BiographyEdit

Not much is known about Boston Brand's early years. Boston Brand was once a talented boxer who later became an even more talented world-renown trapeze artist who referred to himself as Deadman, due to his death-defying stunts. He later was put in charge of the circus where he performed, where his bad attitude had often inspired the ire of some of the people who worked for him. One day, during a show, Boston was shot and killed while performing on the trapeze by a mysterious assassin with a hook for a hand.

When he opened his eyes, he was shocked to see people standing over his corpse and came to the realization that he is now a ghost. In this state, he was confronted with the entity Rama Kushna, a Hindu goddess who embued Boston with the power to possess the living so that he may solve his own murder. Boston began by possessing people employed by his circus, and finds himself helping others on his path to finding his own killer.
