Brother Eye was the brainchild of Professor Myron Forest, a scientist working for the Global Peace Agency. The GPA selected Forest to head up a top-secret operation known as "Project: O.M.A.C.". Forest's scientific expertise enabled him to transform weakling military officer, Buddy Blank, into the one-man army corps known as O.M.A.C.
To aid O.M.A.C. in his missions, Professor Forest created the Brother Eye computer system, which he housed within an orbiting satellite. The computer remotely interfaced with O.M.A.C.'s body granting him various super-human capabilities. Brother Eye could download information directly into O.M.A.C.'s brain and provide a wide array of shielding effects on his form depending upon the specific situation. It could make O.M.A.C. impervious to gunfire and extreme temperatures, and could even generate a protective cocoon around Buddy’s body. It could also alter O.M.A.C.'s density allowing him to effectively operate within environments with an unstable gravity.
On one adventure, O.M.A.C. faced up against a villain known as Doctor Skuba. Skuba managed to reverse Professor Forest’s work and transformed O.M.A.C. back into the human, Buddy Blank. Brother Eye labored to reverse the condition, but with great cost to itself. Doctor Skuba repolarized Brother Eye's computer systems, rendering extensive damage throughout the satellite. Brother Eye eventually recovered, but was never again able to perform its duties to the same level of standards as before.
At some point, OMAC retired, and had a child who later had a child of their own, who would come to be Kamandi. Brother Eye, who had gone dormant at some unknown point, awoke. Detecting Buddy Blank's DNA in his grandson, Brother Eye briefly transformed Kamandi into an OMAC-like warrior. Kamandi's friends informed Brother Eye that the Great Disaster they once sought to prevent had already occurred. Feeling that he and OMAC had failed, Brother Eye chose to self-destruct.
- This version of Brother Eye, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
