Mind over Matter
I’m through playing games with you, Crusaders!
Go forth, my minions!
Originally from the planet K-Shazor, Brain Emperor’s brain was modified to be hyper-efficient. These modifications, along with the Brain Emperor’s own mutations, gave him vast mental powers which he used to become ruler of his world. After being overthrown by his own people, he fled his planet and set his sights on Earth.
On Earth, he has become the world’s most feared super-villain. He has repeatedly clashed with The Mighty Crusaders and is responsible for many of their greatest tragedies. Long thought dead, the Brain Emperor’s return led to the formation of the New Crusaders and when several of their members fell in battle against him, he cemented his position as the most dangerous foe any hero has ever faced. His current whereabouts are unknown but it is only a matter of time before he returns.
The Brain Emperor is not a particularly nuanced villain – he wanted to take over the world for his own amusement and is willing to kill, maim, or mind-control anyone to accomplish this. He often uses small armies of super-villains to wear down his enemies before arriving on the scene himself. These minions often serve out of fear but if need be, he’ll mind control them into working for him.
