Powers and Abilities

Sunder is a brick. I’ve added the Systemic antidote power for no particular reason, but it seems somehow fitting.


Sunder was just a member of the Morlocks, a tribe of mutants which used to live in the sewers below Manhattan before being nearly exterminated by the Marauders.

Sunder seems to always have been the henchman of the Morlocks’ leader, a woman called Callisto. He was extremely loyal to her, and she often gave him missions involving leveling obstacles, fighting superhumanly strong opponents and other odd errants. He survived the Marauders’ massacre along with Callisto, and found a refuge on Muir Island.

However, some time later, another band of gun-toting psychos called the Reavers attacked Muir Island. An impromptu band of “X-Men” was organized to fight them off, of which Sunder was a member. He was shot in the back during the battle and died within minutes.


Sunder was a bald giant bum. He was 7’1” and 245lbs but looked like battered street person wearing rags. He had an obvious hunchback.


Sunder was a simple man with simple tastes. He could be used as a template for a second-string brick, but could also be developed into an interesting NPC (for instance, in my campaign, it was revealed that he was a fallen crooked lawyer).

DC Universe History

There seems to be far fewer pure bricks in the DCU than in the MU, so he could be a welcome addition. A band of superhuman bums is an interesting concept, and could be used almost anywhere.
