Hector Lennox and Jerome Johnson served for four years in the United States Army and came out both disappointed and disillusioned because they saw no action during their peacetime service. Lennox and Johnson signed up for the Power Broker's strength augmentation process, gaining superhuman strength, and soon joined the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation.
While wrestling in that league, they were approached by John Walker, then known as the vigilante Super Patriot, to join his group, the "Buckies" (Bold Urban Commandos). As members of the Buckies, they wore costumes modeled on the uniform of the hero Captain America and originally pretended to support him. The group staged a fake attack on the Super Patriot as a publicity stunt at a Central Park rally. The Buckies also threatened and intimidated innocent foreigners as a part of an anti-terrorist campaign. These stunts were opposed and stopped by Captain America.
When the Super Patriot was chosen to replace Captain America on behalf of the U.S. government, he asked if he could still work with the Buckies, but only one member of the group was approved by the government (Lemar Hoskins, who later became the hero called Battlestar). Angered by being left out and feeling betrayed by Walker and Hoskins, Lennox and Johnson assumed the costumed identities of Left-Winger and Right-Winger.
