History: Brick Stonewall began as simply Rick, a man whose interest in bodybuilding turned into a passion for bodybuilding that in turn transformed into an obsession to become the strongest man on Earth. Ignoring his wife's pleas for him to stop, he began injecting steroids and then headed to South Africa after hearing that a doctor there had developed a new kind of steroid. There Brick fell under the sway of local despot the Commander, a supremacist who wanted to provce to the world that normal humans were superior to genetically engineered ones such as the DNAgents. To this end he had  kidnapped Tank's girlfriend Laurel, using her to lure Tank to Buran to battle Brick in a match he planned to televise. As planned Brick defeated the artificial human, but instead of proving the supremacy of humanity as the Commander had planned, observers noted the lack of morality in Brick, and ironically the level of humanity in the artificially created being.
