  • This article assumes that you’ve read our main article about the Overmaster’s Cadre.
  • The New Extremists have but capsule entries with speculative stats, since there’s so little material about them.

Background

  • Real Name: Unrevealed
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: New Extremists ; Cadre
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Height: 6’10” Weight: 900 lbs.

Powers and Abilities

Brute has superhuman bulk and strength, and could engage a weakened Wonder Woman in hand-to-hand combat. His intelligence and initiative seemed abysmal, and he never really spoke. His colleague Meanstreak just gives him simple orders – usually to hit something – and he sticks with her.

Unlike the rest of the merry band, Brute keeps his HPs for LDD and perhaps an occasional RV increase. Against powerful opponents such as Wonder Woman, he’s more tenacious than efficient.


History

See the Cadre entry for context about the New Extremists. Brute likely is a space alien, perhaps from Almerac.


Description

See illustrations.

The Brute contemplates eating a child


Personality

An unwavering brute and killer, Brute seems to have a near-animalistic mind. He apparently eats people.


Quotes

“Guhuhhh !”

(Seeing a kid) “Huh uhhh huhhh eat !!!”
