Possibly the most successful criminal undertaking of all time, the Brick has long been a menace to Marvel Universe heroes and their allies. It's been around since the creation of the Marvel Universe, and yet, for some bizarre reason known only to the creators of the Marvel Universe, Earth's heroes have yet to bring this mortar-bound perpetrator of assault, murder, genetic experimentation, and hate crimes to justice! To fully understand how deep the savagery of this nefarious organization goes, let's take a quick tour of its history.
The Brick has long been a brutal member of Spidey's rogues for decades now. Just look at these crimes:
Unlawful Genetic Experimentation
|He did kind of deserve it, wearing a lab|
coat to a construction site and all.
Here, we see a group of bricks, or "wall" as they're colloquially known, emerge from their hiding places at a local construction site and trap a once happy high school student, experiment upon him and transform him into a hideous monstrosity in their own image. The Brick has the audacity to play God with hapless teenagers and yet, no justice has been served. Fortunately for the general Marvel Universe public, it appears the Brick's experiment failed spectacularly and the Brick soon abandoned its scientific ventures.
Murder of Captain George Stacy

to the list of charges.

|Truly a heartless group.|
The Brick has also been a longtime foe of the X-men, however its crimes are often motivated by hate and discriminatory biases in this area.

Elsewhere in the Marvel Universe:
Of course, the Brick's violent tendencies are not limited to Spider-man and the seemingly defenseless mutants. They've also been spotted attacking other members of the Marvel universe.
Assault and possible Attempted Rape

in terms of motive.

However, it appears that the Brick has set its anarchic sights a bit higher recently. While images of this attack aren't quite in full detail, it appears the Brick is stepping up to a national threat level, seen here attempting to take out the former Captain America.
Assaulting a Police Officer

Once again, the Brick uses the guise of an Asgardian god of fear returning in order to perpetrate its crimes unpunished. However, by assaulting a man with the Avengers at his disposal, has the Brick finally gone too far? Will it finally be phased out of existence by new cement and steel constructions? One can only hope that this longtime organization intent on pure evil will finally receive its righteous comeuppance soon.
