Brigade was an early, uninteresting Image Comics book of the early 1990s. It had some generic, cheap “heroes” with a style screaming “early 1990s”.

Since a 1990s tabletop super-hero RPG campaign of mine needed corporate superhuman operatives, I adapted some Brigade characters to the Marvel Universe. These could be useful to others.

Powers and Abilities

A classic flyer/blaster, who wields heat/flames energies.

She’s physically fit and trained in hand-to-hand combat, but not to any exceptional degree.


Rebecca Haller, a German journalist, was determined to make Brigade her next big subject.

Like Günter Walraff  had disguised himself as an immigrant for his landmark expose, she was determined to infiltrate Roxxon Oil’s superhuman team, Brigade. Brigade’s very existence was hotly denied by the oil giant, and Haller wanted to expose their violent and illegal ways.

After some remarkable investigative work, Haller found the Clandestine Operations branch of Roxxon, and petitioned to join Brigade. Roxxon accepted and, using classified tech from the supposedly-closed Brand Technologies labs, enhanced her low-level mutant powers over fire. Now she could fly and turn concrete and steel into slag.

However, Haller found the salary to be had as a member of Brigade much higher than anything she could hope to earn as a journalist. That strongly appealed to her rather material nature. Even though she lives in fear of being uncovered as an infiltrator, the money has made her a reasonably loyal member of Brigade.


See illustration.


Haller is a well-meaning woman with compassion, but her desire for money is overwhelming.

She spends her considerable earning with great taste, in contrast with the rest of the teams whose tastes are not as luxurious. It may be partly due to her mortal fear of being uncovered.

While she’s not a casual killer, she kills just as well as the other members of Brigade. This is a further reason not to go back to her old life.

Not being as rough or as closed as the others, most social interactions in the team revolve around her, especially for the Barros brothers. She’s about the only one to whom Coldsnap can talk about his condition.
