View full history
Overdrive was hired by Mr. Negative to steal an artifact from a museum , but was unable to deliver it because of interference from Spider-Man. Overdrive led Spider-Man on a high-speed chase through the streets of manhatten in The Amazing Spider-Man: Swing Shift. When Spider-Man smashed the windshield of Overdrive's car, it revealed dozens of pieces of Spider-Man related merchandise, such as bobble-heads, air-fresheners, and action figures. Overdrive declared that he was Spider-Man's "biggest fan", even asking for an autograph as Spider-Man was trying to stop him.
The chase finally culminated in a car-wreck that had Overdrive and his vehicle hanging from a bridge in New York by Spider-Man's webbing, with Spider-Man's trademark note, "Courtesy of your friendly neighbor-hood Spider-Man". Overdrive asked the police who were on the scene to arrest him if he could keep the note. Overdrive was then sent by Mr. Negative to steal the Sonic Pulse Generator from a labratory but he failed again when he met Spider-Man once again. Mr. Negative told his man to dispose of Overdrive and Mr. Negative's men put him in the trunck of Mr. Negative's limo and Overdrive was able to escape them by converting the limo into one of his "tricked out" cars.
Overdrive was hired by Boomerang to be a part of his version of the Sinister Six. Overdrive stole the original Big Wheel and upgraded it through his powers. However, the Superior Spider-Man defeated Overdrive and the rest of the Sinister Six using a power dampening field that caused Overdrives nano-bacteria to shut down.
Powers and Abilities
Through nano bacteria that he probably gained at least partially through the work of Mister Negative, Overdrive can alter motor vehicles to his liking (paint job and all). He has given them limited flight, higher power motors, and faster reflexes. It is unknown how well his power works on other vehicles. It is also unknown if the bacteria are released from Overdrive himself or his impressive costume.
