Bradley "Brad" Turner, codenamed Eclipse, is a member of the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand. With his Condor vehicle and "Eclipse" Mask, Brad defines the phrase "illusion is the ultimate weapon." As an infiltration specialist, Brad's primary directive is discovering the truth and manipulating people to get what he wants, something that comes easy thanks to his natural charisma. Through his work for the United States government, Brad has made numerous underground connections that can assist the M.A.S.K. team. However, his history has also led M.A.S.K. leader Matt Trakker to question where Brad's loyalties truly lie.

Do not mess with his hair.

Fiction[edit]

Brad Turner grew up as the "party kid" in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, where he trained his ability to read people and manipulate them. However, when his father was injured and his mother fell ill, Brad was forced to work to help support his family, something he resented. Thanks to his high scores on standardized tests, Brad attracted the attention of several government agencies, eventually doing work for both the FBI and the DEA. It was through this Brad made most of his connections in the criminal underworld, having to do a number of "unsavory" things in the process. His resume eventually caught the eye of General Miles Manheim. Eclipse profile M.A.S.K. #2

Manheim ended up recruiting Brad to Project Spectrum. After the recruits' first meeting with the General, Brad asked Julio Lopez what he thought Manheim meant by "washing out". Brad sparred with Matt Trakker, taking him down when Matt hesitated to finish the fight. Later, during a field test involving a train in the Canadian Rockies, Turner was forced to stop Matt from rescuing a group a civilians from the train before it exploded. The test left him demoralized, though they civilians were actually just holograms created by Manheim using Turner's own Eclipse Mask.

Turner, Trakker, Lopez, and Gloria Baker were eventually deployed to the Governor's Island base of G.I. Joe, where Manheim presented them to Scarlett as the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand! M.A.S.K.: Revolution

After their conflict with the Transformers, M.A.S.K. ended up being framed for a series of crimes, forcing them to leave their old headquarters at Project Spectrum. During their evasion from the authorities, Brad used his mask to project a cave-in on "The Dutchman's Doorway", allowing the team to escape. After regrouping in Miami, Florida at one of the many bunkers Matt's father possessed, Julio discovered a massive spike in Ore-13 energy in Barbados. Brad told them he would get transportation for their vehicle, showing up the next night with a yacht. When Julio questioned where he got it, Turner replied that some "independent pharmaceutical distributors" owed him favors, though he did not elaborate more. While investigating Harrison's Cave, the team was attacked by a blue jet and were forced to flee inside the cave. However, upon entering, Brad was shot with two harpoons from Sly Rax's Stiletto Mask, revealing that V.E.N.O.M. was there waiting for them! M.A.S.K. #1 Turner was seriously injured by the attack, leaving Julio and Gloria to pull him out of the cave while Matt distracted V.E.N.O.M. Gloria escaped with Brad in the back of her Shark, returning to the yacht while Julio and Matt engaged their opponents.

The next day, Lopez reported to Matt that Brad was stable, but that he had detected low levels of radiation in his blood matching that of the Ore-13 that powered their equipment. This radiation was present in all the M.A.S.K. agents and was slowly going to kill them all. As the team pondered what they were going to do about Miles Mayhem's new V.E.N.O.M. team, Brad said that he had some "unsavory" connections from back in his DEA days that might be tied to Mayhem's dealings on the black market.

Notes[edit]

  • While Brad's hologram-projecting Mask is called "Eclipse" in the IDW continuity, it is actually based on his 1985 counterpart's "Hocus-Pocus" Mask,[1] rather than his 1985 "Eclipse" Mask.[2]
