Bill Brooks was the designer of the Materioptikon.


Dr. Brooks created the Materioptikon, a machine that could temporarily give a test subject extrasensory perception. For test subjects, he went to Stryker's Island Penitentiary. His most eager subject was John Dee.

Brooks was working late in his office when a prison riot broke out. Dee came to his office to make sure he was right, but when Brooks went to lock up the door, Dee hit him in the head with a statuette. Dee then activated the Materioptikon to an unusually high level. Guards found both Brooks and Dee unconscious when the riot had calmed down.
