Led by the Wrecker (Dirk Garthwaite), the Wrecking Crew comprises Thunderball (Dr. Eliot Franklin), Piledriver (Brian Calusky), and Bulldozer (Henry Camp). The supervillain team has continually been a standby for evil armies and packed prison scenes, but there is more depth to this group than meets the eye.
As perennial villains-of-the-week, the Wrecking Crew have made excellent fodder for various Marvel property adaptations. The Wrecking Crew has appeared in Marvel's Ultimate imprint as well as the Kurt Busiek/George Peréz JLA/Avengers, where Wonder Woman defeated them in one panel.
The Wrecking Crew has also appeared in various animated adaptations, featured as enemies in The Superhero Squad Show, Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, among others. The group has also appeared in video games, like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and Avengers Alliance. In the realm of live TV, they serve as antagonists in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law.
