Jordan Baker, also known as Animal Boy is the son of Bernhard "Buddy" Baker/Animal Man and Ellen Baker. He is the second child of his family, as well as the younger brother to Maxine Baker. He is also said to be an avatar for The Red, giving him various superhuman abilities. His abilities have even been said to surpass his father's, Animal Man.
When he was a child, Jordan and Maxine had wanted his family to get a pet very badly, but his father had refused, given his own sensitivity to animals. While his father was preoccupied with other things, though, he used his connection to The Red to control flesh to animate the corpses of several former neighborhood pets. He explained that he had heard the animals calling to him from a place called The Red.
