History[]

As a child, the man who would become the Crusader witnessed his parents' murder at the hands of a common criminal and dedicated his life thereafter to protecting society from those who would prey on it. He spent years training himself for his mission, mastering the sciences of criminology and detection as well as every known fighting style and honing his body to the peak of human perfection before donning the costume of The Crusader and launching himself into the fray, a one man army intent on ridding the world of crime.

Unfortunately, he was shot dead by a petty thief on his first attempt. Sometimes, the universe just doesn't follow the rules of heroic fiction.

The Crusader strip was apparently created for Frantic, subsequently appeared in Rampage #41 and was reprinted again in The Daredevils #10 Obviously, it was a not very subtle Batman spoof.
