After Sentinel and certain Supreme villains escaped from the Hell of Mirrors inside of the Citadel Supreme, he decided to form an team to be an evil counterpart of Youngblood after learning his former teammate Shaft reorganized a new Youngblood team that is no longer sanctioned by the U.S. Government. With the aid of a private investigator from Hoods Accomplice Agents, Sentinel gathered Lounge Lizard, Satana, Speedwall, Poppy, and Atomo to form Badblood. Together, they systematically and almost successfully defeated Youngblood one by one until Waxman came to the rescue and freed Youngblood from their captors.
