History: (Captain America and the Mighty Avengers#2) - Blue Streak formed a team of criminals, outfitted them with roller-bladed power suits like his own, and dubbed them the Fast Five. They committed a high-speed robbery that netted them several large bags of cash, but as they escaped, they ran afoul of Spectrum, who had foiled Blue Streak before. They split up, only to run afoul of Spectrum's Mighty Avengers teammates. Silver Ghost evaded Spectrum initially, but was eventually tricked by her image-distortion abilities. Blue Streak had his armor shredded by White Tiger, Gold Rush surrendered to Power Man, Redline was banished to the Purple Dimension by Kaluu, and Green Light blinded She-Hulk and Blue Marvel, but the latter still blasted her. 

(Captain America: Sam Wilson#8 (fb) ) - After they were arrested, the Fast Five were transported to Pleasant Hill, a SHIELD prison where super villains were transformed by Kobik, a sentient Cosmic Cube, into innocuous civilians and used to populate an idyllic small town; the Five were transformed into skateboarding kids.

(Captain America: Sam Wilson#8) - Reverted to their original forms by Baron Zemo, the Fast Five began looting the town museum as they prepared to escape. They were discovered by SHIELD Agent Avril Kincaid, who defeated Gold Rush, Green Light, Redline, and Silver Ghost, as they were stuck in close quarters and unable to reach full speed. Blue Streak got the drop on her, but SHIELD Agent Wendell Vaughn, masquerading as the town librarian, hit him over the head with a book before he could seriously hurt her.
