Body Transformation (Self): Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man is capable of taking on any animal, vegetable, or mineral form.
Biologist Sven Larsen seemingly becomes a victim of one of his own experiments when he is transformed into a being capable of taking on any animal, vegetable, or mineral form known as the Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man. After a battle with the Doom Patrol, however, the Chief deduces that Larsen's transformation was deliberate and that by killing the Doom Patrol he seeks revenge on the Chief, whom he wrongly believes once stole an invention of his. Ironically, the device in question proves to be the sole means of stopping the Animal-Vegetable-Mineral Man by "freezing" him in a single transmuted form until he can be captured and returned to normal.
