Biography

Early acts

Robert DuBois joined the military and was stationed at Fort Harrison, where he was part of the security detail.

At some point after his service, DuBois became a mercenary and terrorist. He once led a bombing of City Hall in National City, after which he fell off the radar.[1]

Attacking the unveiling

Several years later in late 2017, DuBois was hired by Morgan Edge to bomb the National City waterfront. For this endeavor, he stole a high-pressure regulator, along with aluminum rods to cover his true intentions. DuBois and his team were pursued by the NCPD and eventually encountered Supergirl. DuBois attacked her with an electric baton, but the superheroine easily defeated him and threw him off the truck. As she was occupied with stopping the runaway vehicle, DuBois escaped with the regulator.

The next night, DuBois broke into his former base to steal a cloaking device from a Daxamite war ship in General Sam Lane's possession. When Supergirl arrived, DuBois used the ship's beams to stun her and attack some nearby soldiers, allowing him to escape once more. With the regulator, DuBois stabilized the internal force of a submarine to withstand the pressure emitted from the cloaking device. Once the submarine was ready, DuBois met with Edge to confirm they could proceed with the plan.

During the unveiling of the Girl of Steel statue at the waterfront, DuBois began firing missiles at the area from underwater, causing earthquakes on the surface. When Supergirl found the submarine, DuBois ordered his men to fire and detonate a stray nuke to incapacitate her. However, Supergirl nonetheless managed to stop the next missile and lift the submarine out of the water, foiling their plans. DuBois was subsequently arrested.[1]
