Created by Ed Stargard when he was a teenager, presumably in the traditional manner, Brutus was one of four elemental golems designed to aid in Stargard's fight against crime. At some point all other members of the Golems Four were destroyed, leaving only Brutus to guard their creator.
Brutus was created by Grant Morrison and Cameron Stewart. He made his first appearance in Seven Soldiers: Guardian #1.
