History

The Brain is a character from the Starlord strip Strontium Dog. He was a reluctant criminal genius from the swamps of planet Q17 who had been kidnapped by a small gang of thugs and forced into helping them take the planet of Larg hostage. After a bomb designed by the Brain was revealed to be a fake by Johnny Alpha, the two bounty hunters came to arrest him. The Brain put up no resistance, instead hoping to use his time in incarceration to further train his Waterworts, semi-intelligent mimics which the Brain had taught to sing the musical Oklahoma!. Unfortunately, this quixotic endeavour was jeopardised when the criminals who kidnapped the Brain started a shoot out with Alpha and a stray laser-blast accidentally killed Cornelius, the Brain's best tenor. In retaliation the Brain blasted out a massive psychic wave which killed all the criminals. Afterwards the Brain was arrested and set to work on training the remaining Waterworts. Johnny promised to give Cornelius a good burial.
