History

The Brain is the leader of the Brotherhood of Evil, arch-enemies of the Doom Patrol. Although at one point a brilliant albeit french scientist, a tragic accident has left him merely a brain in a metallic case, with no other ways to preserve him. The accident might have been caused by Niles Caulder, and he has sworn his revenge. While he is capable of communicating and masterminding brilliant criminal exploits, there is little else he can do. He is most frequently seen with his companion and lover Monsieur Mallah, a super-intelligent gorilla with a machine gun.

Early Career

Following his death, a man's assistant was able to preserve his brain in a liquid filled container. The Brain became the head of the Brotherhood of Evil, whose secret headquarters was in an exclusive girls' school in Paris.[1] Under his leadership, the Brotherhood became the most powerful crime syndicate in the world.

The Brain seldom allowed others to know he was a disembodied brain.

The Brain had taken a superior ape (Monsieur Mallah) and, through secret teaching methods and shock treatments, gave the ape an IQ of 178 - genius status (above 160).

Eventually the Brain's plans led him into conflict with the Doom Patrol.

The Cloning Business

The Brain in another version of his "body"

After a battle with the Teen Titans some years ago, Mallah discovered his fist was covered with blood from Beast Boy. Brain took the blood and used it to create a crude clone. This began one of the Mallah and the Brain' more lucrative ventures, creating clones of various humans and selling them to wealthy clients. Though none of the clones were perfect duplicates of the metas from whom they were cloned, and though all of them suffered from cellular self-degeneration, Mallah and the Brain were nonetheless successful at selling them. At their height, they even managed to obtain some of Superman's blood and clone him, but the resulting aggregate was so powerful that they had no assurance that it could be controlled. The degeneration problem was eventually brought under control with a topical antibacterial retardant.

The Brain as Ultimax

Despite the success, the Brain grew frustrated and depressed by his own lack of a body and subsequent inability to consummate his love for Mallah. Worse, the methods that had been used to make his brain viable outside of a body had made his DNA unreplicable. Fearing that his beloved master would kill himself, Mallah suggested a partnership with Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, hoping that the mad industrialist might figure out something that Mallah and the Brain had not realized.

Ignominious End

While trapped on the government's Prison Planet, the Brain and Monsieur Mallah arrive at Joker's camp, and Mallah asks Grodd to speak with him away from the others.

Mallah proposes to Grodd that as fellow Gorillas, the natural kings of the jungle, they should team up, surely through their combined might being able to rule the entire place by themselves. Grodd laughs at Mallah for considering himself, an "absurd science experiment," comparable to "a proud child of Gorilla City." Mallah strikes Grodd and calls him a beast, causing Grodd to fly into a rage and try to kill him. Although Mallah also has a gun, and shoots Grodd several times, Grodd still has the upperhand, and is about to kill Mallah when Brian interjects, pleading for Mallah's life. Thinking better of it, Grodd picks Brain up, and beats Mallah to Death with Brain, smashing Brain's protective hull in the process, and killing him as well. Before eeking out his last breath, Mallah says he dies happy, taking solace in that he and Brain will finally be able to be together forever.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Abilities

  • Genius-Level Intellect

    Weaknesses

  • Zero defensive capabilities: While the Brain's container is capable of keeping him alive in his disembodied state, it lacks any self movement or defensive features. As such, the Brain is entirely dependent on Mallah for movement and protection. Actually, if you can't point out his obvious weaknesses upon looking at him, there's something wrong with you.

Notes

  • The Brain appears in alternate media in both the Teen Titans animated series and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

dialogue file: None
actor: none

Brain is an intelligent albino Mole rat with an enlarged braincase, the brother of Keeng Ra'at. He is the unlikely leader of the renewal cult in the ghoul town of Gecko and seeks to take over the world. He lives in an underground cave adjacent to the Gecko nuclear reactor. He loves Cheezy Poofs, and will ask the player to give him some if the player has any in their inventory as he can smell them.

In the short term, he seeks to build an alliance between Gecko and Vault City based on power from Gecko being sent to Vault City in exchange for medical research on how to "restore" the ghouls to humanity. The cult is symbolized by the ankh, and its members wear ankh necklaces. The renewal cultists seek to "renew," i.e. become human again.

Appearances in games

Brain appears only in Fallout 2.

Behind the scenes

  • Brain is likely a reference to Pinky and the Brain, a now-discontinued television series about the attempts of a pair of mice to take over the world.
  • The ankh necklace and the goal of "renewal" is a reference to Logan's Run.

Starwars

Up to date as of February 04, 2010

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

A brain.

In most species, the brain was the control center of the central nervous system and it served as the center of cognitive abilities. It was found in most species in the galaxy and was usually located in the skull. Its severe injury or loss resulted in death.

The B'omarr Monks removed the brains of enlightened monks and put them in a droid walker. Since the brain regulated virtually all of the being's activities and was the center of a being's consciousness, the brain transplantation resulted in the movement of the monk's identity from body to droid walker. The Anzati fed on the Soup, or brains, of others.

During an attack on the first Death Star, Daala suffered a shrapnel wound to her head, forcing Cerean neurosurgeon Abu Banu and Doctors Kornell Divini and Roa to remove the piece from her brain. They identified it going into one of her two hippocampi and the adjacent cortex as well as the Cornu Ammonis fields one through three and the subiculum. They agreed that it might lead to some memory loss, as much as a full standard year.[1]
