Blockbuster Polar Bear, formerly known as Bark the Polar Bear, is an alternate reality version of Bark the Polar Bear and a member of the dwindling resistance opposing Enerjak in an alternate future zone. He was partially Roboticized in order to treat injuries, as his torso and much of his limbs are robotic.
Blockbuster is a large, pale yellow polar bear with blue eyes. Being an alternate-universe counterpart, he's very similar in appearance to Bark the Polar Bear. However, there are a few notable differences. Older, his face is more worn and he has some lines around the eyes. His torso, as well as much of his limbs, are all robotic. He wears a red headband, and brown and red gloves and boots.
The Last Resistance
Blockbuster had joined up with Jani-Ca's resistance movement and was one of the few left free after their attempt to defeat Enerjak was foiled. At some point, he had presumably become injured. Cutlass Depardieu had wrote a letter to Jani-Ca about a man, Sir Charles Hedgehog, from their world that he had told her about before. In the letter, he mentioned that Charles was amazingly brilliant and knew of a medical technique that was sure to save some lives. He warned that it was a dangerous technology and that Charles was loath to use it, but Cutlass had convinced him that it was truly for the greater good. He ended the letter by telling Jani-Ca to give his regards to Blockbuster Polar Bear, who was in need of Charles' Roboticizer. Eventually, Blockbuster had parts of his body Roboticized.

Blockbuster continued to live in hiding within Nekronopolis; one day, he and the other Freedom Fighters ventured out to attack a group of Enerjak's Prelate warriors. Using his enhanced cybernetic strength, Blockbuster managed to crush one of the Prelates into the ground. It was soon discovered that the Prelates had been after Silver the Hedgehog; when the young hedgehog made the faux pas of calling Jani-Ca by her original name, the echidna reacted violently, though Blockbuster calmly stopped her from acting rashly. The group returned to their hidden base with the hedgehog, with Blockbuster lifting a junk pile to reveal the entrance. Unfortunately, they were soon discovered by Enerjak, who set his reformed Prelates against the group; the very one Blockbuster himself had earlier destroyed had now gotten the drop on the polar bear.

Despite his brute strength, Blockbuster is fairly calm and clear-thinking, gently offering his insight when necessary. He is a gentle giant, and he appears to be Jani-Ca's mentor, or at least a regular voice of reason in her ear. Blockbuster stuck to Jani-Ca's side until the very end. Even when cornered by Enerjak with no hope for back-up, he fought to protect the true Guardian of Angel Island. (ASUB)
