A New Relationship
Blake and Rae soon started dating and eventually the two moved in and married, with Blake trying to become somewhat of a stepfather to Cassie. She, however, did not want much to do with Blake as he and Peggy started to grow a resentment to Cassie's father and his way of handling her.
A New Life
After the apparent death of Peggy's ex-husband, Blake and Peggy could not stop Cassie from following in her father's footsteps to become a superhero. This eventually led to Cassie's death at the hands of Doctor Doom, right at the moment that Scott returned from the dead. Some months later, Cassie was revived by a guilt-ridden Doctor Doom. The second chance Peggy and Blake had with her daughter caused them to move to Miami, away from the superhero grace in New York City.
Blake Burdick appears in the Ant-Man film. However, the character has been renamed Paxton and will be portrayed by actor Bobby Cannavale.
