A member of the Heroes of Lallor
Iishu Nor is the real name of Beast Boy. His parents were
exposed to radiation during an atomic accident that destroyed
the continent of Antillar on the planet Lallor. When
Iishu was born, he possessed the ability to turn into any animal
in the galaxy. Dubbed Beast Boy, Iishu joined with four other
youth with extrodinary powers to become the Heroes of Lallor.
Beast Boy's ability to transform into any animal in the galaxy made
him sympathetic to the plight of animals that are hunted. Finally,
Beast Boy turns his back on humanity, leading a group of animals
against the hunters and trappers of his world. This brought
Beast Boy into conflict with Legion of Super-Heroes. When one
of the animals Beast Boy had freed threatens the life of a little girl,
Beast Boy sacrifices his own life to save her. For this action,
Beast Boy is remembered as a hero rather than a villain.
