Just because they're ONE letter apart, doesn't mean that Blackrock's name is an homage to a completely different character who acts and/or looks nothing like the supposed "homage." Saying Blockrock is an homage to G.B. Blackrock is like saying Dran-O is an homage to jell-O because both end with "-O.". It's kinda graspinag at straws, there.--[[User:Dynamus Prime|Dynamus Prime]] 17:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

:Eh, not a good comparison. It's one letter off a relatively uncommon name. Do you know a lot of "Blackrocks"? Also, Blockrock is Blaster's partner -- Blaster had a significant storyline where he interacted with Blackrock. It's really TOO close not to be a connection/homage. --[[User:MistaTee|MistaTee]] 17:34, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Aw, geez... Edit

Just because they're ONE letter apart, doesn't mean that Blackrock's name is an homage to a completely different character who acts and/or looks nothing like the supposed "homage." Saying Blockrock is an homage to G.B. Blackrock is like saying Dran-O is an homage to jell-O because both end with "-O.". It's kinda graspinag at straws, there.--Dynamus Prime 17:46, 6 September 2008 (UTC)
