(Squadron Supreme I#8 (fb) - BTS) - The past of Bollix is largely unrevealed, but he was an enemy of the Whizzer, and was one of the speedster's earliest foes in his crime-fighting career.

(Squadron Supreme I#8) - After the Squadron Supreme had instituted a new world order of behavior-modifying criminals and removing weapons, Bollix joined with another foe of the Whizzer-- the Rustler--in stealing a pair of the force field belts the Squadron had provided to the populace for protection.

   The pair robbed a bank and made off with the money, only to encounter the Whizzer. Once the Whizzer realized they were using force field belts, he simply dribbled them from outside the force field, all the way to the local police station.

   Bollix and the Rustler were placed into a cell together, still wearing their force fields. They gloated that no one could touch them, so they were immune to the Squadron's behavior-modifying; but the Whizzer observed that the force belts had only 96 hours of power, and that the two villains would have to turn them off long before then in order to get food; the Whizzer then left them with the police.

Comments: Created by Mark Gruenwald, Bob Hall and Sam De La Rosa.

Since "bollix" is a synonym for "fumble"...
   ...and since "fumble" is a term used in the game of football...
   ...and since his costume is slightly reminiscent to a football player's...
  ...then maybe Bollix is a former football player (or the Earth-712 equivalent thereof) who uses a sports motif to commit his crimes (much like the old DC Comics character the Sportsmaster).
