Kirby was born with his strange ability to stretch and mold the shape of his body. He was fortunate enough to have two wonderful parents who loved him regardless of his abnormality, and they raised him to be a sweet, friendly, and honest boy. When he expressed a desire to become a superhero, his parents were somewhat hesitant to allow him to do so, but it soon became apparent that any wound Kirby sustained would immediately heal itself. Kirby was basically invincible.
In fact, Kirby is one of the few people to survive an attack by the supervillain Aaron Kruger. Kruger’s ability is body part substitution, in which he can replace any of his body parts with those of superhumans and then gain their powers. Kruger used his enchanted sword to lop off Kirby’s right arm. Although the boy was able to quickly re-grow the limb, he was never quite the same smiling, warm boy he had once been.
But, Kirby is still as good as he can be, and he still uses his incredible power to protect the citizens of Caligo from the threat of darkness.
