The Hell-Rider wiki last edited by fesak on 01/16/14 09:17AM View full history

History

After graduating from Harvard, Brick Reese is drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam.  There, he's wounded with a bullet to the base of the skull.  Since the wound is inoperable, Brick grants doctors permission to try the experimental drug Q-47 on him.  The doctors say, "We don't know what kind of side-effects this might have."  After a month of daily shots, the slug dissolves and Brick gains tremendous strength.  However, since his powers are only intermittent, he puts them from his mind, returns home, and takes a job with the Los Angeles law firm of Williams and Williams. 
 
Only when rock singer/client Julie Storm is abducted does he soup-up his motorcycle, design a costume and put his occassionally heightened muscles to work as Hell-Rider.
 
Hell-Rider has a black belt in karate to fall back on when his muslces fail.  His Harley sportster motorcycle is equipped with a flame-thrower under the headlights, rocket boosters for a nearly vertical ascent, napalm tanks and a jet which throws out an oil slick from the front. 
 
There were only two issues of Hell-Rider.  A third was completed, but never published.
