Name: Thomas Shepard

Alias: Speed

nicknames: Tommy, Tom

Age: 20

Face claim: Viktor Steensig

Family:William "Wiccan" 


Thomas "Tommy" Shepherd was born and raised in Springfield, New Jersey. He is only son of Frank and Mary Shepherd, who divorced when he was still young. Tommy was in and out of juvenile halls for most of his life. It was in one of the detention centers that Tommy first met Lisa. The two seemed to have had some kind of romantic or physical relationship during this time.

Because Tommy "accidentally" vaporized his high school using his powers, he was imprisoned under court order in a high-powered facility equipped with advanced offensive and defensive technology such as robotic suits and power dampening containment cells. Before the Young Avengers freed him, Tommy had been locked up for months, and was being tested and experimented on with the goal to make him into a living weapon.

Young Avengers

After Hulkling had been captured by the Kree SentriesWiccanand the other Young Avengers were desperate to rescue him. To locate reinforcements the Vision recommended using the Avengers Fail-Safe Program, the same program Iron Lad used to locate the original Young Avengers.

Thomas Shepherd (Earth-616) and William Kaplan (Earth-616) could be twins

The team was able to locate him in a high security detention facility for superpowered juvenile offenders. They release him from his cell, and Stature almost immediately noted that Tommy and Billy could be twins. The breakout did not go unnoticed, and as the team ran into the armed officers of the facility. Tommy cynically and cruelly began attacking the officers and fleeing doctors, but was stopped by Kate Bishop and Patriot.

Tommy taking on the codename "Speed" and joining the Young Avengers

Speed helped the team in battling both Kree and Skrulls soldiers to rescue Hulking. After the battle, Tommy officially joined the team and adopted the codename "Speed". Speed was anxious to be a hero, and was the first to alert the Young Avengers that the villainous team, the Zodiac, was attacking the United Nations.

Civil War

Along with the rest of his team, Speed sided with Captain America and the Secret Avengers against the Superhuman Registration Act, which led to the Superhero Civil War.

Thomas Shepherd (Earth-616) and Molly Hayes (Earth-616) 001

Speed befriending Molly Hayes

When the Runaways tried to stay out of the conflict, they barely managed to escape from the government forces. Hearing of this development in the news, the Young Avengers decided to help the Runaways even though Captain America vetoed the plan. Wiccan used his magic to locate and teleport to the Runaways. However, the Runaways believed that the Young Avengers had come to capture them and a fight ensued until Patriot succeeded in convincing Nico Minoru to stop the hostilities. Speed develop a close sibling-like friendship with Molly Hayes.The two teams were later attacked by Marvel Boy, who captured Wiccan, Karolina, and Hulkling, and almost killed Xavin. The young heroes became the prisoners of the Warden, who proceeded to practice vivisection on the unconscious Teddy. The boys were rescued by Xavin, whose Skrull physiology allowed him to recover from Noh-Varr's attack. Billy came close to killing the Warden, but Teddy stopped him.

Searching for the Scarlet Witch

When Wiccan decided to begin searching for the Scarlet Witch, Tommy agreed to joined him. The pair searched through Genosha and Wundagore in Transia before finally encountering Master Pandemonium in CresskillNew Jersey at a former residence of the Scarlet Witch and the Vision. Master Pandemonium offered some information, but did not know the current whereabouts of the Scarlet Witch.

Not long after, Speed went on a date with Kate to help relieve her tensions about losing her codename and bow to Clint Barton. The date ended with the pair breaking into the New AvengersBrooklyn apartment and reclaiming her bow.

Secret Invasion

When the Skrulls invaded Earth, Speed joined the other Young Avengers and Runaways on the front lines of the battle. Speed and Wiccan saved Hulkling from execution and later assisted Xavin to again rescue Hulkling.

Dark Reign and Siege

Speed and Coat of Arms recognizing one another

When the Young Avengers confronted the group of teenagers who had been using their name, Tommy immediately recognized one of their members, Coat of Arms, with whom he may have had a relationship with in "juvie".

During the Siege of Asgard, Tommy was the armor-bearer for Tony Stark. Speed along with the other Young Avengers helped rescue the fallen from warriors and civilians after the battle. Speed was pushing himself hard but still felt like he was failing until Ronin found him. He simply let Speed know that giving it his all would always be enough.

