-- The Avenger src


After his wife and daughter were kidnapped and killed, Richard Benson's personal life began to curl up and die too. The shock of his family's death had a bizarre effect on him, as his face and hair became dead white, giving him an "ice cold" paralyzed appearance.

To cope with his tragedy, he founded the crime-fighting firm "Justice, Inc." in hopes of bringing some sense of order to his world and to fight for those who had suffered at the hands of criminals. He set up shop on Bleek Street, the most crime-ridden neighborhood in New York. His firm took on cases not based on how much the client could pay, but on how dire their need for justice was.

Justice, Inc.

Benson formed the crime-fighting group, Justice Incorporated.


  • Disguise: Benson was a master of disguises and could change his physical appearance to resemble anyone he wanted to, with perfection.[1]
  • Marksmanship: Benson never shot to kill. He was such a great marksman that he could "create" a bad guy's skull with a bullet and knock him out.[1]
  • Hand-to-Hand Combat (Advanced): Benson is an experienced foe, and can best many people in combat.
  • Judo: Benson has studied the art of judo.[1]


  • The Avenger was originally a character found in pulp magazines from 1939-1942. DC's first take on the character originated with a 4-issue series published in 1975. The stories took place in the late 1930s and outside of the DC universe.
