Brandon Breyer is an extraterrestrial male from an unknown planet who serves as a supervillain and the titular main protagonist/main villain of the 2019 film Brightburn. He originally came to Earth from outer space and landed outside of Brightburn, Kansas, where he was discovered by Tori and Kyle Breyer. The couple longed for a child, but were unable to conceive on their own, so they took the infant, named him "Brandon," and raised him as their own.
However, upon the onset of puberty, Brandon develops superhuman powers and quickly devolves into a psychopathic murderer. He then adopts the alter-ego of Brightburn, dons a red costume, and begins to terrorize his adoptive hometown, much to the dismay of his adoptive mother.
