Brute secondary mutation Picture


Henry McCoy of Earth-1298 ( Mutant-X ) was one of the original X-Men. Upon graduation, McCoy began his employment for the Brand Corporation. In his position as genetic researcher, McCoy attempted to isolate the cellular catalyst that causes mutations--using himself as a guinea pig. The results were disastrous. Instead of reversing the mutation, as was his intent, McCoy caused himself to undergo a complete physical metamorphosis. Now, McCoy was a literal beast--a green-skinned, amphibious monster. The most tragic aspect of the entire affair was that his once-superior intellect was virtually gone, and with it, all hope for reversing the transformation. He joined his former teammates in the Six but during the inferno he was duped by Sym and N'astirh and allied with them. The result of which was his legs became goat legs and his feet cloven hooves.

Brute was the first member of the team to discover that Madelyne Pryor had been taken over by the Goblin Force after he saw her kill Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. The Goblin Queen framed Brute for the murder and forced him to ask for his own execution and when he died she resurrected him and forced him to join her. The Brute managed to fight off the Goblin Queen's influence with help of Scotty Summers and rejoined Havok and fought against the Goblin Queen.

During a battle with Professor X Brute was help with a telepathic blast that temporarily restored his intellect. As his restored intellect was only temporary he devised a hologram with all of his intellect that he hoped would develop a cure for Gambit and Bloodstorm's Vampirism and Iceman's inability to turn back to human as well as sending Havok back to his home reality. In the case of Bloodstorm, Gambit and Iceman he was successful. The Hologram was unable to figure out a way to permanently restore Brute's intellect. Brute survived the final battle with the Goblin Force possessed Beyonder.

Brute has recently undergone a secondary mutation that assumed the aspect of a marine mythological beast, legendary, the "Lion of the Ocean", the mythical beast protective of sea that pulled, the marine carriage of God Poseidon. This mutation has extended his intellect the level of the Reed Richards also put he gave predatory instincts more developed and difficult to control.

Powers and Abilities

Aquatic Physiology: Brute possesses a number of superhuman abilities derived from his mutated form. His superhumanly strong physiology enabling him to withstand the great water pressure changes that occur beneath the sea. His blood circulation enables him to withstand freezing water temperatures. As a water-breather, Brute has a number of gills hidden by scales along his throat. These gills enable him to extract sufficient oxygen from ambient water to allow him to function normally while underwater. Brute can live underwater indefinitely.

Superhuman Strength: Brute possesses some degree of superhuman strength. His strength is above average for most Mutants and he can lift about 50 tons.
