"Nuclear Dad" (died 2018) was the patriarch of a brainwashed "family" that used drugs to enhance their physical capabilities.


Reading the newspaper one day, "Nuclear Dad" answered the front door to find a man with a photo, telling him that he was activated, telling him to pursue a specific girl. Travelling interstate from St. Louis to Detroit, his "family" found Detective Amy Rohrbach, the partner of Dick Grayson, who had been protecting the girl in question. They beat up Rohrbach, before finding both Grayson and Rachel in Washington, D.C. They entered a fight, ultimately badly injuring Dawn Granger and taking Rachel with them.[1] They headed to Coolville, Ohio, but after stopping at a gas station, "Nuclear Dad" was killed by Kory Anders.[2]
