History: Dave Speed was just an ordinary cop, until the day he was caught in a nuclear blast. He had been investigating a case on a former Indian reservation located near a military shooting range, when a missile exploded. Dave was exposed to a radioactive red powder, and from that day forward, he became the most powerful cop on the force, as long as he didn't see the color red. If he did, he lost all his super powers. He used his powers to thwart a notorious counterfeiting ring alongside his partner, Sgt. Willie Dunlop, even surviving execution attempts after being framed for murder.

Comments: Created by Robert Brodie Booth and Sabatino Ciuffini, Dave Speed appeared in a low budget, joint Spanish-American production. Terence Hill played Dave, while Ernest Borgnine portrayed his partner, Willy.
