Proty II Is a member of the Protean race, a race of shape changing creatures that could assume virtually any form and communicate via telepathy.
Proty II was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino.
Proty II became the pet of Chameleon Boy shortly after the death of Proty . Uncomfortable with this role, Proty II vigorously campaigned for membership in Legion of Super-Pets and became the team's fifth member following the completion of the super tests from the super pets. Even this role seemed inappropriate to Proty II, and after several years, he left Chameleon Boy's protection and became the leader of a movement to have his people recognized as sentient beings by the United Planets. This movement has succeeded in recent years, and Proty II is now one of the political leaders of his people.
