History: The Blue Streak was an operative of the subversive called the Corporation who was assigned to infiltrate the international intelligence and law-enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "super-agent" program. Inspired by the large number of superhuman crimefighters, S.H.I.E.L.D. had decided to create its own team of operatives who had actual superhuman abilities or, like the Blue Streak, utilized equipment that enabled them to perform superhuman feats. The Blue Streak wore unusual rocket-propelled skates that enabled him to move at great superhuman speed. However, the Blue Streak was exposed as a Corporation spy and was defeated in combat by Captain America.

After leaving prison, the Blue Streak led a successful career as a professional criminal in the American Midwest. His rocket skates and laser weaponry enabled him to pursue moving vehicles on highways and rob them. Eventually the Blue Streak clashed again with Captain America, who encountered him off a highway in the northern Appalachian Mountains. The Streak finally succeeded in decoying Captain America into going down a Cliffside looking for him, while the Streak actually escaped in another direction. Unable to travel much further using his skates, the Streak hitchhiked a ride with the driver of a truck. However, the driver was actually the vigilante Scourge, in disguise, who murdered the Streak.

Strength Level: The Blue Streak possessed the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engaged in moderate regular exercise.

Known Superhuman Powers: None

Weapons: The Blue Streak wore laser weapons on his wrists and arms that could project intense beams sufficient to melt through the side of an armored car within less than thirty seconds.

The Blue Streak also carried sharp tacks that he would scatter behind him to puncture the tires of pursuing vehicles.

Transportation: The Blue Streak wore "rocket skates" that enabled him to skate at speeds at least up to 125 miles per hour. The roller skates were mounted on boots that contained jet equipment that thrust concentrated streams of air behind the Steak, propelling him forward. The Streak could activate retro-rockets (which also fired jets of air) in the toes of his boots to propel him backwards. The Blue Streak could skate so fast he could travel up walls. The skates also enabled him to make leaps of ten feet.

Paraphernalia: The Blue Streak wore a costume containing a visor for his eyes, heavy padding, and armor, to protect himself from the effect of air friction and resistance, and also to shield himself from injury in the case of an accident. The Streak's costume contained breathing equipment to enable him to take in oxygen while moving at high speeds.
