Nothing is known about Broadside prior to his first appearance as a member of Anton Vole's Squad O.
Broadside arrived at 3I headquarters with Squad O looking
for missing scientist Brad Stinier. The Squad attacked 3I HQ, and was countered by 3I troops and two super-powered
agents: Cruiser and Bruiser. The Phoenix Company joins the fray when a semi-conscious Broadside
goes flying through the fence the Phoenix Company was hiding behind. While Broadside is continualy
mindblasted by Oversight, Squad O is almost defeated
when their leader Outlet calls a retreat. The team manages to escape with the use of Outlet's powers and have
not been heard from since.
Broadside has superhuman strength; the exact extent of which is unknown. Broadside makes full
advantage of his larger-than-normal hand size to brutally attack any foe within range. A favored attack of his is a two-hand
smash, where he uses his hands to crush an opponent from both sides. Broadside's superhuman strength does not restrict itself
to his hands; Broadside has in the past been able to create huge crevaces in the ground by simply stomping his foot.
Broadside has shown no appreciable skills beside an excellent fashion sense.
Known Superhuman Powers:
In addition to his superior srength, Broadside apparently has tougher-than-average skin,
able to withstand a variety of attacks.
