Marvel and DC Bricks

This is a list of some of the more major "Brick" characters in Marvel and DC Comics. For those who don't know, "Brick" pertains to a character whose main schtick is super strength and durability, and nothing else save maybe a melee weapon of some kind. In essence a "tank". No other powers, not even flying, so guys like Superman and Thor do not count as Bricks.

And so without further adieu, here is a list of the main Bricks in Marvel and DC Comics in no particular order. I will add more names to this list if I am told of other characters that qualify as bricks.

List items

  • No list of Marvel and DC bricks would be complete without the Hulk, although his more powerful incarnations are arguably above Brick-level.

  • The ever-loving blue-eyed Thing, my personal favorite.

  • Marvel's main "evil" Brick.

  • The X-Men's chief Brick.

  • Even though his brains are his main strength, Beast sill counts as a brick.

  • The main brick of the Avengers

  • Alpha Flight's main Brick.

  • This one's admittedly debatable, but I think he counts personally, especially if its Mac Gargan Venom we're talking about.

  • Definitely a brick. And about as smart as a real one too.

  • Another Spider-Man villain who counts as a Brick, albeit not as much of one as Rhino

  • All four members are bricks.

  • As one of the Hulk's arch-foes, this makes sense.

  • As A-Bomb.

  • I confess to being hesitant to list Absorbing Man as a brick since his power is absorbtion, not super strength. But since most of the time his absorbtion translates to super strength and durability I suppose he can count.

  • Absorbing Man's ex. And an enemy of...

  • Let me just say right now that I don't like She-Hulk. I know everyone else loves her, and its not hard to guess why, but I personally am not a fan. But regardless she is definitely a brick.

  • And now we begin the DC bricks. When Wonder Woman can't fly I'd argue she counts as this, albeit a particularly powerful one

  • ESPECIALLY the DCAU version. Not the current Earth 2 version though.

  • There have been a couple different Shaggy Men, but all of them are text-book bricks.

  • Member of the Secret Six and more or less the group's main source of (dark) comic relief alongside Rag-Doll.

  • Darkseid's son, though he wishes it wasn't so. Essentially a talking punching bag for Superman to beat up from time to time.

  • I'm actually not sure about this one. I may remove her if I get enough objections.

  • More Marvel examples. We now have Ulik, King of the Rock Trolls and minor Thor villain.

  • Arguably.

  • Probably too powerful to qualify as a brick, but I'm including him anyway.

  • While I personally believe that the DC Ares is too powerful and has too many abilities other then Super Strength to qualify as a brick, I have no problem putting the much less cool Marvel version on the list.

  • Truth be told I don't know much about Wendigo, but from what little I've seen of him he seems to be a brick. Be sure to correct me if I'm wrong.

  • Minor female DC villain

  • An even more minor female DC villain

  • Ditto.

  • Especially the Young Justice version.

  • The Atomic Skull.

  • Brother of Shimmer and a Teen Titans villain.

  • Well if he didn't have if healing factor that is.

  • Another one who's probably too powerful to count as a Brick. If nothing else, his "self-piloting" form tended to fight like a (really powerful) brick with a few high-powered energy blasts thrown in for good measure.
