He is an expert martial artist and was a low-level telepath who could read the thoughts somebody just thought.
Brass is the son of Yuji Watanabe, the karate tutor of Ghost Rider's alter ego, Dan Ketch. An expert martial artist, Sean was trained by his father as soon as he could walk as a child. Sean then joined the Navy and trained as a commando operative in the United States Navy SEALs which is where he earned the nickname "Brass".
After leaving the Navy, Sean met a girl named Theresa and fell in love, but she was accidentally killed by a car attempting to escape an attack by the Mandarin on the Avengers. Sean learned that the Mandarin had been working with other villains as part of the "Acts of Vengeance", and swore revenge on all the villains that had taken part.
He began by hitting the Mandarin's operations in Chinatown, and ended up aiding Wolverine and Ghost Rider in rescuing his father's other pupil, Jack D'auria, from Deathwatch and his ninja forces. Brass lost his mutant powers after the M-Day (power loss confirmed in New Avengers #18).
Sean is being considered as a "potential recruit" for the Initiative program, according to Civil War: Battle Damage Report.
