Comments: Created by Ted Steele.

Speed Savage teamed up with Captain Wonder in Triumph Comics #18 (1944) after a competition asking readers to suggest new stories for Speed was won by a fan who requested a crossover with the other hero.

He changed his costume from the one below to the one above in Triumph Comics #15, during an ongoing conflict with the Black Raven, "streamlining it" to make it more efficient.
