Albert Elwood was a scientist on Earth-One who simply wanted to mimic the comic book legend of the original Crimson Avenger, who really existed on Earth-Two. To that end, Elwood created various devices for his crime fighting which gave him both a variety of awesome abilities and awful results. Albert's weaponry included a flying remote control car, a gun that shoots rings of fire, inflates matter and projects Kryptonite. And each only wore the full faced mask, flowing cape and body-wide spandex once before retiring for good. However, while trying to defeat the criminal Octopus Gang, this Crimson Avenger was more a nuisance than an ally of Superman and Batman. In the end, however, he was able to assist the World's Finest team in defeating the crooks, and then retired.
Joe Savo had himself been inspired into becoming a criminal clone of his world's Crimson Avenger, and thus was a nuisance of the golden age original version on Earth-Two. Betraying his crooked colleague Gap Morgan, Savo was ultimately defeated by the Avenger himself and presumably had a lengthy stay incarcerated.
