-- Overdrive src 

Origin

Overdrive had always wanted to be a superhero and despite a talent as a motorist, specifically race cars, he tried many different methods to become a super hero. When they all failed he tried to to start a normal life as a race car driver. After a horrible accident he was approached by Mr. Negative to become a member of his organization[1]. He became a petty crook and a member of the Inner Demons who is able to transform and transmutate ordinary vehicles via special nanites. He would have a relativly successful heist when he adapted a motorcycle helmet to his costume just as he was fleeing Hercules, with the helmet on Hercules did not recognize him, overdrive has worn it as part of his costume ever since[2].

Swing Shift

Overdrive was charged 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.

Spider-Island

After in-amicably parting ways with Mr. Negative, Overdrive was hired by the Kingpin and ordered to retrieve a kidnapping victim, however the Black Panther interfered despite the intervention of Lady Bullseye. As expected, Overdrive failed and was defeated.[3]

He would later be involved in another kidnapping case trying to get Terri Hillman but was again foiled by Spider-man[4]

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.
