Brand was a Gotham City criminal, costumed as a masked western bandit. He started a criminal spree, leaving clues in brands to his forthcoming crimes and challenging Batman and Robin to stop him. The first two brand clues were solved by Batman and the crimes were prevented, but during the third clue, Batman realized that this crime was a distraction for a real crime. Brand had planned to keep the Dynamic Duo busy, while he stole a hundred thousand dollars from the bank, which was donated by Batman. Brand's crimes were ruses to delay Batman until he could tunnel into the vault, but the heroes eventually deduced his plan and captured him. Afterwards, Brand was sent to prison.
