    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Khfeurb Chee Bez, born on the planet Grxyor, was "blessed" from birth with his unnaturally shaped ears. Antennae Boy was one of the many applicants who were on hand to try to fill the empty slot in the Legion left by the "death" of founding Legionnaire Lightning Lad. He was rejected because his power, the ability to pick up radio waves transmitted from anywhere on the planet, from the present or past, was imperfect, often resulting in deafening feedback squeals. This same ability, however, brought him to the attention of the researchers at the Metropolis Time Institute, who used his power to collect ancient recordings to add to their body of historical knowledge.

    Later, Khfeurb applied to the Legion of Substitute Heroes, and was accepted as an auxiliary member (the Subs could find little use for his abilities either, yet did not want to reject any applicant).

    Antennae Boy was only briefly seen in cameos after that, including an appearance at the wedding of Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel.

    During the "Five Years Later" story arc, Khfeurb is shown multiple times as a newscaster with the United Planets Broadcasting Service.

    Powers & Abilities

    Khferub Chee Bez, Antennae Boy, from birth has had the unique ability to pick up sound waves from anywhere on any planet, even from different eras of time. The problem is that his control over his powers is poor, which greatly reduces the efficiency of his powers. His powers often cause more harm than benefit to him.
