Brody Mitchum is the quarterback of the Union Wells High School Wildcats football team.
At the bonfire, Brody seems perfectly charming to Claire. He can tell she hasn't been herself lately and is determined to make her laugh. However, when Claire tries to put the brakes on their physical relationship, he attempts to rape her. In the struggle, she falls and her head is impaled on a tree branch.
Brody is shocked to see Claire at school the next day, but seems relieved that she doesn't seem to remember what happened.
Claire later discovers from Lori Tremmel that she was not the first victim of Brody's predatory assaults. When Claire sees Brody coming on to a new girl, she is prompted to seek revenge by crashing Brody's car headlong into a brick wall—with Brody in it.
After Claire pulls him out of his burning car, he sees Claire healing, prompting Brody to say, "What are you?"
Brody survives the accident but is badly injured. While at the hospital Mr. Bennet confronts Brody about his attempted rape. Instead of killing Brody, Mr. Bennet has his associate erase his mind completely. When Claire tries to talk to him subsequently he claims he doesn't know who she is or why she keeps calling him Brody.
As Claire and Jackie go to check the Homecoming Queen announcement, they walk past a heavily bandaged Brody in his wheelchair. Jackie tells Claire she thinks Claire is kind of nervy to think she might be Homecoming Queen after sidelining the star quarterback and ruining any chance of Union Wells even winning the Homecoming game.

- Brody's football jersey is number 8. (Don't Look Back)
- In the timeline section of issue 11 of Heroes: The Official Magazine, they mention Brody's name, but say "Brody Mitchell" instead of Mitchum.
