Rol Purtha, known as Dream Boy, is a comic book fictional character, a DC Comics superhero and comes from the planet Naltor. He first appeared in Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes #18 at Legion Headquarters just after the death of his predecessor Dream Girl, presumably as a replacement by Naltor's High Seer.[1] However, he later made a cryptic comment that he was not sent by Naltor.[2]

Fictional character biography[edit]

Dream Boy, along with Brainiac 5, received a visit from Dream Girl while sleeping.[3] She told him the Legion would use an extremely powerful Phantom Zone projector, built by Brainiac 5 and delivered by Mon-El, in their final move against the Dominators. At Cosmic Boy's demand, Dream Boy told the Legionnaires and the Wanderers that Brainiac 5 would build a bomb to kill the Dominators. The only people who knew the truth about the "bomb" were; Brainiac 5, Cosmic Boy, Dream Boy, and Phantom Girl.

Dream Boy was the first to reveal to the Legionnaires Dream Girl's new existence in The Dreaming.[4] Dream Boy was listed as "off duty" in Legion of Super-Heroes (vol. 5) #39.[5]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Dream Boy has the ability to see visions of the future in his dreams. However, as a second class precognitive, he foresees events seconds to hours before they occur. Although he can also focus his visions on objects, such as predicting Brainiac's security codes.
