Brute and Glob are nightmares created by Morpheus.

History[]

Following Dream's disappearance, and the decay of the Dreaming, Brute and Glob decided to become the powers behind the throne, and set up their own version of Sandman. They took over Jed Walker's dreams, and manipulated a scientist named Garrett Sanford in the hope of having a Sandman under their control. They confined themselves to the Dream Stream, a small corner of the Dreaming that the duo cut off from the rest of the realm. The Dream Stream was inside the mind of a boy named Jed Walker.[1] Garrett, however, suffered a mental break and killed himself. So, they took the dead man, Hector Hall, and made him into a superhero they called Sandman. Hector brought his still-living wife, Lyta Hall, into the dream stream pocket of the Dreaming to live with him.

When Morpheus found them during the incidents of The Doll's House, he banished them to "the darkness" for their insolence and sent Hector Hall to the afterlife.[2]

Brute and Glob later appeared as minor villains in the spinoff series, Lucifer and JSA. In their JSA appearance, they reveal what 'the darkness' was: the pleasing dreams of children.

Continuity Notes[]

  • Like many of the characters in The Doll's House, Brute and Glob are based on the characters from the 1974–1976 DC Comics series The Sandman during its Earth-One publication era. Their sidekick roles in the original comics were revealed to be a ruse in the series and attempts to create a version of Morpheus they could control.
  • In the Netflix adaptation, Brute and Glob's roles were filled by a new character, Gault.
