Animal Vegetable Mineral Man aka Dr. Sven Larsen was a Swedish scientist who specialized in the field of biology. Larsen became a student of Professor Niles Caulder. However, the two parted ways when Larsen accused Caulder of stealing his idea for an experimental device called the Anti-Decay Ray. Soon after, during an experiment, Larsen fell into a vat of amino acids. He discovered he could take on the form of any animal, vegetable, or mineral and combine them into a unique form. Larsen took on the name Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man and attempted to get revenge on Caulder, now the Chief, by destroying the Doom Patrol. At a surprising turn of events, the Anti-Decay Ray was the only way to defeat Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man. It restricted his power to one form, allowing the Doom Patrol to overpower and capture him.
Years later, Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man allied with General Zahl in a plan to humiliate the Doom Patrol. He tracked down Negative Man to a circus and attacked. The arrival of Batman, Elastigirl, and the Chief led to his defeat. However, Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man resurfaced aboard Zahl's ship. He was defeated by Batman and taken away by the authorities.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
This Meta-human is a shapeshifter who can manipulate his body's mass and appearance at will to become various plants, animals and minerals. He turned half of his face into a full-grown T-rex head, his arms into roots, spiked plants and snakes or some sort of crystal and can grow to a large size. He can usually do this by morphing his body into various forms at the same time, making him a very multi-powered being.
