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.

Felix is doing his rounds at the hospital and chatting to Sabrina on the phone. Brad interrupts to nag him about ruining things with Lucas. Felix gets off the phone and they argue about what happened. They both think that Lucas had decided to be with them. Felix doubts Brad could actually be in a sustainable relationship. Brad doubts he even wants Lucas. "Maybe I do," says Felix. That doesn't go over well. They decide Lucas is a lost cause and decide to go drinking.
Maxie walks into The Floating Rib and demands to know if Mac or Dante called Immigration on Levi. The men deny doing anything. They debate the merits of Dunkleman. Maxie continues accusing them. Levi and Nathan arrive. Maxie accuses him. Nathan apologizes for dragging them all into this. Levi wants to check his phone. He hands it over and Maxie finds an 800 number. She calls it. It's Immigration. The cop is clueless and Maxie accuses him of being a liar. She declares that he won't get away with this. Meanwhile, Lucas and his father arrive. They say hi to Lulu and Liv, who gives Julian the cold shoulder. Father and son sit down across the room. Julian wants to hear about his problems, even if that includes his love life. He chokes on his beer when Lucas talks about Brad and Felix making out. He explains his romantic conundrum. Before he can explain which man he chose, Felix and Brad walk in together. Lucas is miffed.
At the hospital, Brad startles Felix while he is having a shower in the locker room. Felix covers up. "You're a hungry, hungry hippo homosexual and you're famished!" Brad accuses. He knows that "The Golden Girls" is foreplay and orders him to back away from Lucas. Felix doesn't appreciate him talking about the "Girls" like that. Brad accuses him of being frigid and then plants a kiss on him. Felix pushes him away. Lucas shows up in time to see this and storms out. Brad chases him down and claims he just got carried away. Lucas wanted to settle things and announce who he was choosing. Felix joins them. Brad bickers with him. Lucas stomps off. Down the hall, Kiki tells Morgan and Tracy that Rafe is brain dead. Tracy bluntly asks if he was an organ donor. He is. Meanwhile, Alice continues trying to tell Michael the truth but Tracy barges in to say she's found an organ ready for the taking. Tracy gloats that Alice owes her for this. She drags Michael off to make enquiries. They ask Kiki about the heart. She offers to talk to Silas about this. Across the hospital, Silas sits at Rafe's bedside vowing revenge if this is Patrick's fault. Nina shows up, claiming she's been worried about Rafe. He fills her in. She tries giving a pep talk but it's hopeless. He stares off. Nina wonders if Dr. Drake is responsible. "Justice will happen," Silas intones. She thinks he should have Sam investigate. He doubts Sam agrees with his suspicions. She can't believe Sam is siding with Drake. Kiki arrives and asks Silas into the hall. She brings up the transplant. Rafe's blood-type matches Alice's. Back in the room, Nina tells Rafe that he's helping her drive a wedge between Silas and his 'trailer trash girlfriend'. She promises he'll get a great funeral. He opens his eyes. She jumps. Elsewhere, Sam corners Patrick at the elevators and asks him if he took revenge on Rafe. They go somewhere quiet and he explains that the voice in his head called for vengeance... but he didn't listen to it. She believes him but doubts convincing Silas will be so easy. Sam says she'll help Silas see things her way. They hug.
