Fictional backgroundRectify

The alien creatures known as the Brain-Globes of Rambat decided that, in order to succeed in their plan to move Earth to their own Solar system, they must defeat Superboy. When they were unable to gain control of Superboy, they summon Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl of the Legion of Super-Heroes from the future and mentally command the trio to capture him.

After Superboy is defeated, the Brain-Globes of Rambat release their hold on the Legionnaires. When they notice that the Brain-Globes cannot control animals, the Legionnaires gather Krypto the Super-Dog (from Superboy's present), Streaky the Supercat and Beppo (comics) the Super-Monkey (from Superman's present), and Comet (DC Comics) the Super-Horse (from a few weeks in Superman's future) to battle the aliens. The pets defeat the aliens and are named the Legion of Super-Pets, the animal branch of the super club. They are then returned to their proper time periods. Proty II would later join the team.

Beppo and Comet appear in issue #6 of the Krypto the Superdog comic.
