Useful information on Brad Cooper
* Aided Dr. Britt Westbourne with her pregnancy scam in exchange for a promotion as lab manager.
Current: General Hospital lab manager
Past: General Hospital lab tech
General Hospital lab technician Brad Cooper was promoted to lab manager in May 2013 by Dr. Britt Westbourne over his colleague Ellie Trout. Because Ellie was so much more qualified than Brad, she, her boyfriend Damian Spinelli, and her coworkers Elizabeth Webber, Sabrina Santiago, and Felix DuBois were suspicious that Brad had done something nefarious for Britt in order to gain the promotion.
In fact, Brad had helped Britt make everyone believe she was having a complication in her pregnancy in a bid to get Dr. Patrick Drake to invite her to live with him. Britt was perpetuating a lie that Dr. Patrick Drake was the father of her baby.
Meanwhile, Brad actively pursued coworker Felix DuBois, who was repelled by his aggressive tactics and association with Britt. Brad also came on strong with Michael Corinthos III, and even tried to blackmail him into having sex when he found out Michael had feelings for Kiki Jerome. At the time, Kiki was married to Michael's brother Morgan Corinthos and was thought to be Michael's biological cousin.
Eventually Brad and Felix got closer, but that ended when Britt gave birth and told everyone Brad was the father. When Brad had no interest being in the child’s life, Felix was put off. To gain his respect back, Brad went to the christening of baby Connie Falconeri and revealed to everyone that the baby’s parents were not Dante and Lulu Falconeri, but Maxie Jones and Damian Spinelli.
Eventually Felix began to come around again, but Brad’s affiliation with Britt continued to be an issue. On Halloween 2013, Brad told Felix he wasn’t the baby’s father after all. Just when Brad thought he had no chance with Felix, he met Lucas Jones at the Floating Rib. Over drinks, they commiserated about their similar upbringings as both were adopted, but biologically each was from notorious mob families. Brad’s biological father was Kim Wu, who was taken down in the 1980s by Robert Scorpio.
Lucas and Felix had a one-night stand, but the next day Felix asked Brad out on a date and he agreed. Brad told Lucas that things could not go any further with him and he went on a nice, sex-free date with Felix. When Felix cancelled his second date with Brad in order to help his friend Sabrina, Brad grabbed a drink with Lucas instead and they had sex again.

At General Hospital, Brad surprises Lucas in a cubicle by pretending to be a patient. Lucas says he has real patients to see and work to do, but finds himself tempted by Brad. The two kiss, but are interrupted by a nurse as Lucas has an actual patient to attend to. Later, Maxie and Spinelli arrive and learn from Felicia that Georgie was running a high fever, so she brought her in. They go in to check on Georgie and Lucas tells them that she has the flu and he wants to keep her overnight to be safe. He tells them that he’ll have a cot brought in so they can stay with her. He leaves them and then out in the hall Brad tells Lucas he’s not only that baby’s hero, but he’s his as well. The two kiss. Meanwhile, Nathan arrives upon hearing about Georgie and finds Maxie and Spinelli sitting in the cubicle with their baby girl and looking very close.
Brad runs into Patrick in the hospital locker room. They discuss their plans for the night. After Drake swans out, Dr. Derick pops up in a towel and Brad walks into his pecs. He gives Brad a pat on the posterior and strolls out. Sam and Lucas visit Julian in his hospital room. He thinks they should be with their partners on Valentine's Day. Lucas tells them about Brad's big declaration. She spots Patrick and runs over to him. He explains that Obrecht has put him on call. Derick rears his head and offers to give Sam a ride and keep her company until his date shows up. She's down with that. Meanwhile, Brad complains to Felix about Lucas giving him no response. This conversation is making Felix uncomfortable. Back down the hall, Lucas tells his father he's terrified of committing to Brad and making big gestures. Fear sounds like love to his father and urges hum to put his heart on the line. Lucas heads down the hall and finds Brad. He admits he sucks at big gestures, but he's fallen in love with him. He climbs up on the desk and announces that he's madly and hopelessly in love with Brad. Living with him would make him happy. They kiss. Everyone claps.
