Powers/Abilities: Backlash was an athletic man who relied on technology in his mercenary activities, specifically rocket-powered boots that gave him nimble flight plus shoulder- and wrist-mounted guns.



(Warstrike#4 (fb) - BTS) - Backlash was hired by Kyle of Xanadu to assassinate Warstrike as a means to help Senator Kline.

(Warstrike#2) - Backlash roared in and attacked Warstrike, forcing the hero to crash his enhanced motorbike. Warstrike then used his precognitive abilities to stay ahead of the flying killer's assault and finally knocked him down. Warstrike forced Backlash to reveal the location of the kidnapped girl he was out to rescue, with Backlash telling him to meet up at Blue Moon Chemicals at 11 p.m. Backlash then rocketed out of Warstrike's grip and away.

   Warstrike made it to the rendezvous that night to find Backlash and Blind Faith together. Backlash threw Warstrike a detonator that had a countdown of 5 minutes and had tampered with so that it could not be stopped. Warstrike tossed the timer back after manually reducing it to 44 seconds. Backlash then ran off afraid that he would get caught in the impending blast.
