History

Bres was a citizen of the Atlantean lost city of Thierna Na Oge and a respected member of the Tuatha de Danaan. She served on the ruling city council known as the Conclave of Twelve under the leadership of her sister, King Nuada Silverhand. However, Bres was ambitious and coveted the throne for herself. She convinced the other eleven Conclave members that Nuada had fallen out of favor with the goddess, Dana, and needed to abdicate her seat.

Like many members of the Tuatha De Danann, Bres was capable of wielding great magic, but she was wild and untrained in the proper use of her power. Regardless, it was still enough to unseat her sister and declare herself the new King of Thierna Na Oge. Bres placed Nuada in a dungeon cell, but only after having her right arm torn off at the hands of a vicious Firbolg.

During this time, the Atlantean hero known as Aquaman discovered the lost city of Thierna Na Oge and embarked upon a quest to recover the stolen Royal Seal of Atlantis. King Bres' mages discovered Aquaman and, believing him to be a spy, quickly captured him, placing him inside the same cell with Nuada. With Aquaman's help, Nuada was able to escape from the dungeon and placed herself in self-imposed exile. Bres continued to rule over Thierna Na Oge for several years until Nuada returned to reclaim her rightful crown.

Powers

  • Atlantean Physiology: Although a splinter species of baseline humanity, Atlanteans have evolved over the centuries and have adapted physical characteristics that make them more suited for life beneath the sea. A common misperception is that Atlanteans are amphibious. While this is partially true to some extent, modern-day Atlanteans can only exist outside of water for a limited duration before they begin to asphyxiate. Because Atlanteans have to adapt to living at varying pressure levels, their bodies are physically much heartier than the average human being, granting them:
  • Sorcery: Bres can tap into the mystical energy of the Earth in order to wield a variety of supernatural effects. However, her flagrant and aggressive nature precludes her from ever becoming a truly focused mage.

    Abilities

Leadership: Bres possesses great leadership skills and can command the respect of those in service to her. She is likewise a master manipulator, and has used the art of diplomacy to satisfy her own selfish aims.

Strength level

Bres' strength level is several times greater than that of an average surface world human. The full physical potential of her race is unknown.

Weaknesses

Asphyxiation: Atlanteans can only exist outside of water for a limited period of time or else they will dehydrate, asphyxiate and ultimately die.

Paraphernalia

Equipment

Bres has access to one of the original twelve Zodiac Crystals of pre-Cataclysm Atlantis. The crystal is housed inside of an artifact called the Lia Fail, and allows her access to even greater stores of magical energy.

Trivia

  • The ruling monarch of Thierna Na Oge is commonly referred to as King regardless of their gender.

History

Around the twelfth Century A. D., as the realm of Avalon began to fall, the Fomor made plans to overwhelm the defenses of Amergin, the last defender of Avalon, and to gain access to Earth. Amergin, via his descendent, Dr. Druid, summoned the Avengers to the past to assist himself and his ally the Black Knight. Bres prophesized to the Fomor that the outcome would be advantageous, but he did not tell them that he meant only for himself. As the Fomor attacked the Avengers, Bres slipped past them, assaulted the Black Knight, and accessed the portal to the modern era, via Amergin. Bres arrived in Avengers mansion to find the inert forms of Dr. Druid and Iron Man, whom he prepared to slay.

Fortunately, at the same time (if you consider the amount of time that had passed since Bres left Avalon), Balor of the Fomor sent Thor and She-Hulk back to the modern era. Bres proved able to hold the two of them off, hoping to immobilize Thor until the 60 seconds without his hammer elapsed, but She-Hulk recalled his weakness to iron, and smashed him in the back with Iron Man. Thor used the opening and clocked Bres at the same time, dropping him like a sack of potatoes.

Bres was detained in Project: PEGASUS (Potential Energy Groups, Alternate Sources, United States), where a machine was used to infuse him with ferrous (or ferric, I don't know which--it's iron, either way) ions, that effectively eliminated his powers and kept him helpless.

A rash of power failures at Project: PEGASUS momentarily halted the flow of ion particles to Bres, and allowed him to stop them permanently, unbenknonst to his technicians. Bres sensed the power within the youth, Bobby Wright, aka Captain Hero (see comments), and wished to possess his power, as well as seduce his innocence. Still posing as a prisoner, Bres called to Bobby, convincing him to join forces within him in return for promising to find Bobby's real mother (who had died years before). Bres began to manipulate the environment within Project: PEGASUS, slaying a few of the guards, as well as the supervillain Solarr, who was an inmate at the facility. He was opposed by Iron Fist and the Falcon, who had come to visit the facility, and the Guardsman, who was the security chief. Bres' powers seduced the Guardsman, who then beat up the Falcon. Iron Fist defeated the Guardsman, and Bres found that there was no "dark side" within Iron Fist that he could call forth. Instead, Bres bound Iron Fist with magic shackles, gave Bobby Wright a flaming sword, and instructed him to slay Danny. Bobby rebelled, and as Captain Hero attacked Bres. Bres easily overpowered the novice hero, but the distraction allowed Iron Fist to get free. Danny flattened Bres with his (surprise) Iron Fist, and Bres was returned to his manacles.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Bres is a magical being of impressive power. He has been shown to simultaneously hold off Thor, keep his hammer, Mjolnir, encased within a forcefield (overriding Odin's enchantment that causes it to return to where it was thrown), and fire destructive energy blasts at another foe. He possesses at least Class 25-75 strength and durability. He can alter his shape, fly, and has limited precognitive abilities. He can call forth the "dark side" of individuals, forcing them to relive their darkest memories, which either simply demoralizes them, or brings them under his control. He can either cast illusions, or manipulate the environment around him to some degree. He is susceptible to magic, and has a weakness for the metal iron, which can disrupt his magical powers.

Trivia

(Celtic Myth) The Fomor (Fomore) are the original spirits of Ireland, and they withheld mortal colonization of the land for millenia.

Realizing she needed a force for good among the Fomore, he goddess Danu (Gaea to the Greeks) mated with Elathan, the son of Delbaeth. She gave birth to the first of the Danaans: Dagda and Leir, Amaethon and Gwydion and Arianrhod and Penardun and hid them away from their father until the time came that they could overthrow the Fomore.

Elathan, however, raped the Danaan goddess Eriu, and she gave birth to Bres. He was accepted among the Danaans and they never knew his actual parentage. After the leader of the Danaans, Nuadhu, lost his hand in battle, the Danaans chose Bres from among their own to lead them. Bres, however, soon ended up turning over Ancient Ireland and Avalon back to his father's relatives, the Fomore. Nuadhu had his hand restored for one of silver by Dian Cecht the leech (healer) and led the Danaans into battle once more. This time, they completely eradicated the Fomore from Earth and exiled them and Bres to the Dark Realm, a dimension beyond Otherworld/Avalon.
