2010-10-22 13:42:21 scottandrewhutchins Bio Garrett Sanford believed that he was the Sandman of legend. In reality, he was under the influence of two minor nightmares, Brute and Glob, who allowed him to believe that he was keeping them imprisoned when not needed. He developed an experimental system to enter people's preconscious minds, and he used this ability to save an important man, implied to be a U.S> president, but ultimately became trapped in the Dream Stream, a pocket dimension of the Dreaming, able to leave it for only an hour at a time. The Dream Stream centered on Jed Walker, although Sanford was able to reach into enough other people's dreams that he was able to believe himself the true Sandman. He invaded Wonder Woman's most private dreams, but was honest enough to admit it to her. He had become lonely in the Dream Stream, and wanted her to be his queen. She refused him, and he accepted her as strictly a friend an ally. With the Justice League, he fought Dr. John Dee (Dr. Destiny), and they made him an honorary member after offering a full membership he had to decline because of his restricted travel in the waking world. Eventually, he succombed to the loneliness of the Dream Stream and committed suicide, so Brute and Glob sought a replacement, which they found in Hector Hall, whose body had recently been claimed by the Silver Scarab, whose power he had been using. The two nightmares put Hall's essence into Sanford's body, and it grew to resemble Hall's old appearance. Eventually, when Dream revealed the truth to Hector Hall, Sanford's body disintegrated and sent Hall's spirit into the next world. Dr. Garrett Sanford believed that he was the Sandman of legend.

2010-10-22 13:36:38 scottandrewhutchins Powers As the Sandman, Sanford was able to observe the dreams of thousands of people using a system of monitors. With a whistle, he could summon two nightmares named Brute and Glob. From his computer system, he could jump into either the "Dream Stream" or the "Reality Stream," but he could be in the latter for only an hour. When in the Reality Stream, he carried a pouch of magic sand that would automatically induce sleeping if he threw it in someone's face.
