Explanation of the conversion: The Vulnerability to Drains, Transfers and Dispels was added because the Wrecking Crew seem to constantly be loosing and regaining their powers. The Berserk is based on an issue of Alpha Flight where Thunderball went crazy when someone tried to control him.

History: See the history of the Wrecking Crew.

Note: Brian is in no way connected with the first Piledriver, who served the Mad Thinker (Avengers #39).

Powers: Piledriver II possesses enhanced strength enabling him to lift 20 tons. He has superhuman stamina and resistance to harm. He has well developed arms and is an acomplished bare handed fighter. For a time he was granted the ability to absorb energy into his body to increase his strength by Arnim Zola.
