Chameleon Boy and the two other Legionnaires save the Dominators.

In the 31st Century Dominators are on a spacecraft at the edge of the source wall praying to the gods of order and chaos to forgive their transgressions of going against the master plan and searching for something more than dominion, and are fully ready to be punished resigning to their faith.

They are shocked when they are pulled up by a tractor beam, finding themselves to be rescued by the Legion members Brainiac 5, Chameleon Boy and Lightning Lad who are about to send them back into Dominator Space. Lighting Lad questions the Legion's rescue if they wanted to die. Brainiac 5 points out that Kal-El would have done the exact same thing. An alarm alerts them to the fact that the Source Wall beginning to crack and expel a strange form of energy that is all over the charts which Chameleon Boy refers to as looking to the readings say that it all amounts to "nothing". To avoid destruction the Legion, first transporting Dominator back to their territory, escape into a hyperspace jump back to Earth.

Horrifyingly the 'nothing' has followed them and is still gaining. It is an entropy wave that is now travelling in space and time erasing the past, present and future. The wave is reaching a focal point in the present day 21st century and so the Legion race to intercept, with Brainiac 5 creating the Legion Protocol Seven as a way to contact all Legionnaires.

In the Comics

Reep Daggle Pre-Zero Hour 004

Chameleon Boy as he appears in the comics.

Over the years there have been three primary versions of the Legion of Superheroes, but in all three Reep Daggle, also known as Chameleon Boy, has been a member. He is from the planet Durla, where everyone has the power to change their physical form. Reep and his twin sibling Liggt were raised by their maternal aunt Ji, until he and his brother were forced to battle to the death for the Durlan Right of Survival, which Reep won. Growing into his teens, Reep began to understand that Durlans with their protean abilities generally were not trusted and were otherwise ill treated among humans. Reep decided that he should counter this attitude by providing a positive example of his species as a superhero. To do so, he applied for membership in the Legion, and the organization was pleased to recruit him in sympathy with his social aims. Chameleon Boy was also an exceptional detective; his deductive prowess coupled with his shapeshifting abilities led to his being named the permanent head of the Legion's Espionage Squad.

During the Five Year Gap Chameleon Boy was killed in battle fighting Dominion troops.

In the Zero Hour reboot, Reep was known simply as Chameleon. This time, he was the son of Durla's spiritual leader and heir to that title. The Durlan people would repeatedly attempt to get Reep to assume his father's position, but Reep steadfastly refused, believing he served his people better as part of the Legion.

In the Threeboot, the character was still referred to as Chameleon, but is now portrayed as a completely androgynous humanoid.

The events of the Infinite Crisis miniseries have apparently restored a close analogue of the Pre-Crisis Legion to continuity. Chameleon Boy was once again a long-serving member of the Legion. t called for a specific team of Legionnaires including Reep to live for a time in the 21st century to ensure several crucial events in history came to pass. Once that mission was accomplished, Reep and his friends returned to the 31st century and rejoined the Legion of Super-Heroes proper.
