|“||I've studied you, Brandon Frangipani. I know everything. Who you love, who you trust, who you've hurt. Do you know how easy it was to turn Oliver against you? Imagine how it will be easy to turn them all. You're not a hero. You're a killer. And I'm going to make sure everything you touch dies.||”|
— Zekiel to Brandon
Zekiel (real name Thaddeus Krane and formerly known as John Musker) is the son of the late Victor Krane and the late Giselle Vickers. He will serve as the primary antagonist of the series, as well as the main antagonist of Disney's Super Squad.
He is portrayed by Dylan Stout, while Michael Dorn provides the voice work.
Thaddeus is the biological son of the late Victor Krane and the late Giselle Vickers. Born on December 1, 1995, Thaddeus had gone under tons of experiments since he was born, changing not only his physical appearance, but his mental abilties.
Thaddeus had then gained mind control abilities at the age of 3, possessing his father after the end of the first Bionic War. At the age of 10, he had gained regenerative abilities so that he could live on for years without dying.
Thaddeus had also known about the existence of Adam, Bree, and Chase Davenport before Donald had kicked Douglas out of Davenport Industries. Not only was Douglas a bad child during his childhood (as he stole 20 dollars from his father), but was also unknowingly under Thaddeus' mind control. Thaddeus had spied on the Davenport family for years, breaking into the Lab's security cameras and spying on the bionic children.
Thaddeus had also known about the superhero world and the existence of Horace Diaz/Cadueceo, before Horace would perish before Zekiel many years later. Unbeknownst to Skylar Storm, Thaddeus had met the Annihilatior in 2013 before Kaz and Oliver discovered Mighty Med. Thaddeus had ordered him to steal Skylar's powers in order for her to gain Kaz and Oliver's trust. It is implied that Thaddeus was also the main person responsible for the shape shifters destroying Mighty Med hospital in February of 2016, however, neither Zekiel nor the Elite Force had confirmed this suspicion.
Unbeknownst to Zekiel, however, a younger Brandon Frangipani was working as a Normo intern at Mighty Med hospital, and had learned Thaddeus' secret alter ego. Brandon was believed to have perished after the destruction of Mighty Med, however, a 22-year-old Brandon would be found at a bar in Rome, Italy, with a different appearance. Zekiel would not know of this until Brandon's return to Centium City.
