Synopsis for The Crimson Avenger: "The Zombie Killers"

A headline on a newspaper by the Globe-Leader read that F. Thorpe had been the third gangster who had been the victim of a mystery killing.

Later that night, the Crimson Avenger climbed the fire escape of the gangster Red Nelson's apartment and found that only he and Little Joe were present and that the others had not arrived yet. In the apartment, two men approached Red and Joe at gunpoint, killing Joe. Suddenly, the Crimson Avenger entered and pointed his guns at the two gunmen. Crimson noticed that the gunmen were not shooting him and that they acted like mechanical men and did not talk. Next, Crimson went downstairs to catch a gang car and grabbed onto it. The two gangsters ran into something in order to knock the Avenger off. Some criminals picked up Crimson and incarcerated him. When, the vigilante was left alone, he disappeared by the time the criminals returned. The Crimson Avenger deduced that somebody had to be controlling the criminals' minds. The Crimson disguised himself as one of the criminals to avoid being captured again. He learned that the criminals planned to sacrifice Linda Perry, an heiress who had been kidnapped earlier. Suddenly, the Crimson Avenger emerged and defeated the criminals, freeing Linda. When the police arrived, the Crimson made his way out. The police believed that the Crimson Avenger was the one who had controlled the criminals and planned to use them to kill gangsters and take over.
