Blackout was part of a clandestine team of American heroes by Cyborg.
This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.
This team's mission is to take down both Emperor Aquaman and Wonder Woman and stop the Amazon and the Atlantean war which had devastated Europe. Aquaman and Wonder Woman were attempting to take over the world, and the war between their nations resulted in millions of human casualties. The team which Blackout was recruited to aimed to end that war.
During a meeting with Batman, the Outsider revealed that he had been hunting Blackout, because he wanted to use Blackout's electric powers to light India. This hunt resulted in the loss of Blackout's girlfriend and his departure from his school. The Outsider was also recruited into Cyborg's team. Blackout voiced his reluctance working in a team with his worst enemy.
