Brickbat was a mutant that was infected by the Brood when they attempted to invade Earth. A paramedic named Harry Palmer was implanted with a Queen egg and started infecting mutants to create a Brood force with abilities to rival the X-Men. Numerous mutants were infected including Brickbat, Tension, Temptress, Blindside, Dive-Bomber, Lockup, Spitball and Whiphand.
Brickbat was killed in battle by Colossus and the rest of his infected teammates were slain by the X-Men because they resolved that the Brood's human hosts were beyond saving.
Brickbat was created by Chris Claremont and Marc Silvestri in 1988 and first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #232.
