THE AVENGER: THE JUSTICE INC. FILES

Written by Robin Wayne Bailey, Will Murray and David Michelinie, cover by E.M. Gist, edited by Joe Gentile and Howard Hopkins.

Now, the greatest crime-fighter of the 40s returns in a stunning collection of original action-packed tales of adventure, intrigue and revenge and even a chilling showdown with the Lord of Vampires himself!  

See it here...for the first and only time anywhere...these two pulp titans collide... The Avenger meets the uncompromising relentless justice of The Spider! See the never before told origin of The Avenger's personal weapons "Mike" and "Ike"!  

In the roaring heart of the crucible, steel is made. In the raging flame of personal tragedy, men are sometimes forged into something more than human.  Life was bliss for millionaire adventurer Richard Henry Benson until the fateful day crime and greed took away his wife and younger daughter and turned him into something more than human.   

Driven by loss, compelled by grief, he becomes a chilled impersonal force of justice, more machine than man, dedicated to the destruction of evildoers everywhere. A figure of ice and steel, more pitiless than both, Benson has been forged into an avatar of vengeance, possessed of superhuman genius and supernormal power. His frozen face and pale eyes, like ice in a polar dawn, only hint at the terrible force the underworld heedlessly invoked upon itself the day they created... The Avenger!

When a mobster's attempt to destroy evidence goes horribly wrong, Quinn finds himself blinded by acid and hopelessly broken.
