History: (Deadpool Corps: Rank and Foul#1) - Art school student Harrison Stavrou inhaled a combination of various toxic paint fumes in a freak accident. Gaining superhuman speed from the accident he became the fun-loving, super-powered Street Speeder.

(Deadpool III#56)- Street Speeder annoyed some old ladies by running around late at night, sometimes after nine o'clock. The women hired Deadpool to kill him. First Deadpool tried to kill him with a huge gun, but the Street Speeder avoided it. Then Deadpool launched himself from a slingshot to try to catch the Speeder in a net, but Street Speeder agian avoided it and Deadpool crashed into a wall and had a piano fall on him. Deadpool then used a rocketpack to try to catch up to the Speeder, but when he did the Speeder just stopped and Deadpool crashed into a fireworks factory. Later, when Deadpool's home was destroyed the Street Speeder checked it out. Deadpool shot him in the gut.

Comments: Created by Buddy Scalera and Karl Kerschl.

Remind you of any cartoon birds? Except unlike Wile E. Coyote, Deadpool managed to off his opponent as he stopped by as if to say "meep meep."

Thanks to Buddy Scalera the Street Speeder received an origin in his Deadpool Corps: Rank and Foul#1 profile.

Profile by Patrick D Ryall

Street Speeder should not be confused with:

The unnamed old ladies were annoyed by Street Speeder running around the streets at night (sometimes later than nine o'clock!). They had a bake sale to raise money and got $21,025.73 to put towards having Street Speeder killed. They first called the Avengers, but when they learned they didn't kill they called Deadpool instead, having heard he was a "conscience-free lowlife scum who felt no remorse about snuffing out a human life". Deadpool took the job, but when he started having trouble making the kill the old ladied decided they would hire someone from the Sinister Six instead. By this point however, Deadpool refused to let the Speeder give their money back as he took the case personally now. Eventually 'Pool did kill his target.
