The Brothers Grimm
are two sets of fictional
twin comic book supervillains
, owned by Marvel Comics
and existing in that company's Marvel Universe
The first appearance of the first Brothers Grimm came in Spider-Woman
#3. These were a pair of identical, magically animated mannequins created by doll collector Nathan Dolly (also known as Mister Doll
) and his wife Priscilla. During their initial appearances only one was ever seen at a time and the singular identity, Brother Grimm was used instead of their true plural name.
Fictional character biography
Mister Doll was a criminal who could mystically harm a person by harming a doll whose features he could reshape to resemble the victim's.
Later, in the process of creating the Brothers Grimm dolls, Nathan's consciousness is trapped simultaneously inside both doll mannequins. They are used by Nathan's wife Priscilla to power a pair of life size versions. She names them Jake and William (the names are a take on the Brothers Grimm
), treats them as if they are her sons, and they in turn completely believe this to be true.
Priscilla's plan is to use her occult
knowledge to transfer Nathan's mind from the mannequins to a living human body. These efforts are stopped by Spider-Woman, and Nathan's consciousness disperses.
The second Brothers Grimm appeared in Iron Man
