|“||Maybe I can't turn invisible, but I am the world's fastest man. Like, I can outrun anybody or anything.||„|
|~ A-Train to Colby.|
A-Train is one of the main characters in the Amazon series The Boys. He is a speedster who used to be a part of a team known as Teenage Kix but is now a member of The Seven. He inadvertently killed Robin Ward (Hughie Campbell's girlfriend) with his powers while high on Compound V, which led Hughie to join The Boys for revenge.
A-Train is a former member of The Seven and the current "fastest man in the world" but underneath the cavalier exterior of a celebrity superhero, lies the soul of a mortal athlete with deep insecurities about staying at the top. He’ll do whatever it takes to remain in The Seven because he knows it’s only a matter of time until a younger, faster challenger takes his place — and that’s a problem even the fastest man in the world can’t outrun.
