"Thaddeus Brown" was an extraordinary circus escape artist, and the first person to take up the name of "Mister Miracle." He worked with an assistant, "Oberon," and mentored the young Shilo Norman, who would later become the third person to take up the "Miracle" guise. Most notably, shortly before his own death at the hands of an Intergang operative, Brown also mentored New God "Scott Free." Scott Free was inspired to take up Brown's stage name to avenge his death, and became the very first crimefighter known as "Mister Miracle." After avenging his death, Scott Free hired Oberon and took up Brown's business to carry on his name.


  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
