History: Hector Lennox served four years in the United States Army. Disillusioned because he saw no action during his peacetime service, Lennox signed up for the Power Broker's strength augmentation process. He joined the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation as a wrestler. Later, his army friend John Walker, the U.S. Agent, asked him to become a member of his Bold Urban Commandos, or "Buckies". The Buckies wore variations of Captain America's costume and originally pretended to support Captain America. The Buckies pretended to attack the U.S. Agent at a Central Park rally as a public relations stunt. The Buckies also conducted a campaign of intimidation and even physical attacks against foreigners as part of an antiterrorist campaign. (No evidence has been recorded that the Buckies targets were in fact guilty of terrorist activity.)

Later, Walker was chosen by the federal Commission on Superhuman Activities to replace Steve Rogers as Captain America. Walker asked to be allowed to continue to work with the Buckies, but the Commission approved only of Lemar Hoskins.

Angered by the Commission's decision, and feeling betrayed by Walker and Hoskins, Lennox and his partner assumed the costumed identities of Left-Winger and Right-Winger and upstaged the new Captain America at a press conference in Washington D.C. There they revealed his secret identity on national television. Learning this fact, a group of self-appointed moralists known as the Watchdogs, whose radical moral crusade the new Captain America had suppressed, kidnaped Walker's parents to lure him into a trap. During the ensuing melee, Walker's parents were shot and killed.

Walker went berserk and sought revenge upon Left-Winger and Right-Winger, whom he blamed for his parents' deaths. He hunted them down by threatening their own parents and he finally confronted them at an oil refinery outside Dallas, Texas. Blind with rage, the new Captain America easily defeated Left-Winger and Right-Winger. He tied them to an oil tank and handed Left-Winger his torch, challenging him to burn through the cables before Right-Winger's torch ignited the tank. They failed to do so and the oil tank exploded, leaving Left-Winger and Right-Winger near dead.

Whereas a normal, unprotected human being would have surely died from the explosion, it is believed that the Power Brokers strength augmentation process also increases the subject's resistance to injury.

Walker was later told the two took their own lives in the hospital, rather than live in agony. Walker investigated the claim by exhuming their bodies and discovered it was true.
