Fictional character biography

Brynocki is a toy-like robot created by Mordillo, an insane assassin, an adversary of Shang-Chi. Mordillo's intent is for Brynocki to serve as his assistant and comic relief. Brynocki has the ability to instantly change the appearance of his clothing and his choice of clothes reflects his emotional state of the moment.

Rom Spaceknight

While Rom and Starshine are flying over the East China Sea they enter into what Brynocki considers Mordillo's airspace and he launches an attack on them but the Spaceknights survive and retaliate. Shot down along with his boss Brynocki leaves Mordillo's skeleton behind so he can get back to the main base quicker and launch a new attack but he inadvertently places it on top of a pit of quicksand so it sinks. Rom and Starshine determine that Brynocki is not involved with their own enemies and leave the island and Brynocki goes to retrieve his boss but can't find Mordillo's now submerged remain. Brynocki decides he's been abandoned and needs to find a new friend.

Iron Man

Many years later, Arcade, also an assassin, finds and employs Brynocki, using his former master's island as a new Murderworld. Iron Man reprograms Brynocki, who helps Iron Man defeat Arcade. The Thing also becomes heavily involved in the situation. Brynocki takes on the features of the armored Avenger.
