Before losing his flesh and blood, Brick Baxter was a sadistic school bully, taking extreme pleasure in tormenting others. His primary targets were Patrick Donovan and his companions, seizing any moment he could in harassing them both physically and emotionally. When he became a cyborg, Brick Baxter was driven completely insane due to the experimental technology that was keeping him alive and a complete lack of sensitivity. His fall to madness was accompanied by an inhuman hatred towards the one who took away his humanity: [[Patrick Donovan]]. To this end, Brick was driven by a blind sense of vengeance towards Patrick and was overly-willing to kill anyone who stood in his way, including the Young Guardians' families. However, despite his insanity and disgust with his condition, Brick relished the power his new body gave him to the point in which he developed a severely arrogant superiority complex. In the end, it was this arrogance that led to Brick's defeat at the hands of the Young Guardians.
