FIGHT-BRIGADE

Membership: Elongated Armstrong, Fight-Man, Human Wreck, Riot Grrl, Super Mummy

Purpose: To defend Delta City from evildoers (and probably also Fight-Man)

Affiliations: Unrevealed

Enemies: Fight Man

Base of Operations: Delta City

First Appearance: Fight Man#1 (June, 1993)

History: (Fight Man#1 (fb)/All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Fight-Man) - The Fight-Brigade was a team of heroes assembled (via classified ad) to assist Fight-Man in his crusade against evil.  Due to Fight-Man's carelessness and stupidity, their infighting threatened to destroy Delta City several times; thus, after six months of action, they broke up and drifted apart.

(Fight-Man#1) - With a contract out on his life placed by the Hooded Eye, Fight-Man contacted his old comrades from the Fight-Brigade for assistance.  None of them would help.

Comments: Created by Evan Dorkin & Pam Eklund.

Elongated Armstrong is presumably a play on stretchable '70s action figure Stretch Armstrong.

"Riot grrl" was a '90s feminist...punk...movement...thing.  Check Wikipedia, kids.

Riot Grrl's real name was revealed in Civil War: Battle Damage Report, via background information provided by Evan Dorkin.  The real names and backgrounds of the rest of the Fight-Brigade were revealed in volume 4 of the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe hardcovers.
