Appearance of Death


Red Bee's secret identity is Rick Raleigh, assistant district attorney in Superior City, Oregon.[1] His modus operandi is to put on a red and pink costume and, with his trained bees and "stinger gun," fight Nazis and gangsters. His favorite bee is named Michael and lives inside his belt buckle for use in special circumstances.

He was a member of the World War II-era All-Star Squadron until he was killed by the Nazi supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg.

His ghost has appeared at various points in the superhero career of Jack Knight, also known as Starman.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit




  • Stinger Gun
  • Trained Bees


The Freedom Fighters were relocated to a parallel world, one called "Earth-X", where Nazi Germany had won World War II. The team was featured in its own series for 15 issues (1976-1978), in which it temporarily left Earth-X for "Earth-One" (where most DC titles are set).

In 1981, some Quality Characters became recurring guest-stars of All-Star Squadron, a superhero-team title set on "Earth-Two", the locale for DC's WWII-era superheroes, and at a time prior to when the Freedom Fighters were supposed to have left for Earth-X. They later appeared with the rest of DC's superheroes in Crisis on Infinite Earths, a story that was intended to eliminate the confusing histories that DC had attached to its characters by retroactively merging the various parallel worlds into one. The Freedom Fighters became a mere splinter group of the All-Star Squadron.


  • Red Bee is mentioned by Plastic Man as having been a friend and drinking buddy in an issue of JLA.
