Brains is a punk who is introduced in Spawn issue #19 along with his buddies Link, Smokey and Divvy. They immediately try to initiate a fight with Spawn and Houdini on the rooftop of an apartment building. Equipped with a jagged-edged knife he goes straight for Houdini with the aid of his 2 thugs, Smokey and Divvy. Without hesitation, Houdini cites a few words and causes Brains to collapse to the ground and his head split open, spilling his brains all over the concrete - a visible illusion, but believable non-the-less. Nothing is heard from Brains after this issue, but it is assumed that he and his tied-up friends are apprehended by the NYPD.
