Biography

Brand is a SHIELD agent who has been secretly seconded to the FBI under General Nick Fury’s orders. Fury had been growing concerned about the level of cooperation between the FBI’s Mutant Division and the X-Men. In addition, the apparent reach of Agent Garrison Kane’s family allowed him to 'subvert' Luke Cage, a SHIELD agent in Asia. Fury, known for his distrust of potential security risks, decided that the status quo was carried too much potential risk to nationa security to be allowed to continue unmonitored. However, DAD Duncan has an impeccable record and plenty of political support, especially in the higher levels of the Bureau and the Department of Justice. Fury decided that he wanted someone to assess the relationship objectively and secretly, and that person was Agent Abigail Brand.

Agent Brand is an open mutant; possessing green hair and the ability to generate blue flame. Ambitious and a touch ruthless, Brand made her reputationn in the ATF before being selected for SHIELD. She's proved to be a resourceful agent with a track record of success, however, her ambitious and willingness to sell out other agents to superiours have not made her well liked amoungst her peers. Brand was ‘transferred’ to Duncan from a north-west field office, hiding her real rank and position in SHIELD's hierarchy. While Duncan wasn't impressed by the sudden imposition, he understood the political dangers in fighting it, and instead did his best to welcome Brand to the Bureau.

Brand was tasked to work with Kane on a number of cases. This has proved to be fraught with conflict: in the Sons of Liberty investigation, she went behind Garrison's back to call in SHIELD to take over a hostage situation; in Milwaukee, she shot a fleeing suspect - if he had not been a mutant, it would have been fatal. Her demeanor and attitude have also done little to endear her to her colleagues, which also includes Theresa Cassidy, whom she treats as a raw recruit.

After the disappearance of two Genoshan refugees, Brand assisted Kane and Terry in their continued investigation, helping them chase up leads on the disappearances of several other mutants that shared similar MOs with that of the Genoshans. When the X-Men set a trap to capture the person responsible for buying young mutants, Brand helped in the capture of the man and woman responsible, as well as the interrogation that briefly followed.

In September 2012 she accompanied Kane to Minnesota to investigate a biker claiming to be Thor. After a week of investigating, she was called back to DC, only to return a few days later with a team from SWORD, taking control of the situation in Minnesota and bringing Thor into custody. It was later revealed that she'd been promoted to director of SWORD. Since then, she has been focused on her new agency although did take time to ensure that Garrison would not face charges from the events in Minnesota.

Powers/Abilities

Brand possesses the ability to generate blue flame of up to high intensity. She can project it across short distances and wrap herself in it as a kind of protective shield. It also allows her to withstand fire and heat to a significant level. However, Brand rarely uses her powers, even in combat, perfering her sidearm.
