He was called “Doc” Bundy in the streets because of his educated speech and dental assistant background, but adopted the name Amalgam.

When Steel returned back to D.C. on a mission to destroy all the technology he made a Amertek which made its way on the street, he targeted Almalgam’s operation which he learned about from a member of the gang his nephew was a member of. Amalgam holds Steel’s nephew and questions him about his uncle, just then Steel busts in.
