An unnamed taxicab driver was hypnotized by a swami into working for him as a race car driver but was killed. He was resurrected using a “secret fluid” that gave him super-speed and the power of flight. This man soon became a superhero known as Silver Streak and fought during World War II. The speedster was abducted by Solar Man who was desperate to increase his power levels and so he captured many of his peers and locked them away in a device hidden within his Citadel of Seclusion headquarters. This chamber converted its occupants into energy that then fed Solar Man, augmenting his abilities.
It was not until around sixty years later that Rex Dexter released this army of Golden Age heroes from their prison as he sought to find a method to defeat Solar Man. Unaware that his power levels were back down to normal, Solar Man fought against Dragon and some of his allies which resulted in his death.
The United States Government set about relocating the numerous Golden Age heroes to cities around the country. Silver Streak began working with his old ally Daredevil when Emperor Kurr was on the loose. He used his speed to try and locate the hiding villain but failed in his search.
The United States government eventually recruited Silver Streak for the Special Operations Strikeforce (S.O.S.) team. As a member of the S.O.S., he helped thwart major Demonoid and Troll invasions of Chicago.
