Two brothers took the alias of Blockbuster in turn. The first, Mark Desmond, was a chemist who experimented on himself and gained super strength, but also became a mindless brute. He would eventually die fighting Brimstone, a minion of Darkseid. Mark's older brother, Roland Desmond, was mutated when he was treated with experimental steroids, also gaining massive strength.
The New BlockbusterEdit
Little is revealed about this Blockbuster, save for the fact that Luthor possesses some measure of control of his actions and level of strength. Luthor also comments that he is stronger than either of the two previous Blockbusters. This brute's cognitive abilities and appearance are very similar to the original. Blockbuster, with controlled interference from Lex Luthor, kills the superhero Trajectory.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
All Blockbusters have super human strength, agility and endurance. They have a high degree of resistance to physical and energy attacks.
After selling his soul to Neron, Roland Desmond gained super intelligence.
