History[]

Avenger2

Paul Cannon was a physics teacher at a comprehensive school by day, but by night became the Avenger, a masked crimefighter who battled foes the law had failed to touch with the aid of high tech equipment of his own design. He was slightly hampered in this by young Dave Henderson, one of his students, who suspected his teacher of being the hero, and was pursued by the police, who considered him to be an outlaw vigilante. His arch-enemy was Ultra-Man.
