Animal Man (Buddy Baker) is a fictional DC Comics superhero. As a result of being in proximity to an exploding extraterrestrial spaceship, "Buddy" Baker acquires the ability to temporarily “borrow” the abilities of animals (such as a bird's flight or the proportionate strength of an ant). Using these amazing powers, Baker fights crime as the costumed superhero, Animal Man.
In the late 1980s, following the slate-cleaning Crisis on Infinite Earths event, DC began employing innovative writers — mostly young and mostly British — to revamp some of their old characters. In the period that saw Alan Moore reinvent Swamp Thing, and Neil Gaiman do the same with The Sandman, Animal Man was re-imagined by Scottish writer Grant Morrison. Morrison wrote the first 26 issues of the Animal Man comic book, published between 1988 and 1990, with art by Chas Truog and Doug Hazlewood; Brian Bolland provided the covers.
