"Is that all you've got? A cheap trick and a cheesy one-liner?"
"Sweetheart, that could be the name of my autobiography!"
―Ellen Brandt and Tony Stark[src]

Ellen Brandt was an agent of A.I.M. and an enemy of Iron Man who had been injected with the Extremis virus, making her a highly dangerous warrior. She was killed by Stark while attempting to capture him.


Early Life

Ellen Brandt was an amputee, who lost her lower left arm while fighting in the United States Armed Forces.[1]

Working for A.I.M.

"Will you please state your name for the camera?"
"Ellen Brandt."
Aldrich Killian and Ellen Brandt[src]

Brandt is recruited by A.I.M.

Barndt was approached by Aldrich Killian to act as a test subject for the experimental Extremis virus. She endured the pain of the infusion long enough for her body to accept the compound, and watched it regrow her missing limb. A fellow trial subject was not so lucky, and exploded in her vicinity, yet Brandt was able to recover and subsequently entered into the service of Killian.[1]

Battle of Rose Hill

"You walked right into this one. I've dated hotter chicks than you."
Tony Stark[src]

One of Brandt's assignments was to recover a set of documents from a Rose Hill bar, documents that detailed the death of another Extremis subject, Chad Davis, in that area. When she arrived, she found that Tony Stark had arrived and had inadvertently collected them already. Brandt, posing as Homeland Security, and Eric Savin attempted to apprehend Stark, but ultimately failed.


Brandt is killed

Even without his armor, Stark was able to outsmart the Extremis-empowered agents as he placed metal dog tags from Chad Davis's file in a microwave, luring Brandt near it and pulling a gas line that was ignited by Brandt's own power and the exploding microwave. Brandt was killed in the explosion as her lifeless body flew into nearby power cables.[1]

Powers and Abilities


Thanks to Extremis, Brandt temporarily displayed various superhuman abilities, such as strength, agility, an enhanced healing factor, and the ability to generate intense heat.

  • Superhuman Strength: Extremis enhanced Brandt's muscles to the point of being able to toss Tony Stark around with ease.
  • Enhanced Agility: Extremis enhanced Brandt's speed and agility to the point where she was able to quickly disarm a man.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Due to the effects of Extremis, Brandt managed to regrow her missing limb and withstand many other injuries that would have killed an ordinary human being.
  • Exothermic Manipulation: Hosts of the Extremis virus are able to consciously raise the temperature of parts of their bodies. The effect can be controlled to the extent that it might only scorch skin, or increased to the point where it can cause steel to turn into a molten state. Brandt used it to super heat a metal law enforcement badge and used it to burn the face of a sheriff that got in her way of taking Stark.
