(Death's Head I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Backbreaker made a reputation for himself as one of the biggest and meanest robotic criminals on the scum planet Scarvix.

(Death's Head I#1 (fb) ) - Backbreaker went on a rampage on Scarvix, just as Death's Head arrived on the planet to start his bounty hunter / freelance peacekeeping business. Figuring taking out a feared criminal would be great way to make a name for himself, he hired his services to Backbreaker's creators. When Backbreaker encountered Death's Head, the bounty hunter hit him in the head with an acid filled bullet. Unaware of this, Backbreaker engaged in a very public battle against Death's Head who kept the robot busy until the acid melted and destroyed Backbreaker's control circuits.

Death's Head remembered this adventure when his body was fixed by Spratt, ordering his thoughts.
