Boston Brand aka Deadman is one of the supporting protagonists in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
He is voiced by Michael Rosenbaum.
Boston Brand was a star trapeze artist for Haley's Circus. Brand was chosen as a random target of the Hook, an assassin vying to join the international League of Assassins. Instead of dying and moving on, Brand was restored by Rama Kushna, the goddess of balance, for his good deeds. Brand became his circus namesake, Deadman, a ghost. Deadman became discouraged that he would never be allowed to cross over to the next plane of existence and concluded he was cursed to wander the Earth. Unknown to him, Batman took on the case but was unsuccessful in solving it.
While in London, Deadman met Batman who astral projected his consciousness in search of help to free him being buried alive. Batman managed to convince Deadman that he may have a higher purpose. The two confronted Gentleman Ghost as he raised an army of undead convicts. During the battle, Deadman used his ability to possess others. When he leaves the person's body, they have no recollection of what happened and a temporary sensation. After the Ghost's defeat, Deadman was given the opportunity to cross over but he decided to be a hero and remained a ghost. Three months later, he helped Batman fight off members of the Triad.
