OriginsEdit

The Crimson Avenger (Lee Walter Travis) is a masked crime fighter in the DC Comics Universe and the first to use the name "Crimson Avenger." He first appears in Detective Comics #20 (October 1938) and was created by Jim Chambers.

The Crimson Avenger had many similarities to The Green Hornet, including a sidekick named Wing who was an Asian valet and a gas gun that he used to subdue opponents. He initially dressed in a red trenchcoat, a fedora, and a red mask covering his face; except for the red, he was visually similar to The Shadow. Later, when superheroes became more popular than costumed vigilantes, his costume was changed to a more standard superhero outfit, consisting of red tights, yellow boots, trunks and crest, and a "sun" symbol which was recently revealed to have been a stylized bullet hole. Some months after this, the Crimson Avenger made his first appearance as a member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory in Leading Comics #1.

EffectsEdit

Worn by the Original Crimson Avenger, the first mystery men of the 1940s.  While renown for his twin colt pistols, he managed to evade most attacks with the help of his black fedora.  Increases the agility and durability of the wearer, and incites the user to track down crime.  Currently stored in the Schuster-Lee Sector of the Warehouse.
