Detect is a fictional character, a comic book superhero that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, he first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #153 (cover-dated Aug. 2014). Lee and Ditko conceived the character as a police detective with extroadinary fighting abilities and scientific knowledge. Detect has the ability to foresee attacks before they occur.

Brad Browning first became the hero during one of his investigations. Brad knew that the crimelord Mario Hendez would be looking for him since he locked his son up. After dealing with Mario, Brad realized he could put his close friends and family in danger so he creatures a disguise that is engineered to give his body diamond strength and flexibility.

Detect develops superhuman abilities against William Hendez (Awakener), the son of Mario Hendez, during his escape from prison. The chemical compound that created Brad's suit caused a reaction to the newly gained powers that The Awakener obtained causing Brad's body to change and collaborate with his suit causing his skin to be as hard as diamonds and reflexes and strength increased dramatically.

His appearance varies, at the start of the comics, Detect wears a trench coat, black and white coloured mask, a formal suit and a hat. When he becomes a crimefighter he gains his signature outfit which consists of the black and white coloured mask, the trench coat and the chemically compounded superhuman black and white suit modified to enhance all abilities.
