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.

Lucas brings Brad a smoothie at the hospital and they discuss the lab tests. His family is anxious to know if Denise is Ava or not. For Kiki's sake, he hopes she is. He wants them to set a wedding date. Brad thought they'd just go to City Hall. That's not romantic enough for Lucas. His fiance isn't looking for an elaborate event. Besides, his family may have issues with all of this. He's reluctant to explain more. The lab texts him about the DNA test being ready.
At the ball, Brad proposes to Lucas in front of everyone, and Lucas accepts. Julian welcomes Brad to the family. Lucy runs over to congratulate them as well, but also to let Lucas know the Magic Milo act is up next. The group performs a striptease to INXS’ "New Sensation." Meanwhile, outside the ballroom Jake is upset at Carly for what she did to Liz and wishes she could have done things a little differently. However he thanks her for exposing Ric and Hayden. He realizes he can be with Liz now, but Carly thinks he still may have a life and family out there. Jake says he’ll deal with the fallout if and when he remembers, but right now he wants to be happy with Liz. He says it would be nice if she had his back, and she tells him of course he does. In a dressing room, Nikolas tells Liz that Jake is actually Jason. She believes he’s lying, so he tells her the entire story about Helena holding him at Crichton Clark, and Jason being hit by a car the night of the explosion. Liz realizes this is why she and Jake had such an instant connection, and why Jason chose the name Jake. She asks when he found out, and when he tells her she is furious that he learned months ago. She demands an explanation, so he tells her all about his scheme to takeover ELQ and how Jason’s return would have ruined it. Liz slaps Nikolas. She can’t believe he has done this as Jason was nothing but nice to him. Nikolas knows this, but says he is reclaiming his life after being jerked around these past two years, and he thinks Jason and the people who loved him are all better off this way. He points out that Jason was always torn between his family and the mob, and Sam has finally moved on with her life. Liz plans to tell Jason the truth, and he says he won’t stop her. Backstage Emma comforts Cameron, who feels bad for his mother. Spencer arrives dressed in a cape and looking like the Phantom of the Opera. He stops them from going to the stage to perform and wants Emma to be with him. He feels she’s not because of his face. She tells Spencer that his face has nothing to do with it, and it has to do with the way he treats her like a prize. Emma pushes past Spencer in order to get to the stage. The Haunted Starlets perform the next number and dance to Meghan Trainor’s "Dear Future Husband." Afterwards Cam and Emma dance the tango. During their performance Spencer drops sandbags from the catwalk above the stage, causing the audience to gasp. Spencer’s image appears on the big screen proclaiming to be the Phantom of the Nurses’ Ball and that he has decided to be the monster they all believe he is. After some smoke bombs he appears on stage and tells them all to beware the mysterious pox he is about to unleash upon the ball. Lulu grabs Spencer and drags him off to find his father. Backstage, Lucy tells Duke that it’s clear he still loves Anna, so he should go fight for her. Duke thinks there is no point. As they argue, Lucy changes her outfit, only to have the curtains drawn on them. Everyone gasps at Lucy in her underwear. Sloane asks Anna if this is normal, and she says yes. Lucy uses the situation to introduce Duke as their next performer and says he’ll be dancing the tango with his special guest Anna. Lucy runs off and leaves Duke and Anna to tango.
