Roland Desmond became the second Blockbuster after a short prison stay in Outdiders # 9, Roland would be a cesspool south of Gotham named Blüdhaven, home of Mark and Roland's elderly (but devious) mother.
Along the way, Blockbuster has also had run-ins with Young Justice and Encantadora.
His first priority, however, was still completing the hunt for Oracle. Oracle, who'd been following Roland's every move ever since his rampage halted by Batman and Starman, responded by bankrolling her own operations with funds electronically stolen from his own cache in Birds Of Prey # 3. The hunt failed, and Blockbuster eventually turned his attention to a thorn that had become larger in his side, Nightwing.
Desmond's primary goal became the elimination of the young vigilante. He placed a contract on Nightwing's life, employing the services of several assassins, including Lady Vic, Stallion, Brutale, the Trigger Twins, and Shrike.
