Skills and abilities: Skilled inventor in the area of robotics, computing and advanced bionics.

Powers: He has super human strength equal to Luke Cage thanks to bionics. In addition to this he uses a variety of technological weapons and a power suit to supply him with additional powers.


He started life as a weak and sickly and almost illiterate child from Brownsville. In a bid to fit in he joined a local gang but was always caught. At sixteen he was sent to prison where he honed his intellect. He volunteered for a project in computing and in a year he was teaching his teachers. After leaving prison he continued to hone his skills and even implanted himself with bionics to grant him superpowers. He partnered with the Cheshire Cat who became his lackey as they tried to put an end to another Villain called the Baron. They used Luke Cage to deal with him after their fight ended in a draw. When Cage realized he was used he tracked down Big Brother who had already set his plan in motion; he would shut off the cities electricity if he was not given a billion dollars; this would result in thousands of deaths. Luke Cage caught up with him and he was seemingly killed in the explosion though Cheshire Cat survived.
