I think the original costume suited him better than the red tights. But that said, Whatever Happened to the Crimson Avenger from DC Comics Presents #38 is still probably my all-time favourite DC Comics story...

A character who really deserves more exposure, but is unlikely ever to get it. First time I ever saw him was in DC Comics Presents #38, and Whatever Happened to the Crimson Avenger is still one of my all-time favourite stories.

"Travis's two-fisted alter ego." Um... was Travis normally one-handed, or something?

Should we wish him a "Happy Belated 81st Anniversary" or go ahead and say "Happy 82nd Anniversary" now?

(According to the GCD, Detective Comics #20 went on sale back on September 7th, 1938.)

After Roy Thomas' work with the Golden Age Crimson Avenger in Secret Origins #5 (August 1986) and a four-issue mini-series that began in 1988, the character was given a revised Who's Who entry in Who's Who Update '88 Vol. 1 (August 1988):
