The Crimson Avenger tries to help Superman and Batman stop the Octopus Gang but learns that he needs more training.

Notes

First and only appearance of the 2nd Crimson Avenger. His predecessor (Lee Walter Travis) debuted in Detective Comics (DC, 1937 series) #20. Interestingly, Crimson Avenger states that he has taken the name of a former lawman, presumably the 1930's version.
