After winning a fight against Terry MacLaren he took MacLaren's title, "the Guvnor", and was invited to enter an underground fighting tournament in the Savage Land, run by the Warlord, a Hydra leader and drug manufacturer. However, upon finding it was to the death, Black decided to escape. In doing so he encountered the Super-Soldiers and, after helping them destroy the Warlord's operation they recruited him into their ranks.
