Speed Centaur is a member of a race of Centaurs that lived in the Arctic until an earthquake hit. Everyone except Speed died in the process. He was discovered and brought to America by "Reel" McCoy, a reporter for the Daily Views. After Speed reached adulthood, he decided to fight crime.

Powers and Abilities

Speed's powers included flight and being approximately eight times stronger than a normal human. Presumably, Speed Centaur was also resistant to cold (since he lived in the Arctic) and could run as fast as a horse (since he is a centaur).
