Former vice-mayor of Gotham City. When the Special Election was called in the city, Blackwood set himself up to become the new mayor, supported by Doctor Proditor. He was the highly favored candidate to win up until a scandal involving campaign contributions with PharmaCare and Pastor Ted Haas becoming Mayor West’s new running mate.
He is currently still active in Gotham politics, but without any official power. When the rumors began about Pastor Ted being a metahuman, Blackwood began lobbying for the now vice-mayor to be tested.
