--Confessor (Brian Kinney)[src]

Coming to Astro City as a young man, Brian Kinney came to start a new life in the big, heroic city. Early in his time there he was spotted by the Confessor (Jeremiah Parrish) and asked to become his apprentice. Taking up the mantle of Altar Boy, he learned about the city from the inside out. Discovering Confessor's secret, Altar Boy was with Confessor when he revealed that aliens were trying take over the world. In the ensuing battle Confessor was killed and Altar Boy decided to take up his mantle and continue his crusade for justice.


The history of Confessor (Brian Kinney) is not currently documented. You can help the Astro City Wiki by adding it in.
