He's better than a clothing rack; he's DC's #7 strangest superhero!

Conceptualized by the hippie movement in the 60s, artist and writer Joe Simon brought one of the weirdest characters ever to our attention - but only for a moment. That's because Brother Power the Geek (#1 Oct 1968) lasted for only 2 issues.

It was just too strange, too...crazy, for a mannequin to be brought to life with a bolt of lightning, and then be endowed with super strength and speed. Oddly enough, though, that's just what happened. Wearing his "peaceful" t-shirt and shabby clothing, Brother Power embarked, a super-powered doll determined to make things right.

Of course, that's not even the weirdest part of Brother Power's story. More...

You can follow DC's Top 10 Strangest Superheroes here; this is a weekly countdown provided by TSL, going all the way to #1.

Brother Power the Geek is a product of Joe Simon, also the co-creator of Captain America and Bucky. Did you know that Mr. Simon was also Marvel Comics first Editor-in-Chief?Did you know he was responsible for hiring Stan "The Man" Lee? 

If you're interested in learning more about him, this illustrated autobiography is the compelling source for information from an era that starts back in the depression.
