This unnamed incarnation of Godspeed was sent from the future from the to terrorize Central City.
The unnamed man, behind the Godspeed identity, was born at some point in time in the future. As the true Godspeed desired Barry Allen's speed for himself, he brainwashed the man and suited him up as Godspeed, sending him into the past as he already did before with other three men.
"Godspeed" began ravaging Central City, forcing the Flash and its team to fight him: the Scarlet Speedster chased him all around the city, eventually catching him and discovering that the villain was just another fake, who was not even able to talk, like others before him. Then, Barry escorted him to Iron Heights.
After the Paragons rebooted the Multiverse, "Godspeed" was reborn in his future timeline and the events, which led him to go back in time, still happened: in the new history of Earth-Prime, he was still defeated by the Flash and imprisoned in Iron Heights.
