Silver Streak (Public Domain)
Real Name:
Search for 'Silver Streak (Public Domain)' on Amazon


Powers:
Flight, superspeed


Bio:
A taxi driver who was hypnotized by a swami who enjoyed building race cars. The swami's best race car, the Silver Streak, seemed to be targeted by someone or something, for every time someone drove it they were attacked and killed by a giant insect. The taxi driver was attacked and killed, but the swami brought him back to life and put him behind the wheel of the Silver Streak to find the bad guy. Then he became a costumed hero with a "secret fluid" in his blood which allows him to defy gravity. One peculiar trait - Silver Streak's powers can be transferred to others through blood transfusions. That is how both his sidekick Meteor/Mercury, and his pet falcon Whiz received their powers.
