Lemar was once a wrestler who was given superhuman strength by the Power Broker. Hoskins became one of the Bold Urban Commandos, known as “the Buckies.” They wore variations of the Captain America costume, and were employed by John Walker, the SuperPatriot.
When the federal Commission on SuperHuman Activities eventually selected Walker to replace Steve Rogers as Captain America, was the only Bucky allowed to remain in his employ. Lemar took the identity of Bucky, after the originaly Bucky Barnes, and underwent a rigorous training under the supervision of Dr. Valerie Cooper. In their secret identities, Lemar and John Walker went on missions for the Commission.
Lemar took on the identity of Battlestar after another black man convinced him that Bucky was a demeaning title. When Steve Rogers regained the identity of Captain America, Battlestar left federal employment, and returned to his native Chicago. He has since become a member of Silver Sable’s Wild Pack.
