Overdrive was a petty crook and a member of the Inner Demons who is able to transform and transmutate ordinary vehicles via special nanites.

Swing Shift

Overdrive was hired by Mr. Negative to steal the Tablet of Death and Entropy from a museum, but was unable to deliver it because of interference from Spider-Man. In the skirmish that followed, Overdrive led Spider-Man on a high-speed chase through the streets of Manhattan. 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.

Dark Reign

Overdrive was again dispatched by the Inner Demons to steal a Sonic Pulse Generator. Much like last time, he came into conflict with Spider-Man and was hastily defeated and the Sonic Pulse Generator was taken from him.

Overdrive eventually returned to Mr. Negative who ordered Overdrive killed for his constant failures. After being beaten, Overdrive was forced into the boot of a car to be taken elsewhere to be murdered and buried. Using his powers he took control of the car and managed to escape the Inner Demons.


After parting ways with Mr. Negative, Overdrive began to work for the Kingpin and was ordered to kill Black Panther with help from Lady Bullseye. As expected, Overdrive failed and was defeated.

Superior Foes

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 new Spider-Man defeated Overdrive and the rest of the Sinister Six using a power dampening field that caused Overdrive's nano-bacteria to shut down. Overdrive has remained a member of the team, participating in their plan to recover the head of former Maggia leader Silvermane from the Owl. When the team was confronted by Power Man and Iron Fist, Overdrive expressed excitement at meeting Luke Cage, who responded by knocking the villain out with a single punch. Boomerang freed the team while they were in transit to jail.
