Dick Hertz' career as a super-criminal proved less than acceptable to his new masters, particularly when he first clashed with Booster Gold. The 1000 planned to execute Blackguard along with Booster Gold, but Blackguard and Booster Gold escaped death and took on the forces of The 1000.

Blackguard was later recruited into the Suicide Squad. He and the Squad participated in a mission to assassinate Haake-Bruton's board of directors. During the attack, Blackguard was brutally murdered by Wade Eiling via decapitation.[1]
