Edward Black Wolf, aka Supermax, is a Native American member of the 50-State Initiative team the Desert Stars, who are based in Arizona.

During the Secret Invasion, Skrulls were infiltrating the Initiative by placing a Skrull agent on each team. The Desert Stars were dealing with a problem in the city of Phoenix when 3-D Man and the Skrull Kill Krew discovered that Blacksmith was an actual Skrull infiltrator.

Blacksmith revealed his true identity and attacked. Blacksmith was later killed by Riot and Supermax was left to recover from his injuries.[citation needed]
