Crossgen was one of the new super-hero comics publishers that emerged during the 1990s. But that was years after the big wave with Image, the Ultraverse, Dark Horse Heroes, etc.. Crossgen started in 1998. Like most such new shared super-universes it was interesting, had potential, and was ultimately short-lived.

Powers and Abilities

Brok is super-strong. And his body has been further reinforced by surgery and technological implants, making him the strongest known living being in the Chimeran Empire.

Brok has demonstrated feats of extreme strength, including ripping structures weighting thousands of tons off the ground and using them as a club. Or knocking out the invulnerable Sara Janning with a few blows.

Brok Chimeran can also perform orbital re-entry and landing unassisted on most planets, easily walking out of the crater.


The Chimeran family has been the imperial family of the Chimeran Empire for generations. Their genetics have been constantly refined by all available means to tend toward immortality and godlike power. Those who are allowed to grow up thus have super-powers. They are collectively known as the Progeny.

At 26, Brok is the youngest living child of the Emperor. Hhe and two other members of the Progeny, including the probable successor of the Emperor, were sent to the ice planet Severan.

They were to secure the genetic material of one Sara Janning. Janning was determined by the Emperor to be the missing link toward the ultimate evolution of the Chimeran genetic line.

The three succeeded where the regular armed forces had previously failed. They locked Janning in a medical pod so the Emperor could probe her mind through VR. But their captive woke up despite the super-heavy sedation and blew up the vessel, apparently killing all three.


See illustrations.


Brok has limited cognitive faculties – mostly on the level of a small child. However, he is not child-like, but mentally handicapped.

Most of the time, he doesn’t speak and just follow orders from his much smarter siblings, trying not to be too clumsy.


“Daddy’s going to be mad.”

DC Universe History

Brok would be perfect material for an alien invasion, or any scenario requiring a cookie-cutter but visually interesting brick with Kryptonian-class  power.
