In the Initial Era, Sanchez first appears in "Bruce the Brutal Brontosaurus" Number 1 (1993). His workers are killed by Bruce and Tattoo, and some of his drug crops are set ablaze by the dinosaur. From his third mansion on the side of Mt. Adversario, Sanchez sees this happening on surveillance cameras and vows to bring out the big guns. This story did not finish as the Bruce series only produced one issue.
