Robert DuBois, codenamed Bloodsport, is a contract killer who was hired to kill Superman with a Kryptonite bullet, a mission he was unsuccessful in. He was incarcerated in Belle Reve and became a member of the second Task Force X strike team sent to Corto Maltese.
Robert DuBois was an expert marksman who became the paid assassin known as Bloodsport. He married and had a daughter named Tyla, but he left his wife for unknown reasons.
Attempted Assassination of Superman
Bloodsport attempted to assassinate Superman with bullets forged from Kryptonite; however, this attempt was unsuccessful and he was incarcerated in Belle Reve, presumably by Superman himself, where he joined Task Force X.
Suicide Mission to Corto Maltese
In 2021, Bloodsport traveled to Corto Maltese with the second of two Task Force X strike teams to destroy Nazi-era laboratory and holding facility Jotunheim and assassinate ruthless Maltese dictator Silvio Luna.
Bloodsport seems to take his Task Force X membership seriously, 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.
