Khfeurb Chee Bez, born on the planet Grxyor, was 'blessed' from birth with his unusually-shaped ears. Antennae Boy was one of the many applicants who were on hand to try to fill the empty slot in the Legion left by the death of founding Legionnaire, Lightning Lad. He was rejected because his power, the ability to pick up radio waves transmitted from anywhere on the planet from the present or past was imperfect, often resulting in deafening feedback squeals.

This same ability, however, later brought him to the attention of the researchers at the Metropolis Time Institute, who used his power to collect ancient recordings to add to their body of historical knowledge.

Later Khfeurb applied to the Legion of Substitute Heroes, and was accepted as an auxiliary member (the Subs could find little use for his abilities either, yet did not want to reject any applicant).

Antennae Boy later moved on to a career as a newscaster with the United Planets Broadcasting Service.
