(Daredevil I#228 (fb) - BTS) - Thug Don "the Bomb" Meyers was hired by the Kingpin to blow up Matt Murdock's brownstone apartment. Matt Murdock had the secret identity of Daredevil.

(Daredevil II#72 (fb) - BTS) - Don, who was abusive to his son Archie, designed a bomb that Daredevil wouldn't be able to detect. He utilized the services of Gregor to help carry it out.

(Daredevil I#228 - BTS) - The bomb successfully went off, demolishing the building.

(Daredevil II#72 (fb) - BTS) - Though Don developed fame from the act, he was eventually arrested and put in prison, thanks to Daredevil. He found himself low on the power food chain and sought to kill Murdock's law partner, Foggy Nelson, an act that would raise his status in the penitentiary. He contacted Gregor to build another bomb, then got his brother Ray to agree to plant the bomb. Meanwhile, Archie had married and had a son.

(Daredevil II#72 (fb)) - When visiting day arrived and Archie arrived to see Don instead, Don was furious. Don explained the planned hit and Archie agreed to carry it out. Though reluctant, Don told Archie how to find Gregor, an old ally of his, and threatened Archie if anything went wrong. Archie later betrayed Don and blew up Gregor instead of Nelson.
