History: (SA#9/1): Hawkeye comes to Speedo's office to learn more about the vigilante known as Blind Justice. After Hawkeye has defeated all Speedo's men, Speedo tells him that he have no information on Blind Justice. He tells him that he would deliver Blind Justice to him on a silver platter if he had any information, because Blind Justice is bad for business, but he has no information on the guy. Hawkeye leaves, and Speedo calls his boss--a woman--who tells him that they could try to kill Hawkeye and blame someone else. Speedo likes the way his boss thinks.
He calls Hawkeye trying to disguise his voice, telling him that there is something going on at the docks tonight. At night, Hawkeye comes to the docks, where he is attacked by Speedo's gang. The vigilante known as Shroud appears and helps Hawkeye defeat the gang. Meanwhile Speedo and his second-in-command, Zipper, is standing on a building nearby watching the fight. Speedo is angry that he can't see anything because of the darkness: he is unaware that Shroud has clouded the docks in darkness. Suddenly Blind Justice appears behind him, and saying that because he wanted to kill an Avenger, he now needs to die. Speedo tells him that he was only making a joke with Hawkeye, reaches for the gun, and tries to shoot Blind Justice. Blind Justice himself also manage to shoot Speedo who dies
