Mister Might's real name was 'Barb-Ell', son of 'Dumb-Ell', and he hailed from the planet Neon. After the citizens of Neon ignored his warnings of their planet's pending destruction, Dumb-Ell sent his son Barb-Ell in a rocket to Earth. Of course, Neon never exploded. Dumb-Ell, it turned out, was a complete crackpot!

Mister Might's secret identity on Earth was Mr Brent (first name unknown).

When the Freedom Brigade retired, Mister Might married his teammate, the Mermaid. The Mermaid soon gave birth to Leander Brent, later called 'Awkwardman'. Like his colleagues, after retiring, Mister Might became a teacher at Dean Egghead's Academy for Superheroes.
