North Star Heroes
Brian Calusky was a drifter and a wanderer, often drifting into crime. While in prison at Ryer’s Island, he met and befriended Dirk Garthwaite, a.k.a. the Wrecker. The Wrecker told his friends of the power he while in Mexico. They orchestrated an escape. With fellow convicts Dr. Eliot Franklin and Henry Camp, the four managed to retrieve the crowbar that housed the powers that had been drained from the Wrecker. Grasping the bar in an electrical storm, the Wrecker was restored, Franklin became Thunderball, Camp became Bulldozer, and Calusky became Piledriver. Together, they became known as the Wrecking Crew.
