Affiliations: Rollerblast's associates

Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: New York, U.S.A.
First Appearance: J2#1/3 (October, 1998)
Powers/Abilities: Rollerblast was an adult male criminal who had no obvious superpowers, although he was very skilful in rollerblading using turbo-powered inline skates that could travel up to 150 mph. He was also skilled at using his pair of gauntlets to fire green energy blasts at opponents and was dressed in a protective purple body suit with metal kneepads. The origin of the rocket inline skates and gauntlets is unknown.
(J2#1/3) - Zane Yama (J2) was attending the local amusement park with Montana Gold. Rollerblast suddenly skated in and demanded money from the park's patrons. Zane transformed into J2 and knocked four of Rollerblast's so-called associates, at which point Rollerblast charged at J2, blasting him with his gauntlets, but to no effect on J2's protective skin. J2 grabbed at Rollerblast, but the criminal was too swift for the hero and easily evaded J2's lunges. Rollerblast didn't mind the interference from the new hero, as this would garner him publicity on the news and increase his reputation. However, J2 grabbed a passenger car from a nearby rollercoaster and threw it in front of the speeding villain. Unable to avoid the obstacle in time, Rollerblast hit it and flew into the air, landing near the cowering Miller Hallendale, who later took the credit for stopping the purple thief. It is presumed that Rollerblast was then arrested and charged.

Rollerblast's Associates have no known connections to:
Rollerblast's associates robbed and bullied people at the amusement park while Rollerblast shouted his demands and battled J2. Two tried to snatch money from Montana, but were punched away by J2, while another two who rolled menacingly towards J2 were swatted away. There seemed to be at least four of the thugs and they were dressed similarly to Rollerblast with purple suits and turbo rollerblades, but did not have his blast gauntlets.
