

Trivia

  • Beast Boy is the only member of the team who has ever been referred to by his real name. His birth name, Garfield Logan, was revealed in the fifth season of the series during a storyline involving the Doom Patrol. [4]
  • Unlike his comic book counterpart, this version of Beast Boy is a vegetarian. As a being who can shape-shift into any known animal form, the idea of consuming meat is repulsive to him.
  • Titans head writer, David Slack intentionally wrote Raven and Beast Boy as a "married couple", hence the relationship was one of deep loyalty and affection, but also laced with conflictive personality clashes. This "tough love" relationship between Beast Boy and Raven is continued in Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo (Movie), also written by Slack.
