Robert DuBois, codenamed Bloodsport, is a contract killer who was hired to kill Superman using a kryptonite bullet, but ultimately failed to do so. As a result, he was arrested and incarcerated in Belle Reve, and subsequently became a member of the second Task Force X strike team sent to Corto Maltese.
Since he was born, Robert DuBois was trained by his father to become a hardened mercenary like himself. DuBois then used his father's training to became the paid assassin known as Bloodsport. He married and had a daughter named Tyla, but he left his wife for unknown reasons.
Arrest and Suicide
DuBois attempted to assassinate Superman with bullets forged from kryptonite, however, the most he accomplished was sending Superman to the ICU. He was incarcerated and sent to Belle Reve, and in 2021 was asked by Amanda Waller to join Task Force X on a suicide mission to Corto Maltese, the second of two strike teams sent to destroy Nazi-era laboratory and holding facility Jotunheim and wipe out the powerful and dangerous Project Starfish. When DuBois refused, a desperate Waller, knowing how dangerous the project was, threatened his daughter, forcing him to comply.

Robert DuBois takes his Task Force X membership seriously, acting as if he'd like to be finished with it and move on with his life. He's confident and tough, with flexible morality and a clear understanding of the mission's stakes, both for those close to him and the world at large. He is hardened, aggressive, and easily frustrated, but can be compassionate for his close friends and family, willing to sacrifice his freedom and possibly his life for his daughter. His love for his daughter makes him easy to persuade or blackmail into doing things he wouldn't normally do.
- "He's in prison for putting Superman in the ICU with a Kryptonite bullet."
