Today we’re kicking off the Villains & Vigilantes profiles of the world’s greatest superhero team: The Justice Federation! Based in Justice Tower (the former Crusader Citadel) in Calvert, Maryland’s Inner Harbor, the Justice Federation has been keeping the world safe for more than a decade. We’ll begin the profiles with one of the Federation’s founding members, wisecracking speedster Bluestreak.

BLUESTREAK

Like Deep Freeze, Bluestreak is another former broadcaster. While on the air, Alan Blucher was foolishly wearing his headphones during a thunderstorm. The broadcast tower was struck by lightning, and improper grounding carried the current into the studio where Blucher was struck. After he recovered, Blucher discovered he’d gained several metahuman abilities. After a short solo crimefighting career, Bluestreak became a founding member of the Justice Federation in the late 1990’s.

Bluestreak is known for both his crimefighting prowess and his irreverence; the man can crack wise with the best of them. Bluestreak particularly enjoys his periodic teamups with Silver City’s Deep Freeze; the one-liners fly fast and furious, and their heroic adventures together tend to play out like a 1970’s “buddy movie”, a weird cross between Butch and Sundance and Maverick.
