|For the train in GTA San Andreas, see Brown Streak.|
The character is depicted as a muscular man in a brown and yellow skin-tight superhero costume. He wears a mask covering his eyes and has a "B" logo on his chest.
The Brown Streak may be a reference to the superhero, Silver Streak and superhero films like Superman Returns and Batman Returns. On the cover of his comic book, he has a Superman-style cowlick visible on his forehead.
His name and many other things about him are an obvious innuendo to feces, with brown streak being a slang term related to diarrhea. Like the Brown Streak train, the superhero's name is an example of toilet humor from Rockstar Games.

Part 2: Enter the Clagnuts. which can also be seen in the window of the Hardcore Comic Store.
