In JLA #27 (March 1999), Bloodwynd officially joins an emergency expansion of the Justice League in order to battle a rampaging Amazo. The battle, which takes place in the Florida Everglades, goes badly as most of the JLA are defeated and their powers copied. Amazo loses his powers when Superman officially disbands the league.

Day of Judgment

Main article: Day of Judgment (comics)

He was last seen during the Day of Judgement storyline and in JLA Black Baptism serving as a member of the Sentinels of Magic. In the latter storyline, he was badly injured by the Diablos, a group of Mafia-styled demons who wished to gain revenge for demons slain during the Day of Judgement.

Powers

Bloodwynd is an accomplished necromancer. He can also summon the spirits of the dead, which give him life energy and increased power. And he can sense where death has occurred, he can also force murderers to experience the pain of their victims similar to Ghost Rider's "Penance Stare" according to a story entitled Hero of Choice in Showcase '94 #5 by writer Ruben Diaz and artist Max Douglas.

The Blood Gem on his chest also grants him unspecified mystical powers, it is unknown whether the other gems on his costume confer any occult abilities. Also unknown is whether these magical gems have any connection to Doctor Mist one of whose origins stated that he created a series of magical gems

Yes, he was Martian Manhunter.  I didn't care for that at all.   There's not enough black characters as it is, they finally have an interesting character and he is someone else.

Nice job DC. :/ 

I'd like to see Dwayne McDuffie's take on Bloodwynd.

does anyone know in which issue his identity was told? or at least a panel where someone calls him "freddy" instead of bloodwynd? thatd be really cool because my real name is the exact same name as bloodwynds so if someone knew anything thatd be awesome!!! :) thanks

He got sucked into his gem which was used by a mind controlled MM who assumed Bloodwynd's form for a while, but he was freed later.

@superduper13: I think the freddy widmer mess is made up. I haven't found anything even suggests that he has a real name.
