Dog of the Geek: Yankee Poodle!


Y is for Yankee PoodleBreed: Poodle

Original Appearances: New Teen Titans #16 (preview), Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew

Other Appearances: Teen Titans #30-31 (December 2005-January 2006) (see Miscellaneous), Oz-Wonderland War, Captain Carrot and the Final Ark, (Miniseries)

Biography: On Earth-C, populated by “funny animals,” reporter Rova Barkett was interviewing movie actor Byrd Rentals when she was struck by a meteor fragment (originally launched towards Earth by Starro the Conqueror), which gave her the powers of “animal magnetism,” which manifests itself visually by a stream of stars or stripes. Rentals was also struck by a fragment, and the two of them teamed up with others affected similarly to form the Zoo Crew after assisting Superman in the defeat of Starro.

Powers: Yankee Poodle could shoot electromagnetic “stars” with her right hand to repel objects, and red and white stripes with her left hand to attract objects. Combining both hands created “magno-blasts”.

Group Affiliation: Zoo Crew
Miscellaneous: That Teen Titans appearance portrayed the Zoo Crew in a darker version of Earth-C, and many fans don't feel it's part of real Zoo Crew continuity. The Zoo Crew were created by Roy Thomas and Scott Shaw!
