Alias: Bram Velsing
Powers: Body armor and weaponry
This Incarnation: Classic
First Appearance: Iron Man #102
Bram Velsing is a Latverian scientist, unsatisfied with serving Doctor Doom whom he referred to as a "grotesque mockery" and thought himself as his superior. Upon learning of Velsing's treacherous ideals, Doom permanently grafts a skull-like cybernetic helmet to Velsing's head, scarring him. Velsing flees, and comes under the care of Victoria Frankenstein who nurses him back to health at Castle Frankenstein. The character gains a variety of weapons and rides the "hellhorse", a mutated bat-winged flying horse genetically engineered by Nathan Garrett. Calling himself the Dreadknight, the character attempts to force more resources from Frankenstein to defeat Doom but is defeated by Iron Man, Frankenstein's Monster, and Victoria's mutated charges, The Children. Velsing is revived by the mystical villains Morgan Le Fay and Mordred, and menaced Captain Britain, Victoria Bentley, and Sean Dolan but is defeated by the Avenger, Dane Whitman. Following Doctor Doom's apparent death at the hands of Onslaught, Dreadknight briefly takes Latveria and battles Spider-Man.
