Borb Borbb never revealed details of his homeworld, or the origins of his teleportation power.
He quickly became a valued member of the L.E.G.I.O.N.'s new R.E.C.R.U.I.T.S. and caught the attention of his superior officers. When the organization was restructured, he was promoted to the core team. In his first mission as a core member, Borbb was instrumental in helping the team escape from the Brain Trust.
Borb Borbb had a crush on his superior officer Stealth, which led to him trying to protect her in battle. When the L.E.G.I.O.N. was taken over by Lyrl Dox aka Brainiac 2, he escaped from Cairn with a group of core members.
The new team was dubbed the R.E.B.E.L.S. and during his time with the team, his feelings grew for Stealth. However, she had no interest in him as she was infatuated with Vril Dox II.
The R.E.B.E.L.S. ship took them ten billion years back in time, where they met an inorganic race called the Kregors. They wanted the R.E.B.E.L.S. brains and would not let them leave. Borbb offered to stay with the Kregors so that the others could leave.
Borb Borbb has not been seen since then, but one might wonder what role Borbb played in sentient development. The Kregors invented brains as standalone power sources. Borbb would have been their template for a more complex organism, with a brain as its center.
- Teleportation: Borb Borbb has the ability to teleport himself, the clothes he is wearing, and, within limits, a certain amount of additional mass which is in contact with him. He teleports by displacing himself into another dimension, traveling through it, and then returning to his own dimension at a certain distance from his point of departure. He consciously determines his point of return.
