Dr. Brakish Okun first appeared in 1996 in the film Independence Day where he was isolated due to the nature of his work at Area 51. After the war with aliens, he was in a coma for 20 years, reappearing in Independence Day Resurgence. He wakes, screaming to his caregiver placing this cowl around his neck … not because its “itchy” – it’s something much worse - the aliens are back …
