What is the Infiniteam?

This About, Characters entry posted at 12:39 PM on September 14, 2006

The Infiniteam is a group of five adventurers: Leviathan, Visionary, Speedfreak, Hotstreak, and Graviteer.

Leviathan is an explorer who is strong, resistant to damage, can live underwater, and can grow to forty stories tall. Visionary, a world-renowned quantum physicist, has eyes that can shoot blasts and see beyond the visible spectrum. Speedfreak and Hotstreak, the twin daughters of Visionary, can move at phenomenal speeds—Speedfreak can run faster, but Hotstreak can generate small amounts of fire. Graviteer is a student and martial artist who can manipulate gravity fields around human-sized objects. Their floating headquarters has been dubbed "Complex City" for its ability to rebuild its interior by automatically shifting walls and floor depending upon the needs of the inhabitants.

All five members of the Infiniteam gained their powers in the same quantum accident. Visionary was attempting to breach the quantum barrier, but instead an act of sabotage caused a quantum explosion. A powerful and vicious entity from another dimension was released into Earth from this explosion, but it also imbued the nearby victims with amazing powers. The entity was soon defeated by those would would become the Infiniteam.

Since that time, the Infiniteam have continued thwarting global threats and supernatural menaces. The bulk of their adventures have been so public and so large in scope that the press has dubbed the Infiniteam "America's Greatest Super-team!"

The Infiniteam was first mentioned in Local Heroes strip #52 (within Storyline 3 — “Theory of Evilution”).
