I have always wanted a team-up like this to happen. Now, dear viewers, what would happen if you combine Enok’s big, proud, and strong personality with Rahan’s sensible, pragmatic, only sane man nature with Brick’s large-and-in-charge, tough guy attitude with Butch’s brute strength as the muscle? You get an international crossover of a BroT4 which is rather epic and awesome in scale thanks to these four strong, awesome dudes.
The way I see it these four studs of MMA fighters could definitely be on par with the Teenage Mutant Turtles with Enok being the proud, focused, and mighty leader of a big brother, Rahan being the brains and the only sane man of the group, Brick being the hothead who constantly gets into scuffles with big bro Enok, and Butch being the muscle who does get into scuffles with his big bros Enok, Rahan, and Brick.
In my alternate universe/headcanon, specifically for Enok and Rahan, they are brothers and sons of a strict, no-nonsense single dad, Mogo whose real name in this AU is Maurice. Moreover, they are French-Canadians from Quebec descended from an ancient Native Canadian tribe and Mogo wants to make sure that their heritage is well-preserved.
Mogo, being the big, strict, manly patriarch single dad of his house, always has to make sure that his two sons are well-disciplined, well-rounded, have excellent grades seeing that Enok graduated from Montreal’s McGill University with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in History and Political Science and Rahan also graduated from that same university but with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Philosophy and Anthropology, and physically fit, seeing that both Enok and Rahan are also professional MMA fighters, all the way through. Plus, he always has to make sure that Enok acts as the responsible older brother to Rahan. This is due to the fact that Mogo was once upon a time a bodybuilder, a weightlifter, a heavyweight champion in boxing, jiujitsu, professional wrestling, kickboxing, and Pankration, and even served in the Canadian army. Six years after Rahan’s birth, Mogo’s wife was diagnosed with leukemia but sadly lost the battle. He promised her that he will take care of the family with all of his heart, mind, and soul and to this day he lives up to this promise. Aside from being a father to his two sons, Mogo also owns his own mixed martial arts training studio where he is the main instructor and it is a family business.
Having a father like Mogo is surely something both Enok and Rahan are forever grateful for, as he is the one who trained them tirelessly, ensured a safe home, and made sure that both of them are on the right track with their lives. As Enok and Rahan came of age, every waking morning before school was spent on sparring matches with their father and with each other and after school, both Enok and Rahan would not only do their homework but also engage in evening sessions with their father before going to bed at 9 PM. Weekends with Mogo, Enok, and Rahan were spent on meditation, more combat training in mixed martial arts, jiujitsu, wrestling, kickboxing, Muay Thai, and weightlifting, walks in the forest, and male bonding in general. This tradition continued even when Enok was dating Tetya and Rahan was dating Noama to the point where both of their girlfriends and eventual wives were rather blessed to have someone as stern like Mogo to put Enok and Rahan in the right direction.
Brick and Butch came into Enok’s and Rahan’s lives when they were exchange students in Quebec back when Enok was eighteen, Rahan was seventeen, and Brick and Butch were sixteen. Mogo welcomed Brick and Butch with open arms and made sure that they were not going to be bad influences on his two sons. Initially, things were not easy with the four boys, as Enok constantly got annoyed by Brick’s abrasive temper and always insisting to do things his way and even Butch’s violent streak, Rahan was not a fan of Brick’s and Butch’s incessant bouts of anger, Brick was peeved by Enok’s bossiness and quick judgment as well as Rahan’s nagging, and Butch was also not a fan of Enok shoving it in their faces that he is the eldest and that he is in charge and Rahan constantly headlocking him to calm down. This was even a headache for Mogo, as there were times he almost lost his voice bellowing at all four of them to pipe down, with the solution that Enok, Rahan, Brick, and Butch will sleep in one room together in order for them to cooperate more and cease the fighting. Their four-way competitiveness was present in school, as Enok and Brick had heated debates in political science classes, Rahan and Butch had heated soccer matches in PE, Enok and Butch were always faced against each other in wrestling, and Rahan and Brick were constantly trying to one-up each other in History, English, and Physics. At home, Brick and Butch always managed to let out some steam by having beatdowns with Enok and Rahan monitored by Mogo, thus constantly making sure that the four of them were not trying to kill each other whilst sparring.
After some weeks, the initially heated rivalry between Enok, Rahan, Brick, and Butch subsided and they became really good friends. Enok and Rahan were also happy to know that Brick and Butch are part of a six-person superhero team known as Team Xtreme and they found it fascinating that their new friends were also Townsville’s superheroes. It all came to a head when an assault took place between a thug and a man walking to work and Enok, Rahan, Brick, and Butch banded together to stop the felon to the point where they were hailed as local heroes. The man they helped was the Canadian ambassador to Townsville and he gave Enok, Rahan, Brick, and Butch medals of honor to commend them for their deeds. Equally as astounded was Mogo, who was not only proud of his own sons but also of Brick and Butch for being such great contributors to society.
Before Brick’s and Butch’s exchange semester was over, they enlisted Enok and Rahan as honorary Team Xtreme members for their courage, strength, and overall sense of justice. They even compliment them for having a father like Mogo who has raised them excellently. All four friends of them made a promise that they will see each other again and there will be more beatdowns, more days of hanging out, and more awesome things to come along their way. Even more so, Enok and Rahan expressed that Brick and Butch were the hotheaded little brothers they wish they could have had.
As Brick and Butch came back to Townsville, they had a feeling that their experience in Quebec changed them for the better. From having a stern disciplinarian of a host father like Mogo who has done his best to make sure that everyone was at their best behavior to the school they went to which was Montgomery High for having an awesome curriculum to having new friends like Enok and Rahan, everything they experienced was precious to the both of them. This got to the point where Enok, Rahan, Brick, and Butch were Skyping with each other every chance they got and Enok and Rahan also had an exchange program going to Townsville University for a semester to be reunited with Brick and Butch. From there, there were more sparring matches and more days where all four young men were continuously comfortable with each others’ company.
Now with Enok at age 28, Rahan at age 27, and both Brick and Butch at age 26, they still manage to keep that brotherly bond and have therefore become the greatest of allies as well as Quebec’s and Townsville’s finest MMA fighters of all time.
I have to say that coming up with a backstory for these four gentlemen was easier said than done, as I was inspired by the brotherly bond Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo bear in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ryu’s and Ken’s friendly rivalry of a bromance in the Street Fighter franchise. The experience was nonetheless really enjoyable.
I hope you all enjoyed this piece of fanart as well as my post and I will see you all on the flipside. Take care and have a great evening.
