Danny is a living, sentient street. He can communicate through signs and billboards but cannot speak, see or hear through normal means.
Danny the Street was captured by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and when Superboy broke into his area, he attempted to warn Superboy to leave before it's too late. However, Superboy disregarded his warning and assumed that he was seeing hallucinations, before promptly being defeated by Rose Wilson.
Becoming stronger overtime, Danny became so powerful that he transformed into an otherworldly amusement park, calling himself "Dannyland". With his new strength, Danny developed the power to actually spawn sentient life, accidentally bringing his fiction comic book character Casey Brinke to life. Casey found herself in the real world, unaware that her entire history was created as a figment of Danny's imagination until the day she was returned to him.
An evil alien corporation known as the Vectra, knowing of Danny's existence and new powers, attempted to detain him and force him to produce an endless supply of commodities that they could resell as a fast food chain. Danny, needing help, called upon the Doom Patrol to help protect him.
