Powers and Abilities

Proteus is a shapechanger. He can easily stretch his limbs and body, turn his hands in spiked maces, grow wings to fly, etc. and will always adopt an handsome countenance.


History

The New Olympians is a group of mortal supervillains who were given their abilities by the Monitor. They were assembled by Maxie Zeus to assault the 1984 Olympic Games in L.A., with President Reagan in attendance. Batman intervened and challenged the New Olympians to compete with his Outsiders in a variety of contests.

Vulcanus and Proteus II challenged Metamorpho and Black Lightning to a sort of combat handball, but were defeated.


Description

See illustration.


Personality

Proteus seems to have a huge problem with his natural, ugly features – he begged Black Lightning to kill him instead of having him and Metamorpho see his actual face. When he’s more confident, though, he’s dashing, handsome, and makes up all kind of cool things such as angelic wings. He also overcompensates by acting like a hunk mocking ugly people, like Vulcanus.


Quotes

“To do that, I’d have to look at you, ugly.”
