It's tempting to say Speed Centaur was the oddest of the oddballs, but with so many oddballs around it's hard to be sure. He certainly was an odd one. To begin with, he was, like, a centaur! Four legs, hooves, human torso on top of a horse torso, etc., making it hard to figure how he fits into human society while at the same time conferring little apparent benefit on his pursuit of urban adventure…Speed didn't start out as a city dweller. He was born into a tribe of similar creatures, which lived far away in the frozen North. When he was very young an earthquake wiped out all the others. He was found wandering alone through a snowstorm by trapper Maurice Norton, who raised him, teaching him English and French. Later, he took up with a reporter named Jerry "Reel" McCoy, who hailed from civilized climes. It was Jerry who brought Speed to New York, where, with Jerry as assistant, he took up the avocation of superheroing.
