Hello, citizens, Mr. Scarlet here.
Before Daredevil donned the red and yellow, I was a District Attorney by day, crimefighter by night.
Before Batman offered to adopt Robin, I had already adopted my sidekick, Pinky.
Before Adam Strange put fin on his head, I had a paisley-thing. Before Sandman got Kirby-ized and slapped on a purple holster, and I had a yellow one.
Before Tony Stark even started shaving, I had a cheesy moustache.
Though mostly forgotten now, I was a true pioneer. Sorry you didn't vote my comeback; I would have looked great in the JSA. And I could have prosecuted that villain, Atom-Smasher, for them! I could have dated the Crimson Avenger and, together, we'd have painted the town red! Oh, well...
