The Covers of The Avenger


Long before Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, Richard Henry Benson was The Avenger.  Benson was a globe-trotting adventurer and millionaire who, with his team of assistants, battled evil wherever he found it.  From 1939 to 1942, his adventures were detailed in The Avenger Magazine.  The majority were written by Paul Ernst under the pen named Kenneth Robeson.

There were 24 issues of The Avenger.  The majority of them featured covers by artist Harold Winfield Scott.  Have a look at a few of them below:
