Blockbuster is a legacy of super-villains with incredible strength and extremely low intelligence. Mark Desmond was the original, a chemist whose experiments went horribly wrong. Following his death during Legends, he was succeeded by his brother Roland Desmond. Developing super-intelligence through a deal with Neron during Underworld Unleashed, Roland terrorized Blüdhaven as leader of the Blockbuster Gang and fought Nightwing until he was murdered by Tarantula. The character has been involved with the Secret Society of Super-Villains and the Suicide Squad.

Blockbuster was created by Gardner Fox and Carmine Infantino, first appearing in Detective Comics #345 (1965).
