Captain America #121 (1970)
It was a promise he kept until the thought of his son living in foster care, thinking his father was a rat for beating up on Captain America, was something he could no longer tolerate. Calling himself Blockbuster, he decided to rob banks to get the money he needed to get his son back. It was a decision that led him into conflict with Omega. The two battled furiously until Omega learned of Blockbuster’s plight. Relating to his enemy's situation, Omega let Blockbuster escape. It wasn’t long before he crossed paths with Omega again only this time a reward was offered for Blockbuster’s capture. Omega couldn't pass up the chance as he was now in need of money to take care of one he thought of as a son, James-Michael Starling. He resorted to underhanded tactics to wear Omega down including threatening the life of Omega's one true friend, Gramps. Blockbuster had Omega by the throat and threatened to snap his neck, but he was disintegrated by Foolkiller before he could carry out the threat.
