Character Design Challenge #340: Brains!!

Hey folks! I'm back. Thanks so much for your  kind thoughts and messages. It was quite the experience! Here is a picture of me wearing the $60,000 frame that limits one's head movement during surgery.

When I saw it, I asked to be referred to as Bane rather than Mr. Juby. Even the surgical team played along. For something that was literally screwed into your skull it was shockingly comfortable.

So your CDC challenge this week is to use the frame design as an inspiration, or jumping off point, to create a hero or villain that harnesses the power of their own brains, or limits the brain powers of their enemies.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games.
