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 the hospital, Brad tells Lucas that he can’t marry him. He swears he loves him, so Lucas asks why he doesn’t want to get married. Brad says he wants to, but he can’t. Lucas asks if this is about his parents. Brad says not directly, and he confesses that he’s already married. Lucas is stunned, and demands Brad tell him everything he’s been keeping from him. Before Brad can tell him anything, Lucas is called to the ER as emergency victims are being brought in.
At the hospital, Lucas has no answers for Carly about Joss’ kidney donor, but feels Brad may be of help. He notices the ring on Carly’s finger and she tells him the news. He’s happy for her, and as they talk about wedding plans, Lucas opens up about his fear that Brad is holding something back from him. Carly thinks it is just his cold feet talking. Carly has to go and leaves. In the hallway, big Jake runs into Sam, who assumes he’s here because of Hayden. He has no idea what she’s talking about, so she fills him in on Hayden’s condition seeming to improve, but remaining unchanged. Jake explains that he’s here with Carly about Joss’ kidney. He tells her that it turns out little Jake was never dead. Just then Liz walks in with her son. Sam introduces herself to the boy, who says hi and then runs straight to show big Jake a toy he just got. Sam wants the boy to meet Danny, as she doesn’t want them to miss anymore time together. Suddenly Carly arrives and sees the boy. She introduces herself with tears in her eyes, and the boy wonders why everyone cries when they see him. She tells him that they are just happy he is home. Liz and the two Jakes then leave to go find out the boy’s blood-work results. Felix and Brad have a run-in in the hospital locker room. Felix sees something is bothering Brad, so Brad reveals his secret, which the viewers don’t hear. Felix is stunned and agrees that Brad is in a huge mess. He suggests Brad tell Lucas the truth about this. Brad can’t, so he feels the only thing he can do is to call off the wedding. Later, Brad goes to see Lucas and asks that they talk. Lucas thinks he wants to finally talk about the wedding plans, but Brad shocks him and tells him that he can’t marry him.
