The Brain's strange headgear

Brain

Fawcett comics


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Background

  • Real Name: Warden Loomis
  • Marital Status: Single
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Group Affiliation: Death Battalion
  • Base Of Operations: Unknown (same as Mr. Scarlet)


Powers and Abilities

He’s a brilliant planner. That’s it. He also claims to be knowledgeable about poisons as he threatens Mr. Scarlet with a tarantula.


History

AFAIK, this “the Brain” only showed up in America’s Greatest Comics #1. An (implied) Nazi, the Brain secretly engineered for six super-villains to escape from El-Catraz prison. Afterwards, Warden Loomis quit his job. Then these villains planned to initiate a “putsch for control of America,” involving the deaths of six key men.

Each villain was sent to kill one of these men. After Mr. Scarlet and Pinky defeated them all, the heroes infiltrated the gang (pretending to be the villains Laughing Skull and Horned Hood), and beat up all the bad guys. In particular, Pinky defeated the Brain.


Description

He is bald, wears a wire mesh spherical helmet, a long-sleeved tunic, pants, and a cape.


Quotes

“I engineered your jail break. You are all master criminals. Our program has been launched.”


DC Universe History

In the post-Crisis Universe, the Brain would still be a Mr. Scarlet foe. He would likely be the sort of person to restart a new Secret Society of Super-Villains. Perhaps he would even join up with Mr. Skeleton… both villains being named after body parts.