Speed meeting Quicksilver

Children's Crusade

After Wiccan's powers overloaded and the Avengers decided to keep him under observation, Speed and the other Young Avengers broke Wiccan out of holding and began the search for the Scarlet Witch. Accompanied by Magneto the team travelled to Transia where they met Quicksilver and a fake Wanda, who was revealed to be a Doombot. Wiccan teleported himself into Latveria and discovered a depowered and amnesiac Wanda engaged to Doctor Doom. The Young Avengers, Magneto and Quicksilver went after Wiccan, as well as the Avengers. A battle with Doom's Doombot army soon broke out and was only stopped by the arrival of Iron Lad.

Iron Lad teleported the Young Avengers and Wanda into the timestream. They all went into the past, and met a reanimated Jack of Hearts, who exploded. After that, Wanda remembered who she was, regained her powers and returned herself, the Young Avengers and Scott Lang into the present.She then finally confirmed that Billy and Tommy were indeed her reincarnated sons.

A New Young Avengers Team

Sometime after their induction into the Avengers, the Young Avengers again decided to disband largely at Wiccan's urging. Teddy and Tommy moved in with the Kaplans, but Tommy moved out a short time later. As the other Young Avengers stayed away from heroic activities, he separated from them. He was hired by a company hiring superpowered beings, assembling electronic components at a superhuman speed (five minutes equalling to a month of work) for a few weeks and saving that money to travel for a few months, before repeating the cycle.

In that company, he met David Alleyne, the depowered mutant formerly known as Prodigy and started hang out with him. Soon after, someone broke into the company building, under the guise of Patriot. After having confirmed that Elijah Bradley wasn't involved, Speed decided to inquire about it, and took Prodigy with him. Waiting for him at night, the duo confronted the entity, and Speed was seemingly dematerialized by the attacker. Speed managed to reappear after Prodigy settled his dispute with the mysterious entity with no memory of the events that transpired while he was gone.


Superhuman Speed: Speed can run, move and react at speeds far greater than the average human. His top running speed is unrecorded, but it is demonstrated that he can at least achieve Mach 4. It is unclear if his running ability exceeds that of Quicksilver given that the adult speedster was carrying Wiccan over his shoulder and was on a conversation with him during the friendly challenge issued by Speed.

  • Molecular Acceleration: He can also generate hyper-kinetic vibrations that accelerate the molecules in matter, causing any solid object he directs his vibrations at to explode.
  • Intangibility: He also can use molecular destabilization to walk through solid objects.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Speed's physiology grants him greater stamina when compared to an ordinary human, allowing him to operate at peak capacity for at least several hours before he begins to grow tired.

The race will begin

Speed and Quicksilver racing

  • Superhuman Agility: Speed's physiology grants him superhuman agility being more flexible and having greater balance.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: He's capable of reacting fast, because he's moving at superhuman speeds everything moves slower for him.
  • Superhuman Durability: Speed's physiology also provides him with limited protection against impact forces and the high levels of friction that are produced when he moves at superhuman speed.
  • Superhuman Strength: Speed possesses a limited degree of superhuman strength, allowing him to lift about 800 lbs with his arms and 1 ton with his legs.
  • Accelerated Perception: Speed's brain processes information at an accelerated rate to match his bodily speed, enabling him to perceive his surroundings while traveling at high velocities. To him, this makes it seems as if the world is going in slow motion.

Strength level

He can press between 800 pounds to 1 ton with his lower body and lift about 800 to 1000 pounds in his upper body.


Despite possessing some level of superhuman durability, things such as bullets and energy blasts can injure him the same way they injure a regular person.

The Blue Bolt stood upon his vantage point, looking over the city of New York as he searched for his target. “Tristian, you find him yet?” ‘Not yet Lance. I’ve accessed locale traffic cams and any wifi accessible cameras, but it seems like the target knows how to stay off the grid.’ “You could say that again. We probably won’t find him until he wants to be found.” The Speedster conversed with his A.I partner, until he saw another being running up the building he was on, behind him. “Oh a local… This should be fun. “

Lance looked straight at Speed as he reached the apex of the building, a slight smirk on his face. “Pietro huh? Nope, that aint me.” ‘Automatic protcals activated Lightning Lance, searching all known Speedsters in the area, cross referenced with the name Pietro.’ Tristian spoke into his ear, Lance didn’t like being caught off guard or unknowing. “Names Lightning Lance, how bout you?” Then his next question was dropped, made the Speedster consider his response. “Well, I can go faster. Speed’s kinda my thing, well, lightning really. But that parts obvious right?” It wasn’t his first time on a different Earth, in the presence of a foreign superpowered metahuman.
