Powers & Weapons: Avenger is a highly skilled unarmed combatant and an excellent marksman. He has a bionic right eye that allows him to see in the dark, and an acoustic sensor that replaces his left ear, giving him enhanced hearing. The Avenger wears a suit of light body armor, and wears a utility belt in which he stores a variety of items, such as gas masks, surveillance bugs, and single-shot weapons. He has a VTOL aircraft known as the Starjet and the Dissolver pistol--all of which are his own inventions.
The Avenger is based upon the character originally created by Dick Ayers.
