(A) Dick Ayers, Bob Powell
Created by Dick Ayers and Gardner Fox, wealthy scientist Roger Wright became the super-hero known as the Avenger for one reason: To avenge the death of his brother, who was tortured and killed by Soviet agents. His assistant, Claire Farrow, made his costume; Roger asked her to make it after he saw Claire buy a Ghost Rider mask for her nephew. The Avenger had no powers, but he had his own inventions to fall back on, most notably his VTOL aircraft known as the Starjet and Dissolver pistol. The Avenger also possessed a utility belt containing items for almost any occasion. He mainly focused on thwarting the schemes of Soviet forces, both in his native Empire City and around the world. He occasionally battled less conventional villains, such as the Robot Robber and the Player. Previously released as a hardcover and now available for the first time in our popular SOFTEE format. Collects The Avenger #1-4 (Feb/Mar-Aug/Sep 1955) and The Killers #1 (1947).
