    The Avenger, Richard Benson, was one of the greatest pulp crime fighters He and his band of associates comprised Justice, Inc., and, armed with keen gadgets, clear genius, stout hearts, good humor, and the force of right set forth from their Bleek Street headquarters to thwart evil, defend goodness, and protect American society The adventures were published as by Kenneth Robeson, the creator of Doc Savage, which may have led to the perception that The Avenger was something of a second rate The Avenger, Richard Benson, was one of the greatest pulp crime fighters He and his band of associates comprised Justice, Inc., and, armed with keen gadgets, clear genius, stout hearts, good humor, and the force of right set forth from their Bleek Street headquarters to thwart evil, defend goodness, and protect American society The adventures were published as by Kenneth Robeson, the creator of Doc Savage, which may have led to the perception that The Avenger was something of a second rate Doc , though the originals were actually written by Paul Ernst and then continued by Ron Goulart many years later Armed with Mike Ike, a very special knife and gun, Benson was teamed with Mac and Smitty analogous to Monk and Ham from the Doc Savage series from the beginning, and then joined by blonde and diminutive Nellie Grey who could definitely have held her own with Pat Savage or Nita van Slaon in the second book, Josh and Rosabel Newton, perhaps the best depicted African American couple from the era in The Sky Walker, and light hearted Cole Wilson in the thirteenth adventure The stories were well paced and exciting and very well written for the context of the era Benson s origin, as recounted in Justice, Inc., the first story, was similar to Bruce Wayne s in that the loss of his family spurred his decision to fight crime his wealth and physical prowess allowed him to do so The loss of his wife and daughter resulted in a weird facialdeformity that made his skin lose its pigmentation and left it malleable like wax so that he could reform it and made him the man of a thousand faces the loss of this ability in the thirteenth novel was a downturn in the series The series continued for a second dozen adventures in the 1940 s, and then revived for a third dozen in the 1970 s when Warner Books had Goulart continue the series for another dozen volumes after they put out the first two dozen in paperback It was a fun and thrill packed intelligent series,down to Earth than the Doc Savage books and much less crazy than The Spider series

    Much like Doc Savage the Avenger fights crime with the help of his aids While the stories aren t as exciting and world ranging as Doc he is still a great pulp character and read Very recommended
