History: Growing up, Steve Quick was interested in the sciences. He applied his keen mind to various disciplines but focused much of his studies on geology. Possessing an entrepreneurial spirit, Quick desired to go into business for himself. After college, he made his mark in the oil industry as an expert surveyor. He used this experience to form his own oil services company.

While running his own business, Steve Quick continued to pursue scientific research as a private hobby. He discovered ways to control several forms of energy. He experimented with sound waves. Quick also became obsessed with trying to unravel the secrets of the mysterious other-dimensional Darkforce. Eventually, he achieved some success in this area. However, his greatest achievement was his research into accelerating human metabolic processes. He discovered ways to tap into the brain and stimulate aspects of the nervous system. Using this technology allowed Steve Quick to truly live up to his family name. He was the living embodiment of speed. He could run fast, very fast.

Shortly after Dr. Darkforce left the Protectors, Steve Quick made the decision to follow in his footsteps. Quick assumed a super-hero identity and called himself the Blitz. The Blitz met with the Protectors and announced his desire to join them. Down one member, they gladly accepted his application.

The Blitz quickly saw action against Doctor Overhead and his gang. Afterwards, he traveled with the Protectors out west to the Rockies. While there, they discovered that Iron Man had been captured. The Blitz fought with the Protectors against many villains, including the Mandarin. However, it was combat against the mercenary super-villain Blizzard that led to his downfall. The Blitz got caught up in Gravitron's rage and vengeance toward Blizzard. After Blizzard had been beaten into unconsciousness, Gravitron and the Blitz continued their attacks, hoping to deliver a killing blow. The Protectors restrained the attackers and voted to throw them out of the group. Gravitron and the Blitz were furious with the decision and attacked the Protectors. After being subdued, both former heroes were turned over to the police. The Blitz is currently serving time in a federal prison.
