Blue Streak


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This odd character (a disco guy on roller skates) was primarily seen in a 1978/79 Captain America storyline. Then he was killed off in 1986, though at that point he had a better costume and a more reasonable modus operandi. He returned later, but years after this profile was done.

These are ancient notes, mostly inspired by a Dragon Magazine article decades ago.

Powers and Abilities

The Streak is a well-trained special agent, although he grew complacent and stopped training.

The Blue Streak armor can efficiently protect the wearer from small arms fire, high-speed impacts, and aerosols. It includes powerful wrist lasers. These can melt through a 2” steel plate in 30 seconds.

Strangely, it also sports a pair of roller skates with powerful rocket engines. These allow for speeds of 125+mph and short rocket-assisted jumps. With his Acrobatics skill and speed, the Blue Streak can even skate on vertical surfaces for a short time.


History

The Streak was a part of the late 1970s SHIELD super-agent program. It was one of that organization’s attempts at building a group of super-powered operatives. He was also a mole for the criminal organization’s known as the Corporation. However, the Blue Streak was unmasked and defeated by Captain America.

After leaving prison, he returned to his criminal ways. He operated out of the way in the American Midwest, hijacking armoured money transports. However, the Scourge of the Underworld found him and killed him in 1986.


Personality

A very minor villain, the Blue Streak is nevertheless reasonably smart and skilled. Yet he acts more confident than he should.


Description

The costume above is the more recent one. Below is the first, disco fever costume.
