"Nuclear Stepdad" (died 2018) was the second patriarch of a brainwashed "family" that used drugs to enhance their physical capabilities.
The man was brainwashed at Agnews Asylum. Following this, "Nuclear Stepdad" joined his new "family" at their home in St. Louis, Missouri. They continued on their mission to find Rachel Roth, finding Dick Grayson's Porsche at Gold Star, where they beat Gerald for information. They ultimately found the group holed up at Do-Si-Do Motel, but were overpowered and tied up. Having accidentally given away the location of Dr. Adamson, the "family" had their implanted explosives detonated, blowing their heads off.
