Herbert Powell

Herb & Homer meet for the first time

Herbert "Herb" Powell, voiced by Danny DeVito, is Homer's half-brother. He resembles Homer, though a lot slimmer and boasting a full head of hair. His first appearance was in "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?", in which Homer discovered he had a previously unknown half-brother (as his mother Mona insisted on concealing his existence). The product of a short-lived affair between Homer's father, Abraham Simpson, and a carnival prostitute, Herb was adopted by Edward Powell and Mililani Osler. He put himself through college by working odd jobs, then founded Powell Motors, a car company based in Detroit. Herb was overjoyed to learn that he had a birth family and bonded with his nieces and nephew, and - in his role as CEO - allowed Homer to design a car. However, the miserable failure of Homer's car bankrupted the company, and Herb became a street vagrant. Screencap from Simpsons episode Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

He re-appeared in the episode "Brother Can You Spare Two Dimes?", and briefly settled in the Simpson household, despite his intense continuing antipathy toward Homer. Homer loaned Herb $2000 (from the power plant, as compensation for making him sterile from radiation), which Herb used to build a invention that translated infantile speech into comprehensible English, based on observations he made of Maggie Simpson. He proceeded to mass-produce his new product and regained his fortune. He then proceeded to buy each member of the family gifts and payed Homer back the $2000 he had loaned him earlier.

Herb does not seem to be as affected by the so-called "Simpson gene" (a Y-chromosome defect that reduces the intelligence of male members of the family, described in Lisa the Simpson), as badly as Homer, but he has still his moments of stupidity. Several scenes in which Herb chews out his executives and engineers show that Powell Motors was in serious trouble long before Homer came along, and Herb insisted on forging ahead with production of "The Homer" despite his staff's warnings, committing what Forbes Magazine called "the blunder of the century." However, as Homer has what is generally considered to be slightly above average intelligence when not suffering from constant, acute brain trauma caused by an invasive crayon, it seems that Homer is also less affected by the chromosome.) However, Homer's son Bart has shown early signs of the "Simpson Gene". (However it is worth noting that if Bart does indeed have the "Simpson Gene", it appears to be a very mild case, as Bart has been shown to be very successful in at least two possible alternate futures which appear to be linked together- one in which he is a construction worker, and the other in which he is chief justice of the supreme court of the United States. Bart also displays moments of brilliance and even some of his most destructive pranks and plans have been known to be exceedingly intelligent and elaborate, something the "Simpson Gene" should render almost impossible.)

Abbie

Homer with Abbie.

"Abbie" Abigail is Homer Simpson's English half-sister from "The Regina Monologues". She looks like a female version of Homer (or Homer in drag) and although the two act similarly she is ½- British. While she is obviously a biological Simpson (aside from her appearance and personality, she was born only about a year after Grampa's affair with her mother) she is not officially recognized by the family and never explicitly called a Simpson; the audience is merely left with a strong indication.
