The Avenger-Dick Ayers-1955


Here's Darlin' Dick Ayers predating what's generally considered the start of the Silver Age superhero revival with the origin of THE AVENGER...only not the Kenneth Robeson one.

  1. Didn't Sterling's Captain Flash (which also ran for 4 issues) and Prize's FIghting American (seven issues) both predate The Avenger by several months?

  2. Yep. And Atlas's superhero revival was just about a year earlier. As with many things, someone chooses a neat starting point when the truth is a lot messier and more complicated.
